Cheap Tricks ‘At Budokan’ On DVD For The First Time


November 26, 2008

Cheap Trick’s legendary live album and film ‘At Budokan’ will get a special screening at theatres across the USA on Thursday, December 4.

The full 60 minute film has only been shown once on Japanese television in 1978 and has never been released on DVD.

But just in case you don’t get the chance to check it out at the cinema, there is still good news! The album will be reissued on DVD with three CDs as well as a 180gsm vinyl pressing.

The four disc set includes, aside from the original full length concert film, a CD that replicates the audio of the DVD, produced by Jack Douglas and Jay Messina and the original double disc Live LP on the remaining two discs that have been newly remastered.
