Extreme Reveals New Live CD/DVD Album "Take Us Alive" Details

Extreme is releasing their "Take Us Alive" live CD and DVD on Frontiers Records April 23rd in Europe and May 4th in the U.S. In 2008, following a 13 year hiatus, the band returned to the stage for their "Take Us Alive" world tour, which encompassed 75 cities and multiple continents in support of their new record, "Saudades de Rock."

The performance was recorded on the last night of their tour at the House of Blues August 8, 2009 in Extreme’s hometown of Boston, MA . “We wanted to do something really special for our hometown fans that were there for us since the beginning… the club days,” states guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. “It was the last night of the tour and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by bringing it back to where it all started… Boston.”

The concert showcases material from all five Extreme albums and the DVD will contain 4 unreleased bonus videos from their latest record "Saudades de Rock." Videos include the songs “King of the Ladies," “Interface," “Run,” and “Ghost.” The videos were produced by Nuno Bettencourt. “This DVD/CD is a culmination of all the years we played together and the chemistry the four of us put out live,” explains Bettencourt.

The concert track listing is as follows: Decadence Dance, Comfortably Dumb, Rest in Peace, It ('s a Monster), Star, Tell me Something I Don’t Know, Medley - Kid Ego - Little Girls -Teachers Pet, Play With Me, Midnight Express, More Than Words, Ghost, Cupid’s Dead, Take us Alive, Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee, Get the Funk Out, Am I Ever Gonna Change, Hole Hearted.

Wilco - if you could keep Gary from singing and have just the music, it would be great! Just look at how well he did with Van Halen. I rest my case.
