Live in Australia DVD/CD

  • Anyone have the DVD Yet? Is it out yet and how is it?
    Amazon indicates it is released. Is the region American friendly?
    I would imagine it is, right?
    Oh, and hi everyone!
    ....Drew K. :)

  • Anyone have the DVD Yet? Is it out yet and how is it?

    Still waiting Drew :( Although I'm hoping my order will show up this week. The edition for sale through the USA Amazon.com is the NTSC/USA version, so you'll be safe getting it from there. Obviously it'll be available for all regions, so it'll be dependent where you order from to get the right one. But there's no doubt a region free release is out there, just a case of finding it :)

  • The DVD is still not listed on Amazon in the UK as being available in the near future, does any one know the likely release date for UK and Europe. Hopefully sometime before Christmas!

    Can any one lucky enough to own it, please give a quick review.

  • The CD and DVD have just been put out on www.cdon.com and the release date is set to November 26th!!!

    I don't know if is this a special date for Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland...

    Best,
    :rolleyes: Krister

  • Since the Euro is very strong at the moment, I have now ordered the DVD via the GHPG shop ;) at amazon.com
    Ordered the CD from an eBay seller in the US - again, because of the strong Euro.
    See what happens... I'll keep you updated.

    Later,
    Christian

  • OK, have an update for you all.

    The DVD will be available in all territories (excluding Europe) in a matter of days - NTSC and PAL all regions formats; PAL was sent to distributors last week and the NTSC edition within the next 7 days (which explains the delay at USA based retailers such as Amazon.com etc).

    EDEL (Euro distributor) will be releasing the CD and DVD in Europe from mid-November.

  • Alrighty then :D Got my CD edition today - each song sounds enormous, despite the acoustic format :thumbup: For all those who were gagging for "acoustic Glenn", you'll be in 7th heaven with this release!

    JJ Marsh and Lachlan Doley are in fine form too and the string quartet add that extra special element to songs, such as Frail, This Is How I Feel and The Divine to name just a couple :cool:

    It's a real fun album - you can feel just how much both Glenn and the audience are enjoying themselves :claphands

    Attached are the covers, since they haven't appeared yet that I am aware of - they should help you in tracking it down in your local record store :singer:

    Hopefully the DVD will show up on the doorstep next week sometime...

  • Don't hold your breath for the DVD to arrive next week - I got a message from Amazon yesterday saying the release had been pushed back to December! :huh:

    In related news, I received my 'Live in Australia' CD today in the mail. For the most part, it's a welcome twist to some of Glenn's material to have the songs performed acoustically, with strings and all. At the same time, I think Big Daddy should have reined in his performances a bit on songs like "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Nights in White Satin". They're a bit much at times, and would have been more effective if sung more in line with the spirit of the acoustic show.

    The liners and photos are very nice, and the overall performance is quite good. I'm anxious to see what I think of the performance when experienced sonically and visually on the DVD.

    Thoughts?

    Cheers...Todd

  • Hmm...interesting. I just placed my order of the DVD and the notice said it was expected to be shipped sometime during the week of the 15th....this month :confused:

    Guys, see my post above ;)

  • Something isn't right, then...I ordered mine through GHPG - why would I get an email directly from Amazon telling me my DVD would not be shipping until December? :huh:

    Hello from Amazon.com.

    We're writing about the order you placed on September 05 2007 14:09 PDT.
    Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below has
    changed, and we need to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date:

    Glenn Hughes (Actor) "Live in Australia" [DVD]
    Estimated arrival date: 12/05/2007 - 12/06/2007

    I guess I'll just watch the mailbox, and hope for the best.

  • Well you know retailers.....sometimes they're right and sometimes they're not :) Amazon are notorious for flipping dates back and forth. It could also be they've taken customer orders for more than they ordered from the distributor and now they find it's going to take that amount of extra time to get additional copies in stock.

    So it could be a myriad of reasons, but from a distributor standpoint, what I posted is correct :D Of course, we the customer, get screwed, but hey, what's new :p

    I'll let you know when mine comes through the letterbox....please do the same :singer:

  • Hi David

    Thanks for the update.

    Can you confirm that all the tracks are from the Basement set on 17th June '06 ? - I base the question on the fact the cover just says 'Live in Australia' & of course he played an acoustic set the next night in Melbourne.

    I also see 'This House' was dropped from the CD but was on the Sydney set list.

    Amazon UK has a reference to it,with a 4-6 week delivery,available on import:

    Ha,I've just found this link re the DVD at CDxpress in the UK.I've used them in the past but not for some while.Seems like it's been available to PAL/NTSC/All Regions users since 3rd Sep(?!):

    I haven't followed the order process all the way through yet so may be presented with a 'delay' message come checkout time.
