The Melbourne concert Nov 13, 2010 to be screened in Madison

Postby jarkko » Tue Jul 03, 2012 9:52 am

Thanks to Leonard's generosity, the participants of the Madison Event will be privileged to see the complete final concert in Australia 2010 at Perth on November 24.
Ed Sanders, Leonard's producer, has kindly taken the time to prepare the video for us. We are the first to see it (and probably also the last - it will not be released).

***Update July 6: Ed reported that the Perth archive copy has technical shortcomings and would not be suitable for our needs. He will send us another concert. More info to follow!***
***Update 2, July 6: we will show the 2nd show in Melbourne in 2010 (November 13)***

Fantastic! Really looking forward to seeing this. And thank you, Leonard for making it available to us Event people, especially when there are no plans to release it to the public. Makes it extra special.

How wonderful for the Madison attendees! But, there's no chance at all for copies to made? No illicit DVD burning activities? ;-)

Perhaps we can take a break from the local microbrews of Wisconsin and get some Fosters, then I could pretend I'm in Perth!

Haha... great plan there, John.

It's wonderful that Leonard and Ed are willing to trust us with this video.
I'm not techno enough to even guess how it'd be done, but praying that everyone will honour their wishes [dictates] and your promise.
Am happy that we'll get to see it !

Thanks, Jarkko, Ed, and Leonard 8) .

Not that it really matters but I should set the record straight here because I was there. Born In Chains was first sung in Australia at Brisbane. :)

See here:

and clarification here as well -

I just think it's wonderful that you are all going to see an Australian Concert :D

Oh, that's wonderful! And, I agree with the Aussies here, that this is very fitting... oblique, I know, but still a way of bringing you into it. I'll love seeing a concert in Australia! And a FIRST, as well, with Born in Chains!!!
