Michael Bublé "Caught In The Act" on DVD and TV

Concert of Live Show in Stores This Week; PBS Great Performances Telecast Scheduled to Air in December

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 23, 2005 -- International singing star Michael Bublé has finally been caught in the act -- a true cause for celebration. He was caught performing a stunning concert, filmed and recorded at LA's famed Wiltern Theatre earlier this year. The deluxe DVD package, which includes a bonus CD of additional tracks, is scheduled to be in stores this week. The entire show of "Caught In The Act" is scheduled to air on Thirteen/WNET New York's Great Performances series Wednesday, December 7 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS, and later throughout the month (check local PBS listings).

Bublé, who has been performing around the world for rabid fans of all ages, has critics raving about his talent. "He had 'em dancing in the aisles... a natural showman... belted out standards like a master," raved the Toronto Star about his recent performance. "Backed by a 12-piece band playing arrangements that would make Nelson Riddle smile, Bublé can sing and swing. He moves easily between ballads and up-tempo numbers. Michael Bublé has arrived and in fine style," echoed Robert Nesti of the Boston Herald.

"Caught In The Act" includes guest performances by trumpet virtuoso Chris Botti, an exquisite duet of the standard, "You'll Never Find" with sensational Italian diva Laura Pausini and a hilarious surprise visit by Josh Groban. Whether performing a reeling version of the Nina Simone classic "Feelin' Good," Van Morrison's "Moondance," the Bublé penned No. 1 single "Home" or the show-stopping version of "Save the Last Dance for Me," the DVD clearly shows this phenomenal artist at the peek of his talent. With fresh versions of "How Sweet It Is" and "Try A Little Tenderness," he's equally at home with ballads such as "You Don't Know Me" and "That's All." The Vancouver native's love for the music and entertaining is clear throughout the show. The DVD also includes exclusive behind the scenes footage of Michael and his band backstage at the Wiltern.

The Las Vegas Hilton has signed Bublé for an exclusive Valentine's Weekend performance that has the singer playing February 10, 11, 12 and 14. Contest winners from all over the globe will be flying to celebrate Valentine's Day with their favorite singer.

This past year alone, Bublé has circled the globe no less than a dozen times performing sold-out shows throughout the U.S., Europe and Australia. His current platinum CD, "It's Time" which included the No. 1 Bublé penned smash single "Home," along with his self-titled debut have sold over 7 million CDs worldwide.

"Caught In The Act," a co-production of Thirteen/WNET New York and Reprise Records, was directed by David Horn. "Michael may be influenced by his predecessors -- Sinatra, Bobby Darin, et al, but the effect is no simple impersonation. He loves these singers and he loves their songs but there's no question his sound and musical instincts are all his own," echoed Horn. "And, best of all, he's really funny, a natural showman. He plays with the style, as much as he honors it," commented Horn.
