Well, in addition to being able to enjoy ‘Remember That Night’ with all the trappings of a cinema environment (think more than popcorn), you’ll also be able to enjoy something else.
This is where it all falls nicely into place.
That same night – Thursday 6 September – there will be a premiere at London’s Leicester Square. David will be performing live, then sitting down with the rest of the world to watch 85-minutes of concert footage from London’s Royal Albert Hall.
David’s performance will be broadcast, live, to all the participating cinemas, via satellite. So, not only do you get to see the concert, you also get to see David performing a song or two.
But that’s not all. Get this: David will also be doing a live Question and Answer (Q&A) session.
This is the fun bit.
I want you to send in a question for David. I’ll pick the best ones. Then, if chosen, I want you to dust down your webcams and record yourself asking your question. If this isn’t possible, then I’d like a photograph of you, along with an audio file of your voice.
The idea is that, in every cinema that’s involved in this event, your face will be shown on its huge screen, everyone in all the participating cinemas (we’re looking at close to 200 at the moment) will hear you asking your question, and then we’ll all witness David answering it – all live and thanks to the wonders of technology.
Have a think about some appropriate questions. You know that I will not consider any questions about the likelihood of Pink Floyd getting back together, questions about rumoured future performances, questions about David listening to your band’s demo recordings, etc.
Please don’t send in your question yet. Just think about what you’d like to ask for now and sit tight.
Do let me know what you think of the idea. Are you going to send in a question? I’m relying on you ‘Irregulars’ to do me proud, you know.
A list of UK cinemas is coming next, with the rest just as soon as I can confirm them.
And before anyone asks, no, I’m not getting tired of ‘Remember That…?’ puns.
