'Morrissey 25 Live' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Sep 25, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The celebrated English musician is bringing his live show to Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock is preparing 'Morrissey 25 Live' for Blu-ray on October 22.

This is the first authorized Morrissey live concert video in 9 years and it features classic tracks from across his career including "You Have Killed Me," "Let Me Kiss You," "Everyday Is Like Sunday," "Meat Is Murder," "Irish Blood, English Heart," "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris," "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side," "Alma Matters" and many more.

Shot in high definition during Morrissey's most intimate gig in decades at the Hollywood High School in Los Angeles on March 2, 2013, the film opens with fans divulging their unwavering allegiance to the singer and the unique appeal of this unusual venue – a striking contrast to the sold out arena concert at the Staples Center on the previous night. Tickets to the concert in the 1,800-seater school auditorium had sold out in 12 seconds and this now legendary concert became Morrissey's penultimate performance on the US Tour.

Featuring many classic tracks from the artist's prolific repertoire, in a setting that most fans could only dream of, Morrissey 25 Live is a fantastic career-spanning event, one that cannot be missed by fans worldwide.

Technical specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: four exclusive tracks recorded in a studio session, "The Kid's A Looker;" "Scandinavia;" "Action Is My Middle Name" and "People Are The Same Everywhere"; a mini feature "Behind The Scenes At Hollywood High"; and a segment entitled "Grissle Bandage Present Lord Mudslide" which features Russell Brand's introduction to the Hollywood High School show.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
