Owl City is about to give the world an All Access pass into one of his headlining shows from the All Things Bright and Beautiful World Tour with the release of Owl City – Live from Los Angeles DVD. This DVD will feature over 90 minutes of live performance, behind the scenes footage, exclusive interviews and more. Filmed at LA’s Club Nokia this past July, the full 21 track concert will be released on iTunes only on December 6th in North America with the preorder launching on November 29th. The DVD and Blu-Ray versions, to be released worldwide on February 7th, 2012, will include bonus features (backstage footage and an exclusive interview) in addition to the concert.


Owl City exploded onto the scene with the success of his major label debut Ocean Eyes. Released by Universal Republic Records in July 2009, the album topped the Billboard Rock, Alternative, and Dance/Electronic charts and was certified platinum in the U.S. It also spawned the quadruple platinum hit “Fireflies,” which hit #1 in 24 countries including twice in the U.S. Owl City then went on his first ever tour as the headliner and sold out shows across 4 continents, scarcely taking a break until it was time to record a new album. In the winter of 2010 the electro-pop aficionado went back into the basement where it all began and recorded his sophomore release All Things Bright and Beautiful, which was released on June 14th, 2011. That same week, Owl City kicked off another worldwide headlining tour bringing with him some new songs as well as his exciting live show. The 76 date trek took the band across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and the Owl City – Live from Los Angeles DVD release comes as the All Things Bright and Beautiful World Tour draws to a close.

Owl City – Live from Los Angeles will give fans a rare chance to see into the world of Owl City, experiencing the excitement of his live show intimately with the mastermind behind the project: Adam Young. Fans can view the trailer for the DVD at www.owlcitymusic.com now in anticipation of the release and preorder the DVD here.

UpdateOwl City is taking the charge when it comes to giving fans options in merchandise.  The musician’s website now boasts a Custom T-Shirt Designer where fans can completely customize their own Owl City t-shirt – from the shirt’s color, to the logo, phrase, or design the t-shirt will display as well as the color and size of the printed composition.  Fans can head over to http://www.districtlines.com/customize/owlcity and start customizing.

Update 2: Adam Young and a black Steinway Piano (pictured below) teamed up to record a wonderful rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Home of the Blues.” Adam’s strikingly different, yet beautiful acoustic version of this classing Cash song can be heard below. In other news, Owl City has a new album due out this summer.  More details to come soon.
