I am not a great lover of live albums or live DVDs as they dont always match up to the real thing. I was extremeley fortunate to be at the first night of his show in Dublin. The audience was really excited and emotional, it was like going to prayer (OK maybe an exaggeration) but this DVD really does capture the essence of a fantastic show(s). What was also nice to see that the audience ranged form 15/16 year olds to the older Bowie fans like myself.
This DVD delivers on all counts. No one can really complain about the songs (as you get plenty)or thier quality. From the rousing Rebel Rebel as an intro to the legeddary Ziggy Stardust at the end it's a roller coaster ride through Bowie's well known and not so well known songs. A highlight is the mighty overlooked re-worked Loving The Alien.
Like other reviewers have stated there really are so many gems on here including:
All The Young Dudes- an audience rousing of singing and general euphoria.
Under Pressure - a song I was not ever that keen on has a new dimension with the wonderful voice of Gail Ann Dorsey bowies' bassist.
Life on Mars - just sublime even now.
Heathen - how this has become an audience favourite is beyond me (dont get me wrong I love it) but its tingling.
The Reality songs hold up very welll best for me being New Killer Star.
The Man Who Sold the World as it should be played.
A truly fantastic rendition of of Sister Midnight even as good as Iggys'
The obligatory Heroes but I wouldnt have it any other way.
The Ziggy finale to top it all off. We really do get to get our cake and eat it on this one.

The Reality Tour dvd would be the single best way to showcase the talents of David Bowie and this fabulous band. Many artists look back on their best years, but Bowie seems to have aged better than any, capturing a youthful performance of his oldest and newest hits in one concert. Filmed perfectly and sound enhanced to the highest quality, you can almost feel the sensation of being there yourself, and to be entertained in this way by a master of his craft surrounded by top musicians, friends and colleagues makes this a special album. Best advice is to buy it yourself and relax with what will become a classic collection in it's time.

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?

This is an excellent performance from Bowie's Reality tour filmed in Dublin in the autumn of 2003. Bowie is in top form, and is accompanied by a band that may be his best ever. The audience is very enthusiastic, and the song list is long and very well put together with many of the well-known classics (Fame, "Heroes", Ziggy Stardust), some very good oldies that are not so well known (Fantastic Voyage for example), a couple of really interesting reworkings (Loving the Alien is fantastic in its downstripped version), and several songs from Bowie's later work that I really appreciate like Hello Spaceboy, I'm Afraid of Amercians and several tracks from the brilliant and IMO instant classic Heathen. The performance is maybe slightly less theatrical than on some of Bowie's earlier tours, but there is still plenty of stuff going on on stage to watch. Some people don't like the somewhat busy and trendy editing, but I think it suits the performance.

I saw Bowie twice on this tour, both times in Oslo. The first time was indoors about a month before this was filmed, and I must say this dvd is very close to how I remember it. The last concert was at the very end of the tour in a park. That concert was probably even better. Sadly, Bowie suffered a heart attack only a couple of weeks after that, and I doubt that he will ever undertake such a major tour again.
