Sheryl Crow fans looking for a straightforward concert video can't go wrong with this 83-minute set, recorded in Detroit during the Globe Sessions tour of early 1999. Appearing in black leather pants and a black string-strap top, Cheryl's poised and professional, driving through 15 songs (9 from The Globe Sessions) with studio-set precision, despite the handicap of a receptive but oddly lifeless audience. (Perhaps the Motor City was merely idling that night.) Moving from acoustic guitar to bass, electric guitar, harmonica (on "It Don't Hurt"), and finally piano (for an exquisite rendition of "Home"), the Grammy winner makes it clear that she's as musically skilled as she is drop-dead gorgeous. Accompanied by a flawless six-piece band (with honorable mentions to guitarist Peter Stroud and violinist Lorenza Ponce), Crow rocks when it's time to rock (the climactic jam on "Riverwide" and "If It Makes You Happy" being standouts), but her strength remains in the more delicate passages of "Am I Getting Through," "The Difficult Kind," "Stong Enough," and the aforementioned "Home," an encore visually enhanced by rural images projected on an upstage scrim.

Crow dedicates the set-closing rocker "Mississippi" to Bob Dylan, and even if a few favored hits are not included, this remains a noteworthy performance. Camera coverage is slick and editing tight, and while VHS viewers will likely be satisfied, the DTS DVD is mildly problematic, failing to achieve the "you-are-there" dynamics that videophiles have a right to expect. Fortunately, the concert itself is not compromised; the recording is crisp and carefully mixed. Crow no doubt had more lively gigs during this particular tour, but with an accommodating stage and a first-rate band in good spirits, this was a pretty good night to have the cameras around. --Jeff Shannon

I very much enjoyed this DVD. I was apprehensive after reading some of the other reviews. I listened to both the DD 5.1 and the DTS audio (both of which are included on this disk) and I will admit the DD 5.1 sounded a little thin compared to the DTS. The DTS sounded excellent, however. Other reviews try and compare this to the Eagles Hell Freezes Over DVD, I don't think that is a reasonable comparison. The Eagles uses a much more aggressive 5.1 mix while this show uses a more conservative mix. The DTS sound on this disk is deep and rich and uses the front 3 channels quite well; the rear channels are used primarily for reverb effect. The DD 5.1 did sound a little thin and lacked the bass response of the DTS.
Overall, if you like Sheryl Crow you should get this disk. If you are looking for a special effects laden aggressive mix that has the guitar coming out of the rear left channel and the backing singers out of the rear right channel while the vocals whip across the front three channels this is not for you.

As a huge Sheryl Crow fan, I bought this DVD on release day. I really enjoyed the disc - the concert was excellent. Sheryl rocked (as always), and the video shots and camera angles were very well done (there are some nice shots of people in the crowd up front singing along with Sheryl). My only disappointment was with the DTS audio track. While it sounded good, it just didn't seem to take full advantage of DTS. I may be spoiled by other DTS DVD concert titles I have (most notably, Hell Freezes Over by the Eagles - an incredible example of DTS surround sound), but the sound stage on this DTS DVD seemed a bit flat to me. That was the only reason I gave this DVD 4 stars instead of five. Still, all in all, an excellent DVD that I am very glad I purchased.

While I am a big Sheryl Crow fan, I was disappointed in the absence of extras that make DVD so enjoyable. Though I am not as much of a fan of Sarah McClachlan, the producers of "Rockin' the Globe" could take a lesson from the "Mirrorball" folks, who absolutely packed that DVD to the gills. If you're simply a fan of Crow's music, this will certainly satisfy. If you're looking for a little more bang for your DVD buck then you're sure to be disappointed.

Sheryl Crow and her band are presented in fine form on this DVD. The band is not just backing her up, they are solidly playing WITH her. They are obviously very well rehearsed with tight playing all around. Sheryl's voice is top notch, and the drummer's subtle background vocals are right on. The video is presented without the all-too-often "special effects" some live concert films just can't stay away from. The camera work is very good, the picture is clear and sharp, and it appears (to me) that there are no over-dubs or voice-overs. The audio track (DTS) is accurate, and you sound like you're there, especially when played very loud. The only minor bummer is the occasional audience shot. They're all suffering from jet-lag or something. Perhaps they weren't selling alcohol at the show. I find myself playing this disc over and over, and this is a great disc to show off your system. Even if your just a marginal fan of Sheryl Crow, this show will win you over.

If anyone has seen THE GLOBE SESSIONS tour, this is a carbon copy of it. The song sellections are the same as the concerts I saw in Chicago and it is GREAT to have this available on DVD.
This is a concert from Detroit and Sheryl just simply knows how to give a great performance. Video image is top notch along with the audio quality. The version of AM I GETTING THROUGH is simply ELECTRIFYING ! A MUST have for dedicated fans of Ms Crow.

The song content of this dvd is awesome. Every track is a good one. Sheryl Crow has to be one of the best female song writers and performers ever. A multi-talented musician also. In this concert she goes from playing acoustic guitar to bass guitar to harmonica to electric guitar and finally to piano. Amazing! The only complaint I have is about the recording itself. I had to adjust the volume on my reciever every other song. Sometimes the bass was so loud you could barely hear the other instraments, other times you could barely understand the vocals. I expected more from a DTS recording(ex. Eagles: hell freezes over) but overall a must have!

I am as much a fan of DTS as I am of Sheryl Crow so I expected awesome sound and performance. I got the performance; as for the sound this disk did NOT deliver. The sound stage was flat as a board and not very well defined. I guess the excellent Eagle's Hell Freezes Over DVD has set the bar!

I love Sheryl Crow! Got this from the library Feb 4, 2015. Liked it so much I had to buy my own copy. Watching this DVD makes me smile with enjoyment. Sheryl and her band seem like they're having a good time. I always liked Sheryl's music but not enough to buy it. I've watched this 99 Auburn Hills concert 13 or 14 times and I've fallen in love with Sheryl. Not only is the music and performance terrific, but Sheryl allows her emotions to show. Maybe it's an illusion but I feel she's genuine. Someone, who if we met in person, I could relate to. I just bought the "Wildflower" dvd and C'mon America is on it's way. I'm sorry I missed the boat for so many years, but I'm making up for it now. Sheryl Crow is a lovely human and a huge talent. There's a great string section on this DVD, I particularly love Lorenza Ponce, but it's really all about Sheryl.

"Rockin the Globe" is a gem.
