Rounder has announced a March 11 release for Steve Martin’s first ever live concert CD/DVD. It bears the unwieldy title, Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell Live.
Recorded at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside, CA last Fall, the package includes the live 2 hour program on both DVD and CD. Familiar numbers from Steve’s multiple albums with The Steeps and Edie are included, along with comedy bits and four previously unreleased songs.
Pre-orders are enabled now at Amazon.
The whole gang starts a Spring/Summer tour on March 14 in support, running across much of the United States and Canada. Select dates in April include Martin Short in for Brickell.
Tour details can be found on Martin’s web site.
Here’s the trailer released today…
The live concert will also be broadcast in March on Great Performances on PBS affiliate stations. The program typically airs on Sunday nights. Check local listings for broadcast times in your area.
