Concert in honor of Vaclav Havel on DVD
July 11, 2012
The Vaclav Havel Library and PP Production Company have released a DVD with edited footage of a concert in honor of Vaclav Havel. This concert took place last December 23 during the official state mourning for the recently deceased former president.
The DVD follows the timeline of the concert program in Lucerna and not just the segments that were broadcast live by Czech Television. It begins with a symbolic performance of the Velvet Underground Revival Band composed of musicians that have gone through various underground formations that frequently concerted at Havel's cottage "Hradecek". In the same symbolical way the DVD is concluded by underground stars Plastic People of the Universe and Garage.
