Alan Parsons: half a century of music culminates in a live show to end all live shows


He’s produced great record after great record for the past 50 years, and now Alan Parsons has given his legions of fans cause for celebration with the release of a new live album: The Alan Parsons Symphonic Project Live In Colombia.

Available in DVD, CD and vinyl formats, the album features a stream of Parsons’ biggest hits, and his band are also backed up by a 70-piece orchestra, making the whole show an unforgettable experience.

Parsons’ lead guitarist, Alastair Greene, was always stage and mix center, with his awesome lead guitar tones coming courtesy of his trusty TubeMeister 18. Check out a highlight from the show here:

 

We asked Alastair about the rest of the gear he used for the show, and this is what he had to say:

“That’s my “Lemon Burst” 2009 Les Paul Standard strung with Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys. That guitar and all of my guitars have Seymour Duncan Pickups in them. That particular guitar has the Whole Lotta Humbucker set in it and sounds fantastic. The interesting thing about that particular guitar is that it is chambered. It gives it a bit of a different tone, and it weighs less so my back doesn’t hurt quite as bad after playing it! The other guitars used were provided by a backline company, I usually only travel with one guitar when touring with Alan Parsons…”
