Eagle Rock Entertainment, through an agreement with Death Row Records CEO Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, is pleased to announce the simultaneous DVD/UMD release of the never-before-seen, uncensored ‘Tupac Shakur: Live At The House Of Blues’. The program is scheduled for an early October 2005 worldwide release on all formats. (The UMD format plays on the Sony PlayStation Portable game device.)

The show, which took place in Los Angeles on July 4, 1996, also features guest appearances by hip-hop and rap artists including Snoop Dogg, the Outlawz, Nate Dogg, Jodeci, Kurupt and Daz. The video of the performance is believed to be the last available of Shakur before his death from gunshot wounds later that year. The DVD will also include several of the legendary Tupac Shakur’s music videos as well as an exclusive interview with the legendary hip-hop rap mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight.

Said Eagle Rock Entertainment Executive Vice President and President of North American Operations, Mike Carden, ‘Live at The House of Blues captures Tupac at the peak of his career. It will be a must-have for fans of his music, and we’re looking forward to bringing this unseen footage to rap and hip hop fans around the world, not only on DVD but on UMD as well.’

Eagle Rock Entertainment operates in the music and entertainment business worldwide. Eagle Vision is a wholly owned division of Eagle Rock Group, LTD. The company’s corporate headquarters are in London, with offices in New York, Paris and Hamburg.

In a separate agreement with Suge Knight and Death Row Records, Eagle Rock Entertainment will represent Death Row’s audio catalogue for the world outside North America and Canada from April 1, 2006, onwards

"The quality of the Death Row catalogue is without question. It is a phenomenal collection of seminal hip hop and rap," says Terry Shand, Executive Chairman of Eagle Rock Entertainment worldwide. "We''re excited about making these recordings more accessible to a greater audience on CD and through other channels and plan to release them with special packaging and bonus material when the catalogue is re-launched in April."
