Few artists have ever permitted such an intimate glimpse behind the scenes as MESH are now granting their numerous friends with „Touring Skyward“. The British alternative electronic favourites have allowed the cameras to accompany them into the backstage, onto the tour-bus, and to other usually restricted or private locations. The two founding members of the band, Mark Hockings and Richard Silverthorn, open up in deeply honest interviews. Detailed depictions of the stage set-up of all musicians involved, fan interviews, and many more insights complete this exciting road movie.
Such an undertaking would not be complete without the concerts: These are aptly provided by professionally edited stage footage shot in full HD resolution. MESH make full use of the chance to demonstrate their dynamic stage performance and the determined will to win over even a crowd that reacts initially hesitant until they have made them fully theirs.
„Touring Skyward – A Tour Movie“ comes as a limited artbook with a Blu-ray of 3 ½ hours playing time including two audio CDs featuring all 23 live tracks recorded on the tour as well as a spectacular 60-page photo booklet.
By the bucketful of heart’s blood and rivers of hard working sweat went into the making of „Touring Skyward – A Tour Movie“. It took four and a half years to record, produce, and announce the Blu-ray from the time of the almost sold-out tour until the release in January 2022. Now as all the obstacles have been overcome a massive package is waiting to be enjoyed.
„Touring Skyward – A Tour Movie“ is not just another live recording or documentary, but rather honouring an exceptional artist such MESH it is all of this and much more: „Touring Skyward – A Tour Movie“ is a gift from the alternative electronic heart for all the amazing and numerous ‚Friends Like These….‘!
