Babyshambles to release live album and DVD

The new CD/DVD package will be out in June

Babyshambles are set to release a new live CD and DVD package on June 2, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

The package, entitled ‘Oh What A Lovely Tour’, documents the last leg of the band’s Winter 2007 arena tour – the gig in question took place at the Glasgow SECC on December 1 last year.

The CD/DVD set features the full 20-song set from the band, with the DVD including music videos for ‘The Blinding’, ‘Devlivery’, ‘You Talk’ and ‘Love You But You’re Green’.

The DVD was directed by Giorgio Testi, who has previously made music videos for the likes of The Good, The Bad & The Queen. It festures live footage of the band shot in saturated colours inspired by early Sex Pistols footage as well as old black and white footage of The Beatles.

“I’ve seen it about 10 times already, it’s wicked,” Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell told NME.COM. “It’s great to have a document of it, to show the grandkids I wasn’t always boring. And that I wasn’t always a head in a jar.”

For full details of the release, including an exclusive Babyshambles interview, see the new issue of NME, out tomorrow (April 9).
