"Awake Live" captures Groban's exhilarating performance at Salt Lake City's EnergySolutions Arena before a sold-out crowd of 15,000 thrilled fans on August 28, 2007. Groban's third live DVD, following 2002's "Josh Groban in Concert" and 2004's "Live at the Greek." The Salt Lake City location was selected in honor of his first arena concert, which occurred in the same city.
Groban also sang at the closing ceremony for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, a performance that was seen by more than two billion people.
While the filmed concert includes favorites from Groban's three best-selling albums, including "Canto Alla Vita" and "Alla Luce del Sole" from his double-platinum self-titled 2001 debut, and "You Raise Me Up" and "Remember When It Rained" from the multi-platinum 2003 album "Closer," the majority of the songs are from his acclaimed multi-platinum third studio album "Awake" (2006), including the singles "Awake," "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)," "February Song," and "Lullaby."
