(Los Angeles, CA) – Ridgeline Entertainment, lead by Emmy Award Winner Doug Stanley, has partnered with South Africa’s top selling rock band, The Parlotones, to broadcast a live, multi-platform 3D/2D event simultaneously to cinemas, televisions and the internet. Dragonflies and Astronauts is a rock theatre event that weaves a narrative through The Parlotones 16 top 40 hits in South Africa. It will be broadcast LIVE in 3D on DIRECTV’s 3D channel, n3D, powered by Panasonic in the United States, and live on 3D in Nu Metro Cinemas across South Africa. The event will also be available live in 2D on DIRECTV, YouTube and Facebook for fans across the globe to watch.
The performance will broadcast from the Teatro at Montecasino at 4:00pm EST/1:00pm PST on Saturday, July 16th on DIRECTV channels 103 in 3D and 239 in 2D, on The Parlotones YouTube page at www.youtube.com/theparlotones, and on the band’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/theparlotones.
“Our team at Ridgeline Entertainment has been working very hard with the Parlotones, Sovereign Entertainment and the extremely creative minds at Catalyst Entertainment in order to bring Dragonflies and Astronauts to fruition. It is an honor to be able to present Dragonflies and Astronauts in both 2D and in stunning 3D exclusively through DIRECTV. Their unique broadcast platform is the only way that we could have accomplished this 3D/2D dual format simulcast,” says Executive Producer Doug Stanley.
The Parlotones will support Coldplay during their South African tour this fall, and return to America for additional headlining tour dates in October. Live Design, the live cd/dvd combo from their sold out performance at the 20,000-capacity Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg, is now available in the U.S.
