Band to film new live DVD / Blu Ray and CD later this month
The band are set to film the entirety of their London o2 Shepherd's Bush Empire concert on Saturday February 19th. The concert will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in October 2011, and will also include a bonus live CD.
The London concert is part of Europe's "Balls 'N' Banners" UK tour which kicks off at the Glasgow o2 ABC on Thursday 17 February. The forthcoming DVD release will also include behind-the-scenes footage, including rehearsals and backstage banter filmed during the rest of the dates on the rest of the UK tour. Europe will perform music from their current album 'Last Look At Eden', plus classic tracks from their albums 'Wings of Tomorrow', 'The Final Countdown', 'Out of This World', 'Prisoners in Paradise', 'Start From The Dark' and 'Secret Society.'
"We're taking some new directions with our songs, and we're exploring different styles," says Europe's lead singer Joey Tempest about the songs from the Eden album. "There is a definite classic rock vibe on some of the tracks... a tip of the hat to groovin', funkin' 70s rock songs, but ones we have bought into the here and now."
