ROXY BAR TV w/ RED RONNIE. 03.05.2015
ROXY BAR TV w/ Red Ronnie
Sunday 3rd May @ Center Gross, Bologna.
Streaming from 8.30pm (Italian)
So we've been invited on Roxy Bar TV.
It's hosted by Red Ronnie, this Sunday night (3rd May).
It's recorded in the Center Gross Studios in Bologna, and seems to have a Jools Holland style of format. I've watched a couple of episodes to get acquainted. I'm doing it solo, and will do a couple of songs, plus there's other stuff that happens during the show. It's on Canale 8 of Twww.tv.
I'm told that because of the on demand nature, the viewership is extremely high in Italy, I'm not even going to type the number, it has ridiculously high viewership. All the biggest names in Italian music do it, as well as people like Bowie, Duran Duran, Fidel Castro (I swear), Rufus Wainwright have done it in the shows history. On this episode, the lineup will be...
ENRICO RUGGERI, GIANMARCO TOGNAZZI, GIOVANNI BAGLIONI, ATTILIO FONTANA, SPAM, UNQUIET NIGHTS (LUKE MATHERS), MARCELLO GIORDANI, ANTONIO PASCUZZO.
So, off to Bologna I go again. Beautiful city. I'm definitely doing "George Best City", which happily is still running on different SKY Italia channels in the final scene of the Federico Buffa Racconta: George Best documentary. The number of broadcasts now is well over 100 and growing still. The other song is probably going to be "Constellations of She" or the as yet unreleased "Don't Wanna Kill For Religion". So, tune in at 8.30pm Italian time on Sunday night at roxybar.tv/roxy-bar.
Also, if you're close enough to Bologna to go, and want to be in the studio audience, that would be amazing. You can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them your name. That's how to do it.
