Fans of power rockers ALTER BRIDGE rushed to “beat the street” online this week and make LIVE AT WEMBLEY, the band’s second live CD/DVD – and the first live concert DVD from The Dude Films – hit #2 in the Top 100 on the Blu Ray Music Videos & Concerts chart at, just beneath Adele. For the seventh day in a row, LIVE AT WEMBLEY, with a street date of March 26, 2012, has been in the Top 10 of Amazon Bestsellers in the Blu Ray Music Videos & Concerts chart, ahead of video offerings from other music giants in the Top 10 such as Iron Maiden, Whitney Houston and Tony Bennett. The title has consistently picked up sales and momentum since it was initially posted on Amazon over a week ago, showing the incredibly true loyalty and love of Alter Bridge fans.

The band’s previous live CD/DVD, LIVE FROM AMSTERDAM (2009), broke records at Amazon, rising 15,000 spots in one day to capture the #1 position. The package was very well received and garnered 4- and 5-star reviews across the board.

LIVE AT WEMBLEY, distributed in North America through EMI Label Services, includes every key Alter Bridge track from their three studio albums, including “Isolation,” “Ghosts Of Days Gone By,” “Wonderful Life,” “Watch Over You,” “Broken Wings,” “Rise Today,” “Open Your Eyes” and many more, and was captured in late November during the Fall 2011 European tour at the historic Wembley Arena.

“When the tour was booked, we saw that there were a few arenas, Wembley being one of them,” says lead guitar player Mark Tremonti. “We were excited and nervous, wondering if the tickets would sell. They did, and we were blown away. The first four or five songs of any set are usually pretty nerve-wracking. Those are the tunes where we're finding our footing and trying to get comfortable. But Wembley was different. Even with all of the cameras and the fact that we were filming and we couldn't make any mistakes, it was fun right from the start.”
Directed by long time Alter Bridge Director Daniel E. Catullo III (Rush, Nickelback, Smashing Pumpkins, Godsmack) and produced by Catullo and Lionel Pasamonte, the 16-camera, state-of-the-art high definition shoot was filmed in front of a fanatical audience of over 10,000 English fans as the band gave the performance of a lifetime, captured in pristine audio visual perfection, in 5.1 DTS Surround Sound, at Wembley Arena in London. The Deluxe Edition of the DVD is set to include a second bonus disc of content shot specifically for this release, plus a 60-minute documentary called “The Road To Wembley” and photo gallery, and 16-page souvenir booklet.

In addition to the main HD shoot, the show was shot in 3D using 3Ality Technica technology and cameras. The 3D version will be released in late 2012 as a separate 3D film/3D Blu Ray package by 3Dimensions, Inc. The 3D production was produced by Catullo and Pasamonte, along with Ted Kenney, Producer/ Director of such iconic 3D Concert Films as U23D, Kenney Chesney: Summer in 3D, Black Eyed Peas in 3D and Britney Spears in 3D.
