"i, like many others, knew and loved the sydney DVD first. that show is incredibly upbeat throughout, w/ kylie clearly having a blast and everything is very extrovert. the goal for this concert was to match the fever album, and have a more "cool" and technological aesthetic. the result is less "fun" and less immediately catchy than the sydney show, but after i got used to the concept i found that i loved this concert just as much. although i think it's too bad kylie does less dancing (she's a great dancer!), it does a good job of giving a more sophisticated feel.
the show is divided into seven distinct sections. the first has kylie w/ a team of "cyborgs", and the opener, "come into my world", is just fantastic. the 2nd is based on a clockwork orange, then comes a medley of ballads (w/ kylie in a gorgeous black dress), then a more urban section, then a sexy section (w/ an absolutely great reworking of locomotion), then a clubby section (w/ "limbo" and a great, great, great new version of "lucky"). the encore section includes a sort of native american/tribal kylie on a platform covered by a huge dress, and then ends w/ kylie solo doing "can't get blue monday out of my head". kylie's vocals are strong and her live performance is always engaging; her band is first rate; the set, costumes, and camerawork are great; the projections are generally good (esp. the GBI ones which have kylie in a pink japanese-style wig and are just fantastic); and her dancing is less pop-style, but generally fits the music well. also, the setlist is a good mix of recent singles and less familiar tunes, including a lovely version of "the crying game".
this edition is great b/c it includes a lot of bonuses, including a section of the digital projections from the concert for 4 songs, a documentary, an audio CD of most of the highlights from the show (sadly the "lucky" remix isn't here, but it's on the digital projections), a digital version of the tour book, and a photo gallery. all in all this is a great release, and the extras are totally worth it if you're a fan."
Kylie Is Better Than This DVD

"Coming near the end of a two year whirlwind of recording and touring, it is no surprise Kylie does not have much energy left. This DVD shows that. If you own her CDs, there is no need to spend more money on this.
If you want a SHOW, get the DVD 'Live In Sidney(On a Night Like This)'. Kylie has energy in Sydney.
Kylie is a world class performer and singer. This DVD is OK, but does not show her at her best.
