Alter Bridge recently announced the release of a new live album and rarities collection, 'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities', which captures one of the biggest moments of their career when they played a monumental show at London's famous O2 Arena on November 24th 2016.

The band have put together a clip of some of the finest moments of this landmark performance with their track 'Cradle To The Grave' from 'The Last Hero'. Check out the video right here.

'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities' features Alter Bridge hits such as 'Farther Than The Sun', 'Show Me A Leader', 'Rise Today' and their masterpiece 'Isolation', showcasing a group at the top of their game. Other highlights include the Tremonti sung 'Waters Rising', the acoustic-driven 'Watch Over You' and their signature anthem 'Blackbird'.

The exclusive full-length 'Rarities' CD features the never-before released tracks 'Cruel Sun' and 'Solace' that were recorded during the 'One Day Remains' sessions, as well as the song 'Breathe' from the same time which has only ever been available as a US retail exclusive via Best Buy. These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.

This incredible selection of Alter Bridge gems will be released in multiple formats, most notably the limited deluxe editions which also include an exclusive Alter Bridge documentary featuring extensive interviews with the band, their crew and family, giving an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary show at the O2. Check out the trailer here,

Following the band's recent announcement about two special shows on October 2nd and 3rd at London's infamous Royal Albert Hall, with a 52-piece orchestra, headline shows in Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin have now been added where they will play different sets from their sold out shows there earlier this month.
