Published Sep 23, 2011With all the buzz surrounding Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary and the Cameron Crowe-directed documentary Pearl Jam Twenty, we knew that it was only a matter of time before the film got a lavish DVD release. Now, we've got the details of that package.
The film will arrive on DVD/Blu-ray on October 25, just days after the movie airs on PBS. It will be available as a standard single disc containing 30 minutes of bonus footage, or as a three-disc package.
This deluxe set includes more than four hours of extra footage. The first disc will be the film Pearl Jam Twenty, containing the theatrical version plus bonus material. Disc two is The Kids Are Twenty, an alternate early version of the movie that Crowe told Rolling Stone is "a real straight Kids Are Alright kind of account" that contains "just performance and very little talk."
Disc three is an 80-minute fan documentary called The Fans Are Alright. The three-disc package is available only from Pearl Jam's official webstore and can be pre-ordered now.
Of course, the film also has a soundtrack, which came out this week (September 20) via Columbia/Sony.
Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
