  • $ 19.99

PNYC is an essential souvenir from Portishead's extraordinary live performance at New York's Roseland Theatre in July 1997.

Since the release of Dummy, their '94 debut album, Portishead have been leading the way for innovative British bands, continuing to adapt to the ever-changing face of music without compromising their integrity or denying their roots. Their reputation, both as a meticulously produced studio band and a-force-to-be-reckoned-with on the live stage have earned them consistent critical acclaim, worldwide album sales exceeding 4 million units and their place in the music history books.

PNYC was unlike anything that Portishead had ever attempted before. Flanked by the 30-piece New York Philharmonic Orchestra and a 5-piece horn ensemble the Mercury Music Prize winners gave one of their most compelling performances to date making PNYC one of the must-see musical events of the year. This unique and intimate performance, which demonstrates the power of Portishead as a live act, features some of their most memorable tracks including –Only You," –Cowboys," –Strangers," –Sour Times" and –Glory Box."

This re-mastered DVD includes not only the full-length performance and documentary footage but also a previously unreleased acoustic version of –Wandering Star," short films –To Kill A Dead Man" and –Road Trip," the band's promo videos and additional tour footage.
