Hi folks,

Kim asked me to post a few news updates here on her behalf.

Cheers,

Dave

- iCon has withdrawn from the Shrewsbury festival in August. Sorry, but no more details are available at this time.

- URBAN PSALM is the new Wetton Downes' Icon DVD, recorded at St Mary-Le-Bow Church in the City of London, on the evening of February 21,2009.The DVD is currently being edited and will be mixed in August, after the Asia USA tour.

A special limited edition of the DVD, signed by John and Geoff, will be sent to each member of the audience who attended the concert--many from around the globe--- on that special winter's night.

Joining Messrs Wetton and Downes on the chequer board stage were David Kilminster, Pete Riley, Hugh McDowell and Anne-Marie Helder, and the ensemble explored Icon present as well as legacy songs from John and Geoff's careers dating back over 30 years.

We are printing 1000 only of the limited edition, each one being numbered and signed, featuring a special booklet, liner notes and a one-off bonus CD of icon in Japan.  Commercially, the Urban Psalm CD will be available, date to be confirmed, and the DVD will be generally available some months after that..

Bummer on the festival, but I am sure there was a good reason.

Very cool on the DVD front!  Sooooooooooo 1000 copies made and how many in the audience that night?  Can a kaveman obtain one of the limited edition copies?  Please?

"Urban Psalm" -- psensational title!  Cannot wait to see the artwork for a title like that...

Is there going to be the option to pre-pay for the iCon dvd? 1000 of them doesn't seem like a lot and I think they'll probably sell out fast.

MK -- just looked back at the news archives and there were only 200 tickets available for the St. Mary-Le-Bow show. So hopefully all of us here who want to get our hands on a copy will be able to.

I'm hoping there is a pre-order option too.

Thanks Elstree for the update.    I am saving my pennies for this one, indeed!
