Pretty Maids are celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band with their first audio visual release ever! After their successful and highly acclaimed 2010 album “Pandemonium” the Danish melodic hard rockers are releasing their new DVD/CD recording “IT COMES ALIVE (Maid in Switzerland)”.
Riding on the success of “Pandemonium” which by fans and reviewers was rated as the best Pretty Maids album since their heyday back in the eighties, the band has been touring more or less constantly throughout 2010/2011. They undertook a full scale European tour in 2010 and has since played several festivals plus the occasional gigs.
For many years there has been a massive and ongoing request for a live DVD with the band and on October 1st 2011 Pretty Maids gathered in Pratteln, Switzerland with a enthusiastic and high explosive crowd of die hard fans and followers to fulfill the demand.
The outcome of that special night can be witnessed on “IT COMES ALIVE” which shows the band at the top of their game, performing songs from a 30 year long career. Besides the concert itself, the DVD contains a Rockumentary with backstage footage, interviews with the band and their fans.
“IT COMES ALIVE (Maid in Switzerland)” captures Pretty Maids in their finest moment: Live on stage – In your face ! It’s party time, so just: TURN UP THE VOLUME!

So just to be safe, we are going to do exactly that. I don't really think the world is going to end this year, but on the off chance the Mayans were on to something, let me take a moment to thank all of you for helping make the Boston experience an awesome ride. One of the best things about Boston to me is its fans; they are some of the nicest people I've ever met, and collectively the best crowds anyone could wish to play for.
I regret that we can't play as many shows as we would like, but we will do as much as we can in North America. Check out our tour page for the list of shows that have been confirmed so far, and if you can, come out to enjoy another night of Boston's music before the next great coronal mass ejection."
