CD review: Live album from Groban

2008-07-04 00:00

FANS of singer-songwriter Josh Groban, and especially those who were devastated when his South African tour was cancelled, will be delighted with his latest release, Awake Live. The concert was filmed on August 28, 2007, in Salt Lake City, Utah, in honour of his first arena concert, which was given in Utah, and fans get both a CD and DVD for their money.

The CD has nine tracks, including the South African song, Weeping, which Groban first heard on a trip to this country. It’s a stunning version. Other tracks are the beautiful Mai, February Song, and Awake, all of which are performed live to an appreciative audience.

The DVD offers 20 songs and has Groban appearing with Lucia Micarelli on Aurora and Kashmir. There are also some extras including the making of the DVD.

Awake Live is a great alternative to seeing the man performing live and, as such, is a must for fans.
