Previous G3 concert DVD releases have been certified gold sellers. A 5.1 theatrical mix was created especially for this event.
These movie theater screenings will mark a release event for the concert DVD, which will arrive in retail stores the same day. The DVD will be available for purchase at each cinema screening the film. "Live In Tokyo" will be presented in theaters in high definition and employ Dolby 5.1 Digital Surround Sound to enhance the audience experience.
"We are delighted to work directly with Epic Records and our theater partners to deliver the G3 concert and create an Event for the DVD's release," said Michael J. St. Clair, president of Pillar Entertainment. "With the technically proficient nature of these guitarists, it makes perfect sense to have their material presented in cinema grade high definition with a 5.1 theatrical mix created especially for this event."
