Hello Alter Bridge Nation,
Te band spoke to their Director, Dan Catullo, last night to get an update on the status of the live DVD. The bad news is that the legal issues with Universal regarding the retail distribution delay have not been resolved. This is infuriating. However, the managers are working hard to right this obvious wrong but they do not have a clear idea, right now, on when a worldwide retail release will happen. It could be delayed until next year.
That being said, the band think it would be a crime to make the loyal fans wait any longer to see this concert so they are working hard to make the DVD available online as quick as they can. The version they are selling online is the FULL concert with all the songs played that night in Amsterdam.
The good news is that the USA and Canada fans can purchase Alter Bridge - Live in Amsterdam…. RIGHT NOW!
The band know that on Amazon it says “Usually ships between 1 and 2 months”. THIS IS INCORRECT! The director told the band last night they shipped out thousands of DVD’s in the past few days and he assures them that the “1 to 2 months” wording will be changed to “Now Shipping” as soon as possible. It just takes time for Amazon to update as it has to go through the legal department. So, if you are in the USA or Canada you can order now by using the following link…
UK and and European Fans - The director has told the band tons of DVD’s in the PAL format have been shipped to amazon.co.uk
to be sold ASAP! The amazon UK will not put up a listing of the product until they receive it so keep checking that site often as it could go up any day now.
To the other fans worldwide, not included in the areas above… please be patient. If they can not get it out to your country, they should have it up for digital download in the upcoming weeks which should work for everybody. We’ll post another blog when the band have more info on that.
Again, the band are very sorry for all the confusion and they hope this will keep all you loyal fans satisfied until they can finally get the deluxe retail version out for sale. It WILL happen at some point but they are sick and tired of waiting and they really want to share this DVD concert experience with you as they are very proud of it and they hope you have as much fun watching it asthe band did playing the show.
