On November 1st, 2008 Tangerine Dream performed live in London, once again. The focus of the three hour concert was clearly set on the then most recent albums -- the new Views From A Red Train and the 2008 re-releases of Tangram and Hyperborea -- which were performed almost entirely (though shuffled). Nonetheless the gig featured a number of TD classic compositions -- some of them performed live for the first time -- and some completely new compositions.


In March 2009 the concert's audio soundtrack became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop. In June 2009 it was released as a three CD set as well. The mastering of these two releases is different -- the download was very loud, leaving out dynamics, which was discussed by fans with passion. It seems the band have taken the criticism seriously, because the CD release has much more dynamics than the download. Furthermore, the CD release contains an 8-page booklet with about 20 photos, most of them taken during the London gig.


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"The London Eye Concert was recorded during Tangerine Dream's live concert at the Forum at London Kentishtown on 1st November 2008. London's and TD's soundscapes are so unique like a score to a movie. The British influence in TD's music within their 40 years' development most people may have recognised. For those who couldn't join the concert or like to relive it again: Here's the full cut of their beat show at the Forum in Kentishtown [...]. A kaleidoscope beginning with the new title Trauma (Autumn In Hiroshima) and ending with the breathtaking live interpretation of the TD classic Cloudburst Flight."


In late August 2009 a DVD set was released containing the full London concert on one DVD plus a bonus DVD containing the footage recorded at the concert on November 7th, 2008 in Los Angeles. The DVDs come with a 8 page booklet containing a large number of photos as well as the track listing and the credits. The DVD menus provide the options to play the complete concerts 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 first DVD features a bonus video accompanied by the music of last track of the London concert, Cloudburst Flight.


The Eastgate Music Shop about the DVD release"Two weekends early November 2008 -- 1st weekend, a night in the freezing cold and rainy city of London and a week later the 2nd night out in sunny Southern California -- the weather contrast could not have been more different but what about the two shows? We, the people from Eastgate, just announce this 2DVD set -- you -- as part of the TD friend or fan community -- should find out which one you can relate to or feel more sympathies with. For the band it was a short adventure trip -- please find out about the two shows in a filmed document coming in one packing [...]
PS: 'The London Eye Concert' is the full concert version, but as we had restricted filming conditions in L.A. 'The Los Angeles Concert' is a shortened version limited to (still) two hours. Enjoy!"
