Swedish hard rock act Eclipse have announced they will be streaming a special live online concert from Stockholm tonight (1 April 2020 – 7pm BST). Utilising a full production team, it promises to be a evening high on audio and visual quality.
Lead singer Erik Martensson tells us: ”In the last few weeks we have had to cancel shows in Japan, Australia, Spain, the UK and a bunch of other places, so we started talking about what options we had. We could, of course, set up a phone in our rehearsal space and stream a gig from there, but to be honest so could anyone else.
“We wanted to do something really special, so have joined forces with a team of professional broadcast producers to be able to deliver a unique live experience complete with multiple HD cameras and grade A sound, produced on the fly!
”We have tried to keep ticket prices as low as possible. For 8 Euros we feel we can deliver awesome value to fans and at the same time make sure the production team gets compensated fairly.
Musicians are not the only line of professionals getting hit big time by this freaking virus.”
Guitarist Magnus Henriksson added: ”I am really excited! Playing a show in front of cameras only will be a completely new experience for us. I guess the only thing we know for certain is that there will be no crowdsurfing! We are taking the opportunity to perform a few songs we rarely play, but more importantly we will also play our brand new single that is yet to be released!”
