Back on August 2nd of this year, Railroad Earth rolled up on Red Rocks amphitheater, just outside of Denver, for a return performance from a triumphant show in July of 2013. What transpired was nothing short of amazing- a transcendent evening of music with the band giving fans 3 hours worth of RRE classics that not only involved the group’s 6 members, but a horn section, to boot, (dubbed that very night as “the Mile High Horns”)!
For those who did not have the chance to get out to Denver, and of course, for those fans who would love to relive the night of music, Railroad Earth are happy to announce the forthcoming DVD release: RAILROAD EARTH: LIVE AT RED ROCKS, the band’s first DVD offering, ever!
LIVE AT RED ROCKS will give viewers VIP seats and a pure experience of the evening- just the show, with no interruptions, interspersed footage, unwanted narrative. backstage chatter or parking lot jabber. Just the concert, as it was.
Boasting brilliant production quality, RRE partnered with Colorado’s own NoCoast Productions, with audio mixed by Jon Altschiller (Phish, Dave Matthews).
RAILROAD EARTH: LIVE AT RED ROCKS will be released officially on 1/21/15, but starting today and until that date, we are offering the DVD for a discounted price and the added bonus of an MP3 download of the show, newly remixed and remastered. See http://www.liverailroadearth.com for more information and to place your pre order. Shortly afterwards, the DVD will be available at Amazon.com, as well as selected stores nationwide.
The RED ROCKS set list is a healthy span Railroad Earth’s 13 year, 7 album career, of course, including band’s latest album, the masterful Last Of The Outlaws, tagged by RELIX as what “may become Railroad Earth’s identifying recording—the moment where they laugh in the faces of the critics who’ve lazily dubbed them the ‘folk-pop-Celtic-bluegrass-roots-and-rock act from Jersey.’”
