25 Live

Eagle Records are delighted to announce the release on 21 October 2013 of Morrissey "25 Live" on DVD, Blu-ray and Visual Digital Formats [Cat Nos. EREDV999, ERBRD5201 and EVD1086 respectively]. "25 Live" is a legacy concert film marking 25 years of the solo career of one of the world's most iconic and enigmatic performers. This is the first Morrissey live concert video for 9 years and features classic tracks from across his career including "You Have Killed Me," "Let Me Kiss You," "Everyday Is Like Sunday," "Meat Is Murder," "Irish Blood, English Heart," "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris," "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side," "Alma Matters" and many more.

Shot during Morrissey's most intimate gig in decades at the Hollywood High School in Los Angeles on 2 March 2013, the film opens with fans talking about their unwavering devotion to the singer and the unique appeal of this unusual venue ? a striking contrast to the sold out arena concert at the Staples Center on the previous night. Tickets to the concert in the 1,800-seater school auditorium had sold out in 12 seconds and this now legendary concert became Morrissey's penultimate performance on the US Tour.

Bonus features on "25 Live" include four exclusive tracks recorded in a studio session: "The Kid's A Looker;" "Scandinavia;" "Action Is My Middle Name" and "People Are The Same Everywhere". There's also a mini feature shot "Behind The Scenes At Hollywood High" plus also a segment entitled "Grissle Bandage Present Lord Mudslide" which features Russell Brand's introduction to the Hollywood High School show.
