Live in London is the first live recording and concert film from acclaimed artist Regina Spektor. Captured mainly at London’s famed Hammersmith Apollo Theatre, Live in London features 22 remarkable performances that span Spektor’s brilliant catalog of music, including three new songs that have only been performed live.
For the first time, fans can see Regina up close as she performs fan favorites like Us, Fidelity, Samson and Eet, along with backstage footage, inside peaks at sound check and more. Live in London is a captivating concert film directed by Adria Petty.
An artist praised for her remarkable originality, inspired storytelling and enthralling performances, Rolling Stone raves Spektor “put on one of the most intensely joyful rock shows we’ve seen all year.” The Philadelphia Inquirer adds, “Everything she did was greeted with thunderous applause …the audience could not get enough. Perhaps what was most remarkable about Regina’s performance, aside from hearing Spektor’s gorgeous vocals in person, was her ability to enrapture the crowd … Spektor’s passion, vitality and sheer musical talent transformed the Electric Factory into a world of intimacy.” The Boston Globe simply says, “multitalented Spektor is capable of anything and it shows on stage.”
Live in London is dedicated to Regina’s cellist and band leader Daniel Cho, who tragically passed away this summer.
