$5000 a ticket and worth every centBy SmearCampaign (20 reviews) from Salford, UK , 31 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is the second of two concerts Barbra performed in 1994. It took an enormous sum of money, the best orchestra, and the perfect recreation of a tea room she liked in Vegas to use as a stage to get Barbra to sing again. Picture is excellent (although no widescreen) and te 5.1 sound is a world apart from the VHS of the other night. Even Michael Jackson, who was in the audience, appeared to enjoy himself!
Track listing includes amongst others- As if we never said goodbye, I'm still here/everybody says dont/dont rain on my parade (medley), people, will he like me?, im in the mood for love/speak low/guilty(medley), on a clear day, once upon a dream/when you wish upon a star/someday my prince will come(Disney Medley), happy days are here again, my man, for all we know.

Barbra - the voice!By Chrisaljack (412 reviews) from Hellingly , 07 Jan 2012This recording was made at the absolute pinnacle of Barbra Streisand's career. Her singing voice is at its peak of perfection. However this is not her best stage presentation: her concert made ten years later shows her at her absolute best as she has then honed her stage presentation and her delivery and humour enable her to connect with her audience so much better. Great show, but best yet to come!
SupberbBy Michaels (61 reviews) from Malvern , 15 Dec 2009In our view the finest singer of her type of all time, just a fabulous performance
A concert, not THE concertBy noirpanther (218 reviews) from London , 19 Oct 2006Though this is clearly the same Streisand production and tour, unfortunately it is not the same evening which was broadcast of her show, because that was a stunner, worthy of 5 stars.
Singing beautifully as usual, this lacks some of the songs included in the TV broadcast but adds a rather distracting and unnecessary sketch involving Barbra's exchange with comedian Mike Myers in drag. Still, an enjoyable watch.
Wonderful Barbra.....By a customer from Kent, England , 04 Feb 2006Yes this was really wonderful, I just love listening to barbra sing. The concert should have been longer. When is the next one? Please keep singing barbra.
WORTH VIEWINGBy a customer from england , 27 Apr 2005I was impressed with the picture and sound quality of this dvd. I wasn't keen on all of the songs but that's just my preference (the forward button comes in handy). I enjoyed the dvd and think it is proof that Barbra is a very talented lady.
