Transatlantic Releasing 5 Disc Package
Here is the background Glass Onyon sent over: First came the news that Transatlantic had returned with a new studio album. The Whirlwind was their best-received album to date. For true fans, though, the more tantalizing prize was the prospect of live shows. Band and fans alike were rewarded with a month-long tour, and an initial live release. But audiences reported seeing cameras and recording gear at other shows. Indeed, the best was yet to come.
"When you're on tour, sometimes you have the best gigs when the cameras aren't running," enthuses Neal Morse (Keyboards, Vocals). "Such was the case one night in Manchester." It was the final show of the tour, and the band was at their best. One last show to let go and unleash it all. Who knows if they'd ever get to do it again? And while video wasn't rolling, audio was - and when the final echoes faded, the beast had been caged.
But more never is enough. The sold-out Tilburg show was an unforgettable night the venue always a favorite for DVD recordings. Seven camera operators were there to prove it. "I'll never forget it," Morse confides. "I feel like the Tilburg gig was among the best concerts I've ever played in my whole life."
The decision to shoot two concerts for commercial release is a rarity. But fans had waited nearly 10 years, and the band wasn't about to let them down. And a year later, they're true to their word. While the first DVD release was the safer of the two, this one goes all out.
Extras? You didn't think you'd get away without candid moments, sound check antics, Mike stage-diving, did you? Or the elusive (genuine) encore for an audience that won't go home? (The band had nothing rehearsed to play, so out came "Return of the Giant Hogweed" for their first time, ever.) Like we said, definitely not the safe one.
Travel from the last decade of prog to today, and from the backstage to the soundstage. Capturing a thousand timeless moments, More Never is Enough captures musicians and audience uniting to create an electrifying musical experience. Join Transatlantic as they unleash their very bestas you've never seen, heard or imagined them.
