"What was that? Can you believe I am writing this review after just seeing the first half of this DVD? I dont even want to go back to it. What happened? I have always been the Boy's biggest fan, which is why I was thrilled to get this in the mail from Amazon. I was sooo not pleased. This is absolutely HORRENDOUS! George sounds like he's completely drugged out and none of the songs even sound like they should. I guess you can say that he's the first artist in history who murdered his own music. Terrible, awful, and completely disposable! I'm sorry, but I can't believe this was even released to the buying public. DON'T waste your time and money. A much better option would be their newly-released Greatest Hits DVD with all the videos, including great extras like a ten-minute interview with the band, and their "A Kiss Across The Ocean" concert in December' 83, which is even better than the videos and makes the price sooo worth it! This so-called 20th anniversary concert is a terrible black mark against the Boy (not the band because they are still great here), and I'm hoping such an atrocity by a well-loved, legendary 80's performer like him, never happens again."

"I was an obsessed Culture Club fan through high school. I first saw them play in San Francisco in the early 80's when they first came to America. I think my ticket cost $12.00. So when I say I'm a Culture Club fan, it goes back a few years. I'm 40 now and still follow what Boy George is up to, so when I saw this DVD for sale, I was excited and had to see it. But I have to say, I was so disappointed and thought Boy George's performance was below average. He barely moved when he was performing. I wasn't expecting him to be jumping around like he did when he was 20-something, but he's just a big lump on stage and the hideous tank of a dress he's wearing DOES NOT help matters. And then he gets all pissy with some guy in the audience and he yells something foul to him and honestly watching/listening to George bicker with the audience is just boring, and sort of sad, really. It was pretty obvious that George didn't really want to be there. I think yelling at fans who have paid money to see you is pathetic (for any band) - but you'd just think George would be grateful that 20+ years later fans are still paying money to see him. They bring out that guy who played him in Taboo and watching him pretend to be Boy George back in the day was so annoying - I couldn't wait for that to be over. There is a lengthy interview of George included in the DVD which is good, if you can get past the look he's sporting. But it's like he's standing in some hallway being interviewed and it just looked like an afterthought. Jon Moss is also interviewed. It could have been way better. They never bother to interview Roy or Mikey. To label something as a 20th anniversary - at least put some effort into it. This DVD had a cheap quality to it and looked like it was thrown together. There was nothing special about it at all and some parts were just downright painful to watch. I watched this once and haven't had any desire to watch it again."
Boy George...memories are made of this....
