EXTREME - Take Us Alive Dvd

The Take Us Alive concert DVD and audio CD, was recorded at the House of Blues August 8th 2009 in Extreme’s hometown of Boston, MA. “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.”

The concert showcases material from the majestic new album as well as classics from discs like 1990’s multi-platinum, Pornograffitti, 1992’s critically acclaimed III Sides to Every Story, a surprise medley from Extreme’ debut record and the mood-setting “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know” off of 1995’s Waiting For the Punchline.”

There are beautiful moments on the DVD/CD, like on the piano-steered, atmospheric “Ghost,” which exhibits Extreme’s broad stylistic abilities. As well as multiple passionate audience participations like on their #1 hit “More Than Words” and the top 5 “Hole Hearted.” The crowd’s enthusiasm highlights the loyal support their fan base has had for this beloved foursome.

There is a blistering rendition of the Zeppelin-minded “Comfortably Dumb” the scorching “Play with Me” and the funked-up “Cupid’s Dead.” Other highlights include the anthemic “Get The Funk Out” as well as the crowd favorite “Decadence Dance”. Equally hypnotic and undeniably great, “Take Us Alive” incorporates a thumping country blues approach with Gary’s exceptional vocal performance and Nuno’s breathtaking guitar picking.

“As much as we enjoy recording, for me, I’ve always loved playing live for the fans,” Cherone says. “We couldn’t wait to get out there and play for our fans.”

Nuno explains. “Recording Saudades (de Rock) was a great experience but we were really looking forward to getting out on tour, putting on a show. That’s really where the band shines. This live DVD and CD is a culmination of all the years we played together and the chemistry the four of us put out live.”

The DVD will contain 4 unreleased bonus videos from their latest record Saudades de Rock. Videos include the songs “King of the Ladies”, “Interface”, “Run” and “Ghost.” The videos were produced by Nuno Bettencourt. The 2CD set includes the exclusive bonus track “Ghost”.
