"Once you have seen Beyonce' Knowles live in concert, you will have a new respect for her. I had the pleasure of attending "The Beyonce' Experience" when it came to Washington, DC, and since then, I have adored her even more. When Destiny's Child released their first single, "No, No, No", it was crystal clear that Beyonce' was not only the star of the group, but also the hardest working one and the one with the most potential. With this concert on DVD, she proves my stated point. Throughout the duration of the show, Beyonce' didn't miss a beat, nor did she forget a lyric, nor did I see much sweat! She made it look so easy, and that impressed me a great deal.
When she first steps onto the stage, she asks the crowd if they are ready to be entertained. She, without a doubt, entertains for each minute of the two hours that she is performing! It's not easy to keep 20,000 people entertained for two hours, but somehow Beyonce' manages to accomplish this task.
Beyonce' performs all of her biggest hits and also gives us many doses of Destiny's Child's music. "Get Me Bodied" stands out in my mind as one of the best performances because there was non-stop choreography, very creative outfits (she had on black and yellow, hence, her nickname is Bee), and it was simply an energetic performance. "Crazy in Love", "Me, Myself and I", and "Speechless" are other highlights. I loved the simplicity of the "Flaws and All" performance. She sounded great, but she incorporated so many emotions with just one song, and it was very touching to watch (how can she make herself cry on cue, on stage??) "Irreplaceable" is another highlight. Not because she did anything fancy or gaudy, because she didn't, but I love the crowd participation she included, and I liked how she pointed random individuals out from the audience (I.E., she said, "I see you over there with that Beyonce' poster!")
In all honesty, I could go on and on boasting about this DVD, but to really bring into fruition what I am saying, you will have to see it. This concert is recommended by me, no questions. "Are you ready to be entertained?"
Actually, get ready to be entertained.

"I'm as big of a Beyonce fan as they come, but I can admit when the girl messes up (like her previous live DVD, "Live At Wembley" [I found it tacky, unorganized, etc.]). However, she definitely does NOT mess up with The Beyonce Experience. She sings amazingly, she's got a complete live band (unusual for R&B performers) and a wide array of set and costume changes. Highlights for me include: "Crazy In Love" (Crazy Mix), "Freakum Dress," "Beautiful Liar," "Get Me Bodied" and "Irreplaceable." Enjoy the show!"

"I love this tour. I wanted to see it when she came to Chicago, but the ticket price was outrageous! Beyonce entertained her fans through her songs, energy, dancers, and her all female band! Here is the setlist:
1. Intro Fanfare - The band plays a sample of Strawberry Letter 23 as B makes her way to the stage.
2. Crazy In Love/Crazy - she performs her first single as a solo artist and mixes it with Gnarls Barkley's version of Crazy which was pretty cool. I also like how she rips the long skirt from her costume, making it a short skirt :)
3. Freakum Dress - very sexy performance. This version is more like a rocked-out version. Loved it!!!
4. Green Light/Band Jam - I liked it. One of my favorites from the B'Day album.
5. Baby Boy/Murder He Wrote - Awesome, but this performance is more for the ladies than the men.
6. Beautiful Liar - good, but it needed Shakira.
7. Naughty Girl - sexy performance. Love the soul clapping.
8. Me, Myself, And I - liked it, but I like the Wembley Arena DVD performance better.
9. Piano Break/Dangerously In Love/He Loves Me - one of my favorite peformances from the DVD. It's very elegant and I love how she mixes Jill Scott's He Loves Me in the song.
10. Flaws and All - pretty good. Towards the end, B sheds some tears while embracing an angel.
11. Cops & Robbers Intro/Destiny's Child Medley (Independent Women Pt 1, Bootylicious, No No No Pt 2, Bug A Boo [Screwed & Chopped Mix], Bills Bills Bills, Cater 2 U, Say My Name, Jumpin Jumpin, Soldier [Soulja Boy Crank Mix], Survivor w. Kelly and Michelle) - loved it. My favorites were Bills Bills Bills and Say My Name. I like how she did the Souja Boy Dance with her dancers.
12. Speechless - I think she could've left this number out.
13. Jailhouse Confessions/Ring The Alarm - HOT! The intro is HOT!!! This is the song where she fell on the flight of stairs at the Orlando show. She didn't fall off of this performance which was good.
14. Suga Mama - pretty hot! I've learned to like this song and I love the performance
15. Upgrade U (feat Jay-Z) - not my favorite song by her, but Jay-Z made a special performance with B.
16. 03 Bonnie & Clyde/Prince Mix - okay, not my favorite.
17. Check On It (Special Tour Version) - LOVED IT!! It cracked me up and it was sexy at the same time.
18. Deja Vu - that's my song and Beyonce's! Wished she sang the second verse, but the performance was great!
19. Bass Jam/Bee Intro/Get Me Bodied (Extended Mix) - She bought it home!! My favorite song and performance from B!
20. Welcome To Hollywood - it's just the song and never before seen footage of Beyonce. Pretty good to watch as B makes her costume change.
21. Dreamgirls - Very interesting! I wish she would've performed the whole song.
22. Listen - Awesome!!
23. Irreplaceable/B'Day Surprise - To the left! To the left! Great song to close the show as well as B's birthday surprise.
Overall, it was a great show. I could watch it a million times and still love it"

"I was at the Lake Tahoe show just two weeks before this DVD was filmed and I must say BEYONCE is one of the Greatest entertainers AND she IS hands down the most BEAUTIFUL WOMAN in the entire world. The Lake Tahoe show was GREAT and usually I can't swallow LIVE DVD's in just ONE sitting, but THIS ONE...I could, in fact THIS IS the perfect souviner if you went to one of her shows this past summer. Whatever I did miss when I saw her live due to TALL people in the way obstructing my view, I was finally able to see it on this. I give this 5 stars, the energy, the performance is GREAT and I recommend this to ALL, the ONLY thing that would have made it better was if Kelly and Michelle would have been out there for the Destiny's Child medley, rather than just at the end of SURVIVOR, I STILL hope that they RE-UNITE one day in the future. My favorite Highlights of the DVD for me is when she does BEAUTIFUL LIAR...which I personally thought was GREAT (But NOT long enough)and the closing number "IRREPLACEABLE" with the crowd singing the entire first verse, I got a case of goosebumps when we did that in Tahoe, it was the same feeling watching it happen on DVD...GET THIS!!!! It's GREAT!!!!"
