Black Stone Cherry are streaming the audio from two tracks from their new live DVD, Thank You: Livin’ Live. Recorded on the band’s Magic Mountain tour at Birmingham’s LG Arena in 2014, it’s the band’s first live release, and is out today.
“We are beyond excited to bring you all this live DVD,” says guitarist Ben Wells. “Growing up watching my Elvis and Aerosmith DVDs and VHS tapes, I never thought I would be in a band that would one day be releasing one - and in an arena at that! We are so honoured, humbled, and thankful to have the fans and friends we have in this business and we couldn’t do it without the grace of God and all of your support! Sit back and enjoy this live BSC experience. We had a blast filming it!”
Frontman Chris Robertson continues: “I remember our first gig headlining in Birmingham at the Barfly and I thought about that night many times as we were filming this DVD. It was truly an amazing experience that we will cherish forever and we have to give all the credit to the amazing fans for showing up and making it all possible!”
We caught up with Black Stone Cherry at the recent Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, KY, and spoke to the band’s John Fred Young and Ben Wells about the DVD.
