Metalcore band Underoath are the latest artist to do something more involved with livestreaming.
Underoath: Observatory is a series of three concerts, each of which will see the band playing one of their albums in full, from a venue in Florida. Tickets for each show cost $15, while a three-show ticket bundle is $45.
However, each show also has the option of an ‘Elite’ ticket for $45, which adds an exclusive t-shirt, and a ‘Platinum’ ticket for $70, which adds the t-shirt and a vinyl copy of the album being played that night. Finally, there’s a $140 ‘All Access 3 Show Bundle’ which includes the t-shirt and all three vinyl albums.
The first concert was on Friday night (17 July) with the others scheduled for 24 July and 31 July. Whatever ticket fans buy, they’ll be able to rewatch the livestreams until the end of August.
Revolver has an interview with the band about the series, which builds on a series of Twitch livestreams during lockdown that saw the band listening to their old albums and chatting about them for fans.
