      Sky 3D & Sky Arts to broadcast Prince’s Trust Rock Gala

      The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2011 supported by Novae TX: Sky 3D and Sky Arts 1 on Christmas Day at 9pm.

      Sky 3D & Sky Arts will broadcast the live recording of this year’s Prince’s Trust Rock Gala, supported by Novae. Boy George, The Feeling and Pete Townshend are among the artists on board to rock the Royal Albert Hall on 23 November. The concert is one of the most important fundraisers in The Prince’s Trust calendar and will premiere on Sky Arts 1 and Sky 3D on Christmas Day at 9pm.

      Joining presenters Edith Bowman and Patrick Kielty are a long list of Prince’s Trust supporters who are set to collaborate at the gala including singer songwriters Chris de Burgh, Julian Lennon, Alison Moyet, rock legends Kenney Jones, Mark King and Midge Ure, urban saxophonist YolanDa Brown and classical music star Charlie Siem. There will also be a special appearance from comedian and musician Tim Minchin.

      This is the tenth Rock Gala Concert in The Trust’s history and marks the second year the concert will be recorded for Sky Arts and Sky 3D. Last year’s Prince’s Trust Rock Gala was one of the inaugural music events to be broadcast in stunning 3D on the Sky platform and will once again take pride of place in Sky’s Christmas schedule.

      Launching in 1982 and continuing until 1990, the gala has attracted the support of iconic well-wishers such as Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and Tina Turner. 2010 saw the historic fundraiser launch again for the first time in 20 years, with appearances from music legends Eric Clapton, Brian May and Phil Collins. The gala concerts raise vital funds for the charity’s work with disadvantaged young people.

      “The Rock Gala is a celebration of the good work of The Prince’s Trust so it is easy to see why it was one of the most popular music programmes on Sky Arts and Sky 3D last year,” comments John Cassy, Director of Sky 3D. “It is an honour to be able to support the work of The Trust again this year using Sky’s innovative 3D technology to broadcast the Rock Gala’s sensational performers to wider audiences.”
