Published Oct 27, 2011New York City's Roseland Ballroom has a capacity of about 3,200, meaning that it's a fraction of the size of most of the venues that Beyoncé plays. So while a only chunk of fans were able to attend when she performed there back in August, soon we'll all have a chance to watch the show when the mega famous R&B singer releases Live at Roseland through Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records.
A press release notes that the performance finds the singer "backed by her all-female band, with an additional string section." Recorded a few months after she released her recent LP 4, the show also includes "spirited stories detailing her journey before the album, 4, including her years before and with Destiny's Child." Beyoncé executive produced the DVD and even co-directed it with Ed Burke and Anthony Green
The 26-song DVD will drop exclusively at Walmart on November 21. A little more than a week later, on November 29, a two-DVD deluxe edition will be released worldwide. This package, entitled Live at Roseland: The Elements of 4, will include a 20-page booklet, bonus offstage footage and a collection of music videos. The concert doc is "filled with never-before seen footage that captures Beyoncé'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."
This deluxe set will include the brand new video for the album cut "Party," featuring J. Cole. The video includes some flashy costume changes and -- you guessed it -- a party scene. Hopefully this clip doesn't earn Beyoncé any more plagiarism claims. Watch it below.
