Albums | PRETTY MAIDS, Maid In Japan Back To The Future World (live)

Het album Future World wordt na meer dan 30 jaar terug live gespeeld, aangevuld met enkele andere nummers. Opnames gebeurden over twee optredens in 2017 in Tokio. Dat Atkins het nog altijd kan, is wat tegenstrijdig met zijn recente strijd tegen kanker. Het bewerken van zijn publiek is de man op zijn lijf geschreven. Alles wordt in een hels tempo gespeeld en de nummers komen ook wat zwaarder over dan het originele werk. Toppers zijn ‘We Came To Rock’ en ‘Rodeo’, die het publiek zeker weten te smaken. Dit album komt uit als CD maar ook als DVD, met elf nieuwe promotiefilmpjes die allemaal te horen/te zien zijn op de opname in Tokio.

Releasedatum: 22 mei 2020


Lees Pretty Maids are alive and kicking and set to release an exciting new live CD/DVD and Blu Ray package, “Maid In Japan – Future World Live 30th Anniversary”. This is a special release which sees the Danish hard rockers offer a full performance of their classic album “Future World”, originally released in 1987. This was the band’s first major breakthrough release in the metal community and arguably the band's most popular album.

To celebrate the album’s 30th Anniversay over the course of 2017-18, Pretty Maids hit the road to play the album in it’s entirety to mark the release of this landmark in their discography

The band decided to record and film a live performance of the album in Tokyo, Japan where the band was set to play the Future World album on two nights in November of 2018.

"After all, the decision to record it in Japan was kind of obvious since Japan has been one of our strongest markets since the ‘80s by all means, and we never filmed any live stuff there,” says singer Ronnie Atkins. "I remember both the concert we did while being there as absolutely great fun with a very loud and enthusiastic crowd. I mean, it is always a pleasure performing in Japan since it’s a fantastic and very dedicated audience, always have been. And so it was on those two nights in November 2018."

At the moment, the band is not planning to play the “Future World” album again in it’s entirety, so this is a very special release which all Pretty Maids fans should own!
