Paradiso is a live DVD released by Fiction Plane on 23 March 2009 through XIII Bis Records.

Recording and production[edit]

The video was recorded on 7 December 2008 at the band's sold-out performance in Amsterdam at the Paradiso concert venue.

Paradiso was mixed by Ash Howes (Kylie Minogue, James Morrison, Eurythmics) and mastered by Andy Walters (U2, The Cure, Radiohead) at Abbey Road Studio. The cover art was contributed by Alex Lake, who, in addition to supplying the artwork for Fiction Plane's two previous releases Bitter Forces and Lame Race Horses (2005) and Left Side of the Brain (2007), has also worked with Keane, Rufus Wainwright and Amy Winehouse.


Paradiso was released in two formats: DVD with 2-CD audio, and a stand-alone DVD. A Blu-ray disc was also planned but never released due to a production error.

Special features on the DVD include the unedited version of the "It's a Lie" video (directed by Jake Sumner, brother of Fiction Plane bassist / vocalist Joe Sumner and son of rock icon Sting), and a photo gallery of images taken during the band's tour.

The limited edition disc was only sold in France, the Netherlands and Belgium.
