Red Rocks Recorded for Nov. Broadcast

By Waldo Jaquith
A press release on the website of audio equipment LightViper promotes the usage of their product at the band's four-night stay at Red Rocks. The company writes that two of their systems "were shipped overnight and immediately deployed by television production company, HDReady, for an eleventh-hour Dave Matthews Band benefit concert taping at the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver, Colorado." They go on to write that the production company "acquired concert footage over the entire four-day run for a Thanksgiving Day (November 24, 2005) PBS broadcast." It sounds like a similar arrangement to their Sep. 11, 1999 performance, which went on to be broadcast on PBS and released on CD as Listener Supported. Note that the fact that the performances were recorded for broadcast in no way guarantees that they will end up being broadcast. Thanks to Houston for the tip.
