Relax, this will all look very silly in a few months when we have a cure.

I went to a local show that only had 30 people. I enjoyed the elbow room, so maybe us introverts could adapt to that. ;D

You can't beat listening to a great album on a nice sound system at home.  You can keep your 'live' shows.

Not so sure about that....ok standing in a stadium watching ants half a mile away and listening on some shite wind affected PA system is pretty shite in the main....But get a good band in a nice smallish location and it can still be an incredible experience.

Smallish locations will be the first to see shows again. Slowly starting in July over here.

Cant they make the suits look like the Village People.....a theater full of U2 fans dressed up like that, bouncing to an entire set list of Pop songs would be fun!

Nothing like a good live show in a good venue.

Just had an interesting live concert experience, may be a model of things to come.

Joe Bonamassa, a great rock/blues guitarist in the vein on Page, Clapton, SRV with some Hendrix sprinkled in just had a live streaming PPV concert yesterday from the Ryman Auditorium.  We had seen him in person several times and my wife is a big fan.   There was no audience, but depending on the package you purchased, you could take a picture of yourself (oh, I guess that would be a selfie), they print it out life size version and place it in one of the seats. (we got this package) So her is what $100 got her for her birthday.

- Live Streaming Concert with live debut of his new album played in full
- Access to all his recorded concerts free for 1 year streaming
- Free digital download of new album upon release on October
- Picture of my wife in one of the seats at the Ryman for the show
- Picture of Joe with the audience
- Name listed in credits at end of show
- Name in credits of the DVD of the show
- DVD copy of show
- Of course a concert T-shirt

At the end of the show, while the credits were running, Joe (probably prerecorded) walks thru the "crowd" making comments, observations as well as talking about the charity that $1 of every ticket goes to for up and coming artists.  As he was doing this (ended up being a bonus for my wife) he ends up sitting next to her picture in the seat, so that was pretty cool, hopefully immortalized on the DVD, but at least it will be on the streaming versions.

It was a very cool experience, the show was very, very good.  They didn't pipe in any crowd noise, so it went basically silent between songs while they changed up guitars etc.  I think for $100, it was well worth it.  It did not, however, replace an in person experience, but they did give us a lot for $100 imo.
