Tarja’s long-awaited live release “Act II” is finally here. “Act II” is a follow-up of “Act I” released in 2012 and features two live shows.
The first one being the very intimate 75-minute set filmed and recorded live at the Metropolis Studio in London, U.K. The second one represents singer’s breathtaking live performance of her shows at Teatro della Luna Allago in Milan, Italy recorded on November 29, 2016. Besides two live shows, the release features previously unreleased interviews and photo galleries.
Tarja says: “Act II” is not a live-video, it is a live-art-video and you are free to discuss it very controversially; what is exactly what I want.” She explains: “In the video, every song was treated in order to transport the feeling I wanted to express live at the show. As close as possible to the way the audience might have felt it that night. We used additional footages, used video snippets, photos and graphics and worked with lights, framings and reflections, changed colours and created moods, distorted pictures and inserted slides. And sometimes we kept the pure picture because itself it transported everything we wanted.”
“Act II” will be released on July 27 via earMUSIC as 2CD digipak, 3LP gatefold, DVD, Blu-ray, limited mediabook 2CD+2BD (including two full live shows filmed at Hellfest, France and Woodstock Festival, Poland)and digital.
