Just in time to miss the Christmas shopping rush in his native US, Hassidic reggae star Matisyahu has released a DVD documenting his tour stop in Israel in December 2005. Featuring songs including "Jerusalem" and "Late Night in Zion," No Place to Be also shares offstage footage from the 27-year-old performer's week-long visit, including behind-the-scenes interviews and street performances in Jerusalem. The disc went on sale in the United States on December 26 and is now also available in Israel. Born Matthew Miller in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Matisyahu became an unexpected commercial hit with Live at Stubbs, which sold over 500,000 copies in the US and earned the artist a flood of mainstream media attention. His most recent album, Youth, debuted at number four last March on the Billboard album chart. Just six previous reggae artists have seen their albums debut in the Billboard top 10, among them Bob Marley, UB40 and current Jamaican dance hall king Sean Paul.
