Dickie Chappell and his amazing lack-of-grammar Facebook show has posted that the New Blood 3-D concert film from Hammersmith is planned to be released in cinemas in September or October. I'm assuming this is just for the UK but Dickie didn't say.
"And as you should know (by now) its coming to cinema's [sic] and shops from September October time!"

This'd be brilliant if it'd be my only chance to actually see it in 3D!

Thanks Rraven, love the idea.

I'm hopeful that they will run a limited viewing in the US. Every so often we get special viewings of concerts in our local theatre. It costs more than a normal movie would, but it's totally worth it. If it doesn't happen to be run in the US, I'm perfectly content with purchasing the DVD.

Thanks Raven. Wonder if they'll run the 3D version in some Imaxes if nothing else.
Has anyone on Dickie's facebook ask why nothing in the tour diary for the Milwaukee show? :-]

Whoa, just imagine, New Blood in 3D in a big cinema screen!

Indeed. I'm thinking of trying some other routes.
Hope a DVD and show is set for the US. Sort of wish it was of the Milwaukee show but.oh well.

Perhaps they won't post it, just like Hamburg's concert last year.

At the Houston NB show, we got a chance to talk to Dickie in the VIP area. He said that Peter DOES want to have some kind of US release of the film.
Also, he mentioned Peter being unhappy that this tour's ticket prices were so high. So, if I remember correctly, they were knocking around the idea of trying to make film screenings free, as sort of a gift to fans.
The conversation happened when they'd just finished the mixing, final touches, etc, and I got the impression that they were really just getting started on figuring out how / where to distribute the films (a 3D version and a 2D version).
I would LOVE to see it, and would happily work hard to sponsor a screening for Austin!
I honestly don't know. It depends how many showings one's local cinema will show of the movie. I know there's one IMAX cinema in Philadelphia that pretty much insists on advance tickets, unless the movie is really unpopular.

I went ahead and got advance tix b/c I don't want to NOT have tickets. It's only showing one night, so far, and the hubs & I will need to get a sitter - so for me it's best to plan it right away.
My guess is that it won't be in the IMAX theatres, if it's already in other places. I have to think that booking those theatres is more expensive and takes a long lead time.
I hope this does well for him, too! I, for one, will be linking the jiminy out of it on Facebook, Twitter, etc., as the release date approaches!

Will this be released on Bluray. DVD is kind of out of date at this point. Especially for someone as forward looking as PG. Plus if it is in 3D, once again pointless on regular DVD.
