Live At Massey Hall

Recommended Posts

Sort of a pre-announcement. On his blog Matt announced that there would be an announcement concerning the release of a live record. I don't know about you guys, but I'm thrilled to learn that it's actually happening.

I hope it's released in the next couple months. I have no clue what kind of a process this has to go through, but if he isn't polishing it up then I can't imagine it taking too much longer.

hmmm, he says he will be releasing a limited double c.d. version. What will the other disk be? I say an acoustic ep album or his acoustic set from Massey hall?

Mmm...I'd wait for the CD over an Itunes release.

There is an ad in this month's Exclaim that says it's coming out in the fall. If they bought ad space, it has to be true! Right...?

It's probably the concert split up into two discs, because from what I read of it here on the Bored, it was about 2 hours long.

i'm sure the show will have to be a double disc album because of length. i'm excited. i just hope it hits iTunes U.S. and not just Canada.

 

regarding the ad... can someone scan it or somethin?

Given the support that Apple has given Matt in bringing his back catalogue to the US iTunes store, I'd say it's a good bet the live album will show up there as well.

I hope the disc has something extra included because I will then purchase that as well. Maybe a Rooms part 2?

so let me get this straight, there is a limited edition release, one disk is live with the full band? the other could be live acoustic?

There are no official details regarding the physical release, we are all just speculating.

 

I really think the 2 disc release will be the concert split up onto two discs. Seeing as CDs can only actually store about 79 minutes of music before you run into difficulties (read about Metallica's Load album and how they had to cut parts of songs to fit them all on the record), it makes the most sense to split up a 2 hourish concert onto the two discs.

 

I don't think you'll see any acoustic extras on the physical release, as Matt has said that if he does an acoustic EP that it will likely be an iTunes exclusive.

A scan is unnecessary. It's a vertical half-page, and the bulk of it is an add for Hospital Music. At the very bottom it says "new album 'Live at Massey Hall' coming this fall"

He said it will be released as an iTunes exclusive first, followed by a limited double CD, I'll probably buy both.

 

Does anyone know which record label will be distributing it? Or will he release it independently?

 

 

 

edit: Wait was there seriously no Giant at the show? Wow I'm kinda disappointed lol, I thought that song was a staple of his live shows.

The setlist just posted in this thread was an acoustic show. Crusader said the one being featured in the live album is full band so...uhh...yeah.

That set list is from the first Massey show, which was solo-acoustic. The second show was full band and opened with the best version of Champions of Nothing that I've ever heard. To my recollection, Giant was played.

 

The show was incredible.
