'The Bete Noir Tour', is a stunning collection of beautifully filmed performances from a number of venues during the 'Bête Noire' European Tour of 1988 and 1989

This classic Bryan Ferry live concert film has now been remixed into 5.1 surround sound for it’s long awaited debut on DVD. New Town is a stunning live record of an artist at the height of his powers.

Also included on the package is the previously unavailable ‘Konixxtreffen 2002’ Concert. This sees Ferry showcase many of his classic solo and Roxy Music hits.

This is a double pack dvd release

Disc one features the 1988 / 1989 New Town tour and is finally available on dvd - not before time !

The concert effectively showcases many tracks from two Ferry solo albums - Boys and Girls and Bete Noire, as the former had not been promoted on tour before, as well as an imaginative selection from the Roxy Music back catalogue (The Bogus Man, for instance).

Bryan's band comprises a mixture of old hands such as Neil Hubbard and Andy Newmark and new faces. This combination makes for a great performance, I only wish that I was old enough at the time to go and see this tour live !

Newer material such as New Town and Don't Stop The Dance blends well with oldies such as Ladytron and In Every Dream Home A Heartache.

It is well worth getting just for a stupendous version (surely the best live version) of Avalon, with original vocalist Yannick Etienne exhibiting her fantastic voice.

The set is well paced and chroreographed throughout and the encore of Kiss and Tell, a speeded up and sassy version of Love is The Drug, Avalon and Do the Strand is a fitting end.

Disc 2 is a one off concert to celebrate 25 years of Virgin Germany in 2002 and is at the time of the Frantic tour but with only two songs from the cd.

The dvd commences with The Thrill of It All and the concert features an equal mix of Ferry and Roxy classics. I attended the Manchester leg of the Frantic tour and am sure this second concert will be just as good, if the Manchester concert is anything to go by

Overall then, 4 stars rating - excellent value for money and disc 1 remixed in digital sound for the 1st time, so well worth a purchase

This is a superb value dvd with two excellent Ferry concerts on the one disc.
The first concert is from the Bete Noire tour of 1988/89 featuring some roxy/ferry classics (Ladytron,In Every Dream Home etc.)as well a several tracks from the then recent Boys and Girls & Bete Noire albums.The one let down is the dreadful histrionics of the lead guitarist who's appalling hairstyle makes him look like a reject from some horrible heavy metal band!

The second gig is from the Frantic tour of 2002 with an excellent band (Chris Spedding,Mick Green,Paul Thompson etc.) celebrating 25 years of Virgin Germany.It is another stunning show though the Munich crowd is strangely unresponsive(at one point Bryan says"lets hear it for Virgin Germany" too little affect!)I attended the Glasgow show of the tour where a similar set went down a storm!This is a must have for any fan at a bargain price!

I agree and disagree with some comments made elsewhere. I am glad that BF's voice is quite forward as I have seen too many of his performances where he mumbles inaudibly which is incredibly annoying. I know that he is very popular with the ladies but he is a singer so I found this a distinct improvement. I do agree that the picture quality from the '88/'89 German gig is not great but Girls and Boys and Bete Noir are my two fav. Ferry albums so it was brill. to see it released and overall I am delighted with this DVD and would recommend it. The backing singers on Disc 1 are superb. I want to watch this again - if I can prize it away from my girlfriend!

This is a disc of 2 halves. The New Town section is excellent. the mix is amazing, picture quality is a bit grainy but that adds to the feel of the gigs. The 2002 gig is a different bucket of monkeys. The picture quality is stunning. Almost HD quality. The sound is a different matter....a very poor mix indeed. Ferry's vocals are too far forward in the mix. Hardly any bass to speak of and Mick Green's guitar is too loud into the bargain! I've not been this disappointed in a DVD since Pink Floyd's 'Pulse'! Virgin mess up again!

Another favourite in my collection of live concert DVDs. An odd pairing of concerts - very different but even considering the second gig an intriguing extra, the New Town (first) concert is worth 5 stars all by itself.

The ambience of the Bête Noir Tour (assembled from various 1988/89 gigs) is hard to forget, it's like watching a rock band in a steamy jungle nightclub. The back-up singers, in their feathered headgear, epitomize exotic allure and a pet leopard slinking on stage would not be out of place. Bryan Ferry, in great form, is backed by a superb group of musicians and their easy rapport and electric energy on stage are contagious. The artful, smoky and purposefully grainy photography complements the sultry vibe and the musical choices showcase a strong Ferry solo setlist, mostly from the "Bête Noir" and "Boys and Girls" albums, but there are some excellent Roxy numbers as well. Limbo, Ladytron, The Bogus Man, While My Heart Is Still Beating, Windswept, New Town, a fab version of Avalon ... with some inspired extended instrumental passages.

The second concert, a 2002 open-air event, took place in Konixxtreffen in front of a subdued German audience, who appear to have been told not to make too much noise, and only seem to wake up for the last four numbers. As far as the recording goes, the audio mix is disappointing, with very little bass and most instruments too low to have any bite, and Bryan, ever the consummate professional, sweating his heart out nonetheless, although the effort is visible. Also missing is the usual contingent of back-up vocalists, with only Sarah Brown in front of a pretty quiet mic and, although the "new" band is as good as ever, that magic spark does not fully ignite. On the plus side, the video quality is excellent, the music selections are a very interesting mix of Ferry and Roxy, and Lucy Wilkins is on stage.
