Sheryl Crow is many, many miles from Memphis! Probably several thousand of 'em at this point. That said, the singer will release Miles from Memphis Live at the Pantages Theatre tomorrow. It's a DVD featuring 18-songs in high definition, DTS 5.1 Surround Sound! The two-hour+ release captures a standout show at this pristine art deco Hollywood venue, so whether you love Crow and have seen dozens of her shows or have never seen her at all, this DVD is a "must own" for Crow lovers.
Filmed in the Fall of 2010, the show captures the talented singer/songwriter while touring in support of her 100 Miles From Memphis album (the title of which is a reference to where she grew up in Missouri) and fronting a powerhouse nine-piece band that swings through the best tracks from the record and reinvigorates fan favorites with a soulful Memphis flavor. And there's a little Motown in the mix too, with Crow's 1994 megahit "All I Wanna Do" extended with a jam on Marvin Gaye's classic "Got to Give It Up," as well as a joyous rendition of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back."
Opened in 1930, the Pantages Theatre is an art-deco masterpiece. Howard Hughes once owned the venue, which hosted the Academy Awards from 1949-1959. This glamorous Hollywood treasure provides a stunning backdrop for Crow and her band, The Thieves. "It was a very special night, playing with this incredible band in this wonderful venue, and I'm so happy to be able to share it with all my fans around the world," said Sheryl Crow.
Bonus material includes a special behind-the-scenes feature of Crow and her band, and a soundcheck of two songs: "Eye to Eye" and "Stop," which were not in the main show.
