Empire is a blu-ray / 2CD set capturing Big Big Train on excellent live form at the Hackney Empire on 2 November 2019.
Including material from the English Electric, Folklore, Grimspound and Grand Tour studio albums, Empire was filmed by Tim Sidwell and audio mixed by BBT’s sound engineer Rob Aubrey.
With 16 page booklet and 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio and stereo.
This is the last performance to feature recently departed BBT members, Dave Gregory, Rachel Hall and Danny Manners.
“The Hackney show was filmed with five operated and a sprinkling of locked off cameras,” explains Tim Sidwell. “The camera operators were pre-directed and left to their own devices to react to the music during the show itself. It’s always a gamble when you approach a multi-camera shoot in this way, but on viewing the edit we were all excited to see how well the show had been captured.”
“It’s really exciting to be working with Big Big Train” he continues. “The music and the sheer talent on stage carry concert films like this and with a mix as good as the one that Rob Aubrey has produced, fans will be blown away with this record of the tour.”
