RHCP to release live album....but not in the US!! WTF!!!!

Straight from the official site:

Live In Hyde Park- The first Red Hot Live Album!
UPDATED:8th July 04

Summer Tour is just over, but before withdrawal symptoms have a chance to set in fully, a new a new 27 track(!) double live album - comprising material from all 3 London Hyde Park shows- promises that vital fix.
"Live In Hyde Park", the Chili's first official live album ever, will feature a highly varied set of RHCP live favourites as well as covers, Flea trumpet and Chad drum solos, and.. some new songs to boot!

The provisional tracklist is as follows:

Live in Hyde Park

CD 1
01.Intro
02.Canít Stop
03.Around the World
04.Scar Tissue
05.By The Way
06.Fortune Faded
07.I Feel Love
08.Otherside
09.Easily
10.Universally Speaking.
11.Get On Top
12.Brandy
13.Don't Forget Me
14.Rolling Sly Stone

CD 2
15.Throw Away Your Television
16.Leverage of Space
17.Purple Stain
18.The Zephyr Song
19.Mini-Epic
20.Californication
21.Right on Time
22.Parallel Universe
23.Drum Homage Medley
24.Under the Bridge
25.Black Cross
26.Fleaís Trumpet Treated by John
27.Give it Away

To round up the outdoor summer night magix fix, the "Live At Hyde Park" double CD will come with a magnificent photo booklet featuring live as well as behind the scenes imagery, including a spectacular heli shot panning the whole of London with Hyde Park and all its audience.

"Live At Hyde Park" will be released in Europe, Australia, Japan and New Zealand only.



No America. What a bunch of idiots. I'll just have to download it. And since they are such a bunch of dipshits, I'll just download anything else they ever release instead of buying it. Way to piss off a large amount of your fans.

I like RHCP...studio only. I have seen them live a couple of times and it was not that good. But I agree...why, if true, would they not release a live album in the US? Something doesn't sound right.

yeah, this sucks.. saw the news on universallyspeaking last week.. i mean, they definitely have a much bigger fanbase overseas, but to not release this in the US is just silly. i'm sure it won't be a problem getting an import somewhere.. after all, that's what i've been doing with their singles with the bonus tracks for the past 10+ years... sigh...

They aren't region coded and Amazon UK is just as dependable as Amazon US.

It will come to about $19 shipped to the US. A fair price for a double CD.

Wow, completely disagree. I perfer them live. Alot of the songs of By the Way which I didn't care for, absolutely rock live. Just to see the band jam together is magic. Frusciante is amazing. Although Keides' voice is admitedly mediocre, but he's improved plenty.

Anyway, don't care if this gets released here, I already have plenty of live shows. They have a much bigger following outside of the US, so I'm not really surprised.

I have to dissagree here - Dave Grohl's voice, for example, sound mediocre live. Keides' voice flat out sucks live - he almost sounds tone-deaf.

Should be less once the VAT is removed too.

That's true, but you give it back for shipping.

Oh that's fine...I know plenty of people that love them live. I personally do not get it. The band has talent but AK cannot sing and that probably just kills it for me. It's just not a great live band for me....but I am sure there a few I really like that are worthy of being trashed.

I do believe the large venues are not a good way for them. In a club or small theater I would probably enjoy it more.

Still, I do think that it blows for people who want to buy this in the US but have to purchhase it as an import. Which used to cost more.
