Iced Earth is preparing to release its very first ever live DVD/Blu-ray. Live in Ancient Kourion will be released in the United States on Tuesday, April 16th and April 15th in Europe. The upcoming live release is taken from the band’s epic two and a half hour concert held at the ancient amphitheatre in Limassol on the island of Cyprus. The amphitheatre itself is roughly six thousand years old. The upcoming live show will be released both in DVD and Blu-ray format and a deluxe package that includes the complete show on a double-disc CD set. The audio portion of the show will be available both in double-disc CD set and a triple-disc gatefold vinyl set.
