"All in all, this was marvelous entertainment and a great spectacle. In a recent interview Bublé said that his mantra for the new tour was “elevate, elevate, elevate” above what he’d delivered on previous tours and felt confident that his new show was a huge step up in production.
"I came to the show as the owner of not a single Bublé album and yet was thoroughly entertained from the first song to the last. You can’t ask for much more really."
Anytime a concert is called "marvelous entertainment and a great spectacle," it usually means it's a must-see show.
That statement could not be more true in regards to Michael Bublé.
In a recent review from “Get To The Front,” David Dunn says the show is something to behold.
"The stage show itself was easily one of the most spectacular I’ve seen, with innovative use of video effects behind the band and orchestra and visuals that were so pinsharp you could have been forgiven for thinking you were watching a bluray feature. Another nice feature was the band introductions which were accompanied by US-style sports graphics, with spinning images, birthplace and college details, and date of “draft” to the band.
"It sounds cheesy, but it was in fact a smart touch, enabling Buble to sit stage right, telling brief anecdotes about each band member as they got a moment in the spotlight."
In another review from the "Mirror," the writer goes into detail about how Bublé won him over. He may not have been a fan before the show, but he certainly was after.
"Firstly I think I need to put a violent disclaimer on this review – I wasn’t too sure about going to see Canadian crooner Michael Bublé at the O2 for his To Be Loved Tour. Sure, some of his songs get my feet tapping and obviously I am not immune to his silky Sinatra-style voice but three whole hours? With my mother? Well, let’s just say I didn’t think it was going to be the highlight of my year.
"How wrong I was."
Indeed, there's something about Bublé that seems to win people over of all ages. Whether it's his charm, his voice or his unrivaled stage presence, Bublé's appeal knows no bounds.
