Released exclusively on the long since discontinued and deleted LaserDisc format on the 1 st, and the second released on the 21st of July 1991, the following has NEVER been released on DVD until NOW!
This DVD is sourced directly from TWO DIFFERENT original high quality LaserDiscs then Remastered to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it is transferred from the long since deleted (and ONLY country it was released in) Japanese LaserDiscs of both “ROBERT PALMER SUPER NOVA” and “ROBERT PALMER Live” and both are from nearly THIRTY years ago.
Background: This concert to put it simply is extremely rare. Why? This concert in it’s entirety simply doesn’t exist. This rare concert from 1989 appears in two independent releases, they are:
A) “ROBERT PALMER SUPER NOVA” (Released on VHS and LaserDisc in July 1, 1992)
B) “ROBERT PALMER Live” (Japanese only import LaserDisc in July 21, 1992)
“ROBERT PALMER SUPER NOVA” was released on the VHS format in the UK, Germany as well as the USA. While both titles (“ROBERT PALMER SUPER NOVA” & “ROBERT PALMER Live”) were released on LaserDisc exclusively in Japan only. “ROBERT PALMER SUPER NOVA” contained the first three songs form the concert while “ROBERT PALMER Live” contained an additional seven songs in addition to two other collaborative efforts which were two other songs with UB40 that were performed later that same day. Both sources combined offer a full concert containing twelve live performances.
MVR is presenting you with a completely unique opportunity to own this concert in it’s entirety. MVR has brought together this concert with the absolute best quality that has ever been available anywhere in the world of this historic Robert Palmer concert for the very first time!

Description: This concert actually aired once on Channel Four in the UK and was never to be seen again until it’s eventual LaserDisc release over THIRTY years later. Shot during his 1988-1989 world tour, this rare concert late in the tour has the band at their most seasoned and as tight as they ever were live making this performance really shine. It as an outstanding example of one of Robert Palmer’s best life performances from the late 1980s. Live at St. Andrew’s Stadium in Birmingham City, Birmingham, England on the 10th of June 1989
