Suicide Silence have announced a virtual global tour, with unique sets, exclusive merchandise and custom experiences in each part of the world. Each show will feature a professionally filmed multi-camera live set, along with an extensive Q&A at the end of each performance.
Tickets for the shows will be geo-gated within a reasonable radius, so that only those in the general area can view a particular stream. Those who purchase tickets will have access to an exclusive merch collection that includes an official tour shirt specifically for their market, as well as a number of other items that will never be sold elsewhere.
The streamed performances will go on sale several weeks or months in advance, with fans able to share their set-list preferences and any other special requests ahead of each show. Several shows are being finalised, with Los Angeles and New York expected to kick things off in June.
“With touring conditions as they are we want to give these local metal communities a place to come together and experience a new type of Suicide Silence show,” the band comments. “The ability for us to schedule a performance anywhere around the world with each market’s time zone in mind will be a huge positive. We’ll be able to play for places we’ve only been to once twice or maybe never before and no one other than them will ever get to see that particular performance. While we plan to begin with markets where we had to cancel or postpone recent shows we’ll certainly keep all market requests in mind and add shows around the globe accordingly. Of course once we’re able to properly tour without extreme audience restrictions we’ll book as many shows as physically possible. Until then we’ll be offering up a variety of unique virtual experiences and we can’t wait for this all to kick off!”
