Disappointing, but still....it's Bette.
14 October 2012 | by (Windsor, CT) – See all my reviews

I'm watching this show for maybe the third time, hoping with each viewing I will enjoy it more than the previous times.

I'm as much of a fan of Ms. Midler as anyone else and would go to the ends of the earth to watch her live. However, this particular concert recording is missing much of the energy Ms. M usually brings to her performances. It seems as though she is tired and simply walking through the show to get through the night.

The hits are there....as is her old fashioned lovable tackiness. But the fun and tawdriness is missing.

But yet...I'm watching it again. That's how endearing she is. It's still Bette.
