Roy Orbison: The Last Concert-Front Row Theater in Ohio 1988 (CD+DVD) 2013 Release Date: 12/3/2013
Deluxe CD/DVD release. On December 4, 1988, Orbison and his band took the stage at the Front Row Theater in Ohio, delivering a powerful set packed with classic hits. It is this electrifying performance that makes up the CD portion of the Last Concert: 25th Anniversary Edition. Roy tackles 'Only the Lonely, ' 'In Dreams, ' 'Blue Bayou, ' 'Ooby Dooby' and 'Oh, Pretty Woman' with the fire of a man half his age.
It makes the reality of history - that two days later, Roy died of a heart attack at the too-young age of 52 - all the more stunning. The Last Concert: 25th Anniversary Edition also features rare and unreleased video footage that further showcases this thrilling period of Roy's career. In addition to a stunning photo gallery from Roy's final concert and a rare 11-minute one-on-one interview with the Big O, the Last Concert's DVD includes selections from two rare live sets, from the Reseda Country Club, California, in 1981 and Rockefeller Hall in Texas, 1986.
