DLC Week of 2/12 - Extreme, Nazareth, Peter Cetera, REO Speedwagon & Soft Cell!

edited February 2013 in Announcements
Hey gang,

For all of the lovers out there this Valentine’s Day, Harmonix presents a collection of music’s greatest rock and pop ballads, coming to the Rock Band Music Store on February 12th!

Extreme’s acoustic classic, “More Than Words” – off 1990’s Extreme II: Pornograffiti – was a departure from the band’s funky rock sound, but managed to reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100! As a bonus, every “More Than Words” download will include a Pro Guitar upgrade!

Originally recorded by The Everly Brothers in the 1960s, Nazareth made “Love Hurts” a huge hit in the late ‘70s, making it an international hit for the Scottish rockers. This 2009 re-recording of the track by the band brings all the feeling and energy of the original to Rock Band!

Peter Cetera’s Billboard Hot 100 number one hit “Glory of Love,” from 1986’s Solitude/Solitaire, also earned the singer/songwriter a nomination for an Academy Award for “Best Original Song” as it appeared in the film The Karate Kid, Part II!

Among REO Speedwagon’s thirteen Top 40 hits, the classic rock power ballad “Keep On Loving You” may be their most memorable, peaking at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100!

Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love,” from the English pop duo’s 1981 debut, Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret, will also be available on the Rock Band Music Store on February 12th!

Available on Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation®3 system (February 12th, 2013):

• Extreme – “More Than Words” X

• Nazareth – “Love Hurts”

• Peter Cetera – “Glory of Love” O

• REO Speedwagon – “Keep On Loving You” O

• Soft Cell – “Tainted Love” O


(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system February 13th)

Price:

$1.99 USD, £1.19 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points ™, 200 Wii Points™) per song

Tracks marked with “O” feature support for keyboards; the track marked with “X” will offer Pro Guitar track for no additional cost.

    Quick note on the Peter Cetera track: "Glory Of Love" did not appear on the EU PS3 store as scheduled. We confirmed that it passed internal QA and was submitted on time, but Sony just informed us today that it has been delayed until 2/27. This is the first we've heard of any change in the schedule, so apologies for not posting sooner. We'll always give advance notice of delays whenever first party shares that information with us.

    We just got another update on the delay of "Glory Of Love on SCEE. We are now being told it will "likely be late and released in conjunction with the content scheduled for 3/5". I still don't know what the delay is, but will follow up if we get any additional info from Sony. Sorry for the continued delay.
