Steven Wilson's 'Get All You Deserve' World premiere screening in London

The world premiere of Get All You Deserve, a new concert film from Steven Wilson will take place at the Prince Charles cinema at London’s Leicester Square on September 6th at 7.30pm.

Directed by long-time visual collaborator Lasse Hoile, Get All You Deserve was filmed in Mexico City during the recent Grace For Drowning Tour. The film is part of a new high definition audio-visual set which captures the spectacular live experience that Wilson and Hoile created for the tour on Blu-ray, DVD and 2CD.

Following the screening there will be a Q&A session where Steven will be available to answer questions from the audience about the film. Tickets for the screening are available from the cinema website for £12 (plus 75p booking fee).

Grace For Drowning was the second album released under Wilson’s own name, following 2009’s exceptionally well-receivedInsurgentes. The album, released in September 2011, entered the UK top 40 album chart at #34, both the Dutch and German national charts at #22, the US Billboard Rock album chart at #19 (#13 in independent chart) and debuted at #7 in the Polish national charts.

Following the release of Grace For Drowning, Steven embarked on his first ever solo tour, assembling a virtuoso band, featuring Marco Minnemann (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Theo Travis (flute and sax), Adam Holzman (keys) and Niko Tsonev (guitars), to accompany him. For the shows he worked extensively with Lasse to create a show unlike nothing else that he had ever done with his other bands, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No-Man or Bass Communion.

The shows submerged fans in a rich sensory experience: rear speakers provide surround-sound effects, giant screens show off Lasse’s films made specifically to accompany these songs, and cutting-edge lighting designs giving texture to each song.

Get All You Deserve captures one of the highlight shows from the tour. Recorded at a sold-out Teatro MetropĂłlitan in Mexico City, the gig features tracks from both Wilson’s solo albums along with the new, as yet unreleased, track Luminol.

The limited deluxe edition of the 4 disc set (Blu-ray, DVD & 2CD) is packaged in a DVD sized hard-back 40 page book. It is now available to pre-order from the Kscope store for the early-bird price of £24.99 (+ P&P).

Standard retail editions (stand alone DVD and Blu-ray plus 4disc set) will also be in stores from September 24th.
