Live DVD celebrating Extreme’s Pornograffitti set for release


Loud And Proud Records have confirmed they’ll release a live package celebrating Extreme’s Pornograffitti album later this year.

Titled Pornograffitti Live 25/Metal Meltdown, it’ll include a DVD, Blu-ray and audio CD recorded at the band’s show at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino on May 30, 2015, where they performed the record in full. It’s set for release on September 23.

In addition to the live footage, which celebrated 25 years since the launch of their Pornograffitti album, the package will feature a bonus documentary that showcases the story of the band, exclusive interviews, archive footage from the 80s and a photo gallery.

A trailer can be seen below.

Singer Gary Cherone says: “It was a great thrill to perform Pornograffitti in its entirety. Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour. The album was a watershed moment in the band’s career – it’s when we came into our own and it will always be special.”

Nuno Bettencourt adds: “The band always prided itself on its live performance. Over the years, some of these songs have evolved where the band actually plays them better now than when we had recorded them. Hope you enjoy it.”

Extreme will head out on the road again next month for a run of shows in Europe and the Far East.
