During the 90s Extreme relentlessly toured the world bringing their own brand of funked-up rock to legions of adoring fans. In 2008, following a 13 year hiatus, the band returned to the stage for their Take Us Alive world tour, which encompassed 75 cities and multiple continents in support of their new record, “Saudades de Rock”. Recorded on the last night of their tour, this performance captures Extreme at the peak of their game with a renewed enthusiasm led by Gary Cherone’s spellbinding stage performance and powerful vocals, Nuno Bettencourt’s ferocious guitar, Pat Badger’s flawless bass and Kevin Figueiredo’s pounding drums as well as their trademark, spot on, back-up vocals. The “Take Us Alive” concert DVD (and audio CD) was recorded at the House of Blues on August 8, 2009 in Extreme’s hometown of Boston, MA.

|• Extreme is a live band in the first place and therefore it’s an absolute must to watch this DVD, provided you’re a fan of funked up hard rock!
• Excellent performances of the four band members. It’s really a joy to watch and listen!
• Nice selection of songs, although I like the band’s classic songs (and hits) a lot more than the material from their latest studio album “Saudades de Rock”.
• The addition of four bonus video clips.
• Superb sound and vision quality.
||• No real minor points
