Live At Knebworth SD Blu-ray, featuring Pink Floyd et alMarking the 25th anniversary of the show, Eagle Rock Entertainment are releasing the Live at Knebworth concert film on SD Blu-ray on March 16th, 2015. Their SD Blu-ray range presents upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound for the best possible quality, so should show the recording off the best it has ever been.

As background, for our younger readers, on June 30th 1990 in the grounds of Knebworth House, in Hertfordshire, England, a concert was staged to raise funds for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and the Brit School For Performing Arts. It has since been heralded as one of the best British rock concerts of all time. The incredible line-up was drawn entirely from acts who had been recipients of the prestigious Silver Clef Award presented annually by Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy for outstanding services to the British Music Industry: Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Robert Plant (with guest, Jimmy Page), Elton John, Phil Collins, Genesis, Dire Straits, Tears For Fears, Cliff Richard and The Shadows, and Status Quo.

All the artists gave their time and performances for free in order to support the charity and this SD Blu-ray edition will continue to raise funds so that they can continue their invaluable work.

The Blu-ray, which has no region coding, so playable on equipment across the world, has a running time of around 180 minutes, and comes with DTS-HD Master Audio and LPCM Stereo soundtracks. The tracklisting is as follows:

    TEARS FOR FEARS: 1) Change 2) Badman's Song 3) Everybody Wants To Rule The World / CLIFF RICHARD & THE SHADOWS: 4) On The Beach 5) Good Golly Miss Molly 6) We Don't Talk Anymore / PHIL COLLINS & THE SERIOUS BAND: 7) In The Air Tonight 8) Sussudio / PAUL MCCARTNEY: 9) Coming Up 10) Birthday 11) Hey Jude 12) Can't Buy Me Love / STATUS QUO: 13) Whatever You Want 14) Rockin' All Over The World 15) Dirty Water 16) In The Army Now / ERIC CLAPTON: 17) Before You Accuse Me 18) Tearin' Us Apart / DIRE STRAITS: 19) Solid Rock 20) Think I Love You Too Much 21) Money For Nothing / ELTON JOHN: 22) Sacrifice 23) Sad Songs (Say So Much) / ROBERT PLANT: 24) Hurting Kind 25) Tall Cool One 26) Wearing And Tearing (with Jimmy Page) 27) Rock And Roll (with Jimmy Page) / GENESIS: 28) Mama 29) Throwing It All Away 30) Turn It On Again Medley: Turn It On Again / Somebody To Love / Reach Out, I'll Be There / Pinball Wizard / In The Midnight Hour / Turn It On Again (reprise) / PINK FLOYD: 31) Shine On You Crazy Diamond 32) Run Like Hell
