With the holidays fast approaching, there are several high-profile DVD/Blu-ray releases set to land before the end of the year. Here is the latest news to share...
Lady Antebellum Own the Night World Tour set for release on December 4, 2012
Lady Antebellum’s headlining tour traveled across the US, Canada, Europe and Australia, where the Grammy winning trio was welcomed by over one million fans in 11 countries on three continents. Lady A sold out shows in top markets including Los Angeles, Chicago, two nights in New York City, Toronto, London, three nights at Sydney’s Opera House and even had a chance to open a sold out show at London’s Hard Rock Calling for one of their idols Bruce Springsteen.
The concept for the stage was simply sketched out on a paper plate while out on tour the summer of 2011 and evolved into one of the trio’s proudest accomplishments as a band.
Before taking the show overseas, Lady Antebellum celebrated the final weekend of the North American leg by documenting the show from Little Rock, AR.
The 90-minute performance includes #1 hits “I Run To You,” “We Owned The Night,” “American Honey,” “Just A Kiss,” “Our Kind of Love,” and, of course, the greatest selling country single of all time, “Need You Now.” Among the performances are documentary excerpts depicting their lives as songwriters, musicians, and close friends.
According to Variety, “Lady Antebellum certainly pushes all the right buttons in concert: backdrops dominated by shooting stars and bucolic scenery, a careful placement of the hits--but there's more to their appeal than just that. Their palette is broader, more forcefully colored than most of their peers, and the soulfulness that results is unmistakable.”
Lady Antebellum is currently nominated for “Vocal Group of the Year” and “Album of the Year” for OWN THE NIGHT at the 46th Annual CMA Awards. OWN THE NIGHT debuted at the number one position on Billboard’s Top 200 and has spawned two number one hits “We Owned The Night” and “Just A Kiss.” The trio has sold over 11 million albums across the globe, scored seven GRAMMY Awards and tallied six number one hits.

Patti Smith Live At Montreux 2005 will be the singer-songwriter's first-ever live DVD release
Smith’s vibrant live performance – a fervent intermingle of visual artistry, musical exploration, spoken word, and Rock ‘N’ Roll – is beautifully captured on Live At Montreux 2005 via DTS Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1, and Dolby Digital Stereo. This Montreux concert was filmed in the midst of their 2005 tour in support of the 2004 album Trampin’. This is the first ever live video release by Patti Smith and includes classic tracks such as “Because The Night,” “Dancing Barefoot,” “People Have The Power,” “Redondo Beach,” “25th Floor,” and many more. In addition, they also serenade the legacy of Bob Dylan, with a performance of “Like A Rolling Stone.”
Along with Patti Smith on vocals, guitar and clarinet, the band line-up includes original Patti Smith Group members Lenny Kaye (guitar & vocals) and Jay Dee Daugherty (drums), Tom Verlaine of Television on guitars and long standing band member Tony Shanahan on bass, keyboards and vocals.
“There’s something magical about seeing Montreux on our tour itinerary,” says Lenny Kaye. “Along with a sense of achievement in becoming part of its grand tradition, there’s an awareness of the many Those who have played here over the years, the tribute that must be paid, the higher level of artistic exploration and audience sophistication that enhances the possibilities for taking a performance one step further. We partake of a sense of communal belonging within the mandala that is human musical expression.”
Patti Smith was one of the key artists in the breakthrough of New York City punk rock. The 1975 debut album Horses was a landmark release, from her unique vocals and lyrics, to the strikingly androgynous cover art, shot by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (Patti dons this exact outfit in the 2005 concert). Horses was a huge influence on the whole New Wave genre, and paved the way for 11 additional albums, as well as several published poetry collections.
Smith’s distinctive blend of rock, punk and poetry combined with her uncompromising style has ensured that she has remained a credible artist throughout her career, and continues to influence artists to this day.
