For the Nostalgic Dad



Live in Montreal, this concert by Queen is the only one that was ever shot on 35mm film. Always a great live band, with arguably the greatest frontman of all time in Freddie Mercury, they excelled themselves with the cameras rolling.

For the Groovy Dad



James Brown's electrifying live performances are legendary and his appearances at Montreux give ample evidence of this. This concert filmed in 1981 is undeniably one of his finest performances.

For the Rock Dad



Aerosmith Rocks Donington is much more than just a great gig. It is a lasting document of the powerful and explosive bond that these five men - Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, and Joey Kramer - have made with each other and with fans of rock 'n' roll everywhere.

For the Old-fashioned Dad



Charged with the electricity of a heavyweight prizefight, The Main Event was filmed live at Madison Square Garden. Sinatra dazzles the crowd with contemporary numbers such as "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" and "Let Me Try Again".

For the Cowboy Dad



Outlaws And Angels is a very special celebration of the music of Willie Nelson. The concert recorded at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles in early 2004. It follows on from the Stars And Guitars and Live And Kickin concerts of 2002 and 2003 but is the first to be released on film.

For the Hipster Dad



DUST AND THUNDER chronicles the meeting of South Africa with their long-standing favorites, Mumford & Sons. A British band in huge demand, and a country extremely excited to welcome them. With a coachload of their close musical friends brought along for the ride, this exquisitely shot film captures the tour's conclusion with two nights in the beautiful Pretorian outback.
