'LIVE IN LONDON' is the first live recording and concert film from acclaimed artist Regina Spektor. Captured mainly at London's famed Hammersmith Apollo Theatre, 'LIVE IN LONDON' features 23 remarkable performances that span Spektor's brilliant catalog of music, including three new songs that have only been performed live ('Silly Eye-Color Generalizations,' 'Bobbing For Apples and Love' and 'You're A Whore'). 'LIVE IN LONDON' was recorded during Regina's UK tour in support of her latest album, 'far,' which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200.
For the first time, fans can see Regina up close as she performs fan favorites like 'Us,' 'Fidelity,' 'Samson' and 'Eet,' along with backstage footage, inside peaks at sound check and more. 'LIVE IN LONDON' is a captivating 64-minute concert film directed by Adria Petty.
An artist praised for her remarkable originality, inspired storytelling and enthralling performances, Rolling Stone raves, 'Spektor put on one of the most intensely joyful rock shows we've seen all year.' The Philadelphia Inquirer adds, 'Everything she did was greeted with thunderous applause... the audience could not get enough. Perhaps what was most remarkable about Regina's performance, aside from hearing Spektor's gorgeous vocals in person, was her ability to enrapture the crowd... Spektor's passion, vitality and sheer musical talent transformed the Electric Factory into a world of intimacy.' The Boston Globe simply says, 'multi-talented Spektor is capable of anything and it shows on stage.'
'LIVE IN LONDON' is dedicated to Regina's cellist and bandleader Daniel Cho, who tragically passed away this summer.
'LIVE IN LONDON' will be offered on CD+DVD, CD+Blu-Ray, Vinyl and Digital formats.

The only major problem I had with the concert as a whole is that all of her conversations with the audience were cut. That's been a major part of the fun for me when I've seen her in concert. She can be very serious when she's playing, but then it's broken up by absolute, endearing graciousness in between songs when she engages the crowd. She doesn't always talk a ton at every performance, but I'm sure we were cheated out of some stuff that would have made the concert work better for me. I know there are people who only want the music, but I'm not one of them.
The video is nice and clean. There are a ton of close-ups of Regina singing and playing, and they're always perfectly clear.
Likewise, the audio is also very clean. I've been looking forward to a Regina Spektor concert on Blu-ray for quite some time, and neither the video nor the audio disappoint. It could have been much lousier. I'm happy with the quality.
The extras consist of mostly tracks not in the main feature, including the wonderful "Love, You're a Whore." There's also a fun accelerated soundcheck and a sweet dedication to Daniel Cho, her cellist who passed away.
It's a concert I'll watch several times, but I do hope her next concert Blu-ray has more put into its production, and it would be nice to see a big venue performance alongside a more intimate one. Keep it up, Regina.
Please snag a copy of this and give it a shot. If you like ANY of her songs, then you need to see, hear and feel this music because I'm going to warn you now, in 20 years, you'll be wishing you could say you saw the light on this woman's talent. Buy it and enjoy it. I can promise you she is only going to get better with each album that follows. Been there, seen that....
This is your warning shot across your bow. Thank you Regina and nice job.
We saw Regina Spektor at the Ryman in Nashville TN and she was totally uninhibited. Not many performers achieve that.
Check out the great interview on "Fresh Air with Terry Gross".
