A MUST FOR NOT ONLY CYNDI FANS BUT ALSO LOVERS OF MUSIC
on 16 June 2004
Sexy and sassy,funny and kookie, a little mad and eccentric. Cyndi is all of these but above all she is a superb singer and a great performer.
Most people probably think Of "Girls just want to have fun" when the name Cyndi Lauper is mentioned, but in the twenty years since she released that song she has made some outstanding songs,a lot of which are included on this dvd.
Cyndi has an amazing vocal range and this is put to good use as she powers her way through songs old and new.
Cyndi has the ability to take a song a make it her own,just listen to "Stay" "Walk on by" and "Unchained melody" and you will think they are Cyndi originals not covers.She has also updated many of her older songs and put a new slant to them. "She bop" and "Time after time" are reworked brillantly,but the highlight for me is the superb "True colours" which Cyndi sings with such passion and emotion it will bring a tear to your eye.
It is a brilliant concert a mixture of old and new, fast and slow songs. It is also well directed, sometimes concerts are over edited and have far to many camera changes,but this dvd tends to focus on Cyndi which is of course what we want.
I'm a little jealous of the crowd because I would love to have been there but this dvd is close to the real thing and will make you almost beleieve you are there.
Cyndi is brilliant and the dvd is superbly made, a winning combination.
