Supplementing the concert sequences are behind-the-scenes documentary segments, offering an intimate portrait of the Canadian singing sensation leading up to his landmark MSG concert.

Reviewing the concert for The New York Times, Stephen Holden wrote, “The thing at which Mr. Bublé excels is traditional pop singing, with an ear to the present. Whether swinging moderately hard or crooning, he effortlessly bridges the gaps among old-style big-band music, rhythm and blues, and mainstream pop. The cavernous Garden felt like an intimate nightclub.”

The multi-platinum-selling Bublé made his GREAT PERFORMANCES debut in December 2005 with his first solo television special "Caught In The Act."

Bublé sat down with WNET.ORG’s "SundayArts" host Christina Ha to discuss his music and the importance of Public Television. Watch the interview.

This program originally aired in 2010.
