Mike Peters & The Alarm Latest Releases

21st Century is proud to bring you three brand new music releases from Mike Peters and The Alarm. 

NB: All Twenty First Century DVD's are region free and playable anywhere on the planet. 

The annual edition of 'Mike Peters and The Alarm - Hands Held High - Live at The Gathering 2015' comes as a 3 x DVD / 1 x Audio disc collection.


The full four disc set features concert footage from both Friday and Saturday Gathering performances which have certainly been ranked as some of the best ever (see review below). Without any stage barriers Mike Peters and The Alarm are able to deliver incredibly high intensity performances that have pushed the band and the fans to new heights, creating an atmosphere unique to The Alarm community.

Everything that happened has been captured for all who were there to relive time and again and to show those who couldn't get in what was missed. The Friday night features grand scale versions of 'Spirit Of '76' and 'Walk Forever' with a mass of musicians and choir members on stage to compliment the raised voices of Alarm fans from all over the world. The Saturday night concert captures the modern era of Mike Peters and The Alarm at their absolute best playing rousing versions of 'My Town', '45 RPM'  and 'The Drunk and the Disorderly', to a home crowd that is with them all the way from the start of the beginning to the point of no return as Mike Peters demonstrates his remarkable stage craft at both ends of the arena, off stage and on, in and amongst the crowd. The fourth element of 'Hands Held High' consists of an audio highlight's CD that brings together the very best performances from the heart of what was a near three hour performance. Not to be missed.

Mike Peters presents The Alarm - Strength - Live at The Globe

All the stories and performances as witnessed by fans throughout the duration of a massive world tour are captured from one incredible night in Cardiff when a completely sold out venue was shaken to the rafters with emotion, pathos, humour and insight as re-enacted by the one man band powerhouse that Mike Peters has developed to tell the story of the creation of The Alarm's seminal 'Strength' album.

Housed in a 2 Disc 'Collectors Edition' Double Digi-Pak complete with full colour booklet, the concert film captures both sets of the 'Strength' tour in full. All the detail and historical reference is absolutely engaging from start to finish including dramatic re-workings of 'The Day The Ravens Left The Tower' and the anthem reborn for this occasion 'Deeside'.

Special features include a 'Majority' set that charts the rise of 'Strength' from 'Unbreak The Promise' to 'Absolute Reality' via 'The Chant Has Just Begun', along with a brand new interview with Mike Peters himself that lays out his vision for this new telling of The Alarm's history with open and honest dialogue.
