James posted this info few hours ago on his Facebook and Twitter accounts. I can't see if the contest is for U.S. residents only but I tend to think so.

I'm filming a concert for PBS 'Front and Center' in New York on 16th September and have 10 pairs of tickets to give away!

Just email BluntIridiumTix@gmail.com with your full name, contact & zip code for your chance to win. We’ll announce winners on Thursday 12th.

Few more info about 'Front and Center' TV show on PBS. You can see past shows with other artists on their Youtube channel. Gives a little idea of the venue and setting.

I'm still not sure if the contest is for U.S. residents only but Canadian fans have nothing to lose in sending an email to enter the competition.

Holy.  Mother.  Of.  God.  THE DEED IS DONE.

 

Thanks to you James, I'll be a raving insomniac over the next 6 days until I find out the results !

 

Good Luck To ALL of US. 

 

Whichever way the bottle spins around, I will always be an avid supporter of PBS (started off my support in childhood by watching "Sesame Street" on PBS and then just guess who appeared on an episode, singing about triangles, early in his career?). 

 

And I now know there's a "hot date" etched in my calendar in the very near future with James, my armchair and PBS.  Hey, we each have our own definition of a ménage a trois

 

 

Billy, it falls upon your shoulders to keep us posted about the broadcast date of this episode of "Front & Center" . . . .

Tomorrow night! I won't be there... sniff! sniff!... but I know a very happy woman who will. As Cinetheque said, at least I have a rendez-vous with my armchair when the show will be aired on PBS.

The announcement said the winners were going to be contacted on Thursday 12th. Obviously, it was not the case since the winners list was posted on The Iridium Facebook page this morning. That's a very short delay before the event, something like 11 hours. Actually, such a short delay that some winners had to give up on their tickets. Weird!

Oh Stella!

So happy you went! Must have been magical!

Did you see Kathy and Annie? Hope they made it.

Sad though for some of the winners finding out last minute and couldn't make it. I would have been livid!

I agree with Stella, the show was out of this world. Very intimate setting, looked like maybe 150 people.

James and the boys looked happy to be up there performing some old favourites and some new gems .... my new favourite song is Blue on Blue and I can't wait to hear it again.

The set-list was 15 songs and they played 16 (Heart to Heart was played twice because, as James said, he messed up - well he used another word but you get the gist).

We were not allowed to use any camera, cellphone or video. I was surprised that some photos were posted above

Thank you to The Iridium for the tickets. We won our tickets on Facebook, not through the email contest and only found out the morning of the show that we had won. It was a mad dash getting our bags ready and driving from Montreal to New York City in time for the gig, but worth every moment.

Thank you James for my most memorable concert to date (and this was #30). I'm looking forward to seeing the concert again on PBS and until then I will relive it in my mind and in my heart.

Hopefully we will have more details on the air-date soon.

Kathy

Sounds fantastic pookey and how great to see you on here. Must have been some concert for you to rate it so highly out of 30 you have attended. James seems to be on the best form ever

Wow only finding out on the morning of the concert must have been mad but great

It sounds like an incredible show. How lucky that you got to hear new songs, too! Wowzers. That is just brilliant. So happy for you.

So...is this PBS show going to be broadcast for all to see or is it a special thing or what? As usual, I'm lost.

Pookey, after all these years, you should know that we are both very different types of fans. It doesn't make one of us better than the other. I'm always careful of the pictures I post here. All the pictures posted were from official Iridium accounts with the exception of 4 Instagram pictures that were publicly posted under the tag 'james blunt'. If there had been something wrong with the Instagram pictures, I know that Billy would have deleted them. This guy is doing a very good job here you know.

I spotted all the pictures Jbfan posted on offical pages too, very public photos. Now I'm a bit paranoid to post anymore pictures from this event, seems a bit touchy.

That's great news, JBFAN! Thank you for the update.

Now, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one of the two PBS stations I get here will broadcast this ….

Few pictures from "frontandcentertv" photo gallery on Flickr, including the set list!

Still don't know when the recording will be aired on PBS... maybe when James comes to the U.S.A. on tour in May???

Episode listings:

http://aptonline.org/catalog.nsf/vEpiDescIDNumber/30558

Front And Center III (Season 3)
#303 - James Blunt
The British singer-songwriter and five-time Grammy nominee showcases his raw, direct and emotionally honest lyrics, including his hits “You’re Beautiful,” “Goodbye My Lover” and “Same Mistake,” as well as songs from his fourth studio album, Moon Landing.

SHOP
This series is not available on DVD.


Where to watch? http://aptonline.org/catalog.nsf/vLinkTitle/FRONT+AND+CENTER+III

That's the last answer to find. So far, I only get a message saying "Not in schedule now. Please check back later".

Just trying to use deduction: Season 3 starts in New York on Sunday April 13th at midnight with The Avett Brothers (episode #301). James will be in the 3rd episode of season 3 (episode #303). I think his performance could be broadcast on Sunday April 27th which happen to be right when he will be touring in Canada and USA.
