The Jimmy Eat World DVD EP celebrates the band's mighty efforts of 2002. With three festival tours -- the Warped Tour, the Pop Disaster Tour (with blink-182 and Green Day), and the Extended Midget Tour (with Tenacious D and Weezer) -- and two solo jaunts across the globe, Jimmy Eat World finally got heard on the radio and eventually went platinum. They thank the fans for this, and this limited-edition release is a gift for them. Jimmy Eat World's three biggest singles -- "Bleed American," "The Middle," and "Sweetness" -- are included in video format, and "Get It Faster" is introduced for the first time. Three audio tracks captured at a June 2002 show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., highlight the band's intoxicating live performance, but Jimmy Eat World's cover of Wham!'s holiday hit "This Christmas" makes this package the ultimate must-have. Fans will not be disappointed -- it's also a preview to the band's 2003 full-length DVD Believe in What You Want.
