I think we'll just have to hope someone uploads it, but maybe for people in the UK it may be on E4 or 4music maybe, as they had it last year and NME said it would be on tonight at 9 on E4, but the TV guide doesn't see it that way.

Big Gig airs two days early

Remember that Big Gig special that was supposed to air on the NME channel this Friday? Yeah, it actually aired tonight. Here's a report: "NME Big Gig was on tonight, opened with Underneath The Stars and also played Shake Dog Shake, The Only One, Just Like Heaven, The Hungry Ghost, One Hundred Years, It's Over, 10:15 Saturday Night, Killing An Arab.


Also some great interview pieces with Robert, a couple of White Lies & Franz Ferdinand and 2 from Crystal Castles (unfortunately). It was on NME TV Channel 382 (UK Sky) - 2 days early - they always seem to muddle up the listings on music channels!" (Thanks Marc.)

Update: "According to today's NME which has an advert about it, its also on:
Thursday 5th - 11PM
Friday 6th - 12PM and 10PM
Saturday 7th - 5 PM
Sunday 8th - 3PM and 12AM
Monday 9th - 11AM and 8PM
Tuesday 10th - 4PM and 12AM"
(Thanks Beau, AndrewV127, and Marc.)

Watched the O2 show on NME TV last night - actually a goood programme, featuring interviews with RS throughout the show, almost a narration of the event. Interesting insights into Roberts passion for a good live show and an appreciation of the fans perspective.

It turns out that he wanted the original set to be two songs off each album - infact this is what was rehersed on the Saturday prior to the gig - it took 2hrs 36min to play - so too long for the event/public transport. I wonder what the second song from "the top" could have been with the current line-up????! It also appeared evident that the final setlist was not agreed until the very last minute, with the kiss and lullaby almost making the set to represent their respective albums.

I'm sure bits of the programme will get onto youtube etc, or some brighter person than I will have worked out a way to upload it to the net.

One video has appeared on the NME website - http://www.nme.com/video and click on the one about the 'Shockwaves Big Gig' (or scroll down for the direct link). It's only one song - It's Over - and quite bad quality audio but it's a start

This sounds rock :rocker

By the way, someone at dimeadozen says that he recorded the video, so is just a question of time until it surfaces.

hopefully. i'd like to see an enjoyable version - the sound on that nme link is unfortunately almost unlistenably bad and artifacted.
