Siouxsie sounded powerful clear and on key during most of the U.S. shows, Ney York & Chicago being the best. ( she even beat up a security guard in Chicago!)
The performance they used for the DVD sounded worse than any of the shows that I saw. Although some shows were better than others
the U.S. leg of the tour was great!
I have also seen a bootleg from the sonic festival in Japan. It is a better show as well!
Siouxsie's hair is a spiky verson of Janets from "Three's Company". She's still the coolest looking woman around and seems to be thrilled to be back on stage. She periodically jokes with the audience and band members. She does start the show off a little stiff and slowly loosens up as time goes by. By the time "Voodoo Dolly" ends Siouxsie has removed her top to reveal a black glittery bra and rolls around the stage like a madwoman. By the end of "Monitor" she's crawling off the stage in sweat soaked exhaustion. Yes, her voice is very hoarse but her cheering fans don't seem to notice or care.
Drummer Budgie nearly steals the spotlight from Sioux on several occasions. His drumming is so intricate and he wears gloves since he hits so hard.
Althought some of these songs are nearly 25 years old they still hold up and sound refreshing to hear again. This is a must see for anybody interested in a trip down memory lane or someone just discovering the band.
Siouxsie looks amazing. She has always had her own, stunning, irrefutable sense of fashion. In this concert, she looks like the old Hollywood glam that the title refers to -- she looks like Marlene Dietrich. Her voice is strong, deep, powerful, but often off-key. This may be because she cannot hear herself? Don't know. But then again, the fact that she goes off-key is what is so awesome about it -- they are PUNKS, after all!!!! And that punk spirit is alive and kicking and wailing when she goes off-key, because it shirks down your spine and makes you feel awful. That's the point.
Highlights: Metal Postcard, Red Light, Lands End, I Could Be Again, Nightshift, Voo-Doo Dolly. These songs, in particular, really stood out. The set list, overall, is very impressive.Read more ›

Baffling is the only word that comes to mind watching this DVD. Budgie and severing hold the low end and that's about the only good thing to say about this performance. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Tuzzster
After watching the Nocturne concert, this one is just painful. The Banshees will always be my favorite band but this release never should have happened. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Scott Davies
I dunno, I wonder if those who are alarmed by Siouxsie's voice and performance are less familiar with the earlier years? Read morePublished on May 6, 2011 by Thomas E. Stazer
Think about it.. This album is unlistenable. What a depressing thing to have to write, as a Banshees fan since Join Hands - and how the mighty have fallen (listen to "Nocturne"). Read morePublished on April 13, 2010 by Moz65

Here we are, 7 years down the road from the break-up of Siouxsie and the banshees. The journey has been filled with both pleasure and pain, a lot like this DVD. Read morePublished on September 14, 2005 by Nelson Rosario
