In June 2011 Tangerine Dream had participated in the Starmus Festival on Tenerife island and performed a one-off concert with guest appearances of famous guitar player Brian May. Fans had to wait almost two years until the concert was made available on CD -- most probably due to the fact that more parties were involved than for a regular album featuring solely Tangerine Dream.
On two discs the album presents the complete concert (including some speeches) featuring a unique selection of music. Besides live recordings of well-known TD material (mostly from more recent years) there are two new TD tracks (Supernova and Janus Parade) that are otherwise unreleased yet, two compositions by Brian May performed live together with TD, and a live arrangement of the famous Soviet Russian-language song Tenderness, sung by Iris Camaa.
The album comes with a 24-page booklet including various photos taken before, during and after the gig.
Only a few days after its CD release this album became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well.
The DVD version of this album took more than five years to be finally released in September 2016. The double-layer DVD comes in a standard DVD case with a 20-page booklet, including the track listing, credits and numerous large photos from the concert. The DVD menu provides the options to play the complete concert as well as to start from individual tracks, to view the credits, and to do the audio setup (Stereo 2.0 or Dolby Surround 5.1). The track order of the DVD version is slightly different compared to the CD release but overall contains the same music plus a bonus video feature, showing the band and crew on Tenerife and during the concert preparations.
