As preparations for the Batman Live UK and Ireland Arena Tour continues to gather pace, I’m getting more than a little bit excited to see the likes of Two Face, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy up close and personal. Kicking off in Manchester in July 19 and finishing off with four shows at the Odyssey in Belfast in October (full dates are available via www.batmanlive.com) it looks like no expense has been spared on the show and I think hiring Young Avengers/Wonder Woman scribe Allan Heinberg to handle scripting duties will turn out to be a masterstroke.
Today they’ve released images of the Batmobile that will be used for the extravaganza and I reckon it looks ace. Have a look and see what you think-
Sticking with Batman Live for a bit, I get a lot of visitors on my blog who want to know what the “Gotham City Seats” are. Basically, the production features a scaled down version of Gotham City right in front of the stage (in addition to the giant video screens and sets and what have you). The stage is like a “T” shape and the Gotham seats are right in front of these buildings, so you’re beside all the action. I’ll stick up a diagram/images from the show once I get ’em.
