David Gilmour at Fender Strat Pack concert - DVD update Print E-mail

Further to our last update in January on the forthcoming Fender Strat Pack show DVD, we have some more news for you of this much anticipated title. The show, on September 24th, which featured Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour alongside a whole host of top musicians at the London Wembley Arena, was a charity event in aid of Nordoff-Robbins, and celebrated 50 years of the Fender Stratocaster guitar.

The concert alone raised £175,000 (around US$330,000) for the music therapy charity, and the DVD is expected to swell this figure dramatically.

As we mentioned before, the concert has been mixed and edited in David Gilmour's home studio by David and Andy Jackson. The main feature (the concert itself) is a whopping two and a half hours long - the main aspect that has been edited out is David Jensen's on-stage introduction of the artistes. The DVD was due to hit the streets in April, but we've been informed that there has been some slight slippage on the release and it is now due in mid-May 2005.

With the audio mix done, the final touches are being made on the footage, shot under the watchful eye of Aubrey "Po" Powell, one part of Hipgnosis (the partnership with Storm Thorgerson), in high definition.

Strat enthusiast, musician and film maker Ray Minhinnett is also working on an updated version of his documentary "Curves, Contours and Body Horns - History Of The Fender Stratocaster" for inclusion on the DVD. The original version of this was screened on the UK ITV television channel in 1994, and featured interviews with a veritable "who's who" of legendary guitarists, including Gilmour.

We should have further information on the DVD release soon, along with ordering information.
