TOTO “LIVE AT MONTREUX 1991”

At the personal invitation of Quincy Jones and legendary Montreux Jazz Festival founder Claude Nobs to perform at the famed Swiss festival, Toto couldn’t resist the opportunity, resulting in Toto: Live At Montreux 1991. “From the perspective of the members of Toto,’ states guitarist Steve Lukather, “the Montreux Jazz Festival is amongst the most revered events staged in the world. Our association, as a band, and individuals, is something we are deeply proud of. So much fun, and so much history has graced the ground in and around the lake.”

On September 16, 2016, Eagle Rock Entertainment will present this very special concert film from Toto’s storied history. Toto: Live At Montreux 1991 the last tour with Jeff and Mike Porcaro, alongside original members Steve Lukather and David Paich  — will be available on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, and Digital Video in North America [MSRP TBA], ~SEPTEMBER 16, 2016~

In 1991, Toto was in the midst of a run of headline dates and European summer festivals, while finishing their new album Kingdom Of Desire. It was a time of rebirth for the band, and the Montreux stage proved the perfect opportunity to test drive the new songs.  Fans could feel the electricity in the air as Lukather, Paich, and the late brothers Jeff and Mike Porcaro took the stage.

“Yes! Time to take a trip in the ol’ Toto Hot Tub Time Machine! Back to 1991, yes ‘91! Where pure live music was performed on hallowed ground under the paternal wings of Quincy Jones and Claude Nobs,” states keyboardist David Paich. “When I first listened back, the thought omnipresent in my mind was simply, ‘That’s that raw, sizzling energy we had in high school!’  Here we are – four valley dudes from Los Angeles with some assorted musical friends, bringing it once again.”

Sadly, this was Jeff Porcaro’s final tour with the band, before his passing in 1992. Lukather, who personally mixed Live At Montreux 1991 with legendary engineer Niko Bolas, expresses the real emotions that this concert channels, and how poignant it was to the band’s history:

“The most important thing is you can see and hear the love we have for each other and watching this in 2016 with Niko…well bittersweet is a term that has been so overused but in this case…there were tears and a lot of laughter as the memories of this night and this final tour with Jeff were captured.  You guys get to see a version of the band that will never and COULD never be again!

Scorpions ‘Forever And A Day’

Forever And A Day tells the story of the Scorpions set within the context of their world tour which ran from 2010 to 2012 and at the time was billed as their farewell tour. It follows the Scorpions around the globe whilst both past and present band members and other key people who have worked with them across their career tell how the band started, got their early chances and then broke through to international stardom. The film chronicles how the Scorpions were often one of the first rock bands to play in many countries, especially in the Far East, Eastern Europe and Russia. It tells how they deliberately focused on making it in the USA and also how they initially struggled to reach a wider audience in their home country of Germany despite huge success in many other parts of the world. It is a fascinating story that will enthral any Scorpions fan. To compliment the documentary there is a bonus disc of the final concert on the tour at the Olympiahalle in Munich on 17 December 2012.

Forever And A Day is a German language film with subtitles, is filmed in high definition and simultaneously released as 2DVD and 2Blu-ray sets.

The documentary contains both archive and new live performance clips from many classic Scorpions songs.

The concert film includes: Wind Of Change, Rock Me Like A Hurricane, Send Me An Angel, Still Loving You, The Zoo, Big City Nights, Is There Anybody There?, No One Like You, Sting In The Tail and many more!
