David Bowie Live By Satellite


On September 8th 2003 in London, DAVID BOWIE will make technological history and bring his new album 'Reality' to cinemas all around the world.

In a specially produced performance, Bowie's live show is to be beamed via satellite to cinemas globally, culminating in a real time, interactive Q&A between Bowie and cinema audiences whom will also be able to make requests for Bowie classics.

The show will consist of David Bowie performing an exclusive live set showcasing his brand new album 'Reality' released September 15th on ISO/Columbia Records, as well as many cuts from his legendary back catalogue.

The 90-minute programme will be simultaneously transmitted via satellite to cinemas and theatres across Europe and due to time delay the following day across Asia, Japan and Australia. North America, Canada and South America will be able to catch the show on 15th September, making this a truly worldwide event.

This is the latest in a long line of groundbreaking technological advances for Bowie, BowieNet, his exclusive online community was the first to offer ISP capabilities to it's subscribers, he was an early exponent of e-mail using the then brand new form to communicate with the media during the legendary 'Serious Moonlight' tour in the 80's. In addition Bowie was at the cutting edge of digital technology by offering the first widespread online download of the track 'Telling Lies' in the mid 90's.

This spectacular trans-continental media event will cover the furthest flung corners of the world, from Rio de Janeiro to Milan, from New York to Sydney, from Edinburgh to Warsaw and from Toronto to Tokyo. The full list of theatres screening the event in Europe are listed below.

The show will be shot in digital widescreen and recorded in DTS digital 5.1 Surround sound for total digital delivery to cinemas - not a film reel in sight - representing the most innovative and wide reaching use of digital technology in cinemas to date.

Tickets will be available directly from the cinemas screening the show and are on sale from 9am Thursday August 14th.

This unique live and interactive show is a taster for David Bowie's brand new album, Reality and also his first world tour in almost a decade.

'REALITY' is due for release on ISO/Columbia Records on September 15th, just prior to Bowie beginning his highly anticipated sold out European tour, which will commence on October 7th in Copenhagen and comes to a close in Glasgow on November 28th.
