I Am...Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
On a hot August night in 2009, Beyoncé performed in front of a small crowd at Wynn Las Vegas, documented here on two CDs and an accompanying DVD. The show is certainly a theatrical production worthy of Vegas, with Beyoncé and her large backing band energetically rolling through the singer's back catalog. On the portion of the set that begins on the second disc, she takes the crowd through her biography -- with plenty of spoken interludes and planned interruptions -- beginning with her version of Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Be Where You Are" the first song she learned, continuing through a 12-minute Destiny's Child medley and "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" her first collaboration ...

The show is certainly a theatrical production worthy of Vegas, with Beyoncé and her large backing band energetically rolling through the singer's back catalog. On the portion of the set that begins on the second disc, she takes the crowd through her biography -- with plenty of spoken interludes and planned interruptions -- beginning with her version of Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Be Where You Are" the first song she learned, continuing through a 12-minute Destiny's Child medley and "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" her first collaboration with Jay-Z, and concluding with her biggest hit to date, "Single Ladies Put a Ring on It." What makes I Am...Yours stand apart from a typical live-album cash-in is the mostly unexpected covers that are weaved into the set. Anita Baker's "Sweet Love" and Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know" a possible inspiration for "Ring the Alarm"? are treated with as much passion as the originals, while some songs are acknowledged instrumentally, like MGMT's "Electric Feel," which bridges "Get Me Bodied" and "Single Ladies." As live albums go, this is not quite destined to be one of those all-time classics; a couple missing songs and a little too much talk aside, however, the fans couldn't ask for more.

    Great Performance!

    A one night show at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas.
    Beyonce shows that she is not just a Pop singer; she has earned the
    title Entertainer. Beyonce, the all female band, and the dance crew
    put on a great show. She has the voice the ability plus style to orchestrate this top flight production. Kudos!

    I Also Recommend:

    Beyonce is one of the best of our generation.

    I was always a Beyonce skeptic,(She was a bit over the top for me in the late 90's, Bug-a-Boo? Really?). But when my brother bought her first solo album "Dangerously in Love", I found myself singing along and dancing to all of her tracks. Now here I am 7 years and 3 spectacular albums later and I am right where I began, singing and shakin' it. This latest live audio/DVD release is Beyonce at her absolute best. She is not only a fabulous performer and singer, but this shows what a truly gifted songwriter and musician she is. Her all-female band is one of the tightest I've heard, and have taken her catchy pop songs to another level. As a musician, singer, and songwriter myself I must say how much I appreciate her skill and level of performance and gladly recommend this DVD/CD set to anyone who loves to have fun while listening to great music.
