WLRN in South Florida has scheduled it for Saturday night, June 2nd at 10:00 PM. (It being the Tower of Song tribute concert)

UPDATE: Here is the information from the American Public Television network. You can check if the broadcast is coming soon in your area. It looks like the network has the broadcast rights until 6/30/2020. So, it might be awhile for some of us. It seems this broadcast is only 1 hour long.

In the USA PBS has an "Exclusive" DVD release of the concert that they are giving away as a thank you gift if you make a donation of $120.00 which can be paid all at once or spread out over 12 monthly payments of $10.00 The description of it says it has bonus footage of LC in Greece, a 1960s interview segment, and unreleased performance footage from Dublin and New Zealand. Here a link to the listing for it on a PBS station local to Philadelphia PA: https://www.callswithoutwalls.com/pledg ... rce=#/home
The top of the page lists it as a featured gift for $19 a month that also comes with the CD/DVD set of the Dublin concert but you can get the Tower of Song DVD gift alone for a $10 a month gift which is listed on page 12

FYI: I saw a tweet tonight which complimented Rex Sexsmith's version of Suzanne during the PBS broadcast of the Tower of Song tribute concert. The two hour telecast on CBC a few months back did not include Rex Sexsmith. So it's possible this one-hour version has some different material.

As far as I can see it can only be delivered to the USA or Canada. If there is a way of the DVD to be delivered outside USA/Canada please let me know.

Hi, Mimi and felows,
Does someone know why some songs did not appear in that video on YouTube? And why the DVD is not on sale?
Excuse me, but I´m so far away - in Brazil - and it was impossible to be in Canada to see the concert...
Regards,
