5 stars The Tour of Life!

Pure magic returns. If you were one of the few lucky ones to catch Kate's one real tour consider yourself very fortunate. For the rest of us there's this video.

Kate pulls off a monumental and historic performance of live music and dance with some of her best early material. I've watched this many times and still get goosebumps during the opening of "Moving" which is nothing short of pure sensuality. Kate employs a headless mic which allows her total freedom of movement with the other dancers and she is an amazingly talented dancer. Costumes and conceptual pieces are tried at every turn making the evening packed full of surprises. Her band is surprisingly tight and rocking although they are kept in the background visually. The focus is on Kate and the mini-plays that each song turns into.

The set closes with "Wuthering Heights" and again the excitement in the audience and in the viewer's living room is overwhelming. This is one of the greatest live concert experiences on film. If you have any appreciation of Ms. Bush you MUST find a copy of this. Sadly many songs were edited out of the video release and apparently Peter Gabriel appeared with her on a few songs during one show. Hopefully that footage will be added to some future DVD release. 6 stars and I could not be more certain of calling this concert a masterpiece. Essential.
