Some of the music industry's biggest names will pay tribute to Bob Dylan in this concert hitting the stage on Blu-ray in March. You can pre-order the disc now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony Legacy is preparing 'Bob Dylan: 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration' for Blu-ray on March 4.
On October 16, 1992, New York City's hottest concert ticket was the live gathering of musical giants, legend and archetypes who'd come to Madison Square Garden to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Dylan's first Columbia Records album and play a selection of Dylan songs from culturally iconic (John Mellencamp's no-nonsense "Like A Rolling Stone") to bootleg obscure (Lou Reed's acerbic take on "Foot of Pride") that had moved and inspired them over the decades.
The four hour show, performed for a sold-out audience of more than 18,000 fans and live-cast around the world, brought together an unprecedented roster of artists and icons including Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Lou Reed, The Clancy Brothers, Ritchie Havens, Johnny Winter, Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Ron Wood, Chrissie Hynde, The O'Jays, Eddie Vedder, Sinéad O'Connor, Tracy Chapman, George Harrison (then making his first US concert appearance in 18 years) and more. Providing musical backing throughout the show was an ensemble dream team featuring three members of Booker T. & The M.G.'s, G.E. Smith on guitar with Jim Keltner and Anton Fig on drums.
Specs have not been announced yet but the Blu-ray will feature a new HD video master and remastered audio, and supplements will include: Behind The Scenes (40 minutes of previously unreleased rehearsal footage, interviews and more).
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.98.
