The Concert for Bangladesh: Screening in LA
Article Source: Me
Thanks to Matt Wilczynski
Last night was the screening of The Concert for Bangladesh and I recieved a report from Matt Wilczynski who also sent a report on The Concert for George screening a couple of years ago. At that screening he ran into Paul in the mens bathroom. (see <a href="http://www.macca-central.com/macca-news/morenews.cfm?ID=1414">MACCAnews article</a>)
Hi, Mike. Tonight was deja Vu all over again. Same theater, a lot of the same people (Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Olivia Harrison). Unfortunately, I had class (I run the LA School of Rock http://www.hollywoodrockacademy.com
) so could not make it...but my girlfriend could and told me the following:
Eric Idle (Monty Python) and actress Tea Leoni (Deep Impact) introduced the film.
Dhani Harrison, Billy Preston and others , including an ex Beatle (no, not Paul, he's on tour....) playing live outside the theater. They played "is'nt It A Pity" and "Here Comes the Sun".
The George Harrison UNICEf Fund was officially launched at the screening.
An AMAZING gift bag was made availabe that includes: - The Special Edition DVD - The remastered and repackaged CD - Very cool color postcards of the show - A collectable bag - Little chocolate pumpkins.
It's the little touches, you know.... So, once again, sounds like a great time was had by all. I'll see if she has any pics too post in the morning. I still check you website EVERY morning with my coffee. Keep it up - I love it, and you're doing a great job.
All the best, Matt Wilczynski
