"Take Us Alive", the new concert DVD from reactivated Boston hard rockers Extreme, will premiere on the HDNet Concert Series on June 6 at 8:30 p.m. Et.
The band performed and recorded this "in-your-face" live concert in its hometown of Boston at the House of Blues. This is Extreme's first live DVD/CD showcasing the band's flawless performance of all its biggest hits, including "Hole Hearted", "Get The Funk Out", and the number one hit "More Than Words", as well as songs from all their records.
HDNet is your exclusive, high-definition home for popular, critically acclaimed original programming and will be broadcasting a tailored version of Extreme's "Take Us Alive" concert starting in June. If you miss the first airing, the concert will repeat that night as well as on June 13 at 5:50 p.m.
In 2008, following a 13-year hiatus, Extreme returned to the stage for its "Take Us Alive" world tour, which encompassed 75 cities and multiple continents in support of the band's new record, "Saudades de Rock".
This recording captures Extreme at the peak of its game with a renewed enthusiasm led by Gary Cherone's spellbinding stage performance and powerful vocals, Nuno Bettencourt's ferocious guitar, Pat Badger's flawless bass and Kevin Figueiredo's pounding drums and spot-on back-up vocals.
This brilliant performance was recorded on the last night of their tour at the House of Blues on August 8, 2009 in Extreme's hometown of Boston.
"We wanted to do something really special for our hometown fans that were there for us since the beginning? the club days," states Nuno. "It was the last night of the tour and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than by bringing it back to where it all started? Boston."
