I purchased this DVD because I am a fan of Beyonce. But, WOW did I get a surprise! This concert production is amazing, not only was the stage production fantastic; I was totally blown away by the versatility and range of Beyonce's voice! She has blossomed into a Mega-star, and it is based on true talent. Beyonce is a truly talented individual, the production is multi-faceted based on the versatility of her talent. This concert has something for every fan, young, old. I enjoyed the many different production numbers in the show and the genuine sincerity and love Beyonce has for her audience and entertaining.You come away with the feeling that Beyonce loves to entertain you with all her heart,body and soul! I REPEAT! BEYONCE HAS BECOME A MASTER ENTERTAINER!
Watching Beyoncé Knowles descend upsidedown from above during the opening notes of 'Baby Boy' to a roaring London crowd (albeit to a prerecorded Sean Paul) gives me tingles all over my body. You see, I had been recalling a similar moment from when I saw Beyoncé live on the amazing Verizon Ladies First Tour with Alicia Keys. On this DVD of her first ever international solo tour (with great production I might add), you will get extras, including a long-running sequence of various behind-the-scenes footage you can chose to play back-to-back, not to mention B's curvy eye candy for us guys. The DVD also comes with a CD featuring three remixes and three great new songs, including the beautiful 'Wishing On a Star.' Favorite moments come from energetic 'Work It Out,' sultry 'Speechless (she's singing to me),' and 'Dangerously In Love.' What is great about Beyoncé here is her connection with the audience and her ability to show a man love, which is the most refreshing part of her solo debut coming off of the men-bashing DC era. For all of its worth, every R&B music buff should have this one. Afterwards you won't believe that she's just getting started.
Beyonce's dvd is SUPERB!! there's an aura about her, that when i saw her emerge onto the stage, i got goosebumps. Beyonce is someone who men desire, and women find unthreatenings! innocent & sexy all @ the same time! you are going to LOVE this DVD!
