LUCIANO PAVAROTTI was the rare artist who could easily bridge the divide between classical and popular music. Together with an impressive roster of the best-known names in rock, pop and jazz, Pavarotti entertained millions of people around the world with his "Pavarotti & Friends" concerts. This release is the first time that these tracks have been brought together in one album! Rarely has such a glittering array of singing legends from such varied genres been brought together at one time--on both DVD and CD! Featuring Bryan Adams, Andrea Bocelli, Bon Jovi, Bono/The Edge/Brian Eno, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Celine Dion, The Eurythmics, Elton John, Lionel Richie, Frank Sinatra, Sting and Zucchero.

For the audiophiles & videophiles, this DVD shouldn't disappoint. Even though this DVD appears to span a couple of decades, James Brown's performance for example, looks exceptionally crisp, as does the Eurythmics', just to name two off the top of my head. They look great on my 72" screen. I'm assuming that when Pavarotti is sitting while singing, these would have been from more recent performances and would tend to have slightly better video quality. Some of the older performances, judging by the "less aged" looking stars, Pavarottti is standing and presumably healthier...The old stuffy Pavarotti fan might scoff, but the open-minded music lover will love this DVD and just might find themselves singing James Brown AND Pavarotti's version of This is a Man's World from now on...I know that has been the worm in my ear for months now lol. Now I have to wonder how JB and Pavarotti would have done on "Sex Machine" lol. We'll never know...Buy this!!!
RIP JB & Pavarotti!
The range of stage settings that were smoothly integrated with transitions between presentations, seemingly a different stage setting for each featured companion singer, was astonishing.
My one disappointment was seeing a number of singers in the final act who a) misbehaved on stage (men talking to each other and generally being jerks) and b) did not make the cut from the live version to the dvd, including someone who to my old eyes looked remarkably like Liza Minelli.
If Pavarotti and Friends [VHS] and Pavarotti & Friends 2 [VHS] were in DVD I would be ordering them today--since they are not, this is opportunity lost for the producer who is not keeping up with technology.
