Product Description

When Beyoncé took to the stage for four electrifying nights at the famed Roseland Ballroom, only 3,500 lucky fans per night, who bought those tickets in a record 22 seconds, were able to catch the intimate shows in the historic New York venue where she managed to turn a club into a coliseum.
4 Intimate Nights With Beyoncé at Roseland Ballroom, was a tour de force for the entertainer. It was the only time she would perform her new album, 4, almost completely and to a very limited audience. Backed by her all-female band, with an additional string section, the performances were punctuated with spirited stories detailing her journey before the album, 4, including her years before and with Destiny’s Child.
Live At Roseland: The Elements Of 4 deluxe package is a two-disc DVD, with the complete concert, bonus offstage footage, a 20-page booklet and a video anthology that includes seven videos from her latest album, 4. The concert documentary is filled with never-before seen footage that captures Beyoncé’s life from eager five-year-old music fan to a consummate entertainer who is in control of every inch of her life and career. Live At Roseland was directed by Beyoncé, Ed Burke and Anthony Green and executive produced by Beyoncé for Parkwood Entertainment, in association with Columbia Records.

Product Description

contiene il concerto completo registrato da beyonce' nell'agosto 2011 quando ha tenuto 4 fantastici shows sold-out (tutti i biglietti sono andati esauriti in soli 22 secondi !) alla leggendaria roseland ballroom di new york. live at roseland comprende le versioni dal vivo di molti suoi successi da solista e con le destiny's child e tutte le canzoni presenti nell'album '4'. accompagnata dalla sua solida e collaudatissima band composta da sole donne, da una sezione completa d'archi e dalle fidatissime coriste the mama's, in questo 'live at roseland' beyonce' offre, ancora una volta, una performance stellare che dimostra, semmai ce ne fosse ancora bisogno, che siamo al cospetto di una superstar mondiale.

Format:DVD
Firstly, if you're a new fan of Beyonce' and are looking for a live concert dvd where she performs her greatest hits and has all the slick choreography and spectacular stage setups, then skip past this DVD. Instead try either the 2007 "Beyonce' Experience" DVD or the "I Am... World Tour 2010" DVD.
This DVD isn't a greatest hits concert, but a much more intimate performance devoted almost entirely to her latest album "4".

The first half of the program is a retrospective of Beyonce's career up to 2011, and kicks off with a fast-paced medley of her biggest hits with band "Destiny's Child", which is playful and energetic but is nothing new to fans of Beyonce' (she's performed this medley in it's entirety in the 2009 DVD I Am... An Intimate Performance). She then performs a jazzed up version of her signature song "Crazy in Love" which is, as always, excellent - and then segways onto a crafted rework of the "Dreamgirls" movie title song, in which she starred in 2006. The songs "Irreplacable" and "Single Ladies" close this first part, and are both brilliant but again, nothing we haven't seen before in her other live concert DVDS.

The second half of the program is where the new material is brought to the front, and the concert is literally a live performance of the album almost in it's entire form. The only problem here is that the "4" album was Beyonce's attempt at a more mature, personal album. This succeeded in audio format, but as a live concert the high number of ballads means it does become a bit lackluster, especially when compared to the previous concert DVDs. The majority of the songs are Beyonce' stood on the stage singing (very well) but with not much movement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect... 2 Dec 2011
By Amanda TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'll get the basics out of the way now; this is a short concert, as all of the pre-4 songs are shortened [the Destiny's Child era tracks get the most severe cuts - the backing singers and audience do the majority of the singing]. As the concert is short, there are no costume changes and no fancy stage setups, and although there is dancing, there wasn't much space to perform and Beyonce was already pregnant, so there is less then is usual at a Beyonce concert.

It wasn't a problem for me, but some people may not like, is that various footage of Beyonce is inserted throughout the songs. Again, this wasn't an issue for me, but if you want to simply sit back and watch Beyonce sing, this isn't the best DVD to get.

***

This Beyonce performing live, so yeah, I'll call this a must own, but I'll admit that I had a few niggles, so it isn't perfect for me:

The run of concerts at Roseland was to celebrate the 4 album, so it was disappointing to find that Beyonce only sings four non-singles from the 4 album; I Care, I Miss You, Rather Die Young and I Was Here [End Of Time is going to be a single]. I love I Care and I Miss You, but would have adored to see her perform Start Over live.

I do really like the single Party, but it doesn't have the same spark to it without the Andre 3000/J Cole rap in it.

As I already mentioned, this is a short concert and the earlier songs all get shortened considerably.

***

Now for the highlights;

I never really liked 1 + 1 and I Was Here before now, but her live performances have sold me.

I Care and I Miss You are two of my favourite songs on the 4 album and her vocals on the live versions are out of this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative Elements 15 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
The dvd of Beyonce: Live At Roseland Elements of 4 shows a concert full of engaging performances. In addition both dvds have bonus performances. Beyonce projects forth intense energy for the selected musical tracks. She starts the event out with cleverly weaving the origins of her musical career into the various songs. My two favorite parts of this concert were tied into the renditions of "Crazy In Love" and "Love On Top". The scene that also pulled at my heartstrings was where she was shown hugging a young fan during "Irreplaceable". He is one of her biggest fans and appeared to be younger than 13. Things became even more sentimental and touching when Beyonce gently suggested that he sing "Irreplaceable". I have to say that this scene made me like her even more because it was obvious that he (the young fan) felt uplifted by her encouragement. What also makes the purchase worth it is that the second dvd contains six great music videos. It is a tie between the music videos that I enjoyed the most: "Love On Top" and "Dance For You." Beyonce: Live At Roseland: Elements of 4 is best for anyone that enjoyed any of her music videos and/or songs from the "4" collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Beyoncé 2 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
This is an absolute must-have for any Beyoncé fan. I can't believe she was pregnant when she did these shows because she was still giving it her all. The second disc is great because it has all the music videos form 4 and also the 'Behind The Videos'. I LOVE it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect.
It's Beyoncè. To give another rating than 5* would be blasphemous. She's perfect, this DVD is perfect. The bible in video format.

I had to sit through this over Xmas - a gift for my daughter.

it's not so much the songs - although I do think Beyonce is hugely over-rated and an average singer. Read more
