In fact the standard DVD (or Blu Ray) edition is released here on Monday, with the Babel Gentlemen of the Road Edition (including the album, DVD and live CD) to follow on 3rd December, closely followed by the Road To Red Rocks Special Edition (including the album, DVD and live vinyl) on 10th December.
Until then however, you may have already seen the official trailer, and now you can watch a new clip of the band performing “Little Lion Man” embedded above or over here on MSN (select HD for the full effect). The clip will be coming to YouTube from tomorrow too.
