Reviews of Bring Me Home - Live, Sade

Reviewed by Red House - Mmmm...good !

Sade is so lovely, and this concert was so nice. Obviously much-rehearsed, because it was flawless. I loved the huge on-stage screen backdrop and how it was used - in one number she appeared in different windows and doorways, really cool.

I especially enjoyed the short film extra that's included - little time clips from before, during, and after the concert, but jumbled in time sequence.

The sound quality and HD was immersive and felt like I was there. If you have only even heard one song of Sade's and like it, you will enjoy the whole concert.

Reviewed by Chevere - Tremendously Amazing!!!

I have all of Sade's "Live" recordings and this tops them all!!
Sade not only sings better but she looks better than ever.
The band that comprises Sade are extremly tight -knit and are fabulious!!! (Most of them have been together for decades)
The video effects are outstanding and add to the performance!!
One song in particular, has the sun rising and setting behind Sade while she sings. Breathtaking!!!
If you are a lover of Sade, like I am, you must have this DVD. (Blue-Ray if possible)

Reviewed by John - Phenominal SADE Concert in your living room!

I attended this SADE concert, the band's latest, twice in three days, and this DVD captures well the iconic band/woman who's music transpires decades. Reclusive and now in her mid-fifties, this may prove to be SADE's last concert. I hope not, but this DVD will help hold onto the fond memories. I highly recommend it, you won"t be disappointed!

Reviewed by Michael Stradford - The Best Tour of 2011

I was fortunate enough to see Sade twice on last year's Soldier of Love tour. As someone who sees a lot live concerts, it takes quite a bit for me to 'bow down'. With this show, I couldn't bow down deeply enough. Great song selection, a spectacular but tasteful stage presentation coupled with Sade's obvious appreciation of her audience's long standing loyalty, resulted in one of the best shows I've seen in the last 20 years.
The bluray edition of the concert film is immaculately produced and is a perfect record of a perfect show. I can't recommend this disc strongly enough.

Definitely worth buying if you like Sade. Especially if you went to the concert. We went to the concert in Phoenix and it was fantastic! I spoke to friends across the country and word-of-mouth was that this was one of the best concerts of the year - even for those years younger than us (we are mid-forties.) Saw some criticism on the number of cuts/edits. I did not believe these to be excessive. It seemed about right to me. The beautiful sets translated very well to Blu-ray. I own numerous concert discs and this is one of the best. Highly recommended!

We saw her concert in Atlanta last year. Couldn't wait to watch the DVD. Sounded great live but on this DVD she started out a little flat at first,but was in top form as the show went on. Of course...she looked great! The perfect example of less is more! Her band was outstanding, the lights and stage production for this DVD was exceptional. If you are a Sade fan,you have to get this DVD! Let's hope it's not another 9-10 years before she records and tours again.

This video product provided an exact representation of the performance that Sade provided during her tour. It provided wide diversification of the crowd's reactions, the performer's efforts and facial expressions. Havung been the the live performance it was a pleasure to see the performers up close and personal rather than from the distance you experience sitting in an arena. Also, information showing preparation and travel experience of the group was an added extra. Excellent all around.

My wife and I attended this concert at the Cleveland, OH stop and it was AMAZING! This video brings back the memories each and every time. The video quality is great so are the additional features. The audio is good but seems to distort at certain parts. I am very picky about my home audio and was let down, but don't let this deter you from purchasing.

Reviewed by Fred McGhee - Job Well Done

As a document of Sade's 2011 World Tour, this Blu-Ray more than gets the job done. Sophie Muller's direction here is like everything she does: classy, classic, romantic, and modern. Her camera operators do a terrific job of capturing the total package that this concert experience represented. Everything from the set design, lighting, laser work, stagecraft, and of course the music are intelligently presented and seamlessly integrated, producing a cumulative impact that in its live incarnation is emotionally very potent and significant.

All of the players get ample amounts of shine. Their camaraderie, respect and love for one another is on full and unapologetic display. What is also clear is the genuine sense of joy and appreciation Sade have for their fans. Regrettably, it is increasingly rare for people this beautiful and accomplished to be this down to earth, a trait that remains one of this band's enduring strengths. One also gets the sense that the band members also understand the times in which they and we live; they understand the place of their art in this world and appreciate their responsibility to furnish us with it.

