Who runs the world? Well the world of entertainment that is? I’d say Bono is up there, Brad and Angie too, but the couple that definitely runs the world of music has to be Beyoncé and Jay-Z. So with that in mind, it excites me to announce Beyoncé’s highly anticipated Live At Roseland DVD will be on sale from the 5th of December.
Back in August a limited audience got to see the multiple Grammy winner do what she does best at the famed Roseland Ballroom. Only 3500 tickets were made available for each of the four shows, and to cement her status as ‘King B’ the shows sold out in 22 seconds (a record).
Critics at The New York Times described the show as “robust,” “finely-tuned,” and “compelling”. The show included material from her latest album, 4, as well as stories and performances from her previous records and from her Destiny’s Child days. In total you will get to see 26 songs in the DVD, awesome. I bet I sound like the Verimark voice-over dude when I say, but wait there’s more.
If you decide to get the deluxe version, you’ll get a two-disc DVD, complete with the full concert, offstage footage, and a video anthology that includes seven videos from 4. This is definitely one of the best Christmas presents you can give someone.
You can also catch the show on Channel O, DStv 320 on Sunday the 4th at 6pm if the above hasn’t sold you. Watch it and believe you me, you will be waiting patiently for the music stores to open so that you can own this little piece of history and magic.
