Live From Detroit DVD

"Yeah it's a DVD. It's a live concert DVD. We recorded Detroit last year actually. It's kind of a continuation of that tour. But you know everyone kept saying; 'This is the best we've ever seen you guys'. This is better than the 80s. The show looks better and all that so we felt a need to document it."

"So we recorded the Detroit so because that was the first show to sell out. Yeah that was great and it, you know, it turned out amazing. So I'm thrilled about that too."

Choosing Detroit As Filming Location

"On this tour. Actually on the tour last year. So that was the reason why we actually decided to record and video that show."
