The CD is their second widely released live album after Rock Spectacle (1996), not including their management company's sale of most of their live concert recordings via online download or shipped CD-R, several of which saw limited in-store release in certain localities. The concert was recorded at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan on June 15, 2007.
