McCartney Unveils Secret DVD Website with Never-Before-Seen Footage and Performances

On December 16th the #1 Stand Alone Music DVD in Sales History Becomes a Front Row Ticket to an Exclusive McCartney Performance and More;
New Technology Marks an Industry First On December 16th, Paul McCartney's "Back In The U.S. Concert Film" DVD will become one of the country's hottest tickets when a 30-minute secret performance is unveiled through a web-link embedded on what is now the fastest selling stand-alone music DVD in history. This link will give fans access to never-before-seen performances taken from Macca's triumphant, sold-out, record-setting tour. The secret website will also contain rare unseen moments with Macca, his band and backstage crew.

"The album, DVD and this secret website are a constant memory of the tour with a built-in ticket to the future," said McCartney. "We couldn't get everything into the DVD feature and the television special, so the idea to be able to give both PC and Apple users a 'secret' concert and more of the backstage footage is just fantastic to me."

This web-based content marks the first time in history that both PC and Apple users will be able to access the same content. After learning that to date only PC-users were able to access web-based content of this nature, McCartney met with Steve Jobs of Apple and Todd Collart's staff of InterActual, Inc. and history was made. Now Apple users with OS9 or better are capable of experiencing the highly secretive and exclusive web-based content found on the "Back In The U.S." DVD.

"Back In The U.S." DVD features a 2-hour "rock 'n road movie," which includes footage of more than 30 classic songs filmed at shows across America. Additional content takes fans inside McCartney's just completed tour, giving access to areas previously kept private from the public such as the dressing rooms, the back seat of his personal limo and even aboard his chartered jet. The DVD is presented in 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound.

The 2-CD live set of his most triumphant tour since The Beatles, released just this past week, was the fastest selling album of McCartney's solo career. It features a 36-song set list of new live recordings from the all-hits show that rocked America.

Access to the Paul McCartney Secret Website is only available through the "Back In The U.S." DVD. Users can simply insert the DVD into any computer and click on the web link on the main menu. It is available with the following minimum integrated system and software components: InterActual(TM) Player (included); Microsoft Windows 98SE with Internet Explorer(R) 5.0 browser or Apple Mac(R) OS9; 128 MB RAM; Internet connection: DVD-ROM drive.

there are a bunch of doors that say "dressing room" and stuff like that. To get in any of the doors you have to answer some really easy trivia. There is more back stage and behind the scenes footage. Behind the one door is a sentance that pops up about the seceret show on the 16th. It's knda neat.
