Alter Bridge Premiere Video Clip from Upcoming ‘Live at Wembley’ DVD
Alter Bridge have posted a sneak peek at their upcoming concert film ‘Live at Wembley.’ See the band perform ‘Slip to the Void’ below and read on to check out guitarist Mark Tremonti’s thoughts on the DVD release.
Alter Bridge are currently on hold while Mark Tremonti works with Creed and puts the finishing touches on his upcoming solo debut, while vocalist Myles Kennedy wraps up recording ‘Apocalyptic Love‘ with Slash and the Conspirators. Both Tremonti and Kennedy will tour with those acts over the course of 2012, but fans of Alter Bridge will have the band perform live this year from the comfort of their own living rooms.
‘Alter Bridge Live at Wembley’ is a concert film the band shot during their career-defining performance at the legendary London venue last November. “When the tour was booked, we saw that there were a few arenas, Wembley being one of them,” Tremonti tells Music Radar. “We were excited and nervous, wondering if the tickets would sell. They did, and we were blown away.”
“The first four or five songs of any set are usually pretty nerve-racking; those are the tunes where we’re finding our footing and trying to get comfortable. But Wembley was different,” adds Tremonti. “Even with all of the cameras and the fact that we were filming and we couldn’t make any mistakes, it was fun right from the start.”
The guitarist explained that after the break up of Creed, Alter Bridge had to build a relationship with the UK fans from the ground up. “We went back to the UK and worked our way up through the clubs and some bigger places. Establishing yourself or re-establishing yourself can be a battle sometimes, but in this case, it’s really paid off, and it’s all because of the fans. They dig the tenor vocalists and guitar solos. Those kinds of elements seem to connect in England more than they do in the States for some reason.”
‘Alter Bridge Live At Wembley’ features the band performing hits like ‘Rise Today,’ ‘Watch Over You,’ and ‘Isolation’ and will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and CD March 27, with a limited 3D theatrical release later in the year.
