105.5 WDHA FM - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Live From Detroit DVD

"We thought what a great thing to do, to capture that. You know we had, obviously we had the Hysteria, 'VIVA! Hysteria', but we haven't really had a live album, you know kind of DVD, really since the 'In The Round In Your Face'.

"We decided Detroit because I think it was one of the first ones that sold out. It's always just an amazing audience you know in Detroit Rock City. Pine Knob, we've played there zillion of times and it's always killer."

"So that was kind of a no brainer really. When that one sold out pretty early on it was like 'Yeah, let's record it there.'"
