Brandi Carlile has announced a virtual concert set to take place on Monday, June 1st, at 9:00 p.m. ET. The GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter will perform her 2018 album, By the Way, I Forgive You, in its entirety.
Scheduled on her 39th birthday, this performance will stream via Veeps and marks Carlile’s first full public performance held during the coronavirus quarantine. In an announcement video, Carlile noted that future virtual concerts would follow and see her perform all other albums in their entirety. She went on to explain that though her band and crew have been out of work for weeks on end, they have continued to receive paychecks. All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards her band and crew as well at the Looking Out Foundation‘s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
“In a changed world, I believe I will find catharsis in playing the album that changed my life,” said Carlile in a press release.
Veeps founder Joel Madden explained: “Brandi is loved and respected by music fans, as well as her fellow artists, and it’s inspiring to see how she is using Veeps to navigate these challenging times in such a positive way. I’m personally touched to watch Brandi and her fans come together in support of her touring family and crew, and I know how much that means to them. We are proud to support her mission, and as always, we look forward to the next show.”
Bandmates Phil and Tim Hanseroth, and Josh Neumann, will join her in the performance, and tickets are on sale now, starting at just $10. Click here for more information and scroll down to watch the concert’s announcement video.
