Remember The Alamo Concert, a concert film from the Wonders of the World Music Series, featuring Gipsy Kings, Los Lobos, Lyle Lovett, Arc Angels and host, Paul Rodriguez, to be shown exclusively in Carmike Theaters on July 31 st.
Wow Music Group, through its Wonders of the World music series, announces the theatrical release of Remember The Alamo concert—an exclusive, limited-theatrical release through Carmike theaters featuring the groundbreaking concert filmed at The Alamo with performances by Lyle Lovett, the Gipsy Kings, Los Lobos, the Arc Angels, and Paul Rodriguez.
The Remember The Alamo concert was designed to pay tribute to the Alamo and the City of San Antonio through an entertaining, made-for-history musical event. The concert film, via performances by some of the world’s best-known artists and light-hearted comedic entertainment by Paul Rodriguez, retells the story of the 13-day battle that took place in 1836, thus solidifying the Alamo shrine as an historical wonder of early American culture.
The 90-plus minute concert film includes a documentary about the Alamo and an historical tour of the shrine led by Alamo Director David Stewart and Paul Rodriguez.
“We are thrilled with the end result of this film and are excited about the exposure that the Alamo and San Antonio will receive as a result of this product,” said Virginia Van Cleave,
Chairman of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Alamo Committee. “Merging musical entertainment of this caliber with the history of the Alamo provides us with an innovative way to reach existing and new audiences to share the message of courage and sacrifice for the cause of Liberty that the Alamo Defenders so bravely represented.”
The spirit, sights, and sounds of San Antonio also were captured during the concert’s filming and are interspersed throughout the broadcast through shots and commentary about sites and events such as the Riverwalk, the Menger Hotel, and Fiesta.
Remember The Alamo concertwas filmed in San Antonio on May 2, 2005 as part of WOW Music Group’s Wonders of the World Music Series—a collection of concerts that unites performances by distinguished musical artists with the world’s most storied historical sites.
