Filmed during the Uh Huh Her Tour 2004 this is the first ever PJ Harvey DVD release and offers an intimate and insightful look into a world of touring, performing and traveling. Having finished her seventh album Uh Huh Her in the autumn of 2003, Polly Harvey took to the road with a four-piece band. The collection of performances featured on PJ Harvey on Tour charts her journey through summer festivals, her UK and European tour and on the US in October 2004, creating a patchwork quilt of sights and sounds. Live performances taken from the tour are combined with behind-the-scenes footage and material. Stage sets are constructed and dismantled, sound-checks take place and recording studios are explored. PJ Harvey shares her thoughts and feelings about the process of touring through unique video diary footage, giving a very personal account of life on the road. Featuring two previously unreleased tracks, Uh Huh Her and Evol, the cameras are also on hand to capture contributions from crew members working on the tour, giving a complete picture of the day-to-day experience of touring. Extras include a unique 28 minute interview with Harvey which sees her share her thoughts on writing, recordings and performing.