Nothing can of course replace the experience of watching Sade live, but if you saw the band during the 2011 live tour, this Blu-Ray will more than put a smile on your face, you just might find some goose bumps on your skin and the chill down your spine happening all over again. If you did not have the fortune of seeing Sade live in 2011, this Blu-Ray will help you appreciate what all of the hullabaloo was about.

Originally saw the concert footage on Palladium. Since Sade is a favorite of mine, I went right to Amazon and ordered this DVD/CD.

Some "live" recordings can disappoint but this one does not at all.

Reviewed by ltrain - I will FINALLY be able to see this concert again

In keeping with the consistent theme expressed by those privileged enough to see it, the Sade tour of 2011 was one of the best put-together tour performances you could have seen.

To give some background to it, I went to see the performance they did in Philadelphia, PA. Which was the second city of the first week of the tour. I initially bought the tickets in the fall of 2010. For a concert date taking place at the end of June 2011. A Sade new CD release and/or concert tour (as fans would know) has become a rare event. Taking place about once every 10 years or so now. Who knows when (or if) there will be another opportunity. So, I wasn't going to miss it. But, I remember thinking, at the time, why were they selling tickets so early to an event taking place 9 months in the future. I, personally, had never bought tickets to an event so far in advance before. But, when I saw the finished production, I KNEW why. It was the preparation and planning involved. As compared to other shows, even the last Sade tour in 2001, it wasn't just a singing and playing performance. There was actually some creative thought put into the visual, as well. There were specific theme, costume and stage set-ups, according to each song. Of which, there was plenty of them included to satisfy any fan's preferences.

Reviewed by the way, I consistently say THEY because Sade is more than just a singer being backed up by some replaceable musicians. It is a GROUP. In more ways than one, I have discovered. Four core members (Sade Adu-lead singer, Stuart Matthewman-guitar/saxophone, Paul Spencer Denman-bass, Andrew Hale-keyboards) composing, playing and performing together since BEFORE their first album release in 1984. All performances and record sales divided equally amongst the members. With almost every song in their repertoire, written by a member or members in the group. As those who saw one of their performances can attest to, Matthewman was almost as popular as Sade, herself. Who has done a remarkable job over the years as lead singer especially considering that, according to her, it wasn't her intention to become a singer at all, in the beginning.

But, Sade has always been at the very top of my musical favorites. One of the few artists that I, literally, listen to every single song of their, now, 6 original recorded releases without skipping a single song or track. Ever since seeing a performance during one of their 2011 tour dates, I have visual images when I listen to a particular song I saw performed live that night. Now, with the documented video release of one of these concert performances, I won't have to rely on memory anymore.

You know, this is what it's about; a straight-up, top-notch, professional production. This was way more than just a concert, this was a major show. I surprised my wife with great seats, and two+ hours later, we walked out of there saying that was the best concert we've seen, period. Understand, we've been fans since day one, but never had the opportunity to see her in concert. The band is still as tight as ever, and the light show, cameras, silohuettes, ah, what a performance. Oh wait, I'm talking about the show we went to...well, that's my point. We put the disc in, turned out the lights, and as soon as Sade and band started rising up from the stage, my wife jumped out of her chair screaming, and it was on! The one thing that made the blu-ray better than the concert was I got to see that pretty face up close, and crystal clear on my large plasma.

Great concert, great blu-ray disc..if you're a fan, you can't go wrong.

Reviewed by Musicmaven55 - State of the Art Production

Let me say that I have been a Sade fan since the beginning so this review is not about her music per se. I also have her previous Sade Lovers Live DVD.
What separates this from most of the recent concert DVD's is the Blu-Ray but mostly the choreography and production values. Remember that Blu-Ray offers better sound and picture and this is where the lighting, photography and staging makes it stand out compared to many of the others out today. Sade fans will rejoice and those of us who weren't as fortunate to attend the show this time will have a wonderful souvenir of what is a great concert experience. By the way, the recent concert Blu-Ray that is comparable in production values and the type of show is George Michael's recent Blu-Ray from London. You might check it out if you are a fan.
With a good sound system you may find that owning a BluRay might be almost as good as being there.

