Rockshow Trailer

24/08/2016 at 9:19 AM

In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary “Wings over America” triple live album and the concert film “Rockshow”.

Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, “Rockshow”, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time. This is Paul McCartney and Wings live on stage in a concert that is destined to live forever!

Manipulated Photography

24/08/2016 at 4:15 AM

This small installation of 10 works from the MFAH photography collection continues the conversation started by the major exhibition Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop.

Although photographers have long used manual techniques to alter their images, digital cameras and software applications such as Adobe Photoshop have made this process quicker, easier, and more accessible than ever before.

Whereas Faking It reveals the ways in which photographers — from the 1840s to 1990s — used the tools of their day to manipulate images, After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age explores how artists use digital technology to alter photographic images in the 21st century.

* This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Syd Barrett At Film Festival

30/07/2016 at 2:31 AM

A series of films will be shown at this year’s Cambridge Film Festival to celebrate the life of late Pink Floyd icon Syd Barrett. Cambridge Live have teamed up with the Cambridge Film Trust for the event and will screen the documentary Get All That Ant which features stills and archive footage taken during the 60s and filmed in Barrett’s hometown of Cambridge, London and San Francisco.

The majority of footage has never been seen before and features live performances and stills featuring artists including Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, The Doors and Donovan.

Filmmaker Anthony Stern says:

“The film came about after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s encouraged me to make sense of the last 50 years of my life. Delving through my cellar, I found suitcases full of tapes, film reels and over 7000 still photographs from the period 1963-1970.

This film is a homage to that time, capturing the dreams, memories and reflections that sprung from a moment when we really thought we could change the world. Fifty years on, I’m starting to think these values are starting to reemerge.”

European Tour Dates

12/07/2016 at 4:19 AM

American post-rock band Tortoise extend their European trek in support of latest album “The Catastrophist”. Tortoise have added more European tour dates over the coming months. The American post-rock band announced their spring trek in April in support of latest album The Catastrophist – with further dates planned through the year.

The band also announced that they’ve rescheduled their London headline show from the Electric Ballroom on July 7 to London’s Dome at Tufnell Park on November 15. Do you want to see Dance and Electronic artists live in concert but it’s sold out? Dance and Electronic performers will visit the UK in 2016 on various dates. Make sure you buy your Dance and Electronic tickets here to avoid disappointment. Alternatively if you have tickets to sell for any of the tour dates then you’re in the right place as GET ME IN! is the marketplace for true fans. The best time to enjoy a music festival is definitely the summer and Europe offers each year thousands of summer music festivals. We have selected for you the top 15 summer music festivals in Europe. From Secret Garden Party in the UK to Ibiza Closing Parties, discover the best music festivals in Europe and be prepared to live unique experiences. There is so much to discover in Europe!

America is now flush with dance festivals, but that’s nothing new for Europe. Dance music has been a cultural constant across the pond for decades, so it should come as no surprise that there are a staggering number of festivals catering to music fans who want to get down.

Fusion’s Kulturkosmos organizers now own its  former Soviet airfield site and run a commune there throughout the year. Often compared to a German Burning Man, Fusion is about far more than just music — welcoming the more than 70,000 attendees lucky enough to obtain a ticket into a mesmerizing world of art, performance and self-expression. Within the shelter of the Garden, where the dogs of society’s howl is inaudible, we are exploring the more positive visual imagery.

The difference is that Glastonbury has all the best aspects of being at a festival in one astonishing bundle.

It’s like going to another country, a hip and thrilling Brigadoon that appears every year or so. Coming to Glastonbury involves a fair amount of travel, and probably a queue to get in but, when you get past these impediments, you enter a huge tented city, a mini-state under canvas.

Marillion Reveal FEAR Tracklist

12/07/2016 at 3:48 AM

Marillion have revealed the final tracklist for their upcoming 18th album FEAR.

It will feature 17 pieces of music split over five tracks, with the follow-up to 2012’s Sounds That Can Be Made out on September 23.

The band previously said the track New Kings looked at “the ravening beast that capitalism seems to have evolved into,” El Dorado “examined the notion of political entitlement,” and The Leavers, which “examines the impact of life on the road for those constantly waving goodbye.”

Ealier this month, frontman Steve Hogarth explained the thinking behind the album title, saying they’re not trying to offend people needlessly.

He said: “We’ve used ‘FEAR’ as a title with some relish, but only as it shows we haven’t shied away. “It’s said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behaviour – love and fear. All the good stuff comes from love.”

FEAR will be available in CD, LP, special-edition CD, Ultimate Edition box set and digital formats.

Marillion will head out on tour next month, starting in Barcelona, Spain.
