PRESS RELEASE: BEYONCE’S INTIMATE EVENT SEEN BY A LIMITED AUDIENCE AVAILABLE TO FANS WORLDWIDE
When Beyonce took the stage back in August for four electrifying nights at the famed Roseland Ballroom, only 3,500 lucky fans per night, who bought those tickets in a record 22 seconds, were able to catch the intimate shows in the historic New York venue where she managed to turn a club into a coliseum.
Praised as “robust,” “finely-tuned,” and “compelling” by The New York Times, “4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce” at Roseland Ballroom, was a tour de force for the entertainer. It was the only time she would perform her new album, 4, almost completely and to a very limited audience. Backed by her all-female band, with an additional string section, the performances were punctuated with spirited stories detailing her journey before the album, 4, including her years before and with Destiny’s Child.
On Monday, November 21, just in time for Thanksgiving, fans who longed to be at those shows can get up close and personal with Beyonce and experience for themselves the energy and magic that filled the Ballroom with the release of Live At Roseland, exclusively at Walmart. The 26-song live DVD brings the quaint setting turn stadium performances to your living room.
And on Tuesday, November 29, Live At Roseland: The Elements Of 4 deluxe package, a two-disc DVD, with the complete concert, bonus offstage footage, a 20-page booklet and a video anthology that includes seven videos from her latest album, 4, will be released worldwide. The concert documentary is filled with never-before seen footage that captures Beyonce’s life from eager five-year-old music fan to a consummate entertainer who is in control of every inch of her life and career.
In advance of the DVD’s release, the new video for “Party,” included in the anthology on the deluxe DVD, was aired on BET’s 106 & Park and online with VEVO and Beyonceonline.com. Directed by Beyonce and Alan Ferguson, “Party” is the sixth video released from “4″ and features rapper J Cole with cameos from Solange and Kelly Rowland.
Live At Roseland was directed by Beyonce, Ed Burke and Anthony Green and executive produced by Beyonce for Parkwood Entertainment, in association with Columbia Records.
