Francis premiered Francis Comes Alive: The Movie on nugs.net in November 2023 following the release of the live album, Francis Comes Alive, which made JamBase's favorite albums of 2023 list. Neal captured the hour-and-a-half long performance live to tape at Thalia Hall in his hometown of Chicago on March 25, 2023 with an expanded band.
