On Friday, tickets go on sale for a very special David Gilmour event. Big Screen Concerts will be airing, for one night only - May 16th - a special recording of one of David's recent concerts, at movie theatres across the United States.

David Gilmour
His current run of concerts are showcasing his new album, On An Island, alongside a great selection of Pink Floyd classics. On past experience, this should be a great event, with high quality surround sound, and a great picture.

The concert (as yet, unspecified, but the recent Toronto show on April 9th was reportedly one of the ones captured on camera) will be shown at participating Regal, United Artists, Edwards and Georgia Theatre Company movie theatres across the country.

Tickets for this event go on sale Friday April 21st at theatre box offices and online at www.BigScreenConcerts.com. Their website should have a complete list of participating theatre locations, soon, along with the cost of tickets for this show.

To our knowledge, there are NO plans for airings on any other dates, nor in any other countries. Should this change, we will of course let you know!

Our thanks to TimT from the Echoes mailing list for the info!
