FRONT row seats for cutting edge HD live 5:1 Dolby Digital Sound broadcast across UK.  Vue Cinemas are giving Genesis fans the unique chance to see their heroes perform on stage broadcasting the band’s sold out Düsseldorf gig live across the UK.

Thanks to Vue, disappointed fans who missed out on tickets for the sell out ‘Turn it on Again’ world tour will get front row seats for the 27 June set. Over 11,000 seats are available at more than 40 cinemas from Aberdeen to London’s West End for £10-£25 each. HD quality images and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, mixed live by Nick Davis the band’s Producer, will immerse Vue audiences in the excitement and atmosphere of the event as it happens. Fans will be treated to the added bonus of exclusive access all areas footage with a pre-show behind the scenes feature. All this in the comfort and luxury of spacious, stadium seating conveniently located at local multiplexes.

The live broadcast is the first from multiple UK wide cinemas and has been made possible by Vue, Genesis and Dolby in partnership. It follows Vue’s previous limited but highly successful public and private screenings of music from Queen, Green Day, Pink Floyd, Morrissey and Live 8. Vue is planning a pioneering programme of future live simulcasts to include international football matches, major music concerts and interactive gaming exhibitions. Tickets for Genesis go on sale imminently and can be purchased at or by calling 08712 240 240 or directly from participating cinemas.

Mark de Quervain, Sales and Marketing Director for Vue Entertainment said:- “This is an exciting development for Vue and a great new offer for our customers that we think will be a big hit.

It’s a statement of Vue’s intent to deliver an increasing variety of programming that will reinforce our position as an entertainment destination of choice for people across the UK with the added bonus of the comfort and facilities of our state-of-the-art cinemas.

We’re delighted to launch this new offering with Genesis, one of the UK’s finest rock acts, because they appreciate and support the pioneering approach that we’re bringing to local audiences and our aim to diversify our entertainment offering.

We hope to continue this programming in future to achieve regular music screening events, both live and pre recorded to the public by working with talented groups and bands, music companies and promoters to Vue’s screens nationwide.”

An on-site mobile recording studio will bring the band’s live set in Düsseldorf to the big screens of Vue cinemas in the UK creating a faultless audio-visual experience. The Dolby Digital surround sound mix includes extra microphones dotted around the LTU Arena to capture the full atmosphere of the crowd and an array of state-of-the-art speakers in each Vue cinema to ensure fans are wrapped up in a full surround soundtrack.

Tony Smith, Genesis’ Manager said:- "Given that many people couldn't get tickets as the shows in Twickenham and Old Trafford sold out in two hours, this gives us a unique opportunity to reach many disappointed fans throughout the UK.

With the help of Vue's technology we hope to be able to bring the fans a unique live experience in their local theatres.

We are really looking forward to our appearance in Düsseldorf, for it will be here where we will be playing to a combined potential audience of over 100,000 in Germany and the UK”.
