Music fans planning to burn off those post-Thanksgiving calories with some holiday shopping are in luck: Some of pop’s biggest divas dropped live DVDs on Monday (November 21): [artist id=”1236911″]Beyoncé[/artist], [artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist], [artist id=”2389485″]Taylor Swift[/artist] and [artist id=”501686″]Britney Spears[/artist] all have concert specials out, just in time for your Black Friday wish list. Here, MTV News breaks down the four releases (and one more to watch out for).
Just as Taylor wraps up her Speak Now Tour this week, the American Music Award winner is releasing “Speak Now World Tour – Live.” The 18-song DVD features Swift performing some of her biggest tracks during that arena-filling trek. And if that’s not enough Taylor, there’s also a 16-song CD that fans can snatch up.
Filmed over four shows in New York, weeks before B announced her pregnancy at the VMAs , the “Live at Roseland” DVD special shows the Queen B recounting some of the greatest moments of her career before launching into a nonstop live performance of her 4 album. It also includes behind-the-scenes footage that gives fans their first look at the wedding dress Beyoncé wore the day she married Jay-Z.
Lady Gaga is giving her little monsters a front row seat to her epic Monster Ball Tour . Filmed during stops at Madison Square Garden earlier this year, the concert originally aired on HBO and earned the pop star an Emmy. The DVD also includes previously unseen material that didn’t make the final cut on HBO. In addition, Gaga is releasing a new album, Born This Way – The Remix, today.
After debuting her Femme Fatale live concert special on Epix earlier this month, Spears is releasing the spectacle on DVD this week for those who may have missed it. Full of costume changes, swirling dance numbers and a sexy lap dance, this special is perfect for the Brit enthusiast.
One to Pre-Order: Adele
A fifth diva will get into the game on Cyber Monday. On November 28, Adele drops her own concert special, “Live at the Royal Albert Hall.” And given that it might be a while before the singer hits the road again (she’s on the mend from throat surgery ), the DVD will at least give fans a taste of Adele’s live stage show.
