Sidewalk Prophets has announced an innovative “virtual tour” live stream series of events in anticipation of the release of band’s new album, The Things That Got Us. Originally set to release May 22, 2020, The Things That Got Us Here will now be released July 3, 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns.
Pioneering what a virtual live event looks like, the show will include 3D elements in which viewers will need 3D glasses, while still enjoying the show without them. The experience will also include complete high definition multimedia; setting new expectations for live show creativity. Every show will be live, giving the same unique show-to-show experience as a live tour would.
“The past several weeks have been scary and uncertain for many of us, but we believe great things will come from these experiences. Now, more than ever, we need to be proactively pushing back against fear, anxiety, and worry,” shares Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey. “The best way we know how to do that is by using the God-given gift of creativity. We’re excited to creatively deliver a brand-new album, a brand-new type of tour, and most importantly, a message of hope during this time!”
Fans will be excited to hear there is no charge to watch the virtual tour, however they need to register for a ticket, with only one ticket per household is issued.
The band was forced to reschedule their sold-out headlining debut at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, originally scheduled for March 22, 2020. The Great Big Family Reunion Tour was rescheduled for July 5, 2020. All tickets will be honored at the new date. If fans previously registered for the event via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform and can no longer attend, they should log in to their Ticketmaster account to return/cancel their complimentary ticket so that any unused tickets can be claimed by other fans.
