Fozzy Announce Livestream Concert + Pre-Show Documentary Airing

Fall of 2020 is loaded with livestream performances and you can add Fozzy to your list of upcoming shows to catch as they’ve just announced  a livestream gig set for Nov. 14. Airing ahead of the set is a 30-minute documentary, which will be making its world premiere.

The event, dubbed “Capturing Judas,” is a reprieve for Fozzy fans who hoped to catch the group, fronted by wrestling superstar Chris Jericho, on their “Save the World Tour.” The trek was originally postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and rescheduled for the fall, but those dates again had to be pushed.

“After having to postpone our “Save The World Tour” multiple times due to the continuing lockdown, we decided we wanted to do something special for all of our fans worldwide who rocked with us over the past three years on the Judas tour cycle,” exclaimed Jericho.

Beaming with excitement, the singer continued, “So, on November 14, we will be coming at you LIVE without a net, to play some kick ass rock ‘n’ roll for you all! We’re also gonna tell you some fun road stories, have a few drinks and maybe even do some river dancing! So come join us and let’s all celebrate and commemorate the most successful album and tour of Fozzy’s career.”

The livestream will be broadcast at 6PM PT / 9PM ET and 2AM GMT on Nov. 14 and will be available to watch on demand for the following two weeks through Nov. 29. For tickets and more information, head here.

The pre-show will be comprised of the Capturing Judas documentary, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at Oct. 13, 2017 — the day Fozzy played three shows in three different time zones on the same day, traveling by private plane.

Code Orange Announce ‘Back Inside the Glass’ Livestream Concert

Code Orange have made the most of their livestream events in 2020 and will add to that with their upcoming “Back Inside the Glass” all-immersive environmental experiences later this month.

The group will be staging a live show in the center of “awe-inspiring virtual landscapes,” providing a unique backdrop for their performance. The virtual event will take place on Oct. 31 at 4PM ET / 1PM PT.

In addition, fans will enjoy sets from special guests Machine Girl, Year of the Knife (playing their Internal Incarceration album in full) and Jesus Piece.

Tickets for Code Orange’s “Back Inside the Glass,” including VIP packages with special virtual fan experiences where viewers can be digitally projected into the venue, are currently on sale at LIVE.CODEORANGETOTH.COM. All purchasing tickets will get an instant download of “The Cutter,” a previously unreleased track from the Underneath album sessions.

Fans can also tune in at 3:00PM EST / 12:00PM PST for MUDBANGERS BALL (Vol.2), a special livestream pre-show hosted by Riki Rachtman featuring interviews and new heavy music videos, reimagining a beloved format.

Code Orange vocalist Jami Morgan says, “We are very excited to present the next chapter of the Code Orange live streaming experiment. We are hoping to deliver something on a whole new level with ‘Back Inside the Glass’ and are glad to have our brothers and sisters in Jesus Piece, Year of the Knife and Machine Girl along with us.”

Jesus Piece’s Luis Aponte remarked, “Code Orange made themselves the innovators of this,” adding, “If we were going to do a livestream, we’re going to do it right.”

“No one could have predicted what this year would bring or how it would devastate live music,” noted Year of the Knife bassist Madison Watkins. “In a world without touring, we have to keep pushing to find ways to connect and keep the momentum, and Code Orange is leading the pack in terms of innovating and creating new experiences.”

Machine Girl’s Matt Stephenson offered, “This is the first Machine Girl ‘live’ set since the beginning of the pandemic and I’m excited that it’s happening alongside Code Orange.”

The livestream comes on the heels of their Under the Skin stripped down virtual performance that was turned into a digital live album. Check here to pick it up. Code Orange also issued their latest studio album, Underneath, earlier this year and it’s available here.

GWAR to Play Full ‘Scumdogs’ Album for Special Guest Livestream

With two drive-in concerts now under their… loincloths… GWAR are bringing their gory show to the digital world with an Oct. 30 livestream event. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of their pivotal second album, Scumdogs of the Universe, our lords and masters will be playing the record in its entirety and will welcome special guests to the stage.

“We always wanted to do a concert without an audience in the room,” enthused Blothar, who then lamented, “The audience is always the worst part. Well, that and the fact that we’re constantly being attacked by a bunch of assholes while we try to get through a set.”

The 30th anniversary Scumdogs set has potential to attract some special guests, to which the front-thing commented, “Man, I hope none of those old school dicks show up to rain on our glorious parade.”

GWAR’s performance will begin at 8PM ET and a pre-show featuring members of the band will start two hours prior to set time. To get your tickets, head to GWAR’s website. This unique show will also be available to view on demand through Nov. 15.

With the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3, GWAR have also urged fans to register to vote to determine who the band will kill onstage for the next four years. Get more voting information here.

Oct. 30 will also see the release of the remastered 30th anniversary edition of Scumdogs of the Universe. Limited edition box sets are also available in addition to standard formats. Head to this location to get your copy.

The band’s first worldwide pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 14, streaming live from Metallica HQ.
