To celebrate Carson Beckett and to demonstrate our passion for restoring the character to Atlantis, we at SaveCarsonBeckett.com have organized a public event to take place outside Bridge Studios in Burnaby, BC, Canada, where Stargate Atlantis is filmed.
On Thursday, March 22nd from 12:30 – 2:00 pm, fans will gather to celebrate and hear the world-class Scottish Pipe Band, The Highland Celts of Canada. The group will play traditional pipe band tunes including “The Dark Isle,” the song played in the episode Sunday during Carson’s memorial. But don’t fret, there will be happier selections as well!
This event is being publicized now to the press in Canada, the US, and the UK. In fact, inquiries about it have already been made at the production offices, as indicated by Joe Mallozzi’s latest blog entry, a particularly hilarious one.
Neither fans nor “powers that be” should worry. Our event will be a legal, peaceful, positive demonstration of fans’ love for Carson and his importance to the show as the “Heart of Atlantis.” In fact we invite Joe and his colleagues to come say hello and enjoy the music along with fans.
If you’re going to be in Vancouver for the Stargate convention the following weekend, we invite you to make your way to Burnaby on Thursday the 22nd to show your support for Carson and for Paul and to enjoy a lovely concert as well. Polite, peaceful behavior will be insisted upon, of course. If you can’t be there, don’t worry, there will be ample video and photos published right here soon after the event.
