WOW! you don't just see Tina singing - you see the most spectacular show ever. she promised us a concert never to be forgotton, and she did just that. I was at the concert and when the video was released, memories came flooding back, but bits were cut out. To have the uncut 2 hour concert on DVD is a treat. The DVD version includes about 4 extra songs that were cut from the video, all of Tina's interraction with the audience, including the full interraction during 'Whats love got to do with it'. There is also a behind the scenes look at the concert. She goes through all of her greatest hits with such energy and colour, its hard to believe she was 60 at the time. Songs that stand out - nutbush city limits, better be good to me, simply the best, addicted to love, heard it through the grapevine, 24/7, proud mary. Plus a few suprises on the way. As i said, its not just a concert, its a whole production, lights, colour, fireworks, and full of energy. Tina stays strong from beginning to end. if you want to get a tingle down your back, watch this DVD! it puts all other concerts to shame. Its a DVD you can never get sick of. 5+ stars.

Filmed over 2 days during her Twenty Four Seven Millennium Tour from the famous Wembley Stadium, London.
This DVD/Video captures the true atmosphere of the tour, I was in attendance at wembley during the filming of this DVD/Video so I should know.
It captures Tina's amazing presense on stage and with a mixture of Tina's amazing voice and performance as well as a fantastic state-of-the-art stage, this is one DVD/Video not to be missed.
DVD contains song selection as well as a behing the scenes with Tina documentary which contains an interview with the great lady herself.

I have watched the DVD of Tina's Farewell Tour,"one Last Time" so many times I have just about worn it out.I find it very fitting that she chose Wembley Stadium to film her concert for DVD release since the London fans are the ones who have stuck by her through thick and thin.I also feel it is fitting that she was the last female performer to perform there at the Old Wembley Stadium.Wouldn't it be so nice if she would do a Special concert in the New Wembley Stadium,and I know she would have a SELL OUT!!
I rate this DVD 10 stars,as it shows TINA at her Best,even at age 60,and going out in style.It definately explains why she has sold more concert tickets than any other female artist.I can only guess that Madonna would come in 2nd.
I see some of the fans reviews here are of people who actually attended the shows in London.I am sure it is a very good keepsake of your good time at the show.Did everyone notice that the Goodyear Blimp was there to capture some fabulous overhead shots?I still can't get over how she can perform for so long in stilettos.
I have all of her concerts on DVD and love them all,but love this one the BEST....
Has anyone else noticed that TINA is about the only performer that has released every one of her World Tour concerts on DVD or VHS,even the ones before her major comeback.I hope we get to see TINA rock on even in her 70's.I see where she rocked London earlier this year for a fundraiser and blew the roof off with her stellar performance.

This is one of the Best Tina perfomances. After the incredibly exciting Wildest Dreams Tour, the Queen of Rock returns with this, the 24/7 Millenium Tour. This DVD will give you a ten plus experience of rock and roll. The band plays excellent rock, dancers are fantastic and Tina's the indisputable star of current popular music. Tina's voice is at her best. After watching this concert you'll be longing for Tina to perfom again soon.

Well, I was actually in the audience for this concert, in fact you see me many times during the DVD. I am just near the green alien at the front
I was worried how this DVD would compare to my memory of the concert itself, and I have to say that I am very impressed. I find both the sound and picture quality to be very good, and just how I remember them to have actually been
I like the range of shots, cameras and angles used. It really does show off the famous Wembley stadium, and just how many people were in there. Obviously I was unaware of what was going on behind me, so the mixture of cameras is really interesting.
It is good to see all of the songs included on this version, unlike the VHS, which was a tad disappointing. However, I was a little irritated to find that there were parts cut, even from this version. They have removed the sing along with the audience during 'The Best', which is a shame. Also, some of the costume changes have been sped up a little.
However, it really is hard to find fault with this DVD. Most of the songs that you would want to be there, are. The staging, lighting and setting are all very good. Although the lighting does look a little more gaudy on the DVD than it actually was.
Tina, of course, is amazing. Her voice is strong, consistent and powerful. Her dancing is jaw-dropping, let alone when you think that she was aged 60, and was doing the whole lot in stilettos! Naturally, the legs are awesome, and I got to see them from up close! I have seldom been so dumb-struck as when she ran down the arm of the crane during 'Nutbush', I was directly below her, and could see that she really was very, very high up (and still in high heels!). Her energy never flags, even the quiet songs are sung with full force. She does, however, save the best for last. Proud Mary, with the fireworks and all, is probably the best version that I have ever seen.
I cannot really recommend this DVD highly enough, as a parting shot after 40 years of performing, this is a true triumph. Well done Tina!

WoW, just as the last review! it is like being in the front row even in your living room! the full concert is so exiting to watch, the extra songs when the heartache is over, sittin at the dock of a bay and twenty four seven are pure class, the other parts of the concert that were edited out like the audiance participation in whats love? and the tina talk inbetween songs! and of course the introduction of the band and the jokes...! were excellent i can't understand why they edited these out in the first place? anyway this is a fantastic dvd, the sound is 1st class there are 3 settings to choose from, there is a 30 minuite video of tina flying into london and talking about the concert and new album also a look at her meeting the press and fans! this is great and may i say i dont think i'll ever tire of this amazing DvD............10 STARS

In common with the Rolling Stones, who somehow also just keep on rocking, Tina Turner in this DVD is about as subtle as Mike Tyson., or an Apache gunship.

As most fans will realize, from subsequent performances at various venues and awards ceremonies, this DVD is certainly NOT Tina Turner's last concert. However it is a master class by one of the world's greatest black female singers capable of belting out music from deep within their very souls.

When watching this DVD it's difficult to believe that Tina was actually born in the first year of WWII,1939.Listening to her 2000 rendition of Nutbush City Limits,arguably her first solo release in 1973, it's incomprehensible that many white radio stations simply would not then give it air time. But, more than three decades later,Tina demonstrates just how powerful she remains - and how powerful she was then. She simply blows away the countless "blonde,blue eyed,bubble gum,girl singers" who have risen to fame and faded during her long reign.

When push comes to shove this is "must have" collector's DVD for any serious broad minded music lover. If a cross genre definitive history of popular twentieth century music is ever written then surely Tina Turner must be in the echelons of greatness alongside Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles, Elvis, and Michael Jackson.

Buy this DVD and savor a truly genuine diva in action - but beware, Tina has certainly not reached pensioner status gracefully!

The video itself is well put together and gives you the flavour of the concert. Tina was her brilliant self and I enjoyed every minute of it. The reason I have given it a 4 star rating is because the interaction between Tina and the audience has been cut down to a minimum. I was at the concert as it was being filmed and as other reviewers have said, songs have been chopped out and especially Tina's "Whats Love Got To Do With It" with the audience has been left out just leaving the song. What a shame! The introduction of the key musicans has been left out leaving them to be mentioned in the closing credits. I feel that having been there and now having the video, I have the complete picture - its a shame that fans that were not there, will miss out on the icing on the cake. It will be a cherished video and I can recommend it for what is on it. One day someone might release an uncut version.
