Fantastic Show and shows the real Leona Lewis,
This review is from: The Labyrinth Tour - Live At The O2 (Audio CD)
She's boring, she only stands at a microphone and her concerts are mostly empty. Some of the nonsense you hear from so called journalists. Well judge for yourself. Leona sold over 200,000 tickets for her first UK tour and trust me she doesn't just stand at a microphone and sing ballads for 2 hours. It's a full on proper show, she dances, gets put up in a tree and sings whilst swinging in the air.
Vocally Leona has always been excellent, she shows it here, no silly miming, she does full on pop numbers like Outta My Head to the stunning First Time Ever I Saw Your Face ballad.
The DVD has been well put together and beautifully shot and edited with care, there are plenty of uptempo numbers from Leona including Better in Time, Take a Bow (a stunning performance) the cracking Forgive Me (the live arrangement is so much better than the studio version), Sweet Dreams and so on.
My only minor gripe is she didn't perform Naked (the track that is!) and I See You the theme from Avatar was shortened. However, for ballad fans Leona nails Can't Breathe and the excellent Homeless.
If you want to see some plastic barbie doll who has to mime whilst she dances (you know who you are) this is not for you, but if it's someone who is a craftswoman at her art of singing then this should rock your boat.
