Blue Road: Live at Massey Hall

October 6, 2008

SM000055Earlier this year, at the end of February, Blue Rodeo played three wonderful shows at Massey Hall in Toronto, ON.  For those of you lucky enough to be there on those bone-chillingly cold winter nights, you witnessed the guys warming the hometown crowd with a couple of hours of classic Blue Rodeo.

On October 28, Blue Rodeo will release Blue Road, a live recording of select songs from those performances.  In fact, it’s the first ten songs of the night, all performed acoustically. Track list includes “Try”, “5 Days in May”, “Rebel”, “Bad Timing” and more.

But that’s not all!  Blue Road also has an accompanying DVD – Live at Massey Hall Bootleg.  Those ten songs were captured and are presented on this DVD for you to relive those nights.

Would you like more? How about a documentary by Juno-winning video director, Christopher Mills.  See behind-the-scenes outtakes in Greg’s home studio and the guys performing a handful of cover songs, “in the round”.

We’ll have a presale for you right here at coming up very soon, and will have a little something extra for those that purchase the CD/DVD.  All the details will be released in a couple of days so watch the news section, subscribe to the newsletter, and get on the Boards – make sure you don’t miss this great sale!
