Finally it is the appearance of a big decision picture of “LOUD HAILER TOUR”. Future Eternity It is a super high quality multicamera pro shot that will continue to be told as ‘LOUD HAILER era’.
Such a work is contained in “Basel Performance on 22nd October 2016”. It is a pattern when I appeared in Switzerland’s leading music festival “BALOISE SESSION”. Perhaps, you guys are looking forward to the official video “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” which entered the countdown till the release date, but of course this work is another performance. Let’s start with the official work and check the position of the show.

“July 15″ LOUD HAILER released ”
· July 19 – August 21: North America (24 performances) ← ※ Official video
· October 22 – 30: Europe (6 shows) ← ★ Coco ★
· November 11 “THE CLASSIC ROCK AWARDS 2016”
· January 22: South Korea (1 performance)
· January 25 – February 7: Japan (10 performances)
“September 27: Release of” LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL ”

This is an overview of activities related to “LOUD HAILER”. Although the beginning of the year’s performance in Japan is getting nostalgic, there is no activity after that. The official video “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” was a show in “North America”, but the Basel performance of this work is the first day of the “Europe” leg.

【”LOUD HAILER TOUR” The highest peak of regulars】
Such a work is not simply a separate live from the official image. The content of the show is completely different. As you know, the theme of “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” is “Jeff’s 50th anniversary of career”. Historical show with luxurious guests, including Stephen Tyler, Buddy Guy, Jan Hammer etc. The set was also a special concert that was different from regular performances. In contrast, this work is undoubtedly a regular concert of “LOUD HAILER TOUR”. Actually, it is quite different from the performance songs, there are plenty of masterpieces (Huz’s) that can not be seen in “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL”. Encore’s “A Day In The Life” was not broadcasted, but the rest was recorded elsewhere. A group of famous songs such as “Lonnie on the Move”, “You Know You Know”, “A Change Is Gonna Come”, “Rollin ‘and Tumblin'” and “Superstition” swept in one piece, and indeed half of the show does not suffer from the official video is.
Under such circumstances, attention is still a new song from “LOUD HAILER”. 6 songs are plentifully presented, including “The Ballad of the Jersey Wives”, “O.I.L. (Can not Get Enough of That Sticky)” and “Right Now” that are not included in the official video. Of course, the performance of Rosie Bournz, who walked around the audience with the loudspeaker and touched Jeff, can also be seen perfectly with multi camera camera shots. Indeed, we can taste plenty of “Jeff now” that vividly revives the memory of the Japanese performance.

【Quality of the latest official work grade】
I forgot to mention important things. The quality of the essential essence of this work is super and superb. The show itself has already been around 10 months ago, but the broadcasting itself has been quite recent. It is the ultra latest video just broadcast this month. That’s why there are no super-high-quality picture quality, perfect sound, complete professional mix, and so on. Although the official video “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” is only confirmed with a small trailer, the quality of this work is not inferior at all. The quality of this work is not just “official grade” but “latest official work grade” which will be released in the future.
Perfectly imagined, it seems that there was also the meaning of “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” promotion that the show 10 months ago was broadcasted now. Regular show focused on “Jeff now in progress” against this official work of “Special guests and historical set” This work by regular show. In other words, this work is one piece that was born as possible as “sister work of an official work” and “representative work of LOUD HAILER TOUR”. Of course, it is the fate of this work to settle next to “LOUD HAILER” “LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL” in future. Appropriate for that fate, it is a permanent preservation press DVD.

遂に“LOUD HAILER TOUR”の一大決定映像の登場です。未来永劫「LOUD HAILER時代と言えばコレ」と語られ続けるであろう、超ハイクオリティなマルチカメラ・プロショットです。
そんな本作に収められているのは「2016年10月22日バーゼル公演」。スイスを代表する音楽祭“BALOISE SESSION”に出演した際の模様です。恐らく、皆さまはリリース日までカウントダウンに入った公式映像『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』を心待ちにされていると思いますが、もちろん本作は別公演。まずは、その公式作品も絡め、ショウのポジションを確認してみましょう。

《7月15日『LOUD HAILER』発売》
・10月22日-30日:欧州(6公演) ←★ココ★

これが『LOUD HAILER』にまつわる活動概要。年始の日本公演も懐かしくなりつつありますが、その後一切の活動はありません。オフィシャル映像『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』は「北米」でのショウでしたが、本作のバーゼル公演は「欧州」レッグ初日にあたります。

【“LOUD HAILER TOUR”レギュラーの最高峰】
そんな本作は、単に公式映像と別ライヴというわけでもありません。ショウの内容もまったく違うのです。ご存じの通り、『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』のテーマは“ジェフのキャリア50周年”。スティーヴン・タイラーやバディ・ガイ、ヤン・ハマー等々、豪華ゲストを交えてのヒストリカルなショウ。セットも通常公演とはまるで違う特別コンサートでした。それに対し、本作は紛れもなく“LOUD HAILER TOUR”の通常コンサート。実際、演奏曲からしてまったく違い、『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』では観られない(ハズの)名曲も盛りだくさん。アンコールの「A Day In The Life」こそ放送されなかったものの、それ以外は完全収録。「Lonnie on the Move」「You Know You Know」「A Change Is Gonna Come」「Rollin’ and Tumblin’」「Superstition」といった名曲群が一気呵成に押し寄せ、実にショウの半分がオフィシャル映像とは被らないのです。
そんな中で、やはり注目は『LOUD HAILER』からの新曲。公式映像にはない「The Ballad of the Jersey Wives」「O.I.L. (Can’t Get Enough of That Sticky)」「Right Now」も含め、6曲がたっぷりと披露される。もちろん、拡声器を持って客席を練り歩き、ジェフも惚れたというロージー・ボーンズのパフォーマンスもマルチカメラ・プロショットでばっちり観られる。まさに、日本公演の記憶も鮮やかに蘇る“今のジェフ”をたっぷりと味わえるのです。

大切なことを言い忘れておりました。本作は肝心要のクオリティも超・極上。ショウ自体はすでに10ヶ月も前なのですが、放送自体はごく最近。今月放送したばかりの超最新映像なのです。それだけに、超ハイクオリティな画質、完璧なサウンド、完全プロ仕上げのミックス等々、わずかなスキもない。オフィシャル映像『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』はわずかなトレーラーで確認するだけですが、本作のクオリティはまったく劣っていない。本作のクオリティは「単なる公式級」ではなく、これからリリースされるであろう「最新オフィシャル作品級」なのです。
完全に想像ですが、今になって10ヶ月前のショウが放送されたのは『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』プロモーションの意味もあったのではないでしょうか。「特別ゲストと歴史的なセット」のオフィシャル作品に対し、「現在進行形のジェフ」に焦点を絞ったレギュラー・ショウの本作。つまり、本作は「オフィシャル作品の姉妹作」「LOUD HAILER TOURの代表作」になるべくして誕生した1枚なのです。もちろん、未来永劫『LOUD HAILER』『LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL』の隣に鎮座することこそ、本作の宿命。その宿命に相応しい、永久保存プレスDVDで登場です。
