I Am... Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegasmarker is a live CD, DVD, and Blu-ray by American R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles. It was shot at the Encore Theatermarker, Las Vegasmarker, on August 2, 2009 during her worldwide tour I Am... Tour. Footage from the release aired on ABC on November 26, 2009.

Beyoncé's team arrived a week before the show, and devoted 10-hour rehearsal days all week in order to reconfigure the concert for the smaller 1,500-seat theater. A majority of the songs were performed acoustically. Also, Beyoncé performed songs that she had never before sung live especially for this intimate occasion. It features a simple and elegant stage and new costumes. In addition to Beyoncé's all female band, a new orchestra joined her for the live performance.

The concert will be released in three formats. The first is a standard DVD featuring the entire concert. The second, is what is being released in most countries, is a digipak featuring the DVD and two CD's containing the audio from the concert. The concert will also be released to Blu-ray.

About the Show

With less than 1,500 seats, the Encore Theater was the smallest, most intimate venue of Knowles' I Am... Tour. The "I Am... Yours" performance, staged exclusively for the theater (from July 30 to August 2, 2009), showcased her like never before. Knowles premiered live performances of songs from her latest album, I Am... Sasha Fierce, as well as songs from her previous albums, B'Day and Dangerously In Love. Her all-female band, Suga Mama which expanded to large live orchestra, joined her to perform the musical hits as well as classics and surprises. For this occasion Knowles changed her setlist, wearing new Thierry Mugler designed clothing and performing songs that she never sang before, such as "That's Why You're Beautiful" and "Resentment." Most of the songs were performed acoustically and the stage was also different. The show was described as unplugged by Knowles as a way for her fans to understand more about her as a performer and as a person.

Critical Reception

Beyoncé's I Am...Yours is a satisfying decade-and-then-some retrospective that reveals the artist's interesting back story with a personal warmth not always emphasized by our current cast of pop stars. From up-tempo Soul workouts to beautiful Pop ballads, Beyonce makes it look and sound so easy, yet there is so much more than meets the eye: she reaches in and touches the heart and soul of each and everybody in the room.

Track listing

The DVD and Blu-ray feature the entire concert (split into three parts), as well as over fifteen minutes of behind the scenes footage, while the two CD's include only the audio from the main performances.
