If you're not moved by this performance, stick to listening to 'Lady In Red', thinking it is the best song Chris De Burgh ever wrote. A lot of my favorites are not performed ('Moonlight And Vodka', 'Crusader', 'Carry On', etc.), but then an artist like Chris De Burgh cannot possibly sing all his best songs spanning over 30 years of songwriting.

I was certainly skeptical and decided to buy this with some reservations. Some other reviews here were downright unkind and made this DVD seem like something you wouldn't even use as a coaster.
Well, to each his own, I guess...and we all look for and expect different things.
This DVD shows an intimate performance - although in a large hall, it's C de B solo, so there's no band or other band members to hide behind and he comes across as very candid and truly enjoying performing solo. It's remarkable to also see how strong an instrumentalist (i.e. piano and guitar player) he is to be able to carry a full concert without anything else in the form of musical backing. I like how, at one point, he wanders around the audience, singing a medley of songs. To some that would be cheesy, self-absorbed, comical or even 'what-the-hell-is-he-doing??' (as evidenced by some reviews here), but I thought it a very appreciative and humble way to connect with his audience, as if to say, 'Thank You for coming to the show. I am not up here and you down there; we are all together so let's have some fun together.'

There's also a bit where it shows his fans getting ready for the show and also C de B talking about his love of wine. Well, why not? If you adore his music, it's fun to see a bit of what other interests he has.

A MUST for anyone who knows Chris DeBurgh music. This dvd concert is absolutely incredible. Intercut with background visuals and closeups of the audience.....Chris walks around the fans as comfortable as he's walking around his house! The sound is superb also.....the acoustic guitar is just outstanding.

Definately a five star rating!
