On Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 over fifty of Delaware’s best and brightest musicians came together to “Shine a Light on the Queen” and present an unforgettable sold out evening full of Rolling Stones music to benefit the Light Up The Queen Foundation. The LUQ Foundation is a Delaware non-profit corporation dedicated to the revival of The Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delaware, and to assuring that The Queen becomes a catalyst for building community by engaging diverse populations through high quality programs in music, education, workforce development and mentoring. The ongoing mission of LUQ is to offer music enrichment programs to local schools and non-profit organizations that lack funding for music and arts with special focus to at risk children and the special needs community. Since April 2011, more than 3,000 local students have been served by LUQ Outreach Music Education Programs. Each and every song featured a different lineup of the area’s most talented, influential and prominent musicians from each generation. “Shine a Light on the Queen” was not just a celebration of The Rolling Stones, but also of the people who have played locally in Wilmington for decades and have worked tirelessly to support the LUQ Foundation. The show was indeed one for the books…
So of course we’re doing it again.
Be the first to hear the when, where, why and how as the Shine a Light crew announces next year’s date and show details and screen The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas. Some Girls is a never-seen-before Stones concert movie which captures this world famous band at the height of their musical career. It opens with a Sir Mick Jagger interview filmed in August 2011 where he introduces the concert and offers an insight into its significance in the band’s history.
Featuring many Stones classics including Honky Tonk Woman, Tumbling Dice, Brown Sugar, Jumpin Jack Flash, Miss You and Beast of Burden, the film was shot on 16mm at Fort Worth, Texas in 1978 and has been upgraded to high definition with a 5.1 audio track thanks to SpectiCast. SpectiCast’s Digital Theater Network delivers the highest quality audiovisual digital experience that exists today. Paired with The Queen’s state of the art sound system, restaurant’s delectable offerings and wide bar selections, this is one totally unique dining and film experience in downtown Wilmington!
