Clutch have announced that they will headline a live streamed concert, ‘Live From The Doom Saloon Volume 1’, on 27 May, with support from Crowbar, Blacktop Mojo, and Saul. Produced in conjunction with Sound Talent Group (STG) and LiveFrom Events the promise is to use cutting edge technology to close the distance between bands and fans and it promises to be an amazing virtual concert experience.
Frontman Neil Fallon told Metaltalk: “Over the past weeks, Clutch has been streaming very short sets on our YouTube channel. We are excited to announce that we will be playing a much longer set and teaming up with Crowbar, Blacktop Mojo, and Saul for a virtual four-band bill.
“Doors are at 8:30PM, Saul goes on at 9PM, followed by Blacktop Mojo at 9:35PM and Crowbar at 10:10PM. Clutch’s set will start at approximately 10:55PM. All times are British Summer Time. Have a beer in your pyjamas!”
Tim Borror, from STG, told MetalTalk “Sound Talent Group has been working with both CLUTCH and LiveFrom for the last few weeks to come up with a new spin on how to do live stream shows. Collectively we programmed this show to be a full night of entertainment, similar to how you would go to a concert normally. More than one band, a night of music, full band performances. We think this is going to be special and hopefully the first of many.”
Alan Rakov, LiveFrom Media, added “Live Streaming is a fundamentally new ingredient in the artist and fan relationship that’s here to stay. Creating a sustainable streaming strategy for an artist requires planning, partnerships and technology and we are thrilled to be working again with Clutch and Sound Talent Group to bring this show to fans globally.”
Steve Machin, LiveFrom Media continued: “The creation of new distribution channels and formats allow artists to develop deeper relationships with their audience. We believe quality productions of collaborative, multi-artist events will benefit the entire ecosystem – from headliners to support to openers – while providing amazing value and a new live experience to fans.”
