Leicester Square


Cinema tickets to see ‘Remember That Night’ (plus a short live performance from David, as well as a live Q&A session, transmitted via satellite from London’s Leicester Square) will be going on sale on Thursday morning.

Apologies again for the panic caused as a result of telling you that they were on sale today. They should have been on sale today, that was the plan, but they will definitely be ready tomorrow.

For a list of participating UK cinemas, with Box Office details, please see the ‘Picturehouses (UK)‘ entry.

Before you rush to buy tickets to attend one of the 15 participating cinemas, please take note. This is very important.

You will have the option of attending the premiere itself, at the Odeon in London’s Leicester Square.

However, these tickets are not on sale yet, so please do not contact the Odeon with questions. We will let you know when these tickets will be on sale just as soon as we have all the other relevant details, such as ticket prices.

I only mention it now because the Picturehouse cinemas will not issue refunds if you buy tickets and then decide that you no longer want them (because you’d rather go to Leicester Square instead).

So please do not create a ticketing problem by purchasing tickets that you may not use.

Thank you.

  4. Caption Competition

    Richard realised his microphone was switched on whem he heard himself muttering “Sh*t…contact lens…sh*t!” booming around the Albert Hall…

    Good luck with the dichotomy in front of you guys and whatever you do act quickly so you don’t miss out on both…

  5. Very very nice FeEd…

    Will there be a ticket limit in place to stop the scalpers? Will irregulars get first right of refusal on them?

    Cheers, Howard

    [We can’t confirm anything about the Odeon’s ticket allocation or guidelines just yet. In the case of the 15 Picturehouse cinemas, there is no ticket limit in place (and before anyone complains, that’s cinema policy, not ours). You can only get tickets directly from the cinema. If people buy more than they need, that’s their problem. We would obviously urge all genuine fans NOT to get involved in bidding wars which may result in them having to pay silly money to some greedy profiteer. These people will not be able to get refunds from the cinemas, so let them sell their tickets at a loss if they have to sell them at all. As much as we have intervened in ticketing situations in the past, this is something that the fans really need to take responsibility for, I’m sorry to say. – Features Editor]

  6. Fed…

    Thanks! It was much appreciated. You’re one of the good guys 🙂

  7. Thank you for giving us this information early.

    My backup plan If I don’t manage to get Leicester Square tickets will be to attend the nearest Picture House cinema.

    [Good luck. – Features Editor]

  8. Well, I’ll be getting tickets for Leicester Square and California to keep my options open. I’ll make my London tickets available for free to a blogger if it ends up I can’t make it to the UK.

    I suspect we will have a very busy chat on Thursday with plans being made.

    [Not that we’ve announced any US cinemas yet, before anyone asks… – Features Editor]

  9. Is it me or is that picture of Richard the perfect photo for a fan autograph request?

    For example…

    Upper left hand corner, “To Matt,”
    Bottom right hand corner, “Best Regards, Richard”

    Maybe if I received one through the mail I could examine it more closely to decide what would work best and advise…just a thought 🙂

  10. The first song I heard in the car this morning, ‘London Calling’ 🙂

    Is that a sign???


  11. Very fair answer FeEd.

    Cheers, Howard

    [I personally would always limit ticket sales, but it doesn’t stop the profiteers from getting other people to buy up a batch for them, then another friend and another… I think it has to be down to the fans to put a stop to this, really. – Features Editor]

  12. All I know is that I will be attending a show somewhere…wouldn’t miss it for the world.

    Cheers, Howard

  13. This is such an unprecedented and unique idea, I wonder who came up with this?

    Just as with the person who thought up the little plastic table shaped buffer that you now get with pizza’s so the top of the box doesnt smush the pie they should be rewarded…

  14. [omg imagine going to the cinema with David – Ripper]

    I’d gladly share my popcorn with him 🙂

  15. echoesbob, thankyou for your generous offer.

    i would like to say DIBS on your tickets. 🙂

  16. I’m just wondering if you have any time frame for when the US cinemas will be announced?

    If I’m repeating a question someone else has asked, feel free to jab me with that stupid stick of yours.


