The chaos of rock culture is finally closer than ever. A trailer has come recently while there’s not much time left for the Long Live Rock documentary‘s release day. Gladly, the trailer provides us a glimpse as features Metallica, Slipknot, and much more.
Long Live Rock will provide viewers a deep dive into the culture of hard rock music, which also called chaos by the producer McHugh. A song of the same name by The Who, released in 1974 on the band’s “Odds and Sods” album, immortalized the phrase “Long Live Rock”
When and where ‘Long Live Rock’ documentary will release?
Jonathan McHugh, Gary Spivack, and Jonathan Platt produced the Long Live Rock…Celebrate The Chaos. The film will premiere with an online global red carpet premiere screening event on March 11. The premiere features a Q&A with the filmmakers, band members, and some surprise guests. You will be available to reach Long Live Rock the next day on Watch Now @ Home, which is Abramorama’s affiliate partner platform.
The documentary was filmed at various rock festivals around America. It shows the scope of just how massive these crowds are. On the other hand, the documentary also proves the power of destination music festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza. There are interviews with members of Metallica, Guns N ‘Roses, Slipknot, Korn, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Rage Against the Machine, Greta Van Fleet, Halestorm, Machine Gun Kelley, and Shinedown. These prominent performers discuss the relationship with their audience among other things.
A celebrating for the chaos of rock culture
During a press, McHugh expressed what the documentary follows as “passionate fans as they take time out from their everyday lives to commune with their ‘rock families’.” While he was speaking of the film, McHugh continued saying,
“Gary Spivack and I wanted to make a film celebrating the chaos of rock culture. Growing up in NYC I would do whatever it took to get in to see bands like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and other rock icons. We were lucky enough to work with great rock stars like Motley Crüe and the legendary Metallica when we met at Elektra Records in the ’90s. Now 25 years later we are so proud to partner with Abramorama to shine a light on the most passionate fans in the world and the music that drives them. Since we have not been able to attend concerts and may not for a while, we hope our film can fill this void…until the day we can all rock out together again!”
“Given his decades-long career in a world where music and movies meet, Jonathan is the ideal person to tell this story,” added Abramorama CEO Richard Abramowitz. “We’re delighted to shepherd his first effort as a director out into the world.”
Abramorama has acquired worldwide distribution rights for Jonathan McHugh’s directorial debut Long Live Rock…Celebrate The Chaos earlier.
