Just weeks after the release of their celebrated EP One Of A Kind, Southern roots rockers Robert Jon & The Wreck have announced Live At The Ancienne Belgique, their first-ever live DVD, released April 21st via Joe Bonamassa’s Journeyman Records.
Recorded during their sold-out show at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium on June 29th, 2022, the live album captures the Wreck amid their longest-ever tour – 67 performances in 75 days across 9 countries. The tour had been postponed for nearly two years due to the pandemic, so by the time the band hit the stage in Brussels, 50+ performances into the tour, they were a well-oiled machine ready to blow the roof off the place. The night was nothing less than spectacular, featuring a setlist that spanned the last decade of their prolific career, from their 2013 debut to their 2022 release.

The live album is available to pre-order on CD/DVD, double vinyl, and digital download from https://shop.ktbarecords.com/
“A lot of time and effort went into our show at the Ancienne Belgique,” comments frontman Robert Jon Burrison. “We had been meaning to make a live album for years, so we saw this as an opportunity to document and release unique, more evolved versions of our songs.”
To celebrate the announcement, Robert Jon & The Wreck have released the first live video from the show for “Shine a Light on Me Brother,” originally the title track of their 2021 studio album. “’Shine’ is always an exhilarating song to play live,” Robert Jon adds. “There are a lot of moving pieces and even a time change between the verse and chorus. Without the horns from the studio recording, it definitely has more of a ‘rock’ feel to it in a live setting. This song also features the talents of two backup singers, which added a lot to our sound!”
Their very recent dynamic new EP release of One Of A Kind, out now on all digital platforms, received rave reviews from all over the world and help catapult the band’s awareness into new heights. Featuring material produced by GRAMMY-Award winners Don Was (Bonnie Raitt, The Stones, John Mayer) and Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons), One Of A Kind showcases Robert Jon & The Wreck’s wide range and dynamic sound, from the instant rock & roll classic “Come At Me” and the captivating, Americana-infused “Who Can You Love,” to the outstanding riff-driven roots rock track “Pain No More.”
