Modern English To Broadcast Live Concert!
Recently, legendary post-punk band MODERN ENGLISH had to cancel their North American summer headline tour amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The North American tour was set to be a 40th anniversary tour, a run that was to also feature a front-to-back performance of its breakthrough 1982 album After the Snow.
Making lemonade out of lemons, Modern English have decided that they will provide fans with a broadcast performance of the entire LP on Friday, September 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET and Saturday, September 26 at 8:30 p.m. PT, as well as 8:30 p.m. in the UK, Europe and Asia time zones on Saturday, September 26.
Filming of the concert will be at Indigo at the O2, London and partnering with LiveHereNow, a fully-independent, specialist live music production company, Modern English will deliver a live show with state-of-the-art sound, lights and production. There will also be projections and Vaughan Oliver artwork designs that will be woven into the performance.
In addition to regular tickets, a special VIP Virtual Meet & Greet is available for $75 and will include exclusive footage and content from the event. Tickets for the event, along with the VIP bundle, are available for purchase below. Frontman Robbie Grey had the following to share about the upcoming event:
“It was a real kick in the teeth when we couldn’t go out and play ‘After the Snow’ in its entirety this year for the very first time. So now with this one-off live performance, we get to do that for a global audience. We have added atmospheric lighting that will be incorporated into the event featuring artwork from Vaughan Oliver. So it will be a special night for us.”
