In the summer of 2016, Jeff Beck celebrated the first 50 years of his musical career with an extraordinary concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
Beck set the stage ablaze with incredible live versions of “For Your Love,” “Beck’s Bolero,” “’Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers,” “Big Block,” “Over Under Sideways Down,” “A Day in the Life,” “Blue Wind” and more.
The night also included a legendary list of special guests including Steven Tyler, Billy F. Gibbons, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Jimmy Hall and the great Buddy Guy.
Today, October 6, Eagle Rock Entertainment has released this concert film—Jeff Beck: Live at the Hollywood Bowl—on DVD+2CD and Blu-ray+2CD. Additionally, a DVD+3LP version is available exclusively through PledgeMusic.
Over the course of Beck’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—twice! First as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992, and then again as a solo artist in 2009. Rolling Stone ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned eight Grammy awards.
From his time with the Yardbirds, to the Jeff Beck Group and his solo career, Beck’s sound and stylistic exploration has mesmerized fans and critics worldwide. This concert captures his musical journey, with a set list spanning from his first Yardbirds’ recordings to recent tracks from 2016’s Loud Hailer. As the evening progressed, Beck was joined onstage by those legendary peers. The show climaxed with all guests delivering a stirring encore performance of “Purple Rain” in tribute to Prince, who had passed away a few months before the concert.
Live at the Hollywood Bowl is a stellar showcase of Beck’s history and musicianship, and a fitting addition to Eagle Rock Entertainment’s collection of Beck titles.
