Steven Wilson’s super-deluxe vinyl boxset edition of his much-acclaimed Home Invasion: In Concert At The Royal Albert Hall is now out today via Caroline International.
Home Invasion: In Concert At The Royal Albert Hall is the definitive document of Steven Wilson’s globe spanning, 145 date tour in support of 2017’s To The Bone album (“His best and most complete solo album yet”, according to Classic Rock).
Initially released in November 2018 on Blu-ray/DVD and CD – described at the time by Planet Rock as “a beautifully shot document of this musician at the peak of his alchemic powers” and by Prog as showcasing “an artist at the top of his game, enjoying a career high” – Home Invasion now comes as a deluxe vinyl version that takes the live recording from the night and expands it across five heavyweight 12”s and adds six tracks to the original audio (three were previously released as extras on the Blu-ray disc, three are previously unreleased anywhere). The box set also features a 32 page full colour, glossy tour book.
To The Bone is Wilson’s fifth album. It charted at No 3 in the UK and went top 10 all over Europe, rapidly becoming the biggest selling record in Wilson’s singular thirty-year recording career. Recorded on the second night of his three-night run at one of London’s most iconic venues in March 2018, the shows featured a series of brain-twisting 3D visuals and a huge expansive 4D sound that made that most traditional of English venues feel like it was hosting a very different kind of Prom – more communion than concert. It wasn’t surprising that the Sun described the gig as “one of the best shows of the year – and it’s only March”.