Wow, now this is what a concert is supposed to look and sound like!!! I gave "The Bring Me Home" concert DVD 5 Stars only because that's the highest rating allowed. This is truly a 10 Star performance by Sade!! She's a Goddess and her voice is angelic!! The band is beyond sensational. I did something I never did before with a new DVD, I watched it back to back. I've watched this concert at least ten times in the month and a half I've owned it. Sade and her band truly are the soldiers of love!! They put on a SHOW for every band to try to be great enough to emulate. Sade sets the standard of perfection, mind, heart, body and soul. Heaven most definitely is missing an Angel while Sade performs for us mere mortals. To have her in your living room is as good as sitting in the front row to see and listen to Her and the Band. The new songs she introduced as well as some of her all time favorites were off the charts!! Their sheer greatness on this DVD is immeasurable by any standard. I also need to mention the production itself. The producers deserve a ton of credit for their part in making this listening and viewing experience out of this world. Thank You Sade!! You sing in one of your songs "it's never as good as the first time" but you only get better each time I watch your concert(s), especially this show!! I am totally in love with you.

Reviewed by Enzo M. - Great show...

I've always enjoyed Sade's music, live (once), on CD, DVD and now Blu-Ray. Bring me home is the second best of the bunch right behind actually being at the concert. Well, wait, there's no traffic in or out at home, I can freely use the bathroom when I need to, food and drinks are free (sorta) and my system brings me pretty damn close to actually being there (in feeling anyway). So, I don't know, the blu-ray could actually tie for first, even with traffic and all there's nothing quite like being at the show. Anyway, Sade have turned up the wick just enough to make this particular concert even more fun than the last few. The backdrops, images and that extra little bit of energy in the songs really come across plus the show feels somewhat more intimate compared to either of the previous two tours. These songs refuse to age as obviously does Sade herself, they sound as good as ever and she seems to become more beautiful as time passes. Minor criticisms (and, who am I?) is that I wish the guys would really let loose on some of the songs, like they'd really let rip with a slashing solo on guitar, sax or the drums. I don't mean that rehearsed jam they usually do at the end of smooth operator (not in this show) but actual improvisational riffing and jamming. They obviously have the chops so let em go! Other than that this is a very enjoyable blu-ray concert, one that I don't believe you even have to be a Sade super fan to enjoy. Although I have a surround sound system I've only listened to the PCM stereo track and it sounds very good, I played it pretty loud and you could still hear each instrument doing it's individual thing while coming together as a whole. The video can look a little grainy at times, especially for a blu ray but there are a lot of background lighting effects and such that could be adding to that perception. I give the audio (PCM stereo) 4.5 stars outta 5 and the video 4 out of 5 due to that occasional graininess. I give the Blu-ray 5 stars overall because it's just plain fun music to listen and jam along to.

The blu-ray quality is amazing for a show that is staged so wonderfully. The audio is off the charts -- "Is Sade in the room with me?".

Reviewed by markymarc - Mesmerizing!!...and John Legend wasn't bad either!

It was a warm summer evening July 9, 2011 (still daylight) in downtown Cleveland, Ohio with bumper to bumper traffic searching for a good parking spot. Just a few blocks away was a parking garage then the trek to the Quicken Loans arena. Going down the stairs to the awaiting floor seats just second section, center second row. The pounding of the bass drum signaling the start of John Legend's set beginning with Rolling In the Deep. Yes John Legend, not Adele. Must have been his favorite song at the time (as well as everybody else's!!). Excellent opening act.

Now the moment we have been waiting for with Soldier of Love, the opening from Apocalypse Now!! First thing I thought of anyway! Then the diva rising from the floor with the rest of her band!!! What a build up!! From then on, one after the other; Your Love is King, Skin to the dramatic opening of Smooth Operator & that kick ass bass solo that I never get tired of (& neither does Sade by her reaction!!). The lighting, sets, alternate, rockier versions of her biggest hits (Paradise my personal fave!) giving us the fans so much bang for our buck. I give this 5 stars as an ultimate souvenir of such an incredible night of music & class. The night was an anniversary present to ourselves (21st BTW!!) & we couldn't ask for better.

