Editorial Reviews

The press just raved about this show, and this Blu-Ray disc is earning its own raves for its 1080p high-definition picture and uncompressed 5.1 surround and stereo sound. Not only does she sing the classics her fans desire, but also 14 songs performed in concert for the first time! Bonus songs (two by her special guests, vocal group Il Divo) join Funny Girl; People; Smile; My Shining Hour; My Man; Evergreen; Come Rain or Come Shine; The Way We Were; My Way; Down with Love , and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Streisand . . . simply amazing!!! April 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Those of us fortunate enough to have bared witness to the career of this amazing artist since the beginning, know we have been and continue to be in the presence of absolute one-of-a-kind greatness. Those that haven't and think they know and have heard greatness, you can't even imagine.

Even if one isn't into this genre of music, you owe it to yourself to purchase this DVD and experience some of what so many of us have had the pleasure of for what's approaching now 50 years! I tell you, you will become magnificently enlightened because there's been no other vocalist to date that can come close. Yes, she IS that much better than any other.

You will hear the message in every song, every expression. A message of truth and passion from an artist who must have been inside the heart of every songwriter whose songs she has interpreted through her soul and her magnificent vocal instrument. There can be no other answer to how she is able to convey the depth and meaning of a song, all the while commanding you to listen to the lyrics and feel the meaning the way the composer had intended, and all without you even realizing it. You will find yourself waiting to exhale after every powerful note, but the greatest power is in her ability to deliver a note so softly, so gently, as nearly a whisper--it will leave you breathless. I'm sorry, but you don't need to scream and high-power through every song to show you can sing, like so many today. The true artistry is in the nuances, the subtleties.

I recommend this DVD to anyone truly interested in having your heart and soul, not just your ears, entertained. And when you're done with this magnificent selection, treat yourself to Streisand from the beginning, from Funny Girl through the years to this piece of work . . . then you too will understand what millions of us have been experiencing for nearly five decades, and why we feel we have been in the 'presence of true greatness'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streisand at her best April 27, 2009
Format:DVD
I was there, in 2006: Barbra in Las Vegas.
And again in 2007, in Berlin, Dublin and London.
Four wonderful concerts - and finally the DVD is here. It's everything I hoped for - and more. Barbra's simply brilliant: she's in great voice, sings songs she hasn't sung in ages and is very, very relaxed: she really seems to be enjoying herself.
This (Florida)concert is very close to what I saw in Vegas and Europe. The Bush skit is missing - many people don't mind, but I would have loved to have seen it here - even as a bonus.
The quality of this DVD is amazingly good. it has been shot in HD/widescreen and it shows. Both the picture and audio look and sound great, although this version of the concert is completely blown out of the water by the Blu-ray edition - but that's a different story.

Highly recommended - for the casual fan, the hard-core fan (like me) and anyone who simply enjoys great music - and a great performance.

Oh - and the Anaheim '94 disc, plus the bonus Making of the Broadway Album are more than icing on the cake. The Anaheim show features one of Barbra's greatest performances ever, while The Broadway album is one of Streisand's top albums - ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbra's First Blu-ray is a Stunner! May 2, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Live In Concert 2006 far surpasses all previous Barbra Streisand concerts released on home video in the artistry of its production, from Barbra's marvelous performance to appealing staging, elegant lighting, dazzling sound, and overall warmth. Indeed, the Blu-ray presentation is the ideal way to enjoy the show, as it realizes the true enhanced resolution captured by the many high definition cameras in Sunrise, Florida's BankAtlantic Center on that special night in October 2006. Seeing the amazing concert in its entirety relives the memorable evening my wife and I shared with Barbra in Atlanta only a week later and promises to be a wondrous experience for first-timers. Barbra's complete program is here, including her humor-filled Q&A with the audience via note cards, shout-outs, and a surprise short version of "Stoney End." The George Bush comedy sketch is excluded but not missed, while the bonus features include Barbra's extraordinarily delicate "Nobody's Heart (Belongs To Me)" backed only by piano, "When The Sun Comes Out" (an early `60s concert number), and "The Woman In The Moon" filmed with regular lighting and standard definition at L.A.'s Staples Center at the end of the tour. Barbra delivers an inspiring introduction to the song and to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Barbara Boxer in the audience. Il Divo's "My Way" appears right before "Come Rain Or Come Shine," with their other two songs viewable among the bonus features. "The People Behind The Scenes" is a neat 6-minute segment with comments about Barbra from manager Marty Erlichman ("I still get goosebumps"), Jay Landers ("She discovered new meaning in songs she sang when she was younger"), director Gary Smith ("This is forever and should be"), Richard Jay Alexander, and conductor-arranger Bill Ross.

Format:DVD
The Concerts DVD documents another milestone in Barbra's career.

2006 is simply Streisand at 64. Fresh. Surprising. Intimate. Silly. Supreme. After a dozen viewings I'm thinking this is Barbra's greatest concert recording.

If you 'GET' Barbra, get the 2006 concert asap. I'm not giving any spoilers, keep the surprise for yourself.

My copy arrived from Amazon-UK mid March - who could wait? The inclusion of the '94 Anaheim Concert and Putting It Together (the making of the Broadway Album) makes this a must have set. The three UK discs are region free and PAL.

This is simply Barbra. Her voice, her humor, and even with her tendency to be a perfectionist, she seems relaxed.

Single Disc or Set of Three?
I am wondering the same thing. I pre-ordered the Blu-ray a week ago, but can't find anything to prove I'll get the same content featured in the DVD set. Plus you have to wait like 2 months more for the blu-ray. ALTHOUGH, the fact that it's titled "The Concerts" (plural) gives me hope... Read More
