Juan Gabriel is most likely Mexico's greatest living singer/songwriter. This 2-CD set captures a truely spectacular live performance. The second disc is nothing short of a masterpiece. Backed by a full chorus, symphonic orchestra, some of the country's finest mariachis, and rythme section, Gabriel brings it all together in a master production that truely captures the power of such a grand live preformance. Even listenners with little comprehension of Spanish can apreciate the passion and power of this music. The medly "Hasta Te Conoc'", which comprises the first half of disc 2, is classic!

Most live albums don't do justice to the artist or his work. Not the case with Juan Gabriel. His live albums are his best and "En el Palacio de Bellas Artes" (Mexico City) is no exception. This album doesn't come to immediate "life" as does "Celebrando 25 Anos en el Palacio de Bellas Artes," but when the Mariachi move in about midway through the first CD, Gabriel really comes to life and there's no stopping him after that. He's got all the classics covered, most versions superior to his studio work. The "Hasta que te conoci" medley (25 minutes beginning on disc 2) and "Viva Mexico" are wildly exciting. A sidebar: If you are interested in the videos (2 volumes) and wonder what's on which volume because the songs aren't listed, Vol. I ends 15 minutes into the "Hasta que te conoci" medley. The songs in the vidoes follow the order of the CD song listing except that there's a lot of extra music on the videos because they total 180 minutes and the CDs about 100 minutes.

En el palacio de las bellas artes was my introduction to Juan Gabriel. What a n explosive introduction it was! His music is truly beautiful and exemplif ies his ability to capture the emotions, hopes and fears of everyday living. an energetic performance electrifying and tangible energy flow between performer and audience.

Great performance, excellent show. Makes you feel like you're actually n the concert. This disc is a must have, even if you don't speak Spanish, the music and the orchestra is amazing. You'll enjoy it.

For years I had been trying to replace this concert without luck of finding it at the music stores in Cancun then my wife set me up with a direct link to this. It took her barely a minute to find it. Im sooooo happy with the delivery time and even morenwith the quality of the sound.

Juan Gabriel is at his best in this performance! His vocal and emotional ranges are extraordinary, and the audience is totally enraptured, singing along, knowing every word of the songs, which is very contagious to the listener. The DVD would be the best way to view the performance since Gabriel is the ultimate performer!
