Godsmack’s Sully Erna to Release ‘Avalon Live’ Box Set in April
Details have been revealed for Godsmack frontman Sully Erna's upcoming live DVD, which features Erna performing songs from his debut solo effort 'Avalon' and will be part of a box set loaded with extras like a documentary, posters, incense and more.
A few months ago Sully Erna told That Metal Show that Godsmack has a "special kind of retail piece" planned for 2012. If the upcoming limited edition 'Avalon Live' box set doesn't also fit that description -- we don't know what does.
Erna filmed last year's Dec. 16 concert in his native Boston, where he performed songs from his 2010 solo album 'Avalon,' with plans of releasing it as a DVD. Now the Godsmack frontman has revealed that 'Avalon Live' will be released as a box set and has a tentative late April release date.
The limited edition set includes 3 DVDs (the show, the 'Journey to Avalon' documentary and a behind the scenes doc), 2 CDs, a book, T-shirt, guitar pick, poster, incense, and a custom Sully Erna engraved metal box with a suede lining. There will only be 5,000 of the box sets produced for sale, but 'Avalon Live' will also be released on 2D and 3D Blu-ray later this fall.
Those expecting just a straight-forward live performance will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of production Erna put in to his solo act, which he previously described as "a world of beautiful scenery, world cultures and amazing cinematic visuals that will leave you breathless at times."
