Editorial Reviews

"Ricky Martin Shows He's Still in Command"...His Saturday night concert at a sold out American Airlines Arena showed he's not only kept his star status, he's deepened and solidified his artistry..And he still puts on a hellaciously good show.
....The Miami Herald

"Martin is every inch the showman"
....Variety

The "Black & White Tour" kicked off during February of 2007 in Puerto Rico with a record setting run of four consecutive sold -out nights. Ricky Martin performed for over 60,000 fans and received glowing praises from the press. He has also met both critical praise and sold out stadiums and arena dates across the U.S, Latin America & Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent production! November 3, 2007
Format:DVD
I just received my pre-ordered copy of the CD/DVD combo from Tribeca. I watched the video yesterday! I loved it! I attended the concert in Anaheim on September 29th and the DVD is an excellent reminder of the most amazing and exciting concert I have ever attended. Seeing Ricky on stage in his native Puerto Rico was a thrill. There are two songs that really stand out for me on this DVD.

First is "La Bomba" I was totally blown away at the concert to see this number done at break neck speed. The regular release was done in about 4.5 minutes. The MTV Unplugged release was slightly slower and ran about 5.5 minutes. In the Black and White tour they did the whole number in probably 2.5 minutes! I stood there in awe as I watched it live on stage and laughed so hard I almost fell out. It's captured here on video for posterity! Great show Ricky!

The second great thing was to see La Marie sing "Tu Recuerdo" with Ricky. When they recorded the song for Unplugged she had just undergone breast cancer surgery and they hadn't been able to rehearse before recording it. She did an excellent job then. Here we are a few years later and she has recovered very well and looks BONITA! It was great to see her healthy and happy, they really shared a moment on stage in PR and I think you'll enjoy it! That alone is worth the price!

4.0 out of 5 stars BUY THE BLU-RAY VERSION! February 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
(Edited 12/09/08 - I've just purchased the Blu-Ray version and all I have to say is WOW what a MAJOR improvement in video quality over the SD DVD. No black bars, the aspect ratio is fixed, and the picture quality looks like an HD live broadcast. The blu-ray edition is the DEFINITIVE version to buy!)

I've been a big fan of Ricky Martin for many years now and I'm so pleased that the "Black & White" tour is available for everyone to see on DVD.

While there are a few Ricky Martin DVDs on the market this is Ricky's first actual concert tour show available on DVD (clocking in at 100 minutes) and the best stage show that Ricky has ever put together. I've seen many of Ricky's performances on stage, tv, and video and this concert is by far his most polished work.

The concert spans through 5 different "acts" (tribal, romance, revoluccion, & rave + encore) as Ricky performs many of his greatest hits such as "Por Arriba, Por Abajo," "Bella," "Livin' La Vida Loca," "The Cup Of Life," and "Tal Vez". La Mari from the group Chambao also makes an appearance to perform the duet "Tu Recuerdo" as well.

Ricky also shows off some nice capoeira moves along with a little bit of choreographed dancing, plays the congo, with some great sets and costumes throughout the show. I was also impressed by how much Ricky's vocals have improved since his first album. He has always had some great songs but I never felt that he performed ballads with sufficient passion. However it has become very apparent that he has taken his vocals to a higher level and now I can totally "feel" Ricky when he's singing songs such as "Fuego De Noche, Nieve De Dia."

To those of you who purchased the CD/DVD pack of "Black & White" (as I did) - YOU HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF!

5.0 out of 5 stars Live and in loco-motion November 30, 2007
Format:DVD
After being a fan for 7 years, sony finally got the message that Ricky Martin needs to be enjoyed LIVE. On a cd or tv show there is not the same quality that Ricky gives to a show. He is pure energy, adrenaline,and infectious to the whole audience. After seeing him live, its hard to go back, but this a a DVD to treasure and remember long after the concert is over. Enjoy, till you can expierience him live and in concert again.

Amazing beat and rhythm for the entire show and quite a surpise to see. The energy in this show is not to me missed! Hope you have a large screen TV and surround sound..I've seen this DVD 15 times it's so amazing. I had no idea his shows were so slamming and jamming.. A must see even if you are not a rickly fan which I was not until I saw this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars RICKY YOU ARE SIMPLY THE BEST ENTERTAINER IN THE WORLD! November 7, 2007
Format:DVD
I was extremely fortunate to have been in Puerto Rico for the taping of this concert DVD and when I got my copy today, I haven't been able to stop watching it! It's the next best thing to being there and now I can relive it over and over.

This is a must have for any Ricky fan, or even if you're a casual fan and just enjoy his music. This is a brilliant masterpiece showcasing Ricky as the ultimate entertainer that he is. His vocals are strong, especially during the ballads and he wrings the emotions out of every song. Fuego de Noche, a song from his very early years, is sung with raw passion, that even if you don't speak a word of Spanish (like me), you will feel the emotion. And Asignatura Pendiente, a song about Ricky's life, is about a personal a song as you can get and the way he delivers it, makes you weak in the knees. Ricky doesn't just sing the songs, he FEELS every word and makes sure his loving, attentive audience feels it too.

And of course, what Ricky Martin concert would be complete without the fun and danceable songs that make you just want to get up and dance! To La Bomba, to Drop It On Me, to Lola Lola, he gets you right into it and you won't be able to stop moving! Ricky has a way with the audience, with his charisma, that smile and of course, those electrifying hips. And can he dance!! This is what surprised me the most during this concert - Ricky needs little choreography because he knows how to move and he is every bit a professional dancer as the rest of the dancers on stage! He is truly mesmerizing!

Some people only associate Ricky Martin with his biggest US hit, Livin' La Vida Loca, but even that song was reworked into a funky beat that sounds completely different than the original and it's contemporary and upbeat.
