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.

I listened to CBC2 this morning in Beijing and (of course) recorded the 2-hour special programme. My ears tell me that the concert is speechless beautiful. My eyes are looking forward to CBC tele on 3 Jan, 2018.


PS: Anyone who went to live have got good memory to write down the whole setlist? Thx

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,

Well I've watched all the You tube videos of this Memorial concert. Certainly doesn't look like it will ever be released on DVD or Blueray. Although its a mixed bag of performances its definitely worth owning. KD Lang does an incredible performance along with others. It seems the current management of LC feel Youtube is good enough as do many other musicians these days. Mark Knopfler's current world tour is in the same camp with unofficial performances filmed live in concert available on Youtube. Mark has not released any live performance video recordings since "Real Live Roadrunning" with Emmylou Harris some 13 years ago. We are thankful that Leonard did release live video when he was alive.

All round disappointing especially for those unable to attend these great concerts.

Agreed - the CBC tv show probably bootlegged by now was excellent but missed some key moments - especially Sharon Robinson filling in at the last minute to do I'm Your Man - she was awesome! and Sting doing Anthem should have been the finale!

Not having Sharon's performance included is just unspeakably wrong.
