Gaiman’s Last Angel Ascends New Heights

First, an apology on being so behind on clippings. Suffice to say that there have been mentions of Good Omens and the Death movie everywhere from the Hollywood Reporter to Cinescape.com to SFX

Enough from me…this is from a press release from the CBLDF.

NEIL GAIMAN’s LAST ANGEL TOUR reaches its conclusion this week with a reading TONIGHT in PORTLAND, OR and another in LOS ANGELES on OCTOBER 26. Gaiman, who read to sold-out theatres in Chicago and New York last week, was enthusiastic about this, his final tour. “It’s really been the best Guardian Angel Tour ever,” he said. “I’m having a good time road-testing different parts of “AMERICAN GODS,” as well as digging out some old favorites. And the receptions have been wonderful. It’s great to meet so many dedicated fans and CBLDF Members.” All proceeds from the Last Angel Tour benefit the nonprofit COMIC BOOK LEGAL DEFENSE FUND and help protect the First Amendment rights of the comics community.

The Last Angel Tour features Gaiman giving dramatic readings from his work, including short stories, poems, passages from his novels, as well as a few surprises. Gaiman has been performing a completely different set for each stop of the tour, unveiling many new pieces and bringing out some Guardian Angel Tour standards for a final reading. The highlight of each event has been the extended passages from Gaiman’s forthcoming novel, “American Gods.” Gaiman also takes time during the evening to answer questions from the audience. Each reading is preceded by a private cocktail RECEPTION with the author open to CBLDF Members and Premium Ticket holders.

Tickets are available for Gaiman’s final tour stop at the WRITERS’ GUILD THEATRE in LOS ANGELES on Thursday, OCTOBER 26. Demand for tickets for the tour’s finale was so high that the event was RECENTLY MOVED to the Writers’ Guild Theatre from the smaller Pacific Design enter. All tickets purchased for the Pacific Design Center will be honored at the new venue. The move to a larger theatre means that additional tickets, both Premium and General Admissiontickets, are now available.

Tickets can be purchased from TICKETMASTER by calling 213-480-3232 or by visiting http://www.ticketmaster.com

General Admission ticket holders who would like to upgrade to Premium Tickets may do so by requesting a refund from Ticketmaster for the original ticket, and then purchasing a new Premium Ticket.

The Writers’ Guild Theatre is located at 135 South Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills, just over a mile from the event’s original venue. The reception begins at 6:00 pm, but the reading itself has been pushed back to 8:30 to allow for extra travel time and for a slightly longer reception.
