  1. Hi, this looks AMAZING and I’m looking forward to checking it out! Just trying to be clear about the start time…so this means 8:00 PM Cairo time, correct? Which would be (I think?) 2 PM Eastern (US), 1 PM Central, 12 Noon Mountain, 11 AM California time on March 13? Just want to tune in and not miss it – thanks much!

    1. I don’t think it’s gonna be live broadcasted for commercial reasons as it will be held before RHCP’s main concert in Egypt on March 15th.

    2. Hi Greg! Thanks for your comment. The event is happening in Cairo at 8pm Cairo time, but it will not be live on Drum Channel that night. It is being filmed for us to be aired at a later date (which we are very excited about). We will be sure to alert everyone about it’s big DC debut. Thanks for being part of our DC family! Can’t wait to bring our subscribers Chad in Egypt! Stay tuned…
