Expanded Luther Vandross “Live” album being released with new songs

NEW YORK – January 20, 2023 – J Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, are pleased to announce the deluxe digital release of Luther Vandross – Live Radio City Music Hall 2003 – Expanded 20th Anniversary Edition – The Last Concert on Friday, February 10. It may be pre-ordered HERE

A romantic prelude to Valentine’s Day 2023, Luther’s Radio City rendition of “I’d Rather” (the second #1 Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart-topper from 2001’s Top 10 platinum-selling eponymous album) is being released as a single accompanied by an elegant new lyric video (the first-ever created for the song) premiering online today.

Luther Vandross–the award-winning American singer, songwriter, producer and performer whose exquisite tenor vocals combined elements of R&B, pop, soul and indefinable magic while selling millions of records–performed two sold-out shows at New York’s fabled Radio City Music Hall on February 11 and 12, 2003. Though his Radio City concerts would be his last–Luther suffered a severe stroke in April 2003 and died July 1, 2005–the artist was at the peak of his powers during these shows and this newly-restored concert recording captures Luther’s masterful showmanship, soulful singing, and deep connection to his audience.
