Southampton, England native and now Los Angeles resident, Gareth Emery, planned a 2.5 hour set showcasing his classic hits over the last ten years with a North American tour.
Of course, that’s not going to happen.
Instead, with a production value greater than the tour itself, Gareth aims to offer lasers, multiple cameras, and smoke from his back yard and will broadcast the set from his pool.
The Englishman invites fans to “fire up Zoom, get the drinks in, lights, and turn the living room into a nightclub.”
Those that refunded or still hold a ticket to an original tour date will be admitted to the stream for free. Otherwise, it’s $10 to view the original broadcast and subsequent replays that will be aired in Europe the day after and in Australia and Asia two days later.
According to Gareth, the fee is necessary to offset production costs and tickets are limited to 1000 persons.
The event is scheduled for Friday, May 8, 2020 at 9 p.m. E.S.T. with replays in Europe on Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 8 p.m. U.K. time and Sunday, May 10, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. A.E.S.T. time.
A limited-edition Decade T-Shirt is also available for $45.
Those that refunded their ticket and still have the receipt can email firstname.lastname@example.org for admittance.
