One of the best bands in the world,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Own The Night World Tour [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
Up to a few years ago if you had asked me for a list of my favourite bands it would included mainly rock bands like Zeppelin, Queen, Genesis, ACDC, Muse etc. and I would have said that I hated country music although I do like the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. In the last few years Lady Antebellum have become one of my favourite bands due to their incredible songs and the beauty of the combined vocals of Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott.
About 3 years ago I heard "Need you Now" on the radio. Maybe I heard it a certain time in my life but the song just resonated with me. I downloaded it and couldnt stop playing it. So I took a chance and bought the album "Need You now" and I couldnt stop playing that either. On my Itunes it is easily my most played album by some distance. I have listened to it on my ipod over 100 times and that doesnt include the times I have played it on CD ! I never tire of listening it.
Then followed Own the Night" also full of great songwriting and performances.
Last year I went to see them at Hammersmith Apollo in London with my daughter and found them to be even better live. Fantastic vocals and musicianship and a band who want to include their audience.
This DVD is top drawer. It combines the songs performed in concert at Little Rock, Arkansas with short films in between showing how the band grew, how they write songs, what goes on back stage, how they interact with their audience and their band and their world tour
Its exactly what you would want from a music DVD - your favourite songs and an insight into the performers.
Brilliant songs sung by two voices that sound perfect together. On songs like Need You Now, Hello World, Love This Pain, Run To you, Wanted You More and Just a Kiss they totally nail the emotional side of song writing with their powerful duets
On other songs like American Honey, Own the Night they celebrate life.
And hidden amongst the extras is their version of Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion which shows Lady Antebellum can rock !
Lady Antebellum have become one of my favourite bands and are responsible for some of the best songs ever written.
