Video: The high definition video is razor-sharp with deep blacks and very detailed. One can see the tiny wrinkles on the skin-coloured tights that the dancers were wearing. The clever use of the large video screens to produce 3-D images enhanced the enjoyment of the concert, plus using life-sized images of artists like Justin Timberlake, Kanye West and Timbaland during her duets was very believable.
Audo: The DTS audio is even more outstanding. Madonna's voice is oh so sweet, clear and distinctive, despite of the loud screaming audience. The sound of the back-up band is recorded in top-notched fashion, with distinct sound even from my lateral speakers (9 speakers in my system). The bass is earth shattering, very tight, and simply rocks the whole house.
Contents: Now to the concert itself...Madonna is truly an icon and controls the audience throughout this 150 minute concert. To see hundreds of thousands of people clapping their hands over their heads and jumping in unison was a sight to behold. The choice of songs was also very clever. Her dancing was simply outstanding, whether she was wearing athlete shoes or high heels. The portion of Evita tribute was especially poignant, because she sang it in front of an Argentina audience. She also brought fresh life to older recordings like Borderline and Like A Prayer. There was never a dull moment. The entire concert was totally enjoyable, and the production was top-notched. It makes you feel like that you are actually there yourself.
Final thought: If you have never been to a Madonna's concert, this blu ray disc will give you a good idea why she can survive in this business for 28 years. Besides her own talent, she is surrounded by top notched people. She is indeed our "Queen of Pop". This disc is highly recommended.
I suggest everybody to buy this item if you like Madonna who have been among the very few women who have and still perform at this high level even as today.
I normally only buy concert of women of Hard Rock or Heavy Meta or even Death Metal but i have made an exeption , Madonna is among the best of her time.
While I am not a Madonna-basher and own every album and video she's put out in the last 25 years, I cannot say I truly enjoyed the Sticky and Sweet Tour on DVD. The main reason is the hyperactive editing that runs rampant throughout the 2-hour show. The camera does not stay focused on anything for more than two seconds. Instead, we have unnecessary jumps and cuts all over the place that just about give one a massive headache. I made it through to the end but I doubt I will be watching this atrocity again anytime soon.
Earlier concert DVDs such as The Girlie Show or Drowned World did not suffer from this problem. Editors need to know that this type of thing may have been cutting edge back in 2000 but this was beyond overkill.
Madonna should scale things back for her next tour and get back to basics: Good music, good dancing, eye-catching sets are all she needs to put on a decent show. She certainly doesn't need images of Britney Spears on the 12-foot screens behind her!
All griping aside, I thought the best parts were Madonna taking on her "impersonators" in "She's Not Me", and dancing among the monks in "Spanish Lesson". "Candy Shop" was a dull opener the way "Erotica" was back during the Girlie Show and this tour lacked the spark of Confessions and earlier ones. I did notice she seemed to enjoy herself more here though and was more interactive with the audience.
