This DVD makes you feel you're among the crowd in Verona watching Jay Kay strutting his stuff on stage, even while the rains poured. In here are songs like his rendition of Bad Girls, the hits Cosmic Girl, Love Foolosophy, among others. Electric performances, awesome music and cool extras like the pre-show documentary make this DVD a must-buy and must-keep.

This stunning concert DVD has EVERYTHING going for it: great set list, superb sound, great camera work and unobtrusive editing, and a beautiful setting in the Verona (Italy) ampitheater. And then there's the infectious charisma - and incredible dancing - of singer/frontman Jay Kay.

If you're new to Jamiroquai, it's got a hip hint of 70s Stevie Wonder but with a thoroughly modern, unabashedly joyful, and gotta-dance club beats. Highly recommended.

When I first heard this band back in '94, I was "who are this guys who gave funk a twist of jazz?", great music, ideal for relaxing and dancing, the bass is incredible so is their harmony. The 90's was a very dry era for music. Few bands will be remembered for their brilliant contribution to music. Is very likely that if you have 2 cd's from this band you will buy it no matter what, but if you have only one, TRY IT!!, you will be attracted by the way these guys enjoy the music they developed, Jamiroquai music is for happy people, and their sound is unique.

I saw this concert on Bravo a couple of weeks ago. It blew my mind. I didn't even know I was a Jamiroquai fan but they had me dancing around my living room early in the morning. I can't wait to have my own copy. Can't believe it took me this long to discover a truly amazing band.

Awesome sound, great live arrangements of their best tunes, beautiful set, great musicians, HORRIBLE video editing! I agree with other reviewers that this was a great concert, but the video? WOW what a frustrating disappointment. I would have given it 5 stars but the editing ruined it for me because we hardly got to see anything but Jay Kay strutting and singing (in that order).

For those of you who wanted a "lead singer prance and dance" video this will thrill you. But those of you who wanted to actually SEE this band of funkmasters get their groove on, might as well just turn up the volume and turn off the TV because you don't get to see squat. Let me put it in numbers for you:

Proportion of video footage showing the lead singer singing lyrics 50%
Proportion of video footage showing the lead singer being pretty, squirming around, and waving his hands in the air, while some of the funkiest musicians in the business groove out off-camera 49.9%
Proportion of video footage showing the musicians 0.1%

Seriously, the average shot length of the singer is around 5 seconds. The average shot length of a musician is about 5 microseconds. We see each musician once or twice a song for about two beats, just to check and see if they're still there, then it cuts back to the singer prancing around, and he's not even that good at it. During the instrumental and solo sections, instead of showing the musicians getting funky, we see twenty-second shots of the singer shaking hands with the audience. WTF?

Anybody who knows Jamiroquai knows that this band is not just a lead singer with extras. for crying out loud there's two percussionists, and the bass player has a 5-string bass (and knows what to do with it) but the first time we see his face is in the third track, and by that time we've seen his hands maybe three times for a total of about seven notes.

Aside from that glaring problem, this video would be great. The set looks really cool, like a metal Aztec pyramid (though you hardly ever get to see it), they play some pretty cool adaptations of their tunes, and the sound is fantastic. It's just too bad because the MTV reject they found to edit the video thinks it's a Brittney Spears concert.

I love Jamiroquai. I think they're some of the funkiest, grooviest dudes around. But we only get to see one dude in this show.

This is an amazing live show. It is pouring rain and J just performs his butt off. It is just perfect Jamiroquai and the crowd is massive and loving.

I'm a big fan of Jamiroquai. However, I have only seen them live once ever and that concert was a bit of a disappointment really. It was at the Filmore in SF in late 2005. I thought the band seemed a little tired (it was their next to last stop in the US after already doing a European tour). Anway, after that I didn't think Jamiroquai was a good live band and just good on CDs. Well this DVD proves that wrong. The Verona Italy show is great. Jay doesn't let the horrible weather (heavy rain at an outdoor venue) get in his way and neither do any of the band. They put on a great show ... sounded like their album tracks and the set/stage was well done. They rocked Italians' world. If you want to see one of the top funk/rock/pop bands at their live best this is the DVD for you.

Amazing concert DVD, tons of replay value. I only wish they did Space Cowboy but this is still well worth the money.

I've enjoyed Jamiroquai's music for years, but never got a chance to see them in concert. Though it took me a while, I got my hands on this DVD and I absolutely adore it! Watching it made me dust off "A Funk Odyssey" - a CD I didn't like upon first hearing. However, the concert made me appreciate the music on it alot. One cool thing about the DVD is the multi-angle feature enabling you to view the concert from different vantage points. There's also a little documentary (mainly a camera following Jay Kay around) and that was a nice addition. I'm glad I found the DVD - a definite MUST for Jamiroquai fans.
