Eric Burdon: In Concert - The Best Of Film Poster


This release documents the behind-the-scenes experience as Eric Burdon performs in his hometown of Newcastle, England for the first time in over 20 years. This is your backstage pass for a trip back in time, to a town where Eric is the 'local boy who makes good' and everybody knows and loves him. Interviews with Eric and the band provide insight and perspective to the event, and town 'locals' provide a colourful backdrop. It features Eric and his band (Dave Meros, Dean Restum, Martin Gerschwitz and Bernie Pershey) in performance, backstage and around town as they reprise their role as Newcastle's homegrown working man's band. Humour, irony, frustration and tears are all in evidence as Eric finally brings his legacy back home. Visit the old haunts and meet the people that were the early influence of one of the inspired voices of our time; experience a musical icon's working-class roots.
