Nashville, Tenn. (May 14, 2020) -- Curb | Word Entertainment artist Sidewalk Prophets announces their unparalleled "virtual tour" live stream in anticipation of their The Things That Got Us Here album release. 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, and a complete high definition multimedia experience, 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!"
Partnering with Thrivent, a member owned financial services organization that serves Christians and their families, fans will be excited to hear there is no charge to watch the virtual tour, they just need to register for a ticket, with only one ticket per household being needed. "We'd like to thank Thrivent for partnering with us on this virtual 3D journey as we blaze a trail in reaching out to all our fans," shares the band's manager, Benjamin McDonald.
The tour will utilize a new radius checking system that will grant ticket access to those who live within zip code radius of each show in each market. Those who are outside the show radius will have the chance to purchase an "out-of-radius" pass or a season pass to view all live stream events. A VIP Preshow Party ticket option is also available and includes an interactive experience with the band before the show, as well as a limited edition signed poster. All shows will take place at 7:00 PM local time. Tickets became available via sidewalkprophets.com starting at 8:00 PM CST on Thursday, May 7, 2020. Exclusive tour merchandise will also be available in the "virtual lobby" before and after the show.
As previously announced, the band rescheduled their sold-out headlining debut at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, originally scheduled for March 22, 2020. The "Great Big Family Reunion" 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.