    [When we have more information, we’ll let you know. That’s the best I can do, sorry. – Features Editor]

  17. [Sorry for that, Fed. Your stick ain’t stupid.- Melissa]

    You misspelled, “schtick” 🙂

  18. Oooh, I’ve come over all excited again F’Ed – you do seem to have that effect on me you know 😉

  19. Please note that all Picturehouse tickets will definitely be on sale tomorrow morning.

    The blog is shutting down now, but will be back when we have news about Leicester Square.

    I’m afraid that you have to take a risk and either wait until (hopefully) the end of the week for details on how to purchase tickets to Leicester Square’s Odeon, or buy tickets for one of the 15 Picturehouse cinemas tomorrow (knowing that returns are not issued).

  20. It seems to me, that David’s going to celebrate Roger Waters’ birthday by this performance 🙂

    I can’t agree with you more. If I can’t get a ticket via a reliable source I then choose to not go to the show. I know it is my loss but on the other hand I do not think it is fair to line the pockets of some bastard.

    On the other hand, if I purchase ticket that I can’t use, I typically sell it at face value.

    I think that bands and promoters have slightly helped in curtailing scalping by raising ticket prices. Afterall, years ago people were paying scalpers hundreds to attend shows and promoters have figured out that since people will pay let them pay us. The higher prices at the box office does sometimes mean that shows do not sell out within minutes. For example, you could have gotten floor seats for the Live Earth event up to the day of the show from the box office.

    But, I can relate to the frustration fans have when they want to get to a particular show and can’t either because the ticket prices are so high or because scalpers have gobbled up all the tickets.



    [It’s extremely frustrating, Andrew. When there’s big money concerned, few people want to lose out on their cut. I’m sure that there’s a solution to this problem, but, the way I see it, that would have to involve just the one point of sale for each event – tickets available from the venue only, no where else – and the venues getting more staff in (to check ID, issue wristbands and such like), which would no doubt end up in the cost of tickets being raised. The punters usually end up footing the bill for these things, don’t they? The whole process would have to radically change and all the various ticket agencies would have to be taken care of for starters… The world is such a greedy place, I can’t see it ever happening. Too many people are getting a cut as things stand now. That’s why I firmly believe that the fans could bring the existing system crashing down if they used their power as consumers a little more wisely. Businesses don’t last long if you don’t give them your money. The same is true for all those shallow eBay profiteers… – Features Editor]

    Ahah !! Welcome to the ‘Rebels Club’! eh ?


    [You know it’s true. – Features Editor]

  23. Hey FEd?

    I read sumwhere else on the net that it was only that people attending the actual live event that were gonna have their chance at asking questions.

    Is that true, or is this still gonna be a fair chance for the rest of the world?

    [Where did you read that? That’s absolutely wrong. – Features Editor]

  24. Michele,

    If it is a battle on scalping, I will join the revolution.



  25. [You know it’s true. – Features Editor]

    Bien sûr, je sais que c’est vrai, vous avez raison, mais je sais aussi que les meilleures volontés des ‘bonnes gens’ succombent souvent à leur propres faiblesses… et les fans n’y échappent pas…

    Sorry, can’t say that in English, does that make sense for you ?


    [Oui, c’est vrai… tristement. – Features Editor]

  26. to michele and andrew: can i join your revolution? i hate scalpers.

    to fed: very good speech. us fans can do our bit. we are part of the problem.

  27. CAPTION:

    Wright’s first encounter with a Kurzweil did not go well.. “What does this one do…..”

  28. Well, I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing David in the Leicester Square theater on the 6th of Sept. To be there for this event is a thrill, especially since I live so far away. Timing is everything they say….and the Gods seem to be in favor of me making it there, lets hope it stays that way!

    Cheers to all, it’s been a while since I posted here but I’m back again.
