Satellite News today.
We will be recording 2 NEW LIVE DVDs, September 15-17th at the Parkway Theatre in Mpls, MN. Tickets for our 3 night stand (We’ll be performing the newly refreshed “Doomsday Machine” too) will be on sale soon – check in at our website for info!
We’ll be filming both “War of the Insects” and “Rattlers” and we plan to release the first of the two DVDs in November. We’ve heard from so many people who have been anxious for new shows, we appreciate your patience and continued interest in CT.
Finally, new DVD's are coming! I'm really looking foward to watching them.
Also on the CT front, their live tour will be coming near me next spring. They are going to be in Schenectady, NY on Feburary 4, 2012. That is only a 3 hour drive from where I currently live. Me and some of my friends are planning a group trip to see the Titans live in person. I can not wait.
I am probably in the minority, but I have really become disenchanted with CT. It is bad enough that all they do is tour 90% of the time, but even when they release their rare DVD, it is now always a live show.
Sorry, but when I buy RT or CT material, I am not buying it so that I can here idiots in the audience laugh or add moronic comments. I buy it to hear the riffing and to see a really bad flick.
Since CT is pretty much a road show nowadays and with RT always being a hit or miss affair, I suppose it not surprising that we started our own project. And to be honest, I think a good percentage of the time, our material is superior to RT's stuff.
OK, enough venting. :crow:
WOO-HOO - this is great news! Thanks for sharing. And I personally like the audience, they add to my enjoyment (I love my live comedy albums for example. The sound of the audience laughter always make it better for me)
I still adore CT - even if I have to wait for product. :thumbsup:
Do not get me wrong. They are covering some really bad stuff and the riffing overall by CT is very good. Certainly of a more consistent quality then you get with RT, which is always a 50-50 success/failure rate. (if that high)
I just prefer a studio setting. I do not think that MST3K would have been half as good if it has been done in front an audience. I suppose they are doing it this way, (touring and releasing live versions of their DVDs) because they make more money. After all, by doing mainly live shows and only releasing only one DVD per year, they are losing a LOT less money via pirating then RT does.
