Remembering the days of wine & roses is what it feels like to attend a Michael Bublé concert. As someone in their 20’s whose only experiences of the “rat pack” was through my parents’ Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin albums, I am able to experience their music, class, style and persona in the present time via Bublé.
Recently, he released “Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden”, a documentary and concert DVD/CD set. I was an audience member for this exact show, and was thrilled to hear about the release of the DVD to commemorate the night for me.
Bublé brought down the house with his crooning style on songs like the sexy “Me and Mrs. Jones”, “I’m Your Man”. My personal favorites are his originals: “Home” and “Everything” as well as his smooth rendition of “Feeling Good”. One of the highlights was when he sang with no microphone whatsoever. His voice echoed throughout the garden–raw and fantastic!
The CD actually includes the song sans microphone, which I hope comes across for those that weren’t at the concert as well as it did for me.
The DVD not only has performances from Bublé, but candid interviews with the star on his rise to fame and discussing the sentimentality of playing New York’s well-known venue. You also learn about the kinship he has with his band and will get to meet his family.
“Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden” is a must-have for any fan of Michael Bublé or his style of music; it’s timeless and puts you in a vibe like no other. I can’t wait for the release of Bublé’s next album this fall! Check his website for updates: www.michaelbuble.com!
