One Mile High... Live

One Mile High... Live is the 2013 live Blu-ray and DVD released by alternative rock group Garbage through Eagle Rock Entertainment. The recording took place in October 2012, at the Ogden Theater in Denver, Colorado and was initially broadcast live on AXS TV.[1] The show took place approximately mid-way through the bands year-long world tour in support of their fifth album, Not Your Kind of People and features the entire group present, with bass provided by Eric Avery.[2]

One Mile High... Live offers a career-spanning set of twenty tracks, including all of the group's seven Hot 100 hit singles, as well as a number of renditions from the band’s fifth album.[3] The discs also include behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes about songs from Not Your Kind of People, and two music videos, directed by Matt Irwin[4] and Julie Orser respectively.[5] The release also features a credit sequence soundtracked by a then-unreleased Garbage song titled, "Time Will Destroy Everything", which was used as the band's intro tape on the live tour.[6]

On April 28, Eagle Rock pre-empted the release of One Mile High... Live by posting the recording of "Stupid Girl" to social media.[7] This was followed up in successive months with the posting of footage of both "Blood for Poppies"[8] and "Push It".[9] A streaming video of the entire show was also posted on Eagle Rock's Facebook.[10]

Garbage released One Mile as a live document to mark the end of their fifth world tour, and their first since reforming the year prior. The band had never released a live video in the career. The Denver show was chosen to be filmed due to considerations such as fanbase, venue size, and the fact that Garbage were headlining.[11] Butch Vig later explained, "It's a very honest representation of what we sound like live. As a producer, I've seen a lot of bands release live DVDs and what they do is they go back in the studio and re-record everything and make it sound perfect. We did not do that. We left it very pure. It's what we sound like live. You hear little mistakes and things in the set that happen any night because it's a live environment."[11] Vig added that the band felt that doing a show with lasers and special effects, or special guest vocalists would misrepresent the band: "It's just Garbage on stage playing our songs. That's the DVD we wanted to put out." Garbage also shot backstage documentary footage, as well as recorded audio from various shows across the tour, however this was not used on One Mile[11]

The show was directed by Erica Ferrero, who had shot in the Ogden Theater numerous times prior; "The concert really showcased the packed venue. The challenge at the Ogden Theatre is limited camera placement and no space for a jib which we simulated with a robotic camera mounted high offstage."[12] Guitarist Steve Marker was impressed by the discretion used by the camera team, compared to an MTV production the band had played around the same time: "You can tell that all they really care about is what’s going on with the camera. I think that they’ve tried to avoid [focusing on lighting, etc]."[13] Garbage worked with Eagle Vision to agree on bonus content for the release; five featurettes on the writing and recording of Not Your Kind of People tracks were included. These were shot in Los Angeles by Julie Orser as buzz footage. Music videos for "Blood for Poppies" and "Big Bright World" were also included.[11]
