Here's a little treat for those of you who have good taste in music!
The estate of Prince have released this amazing concert footage from the Purple Rain tour in 1985 and it's so good! Enjoy!

The possible future of live music?

First socially distanced music concert takes place in America | Planet Rock

"The first socially distanced music concert has taken place in America since the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown – check out photos below.

Singer of the Mississippi based country-rock band Bishop Gunn, Travis McCready, played the TempleLive venue in Fort Smith, Arkansas on Monday (18th May), but it was far-removed from an ordinary concert experience.

All attendees wore compulsory face masks and took mandatory temperature tests before they entered the venue.

Once inside, concertgoers used one-way aisles to get to their seats which were set out in clusters, dubbed “fan pods”, with large sections of the seating cordoned off with yellow tape emblazoned with the word ‘Caution’.

Travis McCready and his fellow performers also maintained a minimum distance of 12 feet from the audience as an extra precaution.

As photos below show, the toilets inside the venue were specially modified for the evening to enforce social distancing.

A total of 229 people attended the concert at former Masonic Temple, TempleLive, which usually has a capacity of 1,100.

The gig was originally due to take place on Friday 15th May but was postponed until Monday (18th May) after Arkansas officials issued a cease-and-desist order to the promoter last week. It was eventually given the green light to go ahead.

Vice President of TempleLive, Mike Brown, told Arkansas TV station KFSM-TV: "This is about rock and roll, and having a good time, and live music, and being out with your peers, and doing what you do as an American: You get out, you do things.”

He also questioned why concerts don’t get the go ahead when other public gatherings Stateside do: "If you can go to a church and it's a public assembly, there is no difference.

"How is it OK for one group to have a public meeting, and it's not OK for a music venue to have the same opportunity?"

At the start of the show, Mike Brown aptly played Beastie Boys' ‘Fight For Your Right (To Party)’ through the venue’s speakers before support act Lauren Brown came on stage.

Earlier this month, the Event Safety Alliance published a 29-page booklet containing best practices for promoters and venue staff when they finally reopen their venues Stateside.

It's unclear when UK concert venues will reopen their doors."

As somebody who works in a live events venue, that article depresses me. What's the point in going to a show when there is going to be so little atmosphere, you may as well stay at home and watch that Prince concert video I posted up there ^^^

I sent the article to people I work with and they're horrified
There is literally no way you can make any money from that either, so the concert goer gets a bad experience, the venue makes no money but the band and promoter will probably do OK financially, but might feel like they're selling their souls playing to 200 people in a 1100 seater venue with lashings of crime scene tape everywhere!

I was taken to the Glasgow Hydro on Tuesday night to see Andrea Boccelli-astounding!
Apart from his amazing repetoire,in between a short break the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra no less,played Intermezzo.

My God,it was incredible,visions of Michael Corleone falling off his chair and Jake LaMotta dancing around the ring came flashing into my head.

An amazing two hours.

Sounds brilliant. Bocelli is one hell of a tenor. I don't have any of his albums but i've heard enough of my mum's.

Went to see go now, band consisting of known musicians signing moody blues songs,

GO NOW! - The music of The Moody Blues is the brainchild of drummer Gordy Marshall. Gordy toured with The Moody Blues for 25 years as a session musician. Along with Mick Wilson (known as lead singer of 10cc), the two musicians have brought together some of the very best singers and instrumentalists in the country to create the ultimate tribute to the greatest classic rock band of a generation.Hit songs such as Nights in White Satin, Tuesday Afternoon, Go Now and Isn't Life Strange are beautifully recreated live, and sound as close to the initial recordings as you will ever hear.

Absolutely great night had the crowd going, highly recommend I’d go see again without a doubt.
