Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

Postby jarkko » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:09 pm

Tony Palmer - director of the "Bird on a Wire" documentary film - was sorting out his archive the other day and came across some unmarked cans of film, and guess what?
They are the vidtronics (i.e. black and white film transfers) of the Stockholm and Albert Hall concerts of the 1972 famous tour. Now he has been working on the original tapes, and we are going to see the results in September this year:

It was only a few days ago that I watched the “Bird on the Wire”movie (again). The atmosphere of the movie and the live performances still are mesmerizing. This should be a very interesting DVD!