As far as the few criticisms go for this performance, it is definitely not the same as being there. I can clearly see the flaws in the DVD/Blue ray. But a must have document for any Sade fan that has been there or wasn't fortunate to see it in person. Her heart was definitely in this show! Thank you Sade Adu and your incredible band for such a mesmerizing, magical & unforgettable concert experience.

I saw the concert and that's why I bought this. It really provides good impression of this great concert for anyone that hasn't seen it. The extra material is also great since it shows Sade and her team behind the scenes. Being a private person, this is a rare and good footage of her.

I've been to 3 Sade concerts and I have to say, This Was My Favorite! My husband and I went to this concert in Indianapolis, and all through the show we kept saying, "They have to be taping for a DVD!"
The stage production was so elaborate and the sound was superb. She's back with the original band members (Sweetback) and it's like putting on your favorite jeans or those broke in shoes...Perfect! They sound phenomenal; and they do ALL THE HITS... Old & New!
The Blue-Ray quality made me feel like I was back in the arena. I even got to see some different things on stage, thanks to the different camera angles. The extras are cool to watch as well. You get to see Sade & the band behind stage and behind the scenes, and witness the production come together.
This is a MUST-HAVE for EVERY Sade fan! If you're not a Big Sade Fan now, you will be after watching this! If you've never seen her live, THIS IS THE ONE TO GET!

Saw the show in Seattle. Breathtaking! Man!

Sade does it with so much style, grace, confidence and intimacy!
Superb staging, lighting, sound and showmanship. The show, from start to finish is not only a feast for the eyes, it's a sexy,
sultry, seductive, orgasmic assault on the ears.

Sade Abu, long the perfectionist and singing only when she has something to sing about, after a 10 year hiatus, shows us all
why her LP "Soldier Of Love" (Debut at #1 in the U.S. and stayed on the charts for 14 weeks) produced a sound and feel that
made every one want to see Sade and Co. in concert after a 10 year hiatus from the stage as well!

With sold out shows on the original legs of the tour and the success of the LP, Sade extended the tour to Australia adding
dates, with a final show for this tour in Abu Dhabi making this the band's first WORLD TOUR and rounding success!!

They performed in front of over a half a million fans, many of the dates sold out in a tour that grossed over $53 million.

The 2011 concert dvd/cd combo debut at number 1 in the U.S. as well! Making Sade the 8th highest grossing tour of 2011.
Now, this tour will have to do for telling when the reigning queen of pop/soul/r&b/jazz and rock will get around to
treating us to another LP and Tour? Get your copy now!

Wonderful! That's the only way to describe this blu-ray. If you're a Sade fan, then this is a must have for you. You already have that big flat screen and hooked up the theater system, well, now it's time to put it to use. Put in the disc, pour a glass of your beverage of choice and let the party begin, you will not be disappointed.

As a side note, don't you love how Sade has proven that you don't have to follow some corporate formula or compromise yourself to achieve success. This disc and Sade's career in general, can serve as a blue print for so many young artists (male and female) who unfortunately mistake radio play for achievement and an uncovered body for talent. She truly raises the bar.

Thanks Sade for two decades of wonderful music.

Finally hooked up my Blu-Ray and the first video I played was Sade's live concert. After reading all the reviews here and listening to the live release, I had to have it to see the visuals. Amazing, the lighting, Sade, the band. This video just makes me wish I was at the actual concert. Yet, seeing it on Blu-ray is probably the best seat in the house. The visuals are almost as amazing as the band itself. The music is so well arranged, you would almost feel like you are listening to her CDs. From the intro to the end, Sade live is great. I hope it doesnt take her another ten years to release another album of new material and tour. This release definitely makes me want to experience it live. I remember hearing of her tour and seeing the ticket prices. After watching this video, I completely understand why the prices were high. GREAT show!!!!!! I cant say anymore, just great.
