Barney in Concert is the seventh and second-to-last video in the Barney and the Backyard Gang series, and Barney's first ever stage show. The concert took place in March 1991, and was released on video four months later, on July 1, 1991.
Barney and the Backyard Gang perform at the Majestic Theater in Dallas, Texas, singing both familiar childrens tunes and hits from the video series. Barney introduces a new friend named Baby Bop, a shy two year old triceratops, who joins in the show after meeting the Backyard Gang.
This was the first Barney video to be televised, as part of the Barney & Friends Family Marathon.
This is the first video to feature a slower arrangement of "I Love You" as heard on Barney & FriendsSeason 1. At the end, before the curtain call starts, there's a extra piano arpeggio, but it gets drowned out by everyone saying goodbye. The instrumentals are clearly heard on the soundtrack.
In the 1995/1996 re-release of this video (as well as the 2000 re-release), Bob West re-dubbed "Everyone is Special" using the current lyrics for the song, as apposed to the ones originally used. In addition, the "Everyone is Special" bit in the credits medley is rearranged. Other than those differences, the video is the same as the original 1991 release.
The rendition of the "Barney Theme Song" used in the show uses similar instruments that were later used in the Barney & Friends version of the song.
In 1992, Time Life Video released an audio cassette featuring all 19 songs from this video, in addition to selling most of the Season 1Barney & Friends episodes on VHS. Another cassette was released by Lyons themselves.
