"Robbie Williams latest DVD, "What we did last summer", was recorded at Knebworth Park, where Robbie performed in front of 375,000 people, in three days. The show is outstanding and even if you do not like Robbie, you will surely enjoy this DVD.From the opening act, in which Robbie appears like on the cover of his album "Escapology" until the last song, "Angels", followed by the crowd, Robbie leads the audience throughout his songs. In this DVD, you get some songs which were cut from "Live summer" CD, such as "Supreme". Robbie was really happy during the performance and talked to his fans between the songs, saying that was the better crowd he ever performed for.The DVD comes with a second disc, with bonus material: an UNICEF movie against children exploration, narrated by Robbie, two fan diaries, showing his fans arriving and camping at Knebworth and other materials about the singer. There's also a game you can play using the remote control of the DVD which gives you access to a special area, with some Robbie takes and a performance of "Back for good", with his old pal from Take That, Mark Owen. Very cool.If you like to experience the energy of a crowd in a live concert, buy this DVD. This DVD makes you find out why Robbie Williams is the most popular singer in UK nowadays!"

"This was originally televised on UK TV, and full of adverts. So I was happy to receive the DVD, and watch it all over again, with no adverts. Although I wasn't so happy when I discovered a good chunk of the DVD wasn't the performances that were originally screened on TV - it was better!This was filmed at Knebworth, over 3 days, in the summer, with Robbie playing to 375,000 fans, which averages at 125,000 fans a night. (If they managed to get there on the night, which a few of them didn't, due to the large volume in traffic!) So the TV performance and the DVD had performances taken from all three nights. I was surprised not to be able to find a certificate for this on the DVD, as the TV performance didn't show half of what this did! Robbie swears, he gets one very lucky lady up on stage who he gropes and kisses - I bet all the women watching this, including me, wanted to be in her shoes. Oh, and two girls decide to flash him, and get on camera cos Robbie notices. Of course he's going to notice, they were in the front row. I bet they regret that now. You've got all of Robbie's hits on this DVD - although not going back quite as far as some of his very early solo stuff, when he was still known as the fat dancer from Take That. And he's live, proving he can cut it live, in front of a big audience.There are some great highlights from this concert - Robbie getting overly emotional at all the love the fans are giving him, and performing a `punk' version of Back For Good (Take That) with Mark Owen. If you loved this performance, its in the extras, not included in the actual concert footage. Why they hid it in the extras I'll never know. It's stupid. I did quite often get distracted by Robbie's ever-growing collection of tattoos during the concert - Ozzy Osbourne anyone? But this is a great DVD to keep and reminisce if you were at the concert (I wasn't), or spot yourself if you were. And dance and sing along to all the hits. This was a tremendous concert and shows just what superb entertainer Robbie Williams is. A brilliant DVD for anyone young & old."
AMAZING AND I'M NOT EVEN A DIE-HARD FAN !!

"I was standing in Virgin Megastore and they were playing this DVD on the big screens. It seriously sent shivers down my spine listening to it and watching it. I'm not even a huge fan although I dont mind him ,, just never bought any of his stuff before. I watched this last night and WOW WOW WOW .... if you only buy ONE DVD this year, this has to be it."

"I took a chance and bought the English version on a recent trip to London after hearing how popular he is in the UK - how often are the Brits wrong? All I can say is if you don't buy this DVD you are missing out on one of the best live concerts you will ever see in your life - and I was not familar with any of his songs - the lyrics (remember lyrics?) mostly about love and breakup written in tongue in cheek - everythng was flawless from Robbie's over the top stage presence - his interaction with the crowd - the lighting - the sets - the backup dancers - the band - the visuals - the 100,000 plus crowd was under his spell - he starts off by saying - "I'm Robbie Williams - for the next 2 hours your ass is mine!" If you can not play this DVD loud, then take it to a friend's house where you can crank up the volume - better yet if they have a plasma or HDTV!
I know others have asked - why is he not not big in the states? - maybe some day he might be - but for now, go discover him for yourself and spread the word - I'm lining up for tickets when he performs over here.
p.s. pick up his Live at the Albert - a different take on Robbie singing classic crooner (Sinatra)songs - which shows his versatility (Harry Connick Jr - please step aside) - this guy can do it all............."
