Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational Barry Jan. 23 2004
I just received the DVD today (ahead of schedule) and was compelled to write. I have always enjoyed Barry since he began in the 70s, and amazingly in this 2000 concert he sounds as if he hasn't lost one bit of his marvelous touch and range. He has evolved over the years into a master showman, and in many ways he is better than he was years ago. He truly loves what he does, and he displays the love in his smile, and mannerisms and with his interactions with his fans in the audience. You feel privileged to be a part of it. Just try and hold back the tears when you enjoy his classic duet "I Can't Smile Without You" with Michelle, the audience member he selects. Her heartfelt love and admiration for him, and his ability to capture the moment will have you envy the experience she'll treasure forever. Not surprisingly, the picture quality and audio are incredible! Wow, a real treasure that I'll be listening to and watching for years to come. Thanks Amazon for suggesting the DVD.

I was overwhelmed with the "feeling" in this DVD "treat". I've always loved the Manilow hits, but have never seen Barry in concert.
I never realized the "warmth" this wonderful man has. As he sang, he "felt" his music. Also, his interchange with a fan from the audience, who sang a duet with him, was truly "touching".
For whatever reason, I've never thought of Barry Manilow as sexy, but this DVD totally changed my mind. He is just a living doll. What I would give to have someone with that caring, charisma and humor in my life.
Seems Mr. Manilow lives next to Suzanne Somers and they have become wonderful friends. How I envy her. I bet he's a great friend.
As I watched this DVD I couldn't help but think to myself what a wonderful face this man has. That warm, wonderful, gentle smile. And . . . those eyes. You could see the purity in this man's soul. He has, in my opinion, the face of an "angel", and he and his music are truly a "gift" straight from God.
This DVD contains a song I used to love, which I had forgotten about. Never one of his big hits, but a wonderful song called "All The Time". I felt the tears on my cheek when I listened to him sing that song.
If you want a true "experience", purchase this DVD. I promise you, you will receive the "warm fuzzies" more than once.
I so enjoyed this DVD, that I bought his music "boxed" set, which is a great buy. Eagerly awaiting my delivery.
I hope Barry considers doing another live concert on DVD in the near future. WOW! What a wonderful entertainer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Video, NOT the DVD Aug. 11 2002
By A Customer
Barry Manilow gets five stars. It's this horrible, defective DVD that gets 1 star. Those who have sung the praises of this DVD must have got lucky. The quality of this DVD is the WORST I've ever seen! Image Entertainment, who released this DVD, is known for their substandard releases. They do an even more incredibly poor job with Barry Manilow Live! The sound reproduction is fine, but nothing extraordinary. Now, why do I say buy the video? The DVD is severely defective and flawed!! I returned my first DVD to Amazon.com for a replacement. It literally stopped halfway through and would not continue playing. The second DVD I got is just as bad. They both skip, jump and freeze. This occurs about half-way through the concert. If this happens at the same spot on two different DVDs (Incidentally, you can't finish watching the DVD because it freezes and skips too much), then many of the DVDs must be poorly manufactured. I wish now I would have bought the video instead. Even the DVD extras don't work correctly. The concert itself (what I've been able to watch) and Manilow himself are superb. Manilow even sounds better than ever and I would swear has taken some voice lessons as his phrasing rivals that of any Sinatra or Darin or the like. So, if you love Manilow, get this - JUST BUY IT ON VIDEO, NOT THE DVD! So much for DVDs being infallible - believe me, they are!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man In Manilow! June 13 2002
This concert show is very good. Done as if you were sitting in the front row center, Manilow entices you with song and witt.
His concert personality is absolutely down-to-earth. Making fun of his nose, family, first learned instrament and his age. He knows that humor opens up a lot of good feelings.
Then he hits you with his music and his voice. Although he has always been criticized by not being "cool" to listen too, Manilow really "reals" you into his music, his show and into him.
He cares about his music, what it means and where it goes. More importantly he seems to really care about the audience and what you think.
This DVD is a must for every fan and non-fan alike. The best part is Barry actually does a commentaru about the concert and all the inside of puttting a show on. From the earpiece falling out to the band, lighting, wardrobe, sets and crew. He really talks about what a lot of hard work it is toput on a concert.
Now, I must admit I am biased. And it would be fair to you, the reader, if I didn't tell you that I have seen him 19 times in concert since 1976. Yes I am a fan. I have seen 11 of his "tours" and the last was at the newly open Kodak Theatre in Hollywood California as the first concert performer to perform there.
Need I say more. P.S. Here at The Mayflower is his best Album/CD yet!
