Filmed before an awestruck audience in Dublin on November 22nd and 23rd, 2003, this is a great way to experience David Bowie's REALITY album in a live setting. Of course a number of older songs are dusted off and given thoroughly modern interpretations as well, with Bowie clearly delighted to have such a welter of fine material at his fingertips. In fact Bowie and his band had rehearsed 60 songs for the "Reality" tour, and drew liberally on them throughout the resulting shows. The 30 songs here comprise most of the audience favorites, and include classics such as "Be My Wife," "Under Pressure," "Life On Mars," "Heroes," and "Ziggy Stardust." But it's not just the oldies that the crowd came to see, and material from the REALITY and HEATHEN albums also receive a warm response. An electrifying, charismatic performer, Bowie's legend is well earned.;
"[This] showcases the newly unpretentious chap mixing up old jewels and tracks from REALITY with cool, casual genius."
