Guitarist Dan Wexler of the reactivated '80s hard rockers ICON will make an in-store appearance at Rockzone Records in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, June 28 at 1:00 p.m. He will be signing copies of the ICON's "1984: Live Bootleg" DVD as a copy is shown on screen through the store. He will also be on 93.3 KDKB's "Headbanger's Heaven" later that evening to discuss the live DVD and the recently reformed band's plans for the future.Originally issued on VHS in 1999 through Epilogue Entertainment, this single-camera-shot concert on "1984: Live Bootleg" is the only known document of an entire performance by the original ICON band consisting of Stephen Clifford, Dan Wexler, John Aquilino, Tracy Wallach and Pat Dixon.
With the advances in digital technology since its original release in 1999, the beta master was recently put thru a series of broadcast filters and Izotope mastering plugins. These technological advancements have produced a clearer picture and an enhanced soundtrack compared to the original release. As an added bonus, a brand new interview with Dan Wexler and John Aquilino filmed in May 2008 is included to round out this release.
Filmed during the band's first tour, the concert features songs from ICON's debut album as well as tracks from the then-yet-to-be-recorded "Night of the Crime" LP and a few cuts that to this date have yet to be released. For more information, go to this location.
