Having performed together for over 14 years together, releasing five full-length studio albums, with numerous sold-out shows around the country, the biggest bucket list item that Alter Bridge have recently performed were two sold-out shows at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall. The band was backed by the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra led by conductor Simon Dobson. These shows were captured in the upcoming Napalm Records worldwide release Live At The Royal Hall out on Sept. 7.
“I think out of all the years of doing this [music], this experience is the top two or three highlights without a doubt. It’s something that none of us are going to forgot,” explains Myles Kennedy in a recently released trailer that can be seen here:
Live At The Royal Albert Hall features 21 songs, including some of Alter Bridge’s biggest hits, including fan favorites, with a couple of rarities, including “Words Darker Than Their Wings,” which the band has never played live previously. The pre-order for the release is live and fans can order various audio and video configurations including Blu-Ray, DVD, CD and vinyl, with other unique bundles with exclusive content.
Songs like “Before Tomorrow Comes,” “Ghost Of Days Gone By,” “The Last Hero,” and “Broken Wings” all find new life with the unique arrangements presented by Dobson and the Parallax Orchestra performing alongside the band.
