With COVID-19 restrictions lifting in various parts of the US, we are finally getting chances to see some of our favorite artists on stage again before this summer is completely behind us. Some acts are braving the live-on-stage events where they are allowed, and many others have opted for the drive-in style concerts where folks sit in their cars to listen and watch.
Other still have chosen to return via online streaming performances, both free of charge and ticketed.
The Infamous Stringdusters have wanted to do something since spring like all the rest of the bluegrass/jamgrass world, and have found a way to get back on stage for their fans, while also benefiting the many live music venues which have been hard hit by the shutdowns.
So October 2-4 the ‘Dusters will be streaming their regular stage set – with lights, smoke, and all – from the Fox Theater in Boulder, CO. Tickets will be offered for three shows, Friday and Saturday nights, and a Sunday matinee. Each set will be different, with a separate theme for each one.
- Friday, October 2 – 8:00 p.m. (EDT): An Evening With The Infamous Stringdusters, a 2-set show
- Saturday, October 3 – 8:00 p.m. (EDT): Classics and Covers Experience
- Sunday, October 4 – 1:00 p.m. (EDT): Bluegrass, Brunch, and Bingo, an open-forum game show setting for fans
Friday and Saturday tickets are priced at $19.99, with a combo price of $34.99. VIP tickets are also available for $45.99, and include pre-show access with the band (cocktail hour on Friday and dinner on Saturday). They can be purchased in advance from Luck•Stream online.
There are no standalone tickets for the Sunday matinee. That show is limited to those who purchase ones for both Friday and Saturday, and choose the VIP upgrade for at least one.
