Hugh Laurie

Actor-turned-musician Hugh Laurie's gig onboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California is to be released as a concert movie.

The House star and his Copper Bottom Band performed on the ship earlier this year (13) in a bid to recreate a concert staged by Laurie's hero Professor Longhair at a Paul McCartney party in 1975.

The gig was filmed and now footage has been edited for the actor's first concert to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Laurie tells WENN, "The Queen Mary has been moored at Long Beach since 1967. She crossed the Atlantic a thousand or so times before retiring to serve out her days as a hotel. But there is a bigger reason for its holiness.

"It was on the Queen Mary, at a party hosted by Sir Paul McCartney (then a humble mister), that the great Professor Longhair recorded the album that changed my life - Professor Longhair Live on the Queen Mary didn't need no fancy title. It is what it is, and changes who it changes."
