"...Gaudy irrepressible glory....Midler at very close range..."
Self-defined diva Bette Midler performs her take on comedy and perverse pop music in this unforgettable concert performance, filmed live at Pasadena's Civic Auditorium. Rotating between comic monologues and energetic musical numbers, DIVINE MADNESS proves why Midler has such a dedicated legion of fans. Vocal luminaries the Harlettes and Luther Vandross appear to help out Midler, which makes for a far more soulful experience. The film features 16 hit numbers, including "Leader of the Pack," "Big Noise From Winnetka," "Paradise," "Shiver Me Timbers," "Fire Down Below," "Stay With Me," "My Mother's Eyes," "Chapel of Love/Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Do You Want to Dance," "You Can't Always Get What You Want/I Shall Be Released," and many more. A must-have for fans of the pop diva, DIVINE MADNESS is also a perfect introduction to those unfamiliar with the entertainer's staged performances.
Bette Midler gives a stunning performance before a sellout Pasadena crowd. An exciting, high-energy musical experience, the concert film features 16 hit songs, including "Leader of the Pack," Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and "Do You Want to Dance'"
