Started out a bit slot but once the lights went off, the stage show and lighting took off. I enjoyed seeing Tina's singing twist on other popular artist songs. A must see for Tina fans!

Simply the Best

"Well, Tina has done it for one last time! I sadly missed the actual concert tour, but I have the almost perfect VHS to make up for it. This concert took place in such a huge stadium, that it was amazing how Tina's voice overpowered the audience and the band.This is the list of songs she did on the tape.I want to take you higher, Absolutely nothing's changed, Fool in love, Acid queen, River deep Mountain high, We don't need another hero, Better be good to me, Private dancer, Let's stay together, What's love got to do with it, Help, Whatever you need, Try a little tenderness, I heard it through the grapevine, Addicted to love, Simply the best, Proud mary and Nutbush city limitsThe sound and picture are as clear as if you were there in person. Tina and her band performed some songs faster than in the studio versions. These songs were Simply the best, Better be good to me and Nutbush. I liked the audience's approval and Tina's enthusiasm while ruling the stage for one last time. There wasn't a boring song in the programme.Unfortunately, the DVD version has Xtra songs. The songs were edited from the VHS for no apparent reason. The editing is perfect though, because between songs, we don't wait long. Tina comes out for almost every song without a break! It shows Tina saved her best for last, and that she was a ball of pure energy on that stage.The VHS is formatted for widescreen, just to let you know. A truly fantastic live concert and a memorable experience for any Tina Turner fan. I think this is the actual show that PBS took for their tv version a few months back, but nothing compared to this! After 4 decades of success, Tina Turner deserves to be titled "Simply the best"! A must have for everyone. Get it while it's hot. This review refers to the (VHS EDITION) Did this review help you?"

"This concert was filmed in July of 2000 as part of the #1 2000 tour and the 5th highest grossing tour of all time. The Twenty Four Seven Tour. Songs include I Wanna Take You Higher, Absolutly Nothings Changed, Fool In Love, Acid Queen, River Deep Mountain High, We Dont Need Another Hero, Better Be Good, Private Dancer, Lets Stay Together, Whats Love Got To Do With It, When the Heartache is Over, Baby Im a Star, Help, Whatever You Need, Sittin On the Dock Of the Bay, Try a Little Tenderness, I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Addicted To Love, The Best, Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, and finishes with Twenty Four Seven. Tina belts out all these hits in a full 2 hour show with the help of her 9 piece band, 3 dancers, two back of sings, an unbeliveable stage that splits apart, explosions, sparks, a lifting chariot, 6 costume changes, and a 100 foot arm that sweeps over the crowd. Absolutly amazing. Its also the only concert of Tinas where her sense of humor shines through. The DVD version also includes a 20 minute documentary about the tour with backstage interviews and fan statements."

"This video was filmed from a stop on Tina's highly succesful "Twenty Four Seven 2000 TOUR". This tour was so succesful that it was the #1 tour of 2000 not only in America but in the World...and ranks as the #5 tour of all time.With that being said you know this show must be fantastic. I had the privilage of seeing her live during this tour at Madison Sqaure Garden in NYC, and to say the very least she blew the roof off!! This video however was not filmed in NYC but in London, England at the famed Wembley stadium. Tina delivers some of her biggest hits..and classic covers...a must have dvd for all music lovers.set list is as follows."I WANNA TAKE YOU HIGHER" "ABSOLUTELY NOTHINGS CHANGED" "A FOOL IN LOVE" "ACID QUEEN" "RIVER DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH" "WE DONT NEED ANOTHER HERO" "BETTER BE GOOD TO ME" "PRIVATE DANCER" "LETS STAY TOGETHER" "WHATS LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT""WHEN THE HEARTACHE IS OVER" "BABY IM A STAR" "HELP" "WHATEVER YOU NEED" "SITTIN ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY" "TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS" "I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE" "ADDICTED TO LOVE" "SIMPLY THE BEST" "PROUD MARY" "NUTBUSH CITY LIMITS" "TWENTY FOUR SEVEN""
A Great Tina Keepsake!

"I caught Tina's 24-7 tour twice and doubted that any video could adequately capture the excitement and raw energy of her amazing live performance. I was wrong. Filmed during her Wembley Stadium show in summer 2000, this concert shows Tina ending her touring career with a bang.Backed by her top-notch band, exquisite dancers and backup singers, Tina gives 100% of herself to every song and the audience loves her for it. The set list contains songs from throughout Tina's career, from A Fool in Love and Proud Mary (of course!) right up to Whatever You Need from her latest album -- a great musical tour of her 40-year career.This DVD features excellent sound and very good video quality, plus a special behind-the-scenes look at life on the road during the tour. If you want to watch a true legend go out on top, this is the DVD for you."
The DVD is a big improvement over the awful video release.

"I caught Tina Turner's final tour twice (in Houston). The concert was spectacular. I bought the video as soon as it was released to relive the excitment of Turner, the band, the backup singers, the dancers, and the fireworks special effects. The video was filmed in London. I believe it was supposed to be the last performance on the tour. On the video you get to see the faces of about a dozen audience members standing near the front of the stage. The camera editing includes these audience members in adoring close ups seemingly every 15 seconds. I don't know about you, but I'd rather watch what's happening on stage. No stars for the video.
I recently rented this DVD to see if any changes had been made in the editing. YES! They reduced the adoring fan close ups to a minimum and keep the camera's focused on the stage.
My biggest complaint is the editing of the "Nutbush" finale. At the live concert, you think you've seen it all after the "Proud Mary" number that includes some impressive surprise fireworks. Then the stage goes black and silent for a few seconds only to burst out in blinding lights with a rousing encore of Tina belting out "Nutbush." Had you actually been at the concert you would have experienced the spectacle of the entire stage front transforming into a huge narrow crane that had been hidden for the entire concert. Tina struts up the arm of the crane as it lifts her WAY OUT over the audience. The DVD and the tape have cut this event into so many shots that its not clear where the crane came from and how Tina appeared in it.
The DVD is no substitue for the real thing but it brought back some memories of the best concert I've attended."
