5.0 out of 5 stars Top performance of diverse set, 23 Oct. 2004

This review is from: David Bowie - A Reality Tour [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
The DVD captures a full 140 min concert from Bowie and band enters the stage until they walk off following the last encore. The sound is excellent and the video editing has a fine balance between the documentary "being at the concert feel" and video effects.
This concert demonstrates the incredible strength of Bowie as a performer and also the strength of songs from all his periods. His performance of "Loving the Alien" shows that also songs from some of his belittled 1980s albums have terrific potential. Including some of the great songs he has written for others artists to record ("All the Young Dudes"/Mott the Hoople and "Sister Midnight"/Iggy Pop) gives you a rare opportunity to hear them performed by Bowie. "Sister Midnight" is fantastic. Recent songs like "Slip Away" and "Reality" shows that Bowie, unlike some others that have been around as long as he has, is as creative today as in the earlier years of his career. Bowie is old enough to be my dad - but what a cool dude he is! "Bring Me The Disco King" is even better in this live version than on the album.
Instead of making the concert a 'greatest hits' line-up Bowie has chosen a set that really has range from classics like "Changes", "Fame" and "Under Pressure" to less known songs like the wonderful "Fantastic Voyage" and "The Motel". The catch is that great classics like "Time", "Young Americans", "Golden Years", "Stay", "DJ", "Fashion", "Lets Dance" and "China Girl" are not included, but I think it sill makes for the more interesting and better concert.
It is hard to put your finger on something that is not good about this DVD. The only detail would be: Why is the menu music mixed so much louder than the concert itself?
