New York, NY (Top40 Charts / CC Entertainment) Alexander O'Neal, a pioneer of the Minneapolis Sound, returns with his first ever U.S. live recording on CD and DVD. Fresh off the BET Awards, a feature episode of Unsung, and a thrilling live set at the Essence Festival at the Superdome, the chart topping O'Neal proves he's still got it. Recorded live where it all began--downtown Minneapolis along with his 8-piece band--O'Neal lights up all his biggest hits.

Live in Minneapolis includes a number of songs written by famed Minneapolis producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, such as "Criticize," "All True Man," "If You Were Here Tonight," "Sunshine" and more. The CD and DVD are available for purchase 8/30/11 everywhere, and on or iTunes.

Bobby Z, drummer for Prince and the Revolution, produced and directed the package, with mixes by Z's Grammy winning brother David Z. The package also includes a bonus DVD concert film edited by Z's son, Joseph Rivkin. This is Bobby Z's first project after suffering a near fatal heart attack last February. "It is Alex in top form," said Z. "I am proud of him on this masterpiece!"

Says O'Neal, "Thanks to Bobby Z for believing in me. Who would have thought, with Z being from the Prince camp, and me from the Flyte Tyme camp, we would come together and bring this kind of musical beauty."

Live in Minneapolis will be released everywhere on August 30th, with O'Neal performing and promoting this set well into 2012. There will be a CD signing event promoting Live In Minneapolis at f.y.e. in the Mall Of America, Bloomington, MN, on September 10th, 4:30 PM.
CC Entertainment is a Minneapolis-based record label distributing Live In Minneapolis through eOne Entertainment.
