Just how blue can one man be?

That question will be answered on November 4 when Rhino releases “How to be a Megastar Live!” on Blu-ray disc and CD/DVD. This will be the label’s first entry into the high-def format.

The 1080/24p high-def picture will certainly highlight the show’s effects, audience reaction, and the shine on that thick makeup. Also, expect 5.1 surround sound. Home Media Magazine says that the set will be priced at $20. Preorders will start on October 15.

“How to be a Megastar Live!” was filmed in front of over 40,000 fans, over two days in the life of the trio’s How to be a Megastar Tour 2.0. Special features include a how-to manual, a documentary, a music video for “I Feel Love,” and a parody titled, “Mono Makes a Plea – Save the TVs.”

“We want people to walk away feeling like the real magic of rock concerts comes from their tribal and communal elements as opposed to ‘mega-stardom’,” says Chris Wink, co-founder of the group.
