Y&T's Long-Awaited Documentary 'On With The Show' To Arrive This Month

Y&T's long-awaited documentary, "Y&T: On With The Show - The Documentary", will be released on DVD on November 26 and on Blu-ray on December 31.

This documentary, narrated by Eddie Trunk and told by frontman Dave Meniketti, along with interviews of past and present bandmembers, will tell the great story that is Y&T by the guys who lived it. From the days of rehearsing in the front room at drummer Leonard Haze's grandmother's house in Oakland, California, to the present day celebrating over 40 years, you'll hear about: the early days touring with their Volkswagen van and a pickup truck, the crazy stories of recording the first two YESTERDAY & TODAY albums, meeting Bill Graham and opening for JOURNEY, BOSTON and QUEEN, the band's big breaks recording and touring overseas, being on the road with AC/DC, OZZY OSBOURNE and DIO, the short-lived breakup in the early '90s, the reformation three years later, a tribute to bassist Phil Kennemore, and much more.

The band has hundreds of hours of never-before-seen personal footage, concert clips, interviews, and thousands of personal pictures to sift through that will visually take you through the journey that they traveled. There will be rare footage and audio clips of performances old and new, from the band's first shows to the legendary concerts and festivals. Also interviews with rock star celebrities from the many bands who have worked with and were influenced by Y&T, including Don Dokken (DOKKEN), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER), Sammy Hagar (VAN HALEN, MONTROSE), Eric Martin (MR. BIG) and the members of ANVIL, plus great stories from the band's producers, engineers and roadies over the years.

The two-disc set includes the actual documentary (143 minutes) with eight deleted scenes, plus an "Encore" disc (137 minutes) with nine special featurettes — for a total of nearly five hours of material.

Disc 1: Documentary + Bonus Material
Disc 2: Encore: Nine Special Featurettes

Please note: The DVD was manufactured as "All Regions" so it should play in your DVD player; if you encounter any issues in your country or with your player (older DVD players may pose problems), then you can watch it on a computer, which is not region-specific.

A trailer for "On With The Show" is available below.

Meniketti is the only surviving member of the Y&T lineup — then known as YESTERDAY AND TODAY — that recorded the band's self-titled debut album.

Original Y&T rhythm guitarist Joey Alves died in March 2017 at the age of 63. Two founding Y&T musicians — Haze, 61, and Kennemore, 57, who both had left the lineup — died from complications of lung cancer: Kennemore on January 7, 2011, and Haze on September 11, 2016.

Y&T's current lineup is rounded out by guitarist John Nymann, drummer Mike Vanderhule and bassist Aaron Leigh.

The band's latest studio album, "Facemelter", came out in May 2010 via Frontiers.
