I guess I'll add my 2 cents- I actually went and saw it in the theatre. We were VERY spread out, I would say maybe 20 people in the whole theatre, so it felt fairly safe.

Seeing this combined with the "Show them the way" video has brought me a bit closer to my "old relationship" with Stevie since she fired Lindsey. I don't "love" her the way I once did, don't find her nearly as endearing, and am quite put off by how self-indulgent she's become (or maybe always was). Nonetheless, I've felt a bit more of that Stevie magic than I have felt in quite a while.

Overall I really enjoyed the concert, a few thoughts

-Her stories were mostly cute, if again sometimes a little too self-indulgent. -The new songs were great, and I was pleasantly surprised by the powerful and different take on GDW, especially the ending.
-Seeing the blue shawl during Bella Donna- that's the moment that did me in. That's the Stevie I love. Why doesn't she wear many shawls any more??? I noticed no story about the shawl and her mom being shocked at how much it cost, but that it's held up beautifully and was actually a great purchase. I loved it when she showed it off, so I missed that.
-Edge was def missing something with the bridge cut and not wearing any white. Would putting on a white cloak/shawl really be too difficult? It really does add something that is missing here.
-It would have been nice if she tried to make this show a little special vs. the other ones- doing the longer Edge, wearing more shawls, doing the high notes in Gold and Braid, etc.

But overall I must say it's a treat. I was glad to be reminded a bit of the Stevie I feel in love with. Hoping for the option to be able to purchase it soon!

I agree 100% with everything you say. I paid the 19.99 for the VOD and watched it yesterday. She sucked me in during Wild Heart/Bella Donna. I also loved New Orleans and Moonlight. I was at this show in Pittsburgh and really wanted to see myself in the audience. I see me several times pretty well during Enchanted. I was in front of Carlos, a few rows back on the end. Anyway, I could have done with out the stories. I remember years ago, wanting to know what every word in her songs meant, now, not so much. LOL. GDW brought chills. I loved it. Seeing it on the screen was so much better than being there actually. You're able to really see things you missed during the concert. Now I know why she wanted to do Stop Draggin' my heart around again. No Chrissy this time. I am still bewildered why she had Lindsey canned, but I guess I can still enjoy the music she has brought to the world. I really did enjoy this movie.

I haven’t seen a rock or pop concert in a movie theater since I saw Jonathan Demme’s film of a Neil Young concert in Nashville about ten years ago (beautiful movie it was, too, with a closing scene that seemed to summarize not only Neil Young’s body of music but his personality). The movie was good at giving you glimpses into the performer and his work that you wouldn’t have had merely by being at the show. That’s what a good concert film can do: The Last Waltz, The Song Remains the Same, Monterey Pop, Stop Making Sense, Rolling Thunder Revue, Rattle and Hum, Soul Power, and I’ve heard that Springsteen’s Broadway movie does the same thing. Is this Stevie thing interesting in a cinematic way? Or is it just a long-form MTV-ish video with fast and choppy cutting and TV camera setups? Does it have anything to make the film itself memorable twenty years from now to movie lovers? Or is it just a Stevie Nicks fan memento?

Cinematically, the only cool thing is Gold Dust Woman crack head. They have drone view shots and perspectives from the front or first few rows which are nice but it's not a concert film like Shine a Light

It's a good concert but it's a concert. If you saw the tour or didn't see the tour, you'll like it. But it's kind of like a one time watch. The only impressive costume is the Moonlight one.

It actually screened every day from 10/21 through 10/25 just not every day in every city.
There was also one screening in NYC on Thursday 10/22.
I didn't know that it played all week in some theatres. It didn't at the theater I saw it at. Only Wednesday and Sunday..
That's still a decent box office gross though. Especially when you look at the current climate of the box office ever since movie theaters reopened.
I'm just bummed I have to wait to purchase it!
I'm not paying $19.95 to rent it for 48 hours. I paid $15 to see it at the cinema.
I'll wait and buy the DVD. I'd buy a digital copy on Vudu as well, as I have a decent library in my digital locker there.

It's not going to sell many CD's. Live albums don't generally sell many copies.
