Image Entertainment just announced that it has secured distribution rights to Rockin’ The Corps, one of the largest star-studded concerts ever held to support U.S. troops. It was held on April 1 at Camp Pendleton, a U.S. military base near San Diego, for nearly 50,000 U.S. Marines and their families. The concert featured performances by Destiny’s Child, Kiss, Richie Sambora, Hootie and the Blowfish, Ted Nugent and Godsmack. The evening was hosted by Cedric The Entertainer, with celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Randy Jackson, Heather Locklear, Cindy Crawford, Alyssa Milano and Carmen Electra, amongst many others on-hand to introduce the performers.
Image Entertainment will release the “Rockin’ The Corps” DVD – as well as an audio CD – on September 6, 2005, featuring performances from the concert, as well as backstage footage and other exclusive content. The CD will feature an exclusive bonus DVD with content from the show and behind the scenes footage.
