Helloween to release live album and DVD/Blu-ray
Following the success of the Pumpkins United World Tour Helloween have announced they will release a live album and a DVD/Blu-ray, “United Alive”, from this tour. On October 4th we can transport ourselves to the tour anytime, and dive into every detail with hellish tracking shots, breathless close-ups, and intimate interviews. The artwork was created by Martin Hausler once again and offers plenty of unreleased live images.
Michael Kiske comments: “It wasn’t easy to condense this unbelievable tour adequately and capture it how it felt for us – that’s why we had the idea to film the biggest festival gig, the most massive arena show, and the hottest club date.”
The DVD/Blu-ray nails the tour with recordings from Wacken in front of 75,000 metal heads and 14,000 fans in the Madrid arena – and as a bonus, the show in the Espaço das Américas, gathering 8,000 in São Paulo. Altogether it offers over three hours of live material in stereo and premium 5.1 surround sound, plus backstage material, tons of surprises, and a very personal band interview about the past, present, and future. The Live-CD/Vinyl presents a whopping 2 hours 20 of pure audio material from the concert in Madrid plus four bonus tracks from the shows in Prague, São Paulo, Wacken, and Santiago de Chile.
