This is one of the best concerts that I have seen in my several decades on this planet. As I watched, all I could think of was how wonderful it would be to be there. Beyonce is just awesome. She is multitalented and this concert showcases all of those talents....her singing, dancing, and creativity (she participated, as she says on the video, in planning and staging the show...and WOW!!....did she ever deliver.
Her choice of costumes were perfect for the various sections of the show. After seeing the concert I have a greater appreciation for a couple of songs (Hip Hop Star, The First Time I Said No etc.) that I was not too fond of when I bought the CD.
Now when I listen to the album I automatically visualize her performing them.
The staging and lighting were fabulous, I really liked the visuals for "a gift from virgo" and "summertime".
There was not one aspect of the show that I did not like....I have watched it at least a half dozen times...and I find something new to appreciate each time I watch it.
The special features sections is off the hook!
I have read some of the other critical commentary criticizing her voice, her routine with the audience, etc. The comments are wack! Beyonce gives a wonderful performance. Someone even had the nerve to say she was no Janet Jackson... Now I very much love Janet Jackson, but if it came to a singing contest....Beyonce would blow her away. If Janet could not entertain and dance, she would have never made it on her voice alone...the same for madonna! (another person someone said was better)...At least Beyonce can act! She can act better than Janet as well.
This DVD is ten times better than the Destiny's Child Concert video....now that was a big disappointment.
I absolutely love this concert DVD..my only regret was that it had to end... It left me wanting more...and that is the hightest compliment you can pay any entertainer.
