    My light it up DVD arrived today...It's really nice....a couple of notes from Kells interview.

    Kells named it Light It Up Tour....referring to the lighting problems with the last tour (BOBW2) and that this time he was gonna make sure he was Lit Up.

    Kells said he didn't perform Worlds Greatest, I Can Fly, You Saved Me, etc because there was a time limit at each theatre and if he went over the time limit he would be charged extra money, ie 50,000 for going over. He would not have been able to sing as many songs, so he sang shortened versions of the hits. Kells mimicks a machine gun, 'giving us hit after hit', he said.

    Plus, he would want to perform those songs in full, prolly with choir and this tour really wasn't for that but he did leave open the possibility that the next tour might be just of songs like I can Fly, inspirational songs, you saved me type, etc.

    No backstage footage from Chicago. Just backstage in Oakland with the kiddies, crew and dancers.

    It was all that I expected. Glad they left out the basketball video. The 'betcha can't do it like me' dance segment wasn't on there, but no big deal. I thought that part was funny.

    The bonus segments are nice too. He's a great entertainer who always keeps his fans and what they want in mind.

    I'm sure it will bring back great memories of the 4 shows you attended. It's still early but I have not seen or heard any advertisements for it, so I'm not sure how many marketing dollars are being spent. But since Rob found his own outlet, Image Entertainment, I'm see he's keeping a nice cut of it.

    You can see George Daniels was there in Oakland too.

    I appreciate you breaking down what you saw mista! Sounds fantastic that he's considering performing those sonng in full version!!! He surely don't forget the weight the songs carry. And don't forget that there might be(really are-I know this) some fans who wanna hear them completely from the start to the end. I see....the time limit made him perform a lil bit of this and that. I fully understand, Kellz

    Yeah, to further make his point Rob was saying that sometimes songs like I believe I can fly, are very emotionally touching and can bring people to tears and that he didn't want the fans to be on a emotional up and down.

    It would a be odd transition going from the peak of I can Fly....straight into a song like We Thuggin or I'm F'in you tonight. That just wouldn't work on stage, imho.

    So he just hits the fans with his classic hits. We you see the dvd, you'll see the continuity in the songlist and sets.
