According to The Pulse of Radio, ALTER BRIDGE will release two different versions of an upcoming concert DVD titled "Live In Amsterdam". The first version will be released on August 4 and will be a single-disc set sold exclusively at dates on this summer's CREED reunion tour. A second edition is tentatively scheduled to arrive on September 22 and will expand to a two-disc collection, with the full concert accompanied by a 60-plus-minute documentary, a photo gallery and other content. This version will be sold everywhere and will also be available as a Blu-ray disc.
ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips all play in CREED, which announced its reunion after a five-year hiatus earlier this spring.
Tremonti told The Pulse of Radio that CREED's activities will have no effect on ALTER BRIDGE's output or future plans. "In the ALTER BRIDGE camp, it's business as usual. We've got a record coming out. Nobody's getting any less. If they're a fan of one thing, they're gonna get that. If they're a fan of both, they're gonna get double. You know, it's — nobody's gonna get gypped on any side of the fence."
CREED is now recording its first studio album since 2001 and will begin its comeback tour on August 6 in Pittsburgh. A report earlier this week at industry news site Hits Daily Double indicated that tickets for the trek are selling far below expectations.
ALTER BRIDGE, which also features singer Myles Kennedy, has issued two studio albums so far, including 2007's "Blackbird".
