‘Live From Out There’ Announces Virtual Goose, Twiddle & Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Tours
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s “Homefest” will span June 11 – 13, 2020 and will include five sets from the hosts as well as performances from other artists. Homefest will also feature workshops, exclusive content and community focused virtual events. Virtual happy hour with the band and signed setlists are among special VIP perks for those who purchase High Flyer Packages. “Tickets” are on sale now here.
“Instead of sulking about the state of live events, we’ve been working around the clock to come up with new ways to stay connected with the people we love,” explained PPPP frontman Greg Ormont in a statement. “Homefest aims to provide fans with a more personal glimpse of the band, including intimate livestream performances, virtual hangouts and interactive content. We’re excited to see The Flock reunited in full force, there’s no place like home!”
Twiddle have dubbed their virtual tour for Live From Out There the “Roots Tour.” The Vermont-based jam quartet’s virtual excursion spans July 9 – 26 and will include nine original concerts filmed throughout the Green Mountain State. Additionally, the “Roots Tour” will give fans the opportunity to partake in virtual VIP experiences, witness never-before-seen archival footage and listen to selected unreleased shows. Head here to buy “tickets” for Twiddle’s virtual tour.
“With the Summer tour canceled, we wanted to take this time to do something really special, head back to all the different venues that hold a special place in the band’s career going all the way back to Castleton College where [Twiddle keyboardist] Ryan [Dempsey] and I first met,” noted Twiddle’s Mihali in a press release announcing the tour. “Along with the nine live-streamed sets and virtual meet and greet experiences, we are digging up early never before seen footage and unreleased shows. This is going to be something really special for us and very excited to relive some of these special moments from our career.”
Goose will embark on the “Summer 2020 Virtual Bingo Tour” between June 19 – 28. The quartet will serve up eight livestreamed sets over the course of the 10-day digital tour. Goose gave the tour its name because fans who purchase tickets will have the chance to participate in an interactive game of setlist bingo. Prizes include merchandise packages, VIP experiences and one-on-one digital hangs with band members. Additionally, setlists will be derived from bingo balls drawn on stage in another play on the theme. Tickets and more information are available here.
The livestreams are only a part of Goose’s virtual tour. Look for Q&A sessions with the crew, community-focused activities, virtual happy hours, workshops and more. “On June 19th, we celebrate the grand opening of the Goose Community Rec Center with 10 days of activities and bingo nights… we couldn’t be more stoked,” exclaimed Goose multi-instrumentalist Peter Anspach in a statement. “Get involved,” added Goose guitarist Rick Mitarotonda.
