Amazon.ca

Even before he steps out onto the stage, the audience is on its feet clapping and screaming for Barry Manilow. Walking out and launching into "Could It Be Magic?" Manilow proves his pipes are as strong and clear as ever and his suits still dapper. He promises "beautiful melodies, passionate lyrics, great grooves, and maybe even some swiveling hips" to the delight of the sold-out house. The video was filmed in Nashville in February 2000 and includes half an hour of footage not included in the direct TV broadcast.

A consummate showman, Manilow performs 24 of his biggest hits accompanied by full orchestra. "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again" speaks to everyone whose heart has been broken but holds out for love. During "Can't Smile Without You," the audience holds up signs bearing smiley faces, hearts, and "ME" in hopes that Manilow will pick them for his traditional duet. "Bandstand Boogie," the long-time theme song for American Bandstand, rocks the house. Then Manilow brings it down for perennial favorite, "Mandy," which segues into "Even Now."

Manilow's timing is impeccable, and he knows exactly how to work the adoring crowd. The accordion interlude is particularly amusing, as is "Flight of the Bumblebee" played on a kazoo. Mixing pop, jazz, disco, and big band, Manilow moves smoothly through the two-hour set, alternately sitting at the piano or standing at the mike. The bluesy "That's Life" gets an infusion of energy from audience participation, and "Copacabana" is just as infectious as ever (with Manilow doing a little of that hip-swiveling). Ending with a heartfelt encore of "Stars in the Night," Manilow Live! is a must-have for fans of the man. --Dana Van Nest --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the Best $20 music DVD purchases you'll make Oct. 16 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I'm 27 and if you look at my music-DVD collection you would laugh...Metallica, Sinatra, Dave Matthews, Barry Manilow. Buy this disc. Even if you dont wnt to necessarily watch the DVD, you can put on the DVD, shut off the TV, and listen to one of the best Barry discs you will ever hear. Every song you want to hear from Barry is on this disc, and its in DTS format for superior sound quality to CD (I am assuming you have a HT set-up at home). Remember the first time you heard a CD and you were outright amazed at the difference in sound quality compared to tapes? You'll have the same feeling about DVD compared to CD after hearing this. Even without the center channel the sound is far superior. The fact that he plays with a real live full orchestra as compared to other shows he does where they are just taped tracks that he basically sings over is another reason to buy this DVD. The sound quality is just great. All in all, this is a must buy for anyone who remotely likes Manilow. He plays all his classics (every one), a few new songs, and does justice to 3 Sinatra songs on this DVD.

Best Manilow show currently avaiable Oct. 2 2000
By Luiz Otavio Barros - Published on Amazon.com
This show is for fans and non fans alike. It's amazing. Barry is in great voice, his selection of songs is superb and the orchestra sounds divine. "Every single day" and "Stars in the night" (from his forthcoming broadway musical "Harmony") alone are worth the 20 something dollars you pay for this DVD. They're some of the most beautiful songs I have EVER heard by ANY performer. Rivetting. They'll take your breath away. No wonder Rolling Stone has called him "the showman of our generation".

Manilow Live ROCKS! July 8 2000
By Mary Leininger - Published on Amazon.com
I was in the audience for the taping of this show. The atmosphere in the building was so electrified, it's a wonder all the fuses didn't blow throughout Nashville. I have seen the shortened preview of this show (6 songs were cut from the original concert) shown in June on DirecTV. The energy during the live performance was not lost on the tape at all. Barry gave 1000% of himself that night for this performance. He's amazing and proves that he undeniably is the "showman of our generation." Barry tenderly carresses each ballad with his sexy voice and makes you want to get up and dance to the upbeat numbers. His new songs from "Harmony" will leave you breathless. All of his hits are there, masterfully performed. If you aren't already a fan, you will be after you see this concert! I'm so glad to get it in its original length! Barry is amazing. You won't be disappointed!

Barry Manilow: Manilow Live! July 9 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This concert performance by Barry Manilow was recorded at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in February 2000, and he is accompanied by a 30-piece orchestra. He sings many of his greatest hits including "Could It Be Magic?", "Mandy", "Weekend In New England", "One Voice" and "Copacabana" There is also a tribute to Frank Sinatra which was a real crowd pleaser as well as two songs from the musical HARMONY. Barry's diverse musical style shines in this performance, and the excitement of the audience is also captured with several standing ovations! I would recommend this concert very highly.

Almost like being there! Jan. 28 2002
By Just One Voice - Published on Amazon.com
I have been attending Barry Manilow concerts for his entire career. It's been an wonderful experience watching Barry evolve and mature over the years.
I've always felt Barry is at his best with a full orchestra as he is in this performance. Turn the lights down in the room while you're watching this concert and you can almost feel like you're there.
Barry's showmanship is superb in this concert. His rapport with the audience gets better and better over the years. His fans love when he calls someone from the audience onstage to sing a duet with him on "Can't Smile Without You". The fan he chose for this concert displayed so much exuberance! She was a good representation of what all of his longtime fans feel.
My only disappointment was that he did not have his very talented backup singer Debra Byrd along for this one. However, Barry is at a point in his career that he no longer needs to share the stage with anyone.
I am reviewing this DVD after just coming back from seeing him in person on his 2002 tour. As a die-hard Barry fan, it's difficult to compare the two concerts. They are very different.
MANILOW LIVE is a hard DVD to top. Barry's talent, his love of music, and his deep respect for other musicians leaps from the stage and touches your soul. Enjoy!
