Alter Bridge to Unleash ‘Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities’ Collection
Alter Bridge have been riding high on the strength of their most recent album, The Last Hero, but soon the band will have another addition to their catalog in the form of a new live set that's bolstered with some rarities as well.
Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities will be released Sept. 8 by Napalm Records and the band chose one of their biggest shows in their history to serve as the backdrop for the new collection. "To be able to perform here at the O2 is definitely one of the highlights of our career," says drummer Scott Phillips in the trailer above.
The band played London's famous music venue on Nov. 24, 2016, with the now documented performance showing exactly how far the band has come from early in their career. The 19-song set includes such favorites as "Show Me a Leader," "Rise Today," "Isolation," "Waters Rising" and "Blackbird" among others.
As previously stated, the set is bolstered with a rarities disc. Songs on the set include previously unreleased versions of "Cruel Sun" and "Solace" dating back to the One Day Remains album sessions. You'll also find "Breathe" from those sessions that was previously a Best Buy bonus track. There are also eight more songs in the rarities portion that have only been released to the Japanese audience prior to this set. See the full track listing below.
The Live at the O2 Arena set is available as a standard 3-CD set and also as a limited deluxe edition package, with the latter featuring an exclusive Alter Bridge documentary filled with interviews with the band members, their crew and family, taking you inside the preparation for the O2 show. Pre-orders for Alter Bridge's Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities are currently being taken at this location.
Meanwhile, Alter Bridge will be back on the road this weekend at the Rock Im Park and Rock Am Ring festival shows in Germany when they kick off their European tour. Stay up to date on all their shows by seeing the tour dates here.
