New Joe Satriani Concert Film Being Released in 3-D!

Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani's forthcoming concert Blu-ray and DVD scheduled for January 2012 will not only be released 2-D and 3-D versions, but the 3-D version will also get a limited international theatrical screening in late January, a month prior to the home video release.

Satriani told online blogger Bryan Reesman, "I think 500 theaters around the world will get to see this movie in 3-D. The 3-D version is really remarkable! It’s not goofy like 3-D chiller movies. There’s just this extra depth that’s incredible. I had to keep taking the glasses off to marvel at how cool it looked. It’s just made the experience so much more enjoyable."

When asked how his concert video will be different from standard 3-D releases, Satriani replied, "The other 3-D stuff is people leaning into the camera. We didn’t do that, and they purposely laid out the stage a little different than how we would normally do it because they wanted to make sure that there wouldn’t be this gimmicky object poking you in the face all the time, disrupting the feel of the concert. They really wanted to place the fan back in that room in Montréal, and make this experience and the technology really work to bring you back to that evening."

The concert was filmed in Metropolis in Montréal in December 2010.
