On Tuesday, July 26, Columbia Records will release Three Nights On The Town, a special DVD package chronicling three historic New York performances by Bruce Hornsby in October 2004.

Bruce Hornsby spent the last week of October 2004 in New York with his band, The Noisemakers, to perform three unique concerts at three historic Gotham venues: the venerated Town Hall, the legendary jazz mecca the Blue Note, and Carnegie Hall's prestigious Zankel Hall, where Bruce performed a rare solo piano concert.

The centerpiece of Bruce Hornsby's New York City mini-tour was his sold- out Town Hall concert (October 29, 2004). Shot in high definition video and recorded in pristine 5.1 Dolby Digital SurroundSound, Hornsby's "Live At Town Hall" concert is included on Three Nights On The Town. Featuring stellar performances of material spanning his career from his days with The Range to his Columbia Records debut album, the Grammy-nominated Halycon Days, the "Live At Town Hall" concert showcases a seamless flow of fan favorites, surprising rarities, unexpected covers, greatest hits, and much more. Hornsby (piano, vocals, accordion) and The Noisemakers -- Bobby Read (horns, vocals), Sonny Emory (drums), Jervonny "JV" Collier (bass guitar), Doug Derryberry (guitar, vocals), John "JT" Thomas (keyboard) -- were loose and playful that night and the improvisational and compositional magic are especially palpable on the DVD's concert portions.

In addition to the Town Hall concert, Three Nights On The Town contains a behind-the-scenes fly-on-the-wall documentary lensed that same week in October, featuring intimate live footage shot during Hornsby & The Noisemakers two SRO shows at the Blue Note, revelatory rehearsal footage of Bruce preparing for his solo piano performance at Zankel Hall, extensive interviews with Hornsby and his bandmates, and vintage glimpses of Bruce and company at work and at play in glittering Manhattan.

In celebration of the release of Three Nights On The Town, Bruce Hornsby will hit the road for an extensive US concert tour featuring both band and solo performances as well as co-headlining dates with Bob Weir & RatDog (see itinerary following).
