Eagle Rock Entertainment has announce that it will release on Blu-ray Peter Frampton: Live In Detroit. Filmed in high definition at the Pine Knob Amphitheatre on July 17, 1999 and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, the show will be available to purchase online and in stores across the nation on March 26th.
The DVD of Peter Frampton: Live In Detroit, originally produced in 2000, has been touted as a fan favorite. Supported by one of his most classic bands -- John Regan (bass), Chad Cromwell (drums), and the late Bob Mayo on keyboards Ė this Grammy Award winning guitarist/recording artist presents two hours of gems culled from his extensive career. "Baby, I Love Your Way," "Do You Feel Like We Do," "Show Me The Way," "Somethin's Happening," "(I'll Give You) Money," and many more are all brilliantly on display here.
Additionally, Live In Detroit includes a bonus interview with Peter Frampton and previously unseen rehearsal footage of "Boot It Up," from the recent "FCA! 35" tour.

Glad to see they're getting around to releasing more of their classic dvds on BD. Most of the best concerts on home video are, sadly, still SD only. Seems like every time I'm in the mood for a concert I'm always torn between watching a newer concert that isn't as energetic, legendary, or where the band doesn't quite mesh like they once did - sometimes because of missing performers - but is in HD with lossless sound, or watch a more epic performance, but one that's only in 480i with comparatively harsh and muddy DD audio.
I'm looking forward to getting this on BD. After seeing the concert broadcast in HD - years before BD came to market - watching my copy on DVD just wasn't the same anymore, so I sold it; though, I've often missed it ever since.
This is apparently from the original DVD copy, and if is, it's well worth a purchase. I'm not positive, but I believe Frampton was on tour with REO Speedwagon, and either opened, or closed the show. The DVD is long OOP, so it's cool that fans get a 2nd chance to own it, especially in HD.
