Rock And Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary 3-disc DVD set out Nov 3rd

Music News | By on Oct 21st, 2009

This Fall, Time Life commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame with an unprecedented, comprehensive collection of performances compiled from a quarter century of induction celebrations. The ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME LIVE 3-DVD collection boasts 44 remarkable performances by the most influential and significant figures in rock music history, as well as the speeches, toasts and roasts by which these members of rock royalty salute each others’ accomplishments. History is made when legendary artists such as Mick Jagger and Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen and Bono, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Tom Petty, take the stage for once-in-a-lifetime collaborations. The ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME LIVE set includes three DVDs featuring an assortment of performances spanning more than two decades of ceremonies, as well as induction and acceptance speeches, and never-before-seen backstage and rehearsal footage. Never before available, the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME LIVE DVD set is an unparalleled rock ‘n’ roll experience – nearly ten hours of rare and exclusive performances and footage – and a must-own for every music fan.

Among the highlights of the collection, available on November 3, are:

· Bruce Springsteen and Bono sharing a microphone on U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
· Mick Jagger and Tina Turner performing a sultry duet on the Stones’ “Honky Tonk Woman.”
· An all-star tribute to George Harrison with Tom Petty, Steve Winwood and Jeff Lynne performing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” culminating in an electrifying guitar solo by Prince.
· The original 3 members of Cream taking the stage for the first time in 25 years for a blistering 3-song set of the group’s biggest hits.
· A jaw-dropping version of the Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There” with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, John Fogerty, Mick Jagger and Billy Joel.

Plus, the collection boasts classic performances by The Who, Aerosmith, AC/DC, John Fogerty, John Mellencamp and many, many others.

Also included in the deluxe DVD set are 255 minutes of bonus material, including behind-the-scenes and rehearsal footage, as well as candid induction and acceptance speeches.

Each year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honors rock music’s pioneering figures during prestigious, black-tie ceremonies. Rock’s biggest stars induct their biggest influences and contemporaries, with heartfelt, wise and witty speeches. Over the years, Paul McCartney has inducted John Lennon, Paul Simon has inducted Stevie Wonder, Steven Tyler has inducted AC/DC, Elton John has inducted The Beach Boys, and in turn, Elton John was inducted by Axl Rose. But, it’s during the live performance part of the ceremony when rock history is really made.

With egos set aside, the artists take the stage and deliver once-in-a-lifetime performances, often with a truly mind-blowing combination of talent, such as Mick Jagger performing with Bruce Springsteen, REM with Eddie Vedder, The Band with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck with Jimmy Page. As Robbie Robertson once commented, “It’s an opportunity to see musical combinations we may never see again as long as we live.”

The Rock and Roll of Fame Foundation and Museum’s anniversary celebration will extend beyond the DVD set, with both a book and two groundbreaking concerts this fall. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: The First 25 Years, chronicling 25 years of induction ceremonies, will be published by Collins Design (an imprint of HarperCollins) in September. In October, the Hall of Fame will present two live concert events at Madison Square Garden in New York, featuring performances by Eric Clapton, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Aretha Franklin, Metallica, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Stevie Wonder, and U2.

Finally, starting November 28th PBS will air a one-hour Rock And Roll Hall of Fame special, hosted by Paul Shaffer
