Show featuring Musical Concerts At Historic Landmarks Announced
City Drive Films has announced that they have begun production on a Television series that will feature performances by some of the hottest musical acts today at famous historic landmarks around the world. The series, called Landmarks Live In Concert will be hosted by Chad Smith, drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Joining Smith will be legendary MTV V-Jay, radio personality, and Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame Honoree Matt Pinfield.
The series will feature performances by the artist or band in either a full blown concert setting or more of a intimate production depending on the location. Some episodes have already been filmed with more in pre-production. Artists that have been confirmed to be participating so far include will.i.am who performed at Royal Albert Hall in London, Alicia Keys in New York City, and Brad Paisley at West Virginia University. Paisley’s concert will be taking place on September 9, 2016 and will not only be featured on the Landmarks Live In Concert series but will also be released on DVD and CD in time for this Christmas season.
Landmarks Live In Concert, produced by veteran showrunner Dan Catullo, is set to feature not only musical performances. There will be up close and personal artist interviews. Also featured will be lifestyle and travel segments with tours and history of the locations featured that all tie in with the music.
“Working on Landmarks with Dan and the City Drive team to create a new Series which focuses on the stories, not just the performances is something that I’m truly excited about. Landmarks is a real collaboration between a unique creative team and artists that will certainly change how music shows are approached,” says the drummer / host about working on the new series.
The Landmarks show seems to be approaching a concert series in a new and exciting way. The focus on the unique locations and how they tie in with and have influenced the artists is a fresh idea that could breath new life into the sometimes stale concept of putting a bad on a stage and filming it. With the prominence of concert recordings on Youtube and Vimeo, it takes a bit more to catch most viewers attention and City Drive Films might just have figure out the special sauce to make it happen.
Landmarks Live In Concert is set to premier this Fall, although the complete list of artists and broadcast network have yet to be announced.
