According to Home Media Retailing, The DVD Release Report has figures that show music DVDs " jumped 17.8% from 2004, compared to the far more modest 4% to 5% gain in overall DVD releases."

"I think the consumer is pretty intrigued with music DVD and getting more intrigued," VP of video for Rhino Entertainment Sig Sigworth said. "They're hungry for ways to use their home theater systems, and music DVD is such a great way to showcase that."

Some of the more popular music DVD titles released last year were Motley Crue: Carnival of Sins and Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest 10th Anniversary both from Live Nation.

Currently, content providers are doing cross promotional ventures such as offering people who purchase tickets for the 2006 Ozzfest a discount on the Ozzfest 10th Anniversary DVD. Similar promotions are also in the works with other bands.
