After having seen Donny Osmond three times now, again, after taking the wife, this is not an excuse too; this DVD Concert at Scotland's Edinburgh Castle is not a bad piece of work. The gig was filmed in July, at the height of his "The U.K. Summer Nights Tour", during 2004.
He was half way through his open-air Stately Homes and Castle shows of the U.K., this included Powderham, Cardiff, Warwick, Liverpool (the only indoor gig of the tour, it must rain a lot in Liverpool?), Edinburgh, Chatsworth (the first Stately Home gig, and the gig that we saw him at), Broadlands, Norwich and finishing off at Leeds Castle.
Directed by Phil Griffin, who also directed the Breeze On By video, which appears as an extra on the DVD, this was filmed in London while taking a mid tour break, between the Broadlands and Norwich gigs. There is also a "Making Off" of the Breeze On By video. As well as an interview with the Man himself, there is too, a Edinburgh Diary, picture gallery, a bonus video called "Whenever You're in Trouble", two bonus concert tracks and of course the Breeze On By Video and behind the scenes of said video.
The soundtrack here is through Digital Theatre System (DTS) Digital Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround then we have old-fashioned Stereo 2.0, anyone remember that?
The tour promoted his then latest album "What I Meant To Say", which he performs some of the tracks on this DVD Concert, some examples as, Could It Be I'm Falling In Love, Seasons Of Love, Puppy Love, In It For (yep you guessed it) Love.
Not forgetting also, tracks like This Is The Moment, Whenever You're In Trouble, Go Away Little Girl, Too Young, Love Me For A Reason, Would I Lie To You (that's my favourite). Then others like, Shoulda Known Better, Breeze On By, Immortality and rounding off with the only British number one track that he had, then with the Osmond Brothers during the Seventies, Crazy Horses.
Donny and his crew are having fun on stage, and the screaming hoards of his female fans, (and a tiny collection of husbands cum taxi drivers), are no different too. A good time was had by all, and this is a great piece of DVD memorabilia for his adoring fans, female fans that is, to drool over, oh somebody catch me, I'm about to faint.
