Velvet Revolver “Live In Houston” DVD

Velvet Revolver

Live In Houston

On 15 November 2010, Eagle Rock Entertainment release the first ever Velvet Revolver live DVD release “Live In Houston” on DVD [Cat. No. EREDV825].   This concert features the full original line-up with Scott Weiland on vocals before his return to the Stone Temple Pilots and includes Velvet Revolver’s huge hit singles “Slither” and “Fall To Pieces” as well as the Guns ‘n’ Roses tracks “It’s So Easy” and “Used To Love Her” and the Stone Temple Pilots songs “Crackerman” and “Sex Type Thing”.

This concert was filmed in Houston, Texas in 2005 during the tour in support of their bestselling and Grammy Award winning debut album “Contraband”. The full length live tracks are intercut with snippets of interview with the various band members talking about how Velvet Revolver came into being. The set list naturally focuses on that debut release but is complimented by two tracks from the Guns ‘n’ Roses catalogue and two tracks from Stone Temple Pilots’ debut album highlighting the history of the band members. Velvet Revolver prove themselves once again to be an outstanding live band and are on great form in front of a typically enthusiastic Texan crowd.

The line-up featured on “Live In Houston” is Scott Weiland (lead vocals), Slash (lead guitars), Duff McKagan (bass, vocals), Matt Sorum (drums, vocals), Dave Kushner (rhythm guitar).  Velvet Revolver was unquestionably a supergroup but, perhaps unusually, they were far more than the sum of their parts and were even described as “the best rock and roll band left on the planet”,  by none other than Sammy Hagar.  “Live In Houston” shows just how good they were.
