Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As music DVDs go, sweet dreams must surely be made of this. Quite apart from carrying a great performance (although the music production is perhaps too sanitary overall), the label appears to have gone all-out to ensure that pretty much every extra feature that the DVD format supports is represented here in the best possible way. The performance is taken from the final (London Docklands Arena) date of the 1999 tour in support of Amnesty International and Greenpeace and includes all the classics you'd expect. There are some nice multi-angle options on a couple of the songs, a self-congratulatory and patronizing interview-documentary section (but better to have it than not), a discography, a complete lyrics section, and a rather dull gallery of photographs that looks like a way of using up the PR department's leftovers. But the music's great if you're a fan and pretty damn good even if you're not. As a demonstration of how all music DVDs should be produced--i.e., stuffed to the last possible byte with all kinds of material--this release is the business. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Concert Video far surpasses modest "Peace" album July 15, 2000
Format:DVD
How does she do it? How exactly does Annie Lennox, a truly brilliant voaclist in all of her studio recordings, manage to regularly surpass herself in her live concert recordings?
I bought Annie's Central Park concert on VHS once it became available in the US, and was blown away by the way Annie, the consummate performer, cranked up the intensity of her vocals for the crowd, and found myself wishing for the features that DVD brings: clearer picture and sound, ability to easily slide back and review nuances of performance and the ability to jump back and for the between elements.
Luckily for us, the Peacetour DVD delivers, hands down.
First off, the performance itself is spectacular - not just a live run-through of the Peace album, but a retrospective of all the Eurythmics hits you'd want from this "reunion" tour.
But beyond the magic of the concert, this DVD truly delivers on the promise of the DVD format. In addition to the concert, the DVD includes 60-minute "behind-the-concert" documentary, which features additional performances of all of the "peace" tracks.
The disk also includes comprehensive lyrics of all of the songs, as well as a hyperlinked discography, which allows the viewer to jusp directly to the performance of a song within the concert from the album track listing.
Bottom line: if you even kinda like the Eurythmics, buy this DVD, and it'll make you a die-hard fan. If you know and love Annie but don't know the older Eurythmics stuff so well, fear not; this DVD brings you enough energy, excitement and great performnces to bring you up to speed.
If you don't know 'em at all; you should STILL by this DVD - it's great music, performed and presented extraordinarily well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living Proof That Not All Artists Are Made In A Studio February 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I've read other reviews posted here and what I think they have all failed to touch on is this: Live is the proof in the pudding! If you can listen to the stripped down to guitar versions of some of their most popular songs they render here like only they can, and NOT have chills listening to Annie break her heart up into pieces and vocalize it, then you are the one who placed the chill in her heart.Watch Dave look at her as she sings and pick up on when she is going to hold a note out and when she is not while backing her with nothing but a few strums of a guitar! THAT! Is the meaning of ART. Listening to the different arrangements they have come up with for some of their most popular songs is reason enough to buy this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Annie Lennox is a goddess June 30, 2000
Format:DVD
I am a huge Annie Lennox fan; her voice is just unbeatable. I pre-ordered this DVD the second I saw it announced; I only wish they'd put Annie's "Live from Central Park" on DVD!
This disc met my expectations, and then some. The menus are clean and cool, even containing a complete discography with selected music clips. The concert it's self is excellent, old and new Eurythmics tunes plus a few of Annie's own from Diva. There is also a documentary on the disc.
The encoding is impecable, sharp and vibrant. It was shot on video and processed through 'film look', which usually looks very fake, but it was well done and looks natural. (A couple of the songs have 2 extra camera angles you can toggle between, and you can see that they _weren't_ processed through film look.. see if you can tell the difference!)
My only problem with this DVD is that it's a dual layer disc, and there is a layer change right at the beginning of chapter 5 during the concert. If you have an unbuffered DVD player, as do I, it winds up pausing for a second just as Dave begins his guitar into. It really stinks. But I put the DVD into a Mac G4 with a DVD player, and it plays through the layer change without pause, so if you happen to run into this, no, your disc isn't defective.. your DVD player just doesn't buffer through the layer change. It makes me want to go out and buy a new DVD player just "fix" this disc :)
Now like I said if we can get "Annie Lennox Live from Central Park" on DVD, and a new solo album, I'd be in heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars The're fantastic in this concert!!! June 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw the PEACE Tour concert on DirecTV in April 2000. Watching Annie and Dave perform, entralled me to watch it eight times over the course of the month. I have been waiting for PEACE to come out in DVD format. Nothing else has enticed me to purchase a DVD player before, up until now. I already had Annie's solo work and the Eurythmics Greatest Hits. The PEACE concert made me realize again what a great musical team Annie and Dave create. Seeing them without a video theme and glam slam makeup was a visual treat. PEACE is more reality based, besides being for an excellent cause, Greepeace and Amnesty International. The PEACE concert made me go out and purchase all of their past music. I love seeing them in their most 'mature' stage of their lives. Annie's deeper and mature voice and Dave's seasoned guitar playing is fabulous. If you want to see Annie in a reality based environment, I also urge you to purchase her Central Park video. After you see this PEACE concert, I guarantee you will love them again or even more. Yes, the military look takes some getting use to, but I like it. It brings them down to earth, and does not get in the way of their wonderful music. This concert has it all: past, present, future(?). Buy it and see it for yourself!!
