Burt Bacharach London tribute concert DVD coming

On Feb. 26, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release A Life In Song - a concert film celebrating the life and career of Burt Bacharach, featuring performances by Joss Stone, Justin Hayward, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Michael Kiwanuka, Laura Mvula and more.

This recording, which will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital formats, was produced and recorded by BBC Events Production.

Filmed at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2015, A Life In Song presents on-stage conversations between Burt Bacharach and Michael Grade traversing different aspects of his years in music, interspersed with performances of many of his best loved songs by a diverse cast of artists.

The evening culminates in a medley of some of Bacharach’s most famous film songs performed by the man himself and his band, and a performance of “That’s What Friends Are For” featuring the entire evening’s cast.

Originally broadcast on BBC4 in November 2015, the DVD presents three additional bonus tracks not seen in the original program: “Be Aware” – Josie James, “Waiting For Charlie” – Donna Taylor and “God Give Me Strength” – John Pagano.
