Sony BMG has unveiled full specs for 'Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds: Live at Radio City' Blu-ray, which will include the studio's first-ever support for Dolby TrueHD on a music title.

'Live at Radio City,' which last week lodged big sales when it debuted in the top 5 of Billboard's CD and DVD charts, is set for a Blu-ray debut on September 4.

The show, captured with nine HD cameras, will be presented in full 1080p/24fps high-def video. In a first for the Sony BMG label, the disc will include soundtracks in both uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround (48kHz/24-bit), as well as Dolby TrueHD at a hefty 96kHz/24-bit resolution.

As previously announced, supplements on the set will include the new "So Damn Lucky" documentary on the historic event, and a photo montage.

Sony BMG has set a $29.98 list price for the Blu-ray.

We've updated the listing for 'Live at Radio City' in our Blu-ray Release Schedule with final specs and box art, where you'll find it indexed under September 4.
