Eagles fans will be able to pick up their own copies of the band’s two-part documentary next month. “History of the Eagles” will be released in a couple of different sets. The two movies will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in packages that also include a third disc of never before released concert footage of the Eagles’ performing in Landover, Maryland back in 1977, during their “Hotel California” tour. The digi-pak also comes with a special booklet. Meanwhile, a limited edition “Super Deluxe Box Set” will include the three discs as well as a 40-page book, stills from the film, a limited edition lithograph, and ten other photographs. “History of the Eagles” will be in stores on April 30th.
A new Stevie Nicks documentary is heading to theaters. “In Your Dreams” is slated for a special screening in select cinemas across the U.S. on April 2nd. The film documents the Fleetwood Mac singer’s efforts as she worked on her 2011 solo album, and gives insight into her creative process. Nicks recorded the project in her home studio with Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart serving as her producer. Stevie says the time she spent developing the album with Dave was “the greatest year” of her life, and they made the film because she wanted to share their creative process with her fans. So far more than 50 theaters are slated to show “In Your Dreams,” with more outlets expected to be added. Ticket information and a list of participating cinemas are available at InYourDreamsMovie.com.
Justin Timberlake‘s new album “The 20/20 Experience” doesn’t drop until next week, but industry sources are already predicting that it will have a huge debut week. The long-awaited album – his first in seven years – is expected to sell at least 500-thousand copies in its first week, easily giving it the number one spot on the Billboard 200 when it debuts. It would be Timberlake’s second solo album to debut at number one, as his “FutureSex/LoveSounds” sold 684-thousand when it came out in 2006. If “The 20/20 Experience” does break the 500-thousand mark, Justin could score the best sales week for an album in four months. It could also be only the fifth album to do so since the beginning of 2012, putting it in the company of Adele’s “21,” Taylor Swift’s “Red,” Mumford & Sons’ “Babel” and One Direction’s “Take Me Home.”
