It’s ‘Theatre of the Day’ time again, and today it’s the turn of the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles.
The home of the Academy Awards, the Kodak Theater is the world’s only live broadcast theatre, custom-designed for Oscar Night. The stage measures a massive 36.5m wide and is 23m deep. It has a seating capacity for up to 3,400 people. Patterned after the grand opera houses of Europe, it is decorated with elegant deep plum upholstery, making it a grand setting for concert, musical, symphony and opera alike.
David will be performing here on 19 April. To all those who will be in attendance, we hope you have a fantastic time.
We’ll cover many of the venues that David has chosen for his European and North American tours. We hope it will prove interesting and exciting to those who will be attending one of his concerts.
That’s all for today, but do keep your suggestions coming in. We enjoy reading them, and the songs you imagined David doing cover versions of in his live shows made for very entertaining reading.
The ‘Best Basslines’ poll was also interesting. It’s unfortunate, however, that some people used it as an excuse to stir up the famous Floyd feud. (Zzzzz…)
Please, we could do with less of that. For the record, the blog was about Guy Pratt’s contribution to ‘On An Island’. It is a well-known fact that David played bass on many Pink Floyd songs, and that should not be an open invitation to anyone who wishes to start a squabble. We aren’t interested in the old ‘Which One’s Pink?’ debate. We don’t care who wrote the song, or who played bass on it first. All we are interested in are the songs with a good bass line.
We want to hear your opinions and post as many of your comments as possible, but trouble-makers will not be tolerated. Stick to the point from now on, please.
