A week where another new release for 2020 was announced.
London To Vegas Announcement
The London 2018 and 2019 Las Vegas residency shows were announced and confirmed for release on 24th April.
The 2018 Hysteria tour show featuring 17 songs including the full Hysteria album will be released as the 'Hysteria At The O2' concert film on DVD and Blu-ray and audio on 2 CD's plus a separate 'Hysteria Live' 2LP clear vinyl release.
The September 2019 shows in Las Vegas, NV which ended the 'Sin City Residency' will be released as 'Hits Vegas Live At Planet Hollywood' and released as part of the double 'London To Vegas' box set that also features the London show.
A 10" Picture Disc with four acoustic songs from the Vegas shows is also released under the title of 'Acoustic In Vegas'.
20/20 Vision Video Releases?
Despite being mentioned a few times by Joe alongside the '20/20 Vision' video release there was no mention of this in the 'London To Vegas' announcement.
This seems to confirm that only old (and/or unreleased) archive video releases will be part of this series. And that they will be released closer to the tour with ZZ Top.
