Very Good Concert!
25 January 2010
Excerpt: I have been a George Michael fan since I was 14 yrs old and I have seen him 3 times in concert. This BD looked very good on my Kuro with the awesome blacks throughout the show and my sub got one hell of a work out during the fast paced tunes. I was however dissapointed with GM's set list, Where was "I want your sex", "Praying for time", "Monkey"? and many more good tunes from past.
Excerpt: Video is great, audio is good, albeit bass-heavy, but the disc itself is a waste. While I am not a George Michael purist, I do enjoy his music. However, since when did he go from a musician to a performer? Sure, he can change into a police uniform for his performance of 'Outside' (where he was caught performing lewd acts in an outdoor bathroom), but not jeans and a leather jacket for 'Faith'? Or even play a guitar for 'Faith'?
Excerpt: It is a pitty that they used not enough lightness, what is essential for Blu-Ray. Often George is in a sort of shade caused by the lightness behind him. Also close-ups of George face are missing. Maybe on his request? As Stereo listener satisfied.
Excerpt: bought George Michael Live in London and received it yesterday, did a quick run on it as well with my initial impressions being - exceptional video quality. definitely one helluva choice for eye candy. comparative to Celine Dions Live in Las Vegas, without celine. - audio could be better, but could be worse too, considering the disc was front heavy, with little to no surround activity.
Conclusion: I echo the previous review - I also went to see George on many occasions and had the time of my life, each time! This is bound to delight any George fan, he put on a great show and each time it was slightly different. I'd recommend to those of you new to George Michael. Infact i'd recommend to everyone! Buy with confidence!
Conclusion: Love him or hate him, George is one of the world's most talented singer/songwriters and this performance at Earls Court was the best of a 3 year long World Tour. Trust me I know, I saw him 31 times and that wasn't enough!!
Conclusion: I went to see George Michael at Wembley Stadium and I have to say that the show was out of this world. He has to have the best voice for when it comes to singing live. The stage, backing singers, lighting... everything was just brilliant. The print and sound on the Blu ray is unbelievable. It really is. Even if you're not a George Michael fan, you'd still appriciate it. The extra documentary is a real good bonus. I don't think you need anything else on this disc.
Conclusion: Sadly we were very disappointed with this show. The quality of Blu Ray was excellent and would get 5 stars but, the show was too much. Normally I like lighting but this was OTT and ruined the concert for all of us. Yes we know George is gay but his continuous reference to it both during the concert and on the extra's was just too much and made us all feel that he was trying to prove it. Who to? the watcher or himself.
