Lillian Axe founder Steve Blaze reflects; “When I first had the idea of putting this show together, it was originally going to be a private 20 person show with acoustic guitars, vocals and no production, however, it took on a life of its own.”

Filmed in high definition, the Blu-Ray and DVD will contain the acoustic performance, fan question and answer session, videos for the songs Caged In andDeath Comes Tomorrow, live concert footage from their July 4, 2013 performance at the Paragon Casino and behind the scenes footage.

MRR owner Andrew McNeice: “I’m excited to be involved with the guys on this release. The guys really deliver an “electric” unplugged set of their classic songs and it’s an honor to have such a great name in music on the MRR label. It’s also our first DigiPack/DVD release on the label, so I’m really keen to see how this release goes. Confidence is high!”
