Back when lip-syncing was the norm, Burt Sugarman’s THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL stands alone in the history of rock ‘n’ roll as the first ever, late-night live concert show on TV, capturing the spirit of a time when rock was exploding in so many new, exciting directions. For nine thrilling years, THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL brought audiences the very best live music from every genre—rare performances right into homes every week, complete with the intimacy of close-ups and multiple camera angles that placed viewers there with the on-stage action.
Featuring an incredible array of the greatest musicians of the 1970s and early ‘80s, it was an exciting time, and it’s now been restored and re-mastered in this exclusive series. So kick back, relax and enjoy the show… from the best seat in the house.
