Story Synopsis:
R. Kelly, Mr. Show Biz himself (who could forget his pee

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 picture is rather soft, and the jerky camera transitions, while dizzyingly chaotic, actually match the music well; R. Kelly gives different amounts of time to each song, mixed into a fluid montage of music, while never actually completing them. The actual picture quality varies with the cameras used. Some show good shadow delineation and deep blacks, while most just deliver a field of dark gray without any real detail. The quality is typical of the average stage performance. (Danny Richelieu)
