IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: WINNERS ANNOUNCED (23/08/06)
Well done to the following five people who will be going to see David and the band at Abbey Road: Simon Emery, Lorraine, Tomasz, Julie Gunn Davies and Chantelle.
You each win a pair of tickets. Remember you will need to take photographic ID with you and anything to prove that your address matches what we have on our guest list. If you’re late, you will be turned away, so aim to be there no later than 2:30pm, please.
Have a wonderful time.
We have another brilliant competition today.
It’s for an afternoon at the legendary Abbey Road studios next Tuesday (29 August) to witness the recording of David’s segment for Channel 4’s ‘The Abbey Road Sessions’.
Featuring David’s full live band, the programme is due to be broadcast on Channel 4 in late November.
Entries will be accepted until 9pm (UK time) tonight, after which time the blog will be completely shut down for the night. Five names will then be selected at random from a numbered list and the winners will be notified on Wednesday.
There’s no question to answer. All you need to do is send in your full name and address in the usual manner (your details will not be published, don’t worry). If selected, you will win a pair of tickets to Abbey Road Studios, 3 Abbey Road, London, NW8 0AY.
The recording starts at 3pm and ends no later than 6pm.
This competition is open to (almost) everyone, but you must be able to make it to London on time with no excuses.
As we like to reward our regulars for their contribution to the blog, you will need to have posted at least half a dozen times to be considered eligible for this prize.
Recording will take place at Studio One, which is the large studio where the orchestral recordings for ‘On An Island’ were made.
As yet, it seems that only three songs will be performed (‘On An Island’, ‘Take A Breath’ and ‘Smile’), each of which will be performed three times to get the best take. This is subject to change.
This will also be David’s final engagement of 2006.
The format of the recording allows for no audience applause, so if you think you can control yourself, can make it to North London by 3pm sharp on Tuesday 29 August (latecomers will be briskly turned away) with evidence of your address and photographic ID, let us know.
