Red Hot Chilli Peppers Live at Slane Castle
Warner Music Vision have announced the UK Region 2-6 DVD release of Red Hot Chilli Peppers 'Live At Slane Castle' for 17th November 2003 with a retail price of £19.99. This DVD captures the Red Hot Chilli Peppers live at Dublin's illustrious Slane Castle where they performed earlier this year on 23rd August to a sell-out crowd of over 80,000 fans.
Presented on DVD in stunning crystal clear picture (Anamorphic Widescreen) and a choice of audio settings including Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, and Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround Sound, 'Live at Slane Castle' also contains an exclusive screensaver which fans can save to their desktops, when watching the DVD on their PC.
This high-definition production transforms a milestone event into a unique experience and takes music DVD to a new level. In addition to a broad range of moods and looks developed in the show, key moments of the band's kinetic performance are captured in what has come to be known as 'time-slice' - a technique heavily exploited in music promo clips and films like 'The Matrix', but never successfully achieved before in a live event situation.
Also featured on the DVD are six animated sequences which are back-projected on the screens during the show. These can be selected individually as visual alternatives to the live performances of those tracks, or as a silent TV screensaver on a continuous loop - another innovative feature of this DVD presentation.
