Thanks to MusicTAP for the tip-off to this one: Eagle Rock has set an August 10 release date for Roy Orbison: The Last Concert, a CD version of Orbison’s final show. Recorded at the Front Row Theater in Highland Heights, Ohio on December 4, 1988 – two days before Orbison died of a heart attack at the too-young age of 52 – the set shows Orbison at the height of his mid-’80s resurgence, with a set leaning heavily on his early solo hits.
The Last Concert was first released in 2008 on iTunes, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Orbison’s passing. But this release is its premiere on CD – always a treat for fans of physical media.
Pre-order it at Amazon and view the set list after the jump.
