There are now just 10 (count ’em) weeks to wait until ‘Remember That Night’ is released on DVD: on Monday 17 September in Europe and Tuesday 18 September everywhere else. Those weeks will fly by, you’ll see.
More news on the cinemas to come, so please continue to be patient.
Here’s the next instalment in our Phil Manzanera Q&A.
Please take note of the kind of questions that make it through, if you’re thinking of submitting one for David to answer at the ‘Remember That Night’ premiere on Tuesday 6 September.
If you already have your question prepared, please don’t send it to us yet. I don’t want them until next week, possibly the week after.
Chris Thomas joined David and you for the “final push for the last 3 months”, and at that stage the album was very acoustic and very orchestral. David didn’t add any electric guitar until the final month!!! Did you and Chris have to do much coercing to persuade David to add the electric stuff? (Ken F)
No, David wanted to leave his electric playing until the songs and melodies were fully developed, although the electric on ‘Where We Start’ was there from the original demo.
In your opinion, is any of the material not used for the ‘On an Island’ sessions strong enough to be released? (Peter McConnell)
What was your process for learning the songs for the tour? Did you sit down with David and run through things, or listen to recordings and learn on your own? (George Gipe)
Tried to learn from the CDs, then asked David how (as I was meant to double some of his parts, exactly how he played them). Then an intensive rehearsal period.
How much fun was it doing this tour? (Paulo)
It was a very special, unique tour and there are so many great memories… some of which you will be able to see on the forthcoming DVD. Before the tour, we put in a lot of hours rehearsing and working on the shape of the concert, so from the beginning of the tour, we were a tight unit. We had many great times on and off stage. Lots of laughter in dressing rooms across the world.
I believe the tour was a family affair with most of the band bringing their children etc., but who in the band did you get on with best while on tour? (Tom B)
Claire, the tour publicist (my wife).
