‘Live at Knebworth’ Brings Historic 1990 Concert to Blu-ray
On June 30, 1990, an amazing assortment of British rock legends shared the Knebworth stage, including Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, Elton John, Phil Collins, Genesis and Dire Straits -- and on March 17, the show that's been called "the best British concert of all time" will make its belated Blu-ray debut.
Among the show's many highlights was a heavily rumored appearance by Jimmy Page during Plant's set, which Plant later joked was a sort of make-up effort for the widely panned Led Zeppelin reunion set at Live Aid five years earlier. "At Live Aid, Zeppelin sounded like a set of rabbit's bones rattling," Plant said after their performance. "But working with Pagey in my band today was great. No top of the bill, just a lot of heart."
The show has long been available on CD and DVD, but the new version promises "the best possible quality" by offering upscaled standard-def footage with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio. The set won't be available for pre-order until February, but Eagle Rock Entertainment is advertising a list price of $17.98 for the disc. Check out some footage from Knebworth '90 above and the track listing below.
