Picturehouse Cinemas Notches Up Another Major Live Event Via Satellite

David Gilmour – On Stage and Screen
David Gilmour, the voice and guitar of Pink Floyd, will be premiering a cinematic version of his forthcoming new live concert DVD from London’s Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, prefaced with a single song live performance – and a Question & Answer session, all transmitted via satellite simultaneously to other theatres around the UK and Europe.

Thursday 6th September 2007, will see the HD Cinematic World Premiere of ‘Remember That Night – David Gilmour Live At The Royal Albert Hall’, David Gilmour’s live concert film. Broadcast in High Definition at participating cinemas around the UK and Europe, the 85-minute programme will be introduced by David Gilmour himself performing live on electric guitar for one number. In a twist for this kind of event, there will also be an interactive element, in that attendees will be able to submit questions, some of which David Gilmour will answer, live, on the night.

The event, organised by US cinema specialists By Experience, follows in the wake of their ground-breaking world broadcasts of operas to cinemas around the word, in High Definition digital sound and vision.

As well as the audience able to see David Gilmour performing in person at the Odeon, Leicester Square, fans will be able to buy tickets to participating cinemas round the UK and Europe, and experience the event in real time. By submitting a question to the official David Gilmour website (www.davidgilmour.com), there is also the chance that David Gilmour might be able to supply an answer, live, to complete the evening.

The 85 minute presentation is a special cinema version of the forthcoming DVD ‘Remember That Night – David Gilmour Live At The Royal Albert Hall’, which was filmed over 3 nights at the prestigious London venue last May by renowned director David Mallet. Utilising the latest and best high-definition digital technology and upwards of 23 cameras, the full Royal Albert Hall show, lasting more than 3 hours, has been some time in the making, but promises to be a feast for the senses. David Gilmour’s 2006 tour supported the release of his solo album ‘On An Island’ which entered the album charts at No.1 in the UK and Number 6 in the US, and in addition reached the peak of the European Billboard pan-European chart.

Featuring Richard Wright of Pink Floyd, Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, plus Pink Floyd regulars Dick Parry, Guy Pratt and Jon Carin, the Royal Albert Hall event also highlights the exceptional contributions of special guests David Crosby, Graham Nash and David Bowie, who performs unique versions of Pink Floyd classics ‘Arnold Layne’ and ‘Comfortably Numb’.
The DVD is released on Monday 17 September in Europe, and Tuesday 18 September in North America.

Meanwhile the event on Thursday 6 September, covers the UK, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, with more details to follow re: North America and other European countries.

From 7:30 pm GMT David Gilmour will be transmitting LIVE to the following venues:
