It’s the first show of the season and we’re all invited.
The 2016 Drum Corps International season starts off where it will also end, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Fortunately, for those of us who need our early season drum corps fix but don’t live way back home in Indiana, DCI and Fathom Events are bringing the show to the big screen.
Continuing the tradition of showcasing drum corps in movie theaters, the 2016 DCI Tour Premiere will be broadcast live to theaters across the country on Thursday, June 23rd. Six of the top drum corps in the world will lead off the 2016 competitive season. The show begins at 8:30 PM Eastern.
I will once again be reviewing the cinecast for Drum Corps World, making observations on the event and broadcast, including the behind the scenes content and vignettes shown between performances. Unlike previous years, I will also review the performances of the night as well.
If you’ll be attending the cinecast at the Regal Montrose Movies 12 cinema in Montrose (Akron), Ohio, be sure to find me and say hello. I will be wearing my Drum Corps Planet staff shirt so I’ll be easy to find.
Here we go!
