ALTER BRIDGE LIVE AT WEMBLEY

Release date: March 27, 2012

Review by: ~ Mo

If you had asked the members of Alter Bridge in 2003 where they would like to see themselves in 10 years, they would tell you that performing a headlining show at the legendary Wembley arena in London would be a dream come true. On November 29, 2011, 8 years later, Mark Tremonti, Myles Kennedy, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips realized that dream, rounding out their 2011 European tour.

Daniel E. Catullo III (Producer, Director and master visual artist), and crew orchestrated an epic concert; multiple cameras, complete with pyro and lazers, AB Live at Wembley is a must-have for any Alter Bridge fan. It should be noted that Daniel literally talked Mark Tremonti into adding pyro to the show, and with no rehearsals, went off without a hitch. This footage will be revealed in all its glory in several songs on the DVD. Daniel and crew worked feverishly over the Christmas 2011 holiday to meet the deadlines necessary for AB Live at Wembley's March 2012 release, and for your viewing pleasure. Kudos to Daniel and his Team!

The 3-disc set includes a 14-song CD, a DVD of the complete 21-song concert, and a documentary/photo gallery DVD.

DVD 2 - DOCUMENTARY AND PHOTO GALLERY

The documentary is a trip down "The Road to Wembley" replete with backstage antics, pre-show rituals, warmups and a unique opportunity to hear what the boys in the band think about each other.

When you sit down to watch this DVD set, do yourself a favor and turn off your phone...dim the lights, or better yet light some candles and bask in the magic that is a LIVE Alter Bridge show. In fact, I would love to hear your thoughts after watching this amazing DVD set. I would also be interested in hearing from anyone that did not like this DVD set for whatever reason. Better still, if are new to Alter Bridge, have never been to a Live AB show or have not heard them before, I want to know what you think. This DVD set should send Alter Bridge into the stratosphere in the states. As a fan, I have said this before...longtime and first generation Alter Bridge fans enjoy seeing them in small venues in the states, but this will change. We will have to share them with a larger fan base in bigger arenas; such is the price of success. I have always been of the opinion that Alter Bridge are the most underrated and talented band in the music business today.

Alter Bridge Fans: fasten your seatbelts. AB Live at Wembley is about to take you on the AB ride of your life! For those of you discovering Alter Bridge for the first time...welcome to the Alter Bridge Nation! It is growing my friends.
