Lamb Of God have announced two worldwide streaming events, set to take place later this month. The events will offer fans first-time-ever live performances of the band’s new self-titled album, as well as their 2004 album Ashes Of The Wake, both of which will be performed live in their entirety in the band’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia.
“We couldn’t have been more bummed about having to postpone our European and US tours earlier this year, especially with us releasing our new album in June,” comments frontman D. Randall Blythe. “However, unique times call for unique measures, so we’re going to do something we’ve never done – play two albums from front to back in their entirety. We’re stoked to get together back on a small stage & play an intimate club in our hometown of Richmond, Virginia – it’s our first time playing just about all of the songs from our new album and our first time doing Ashes Of The Wake in full. We hope you can tune in, its going to be special.”
The first of the two events will take place on 18th September 2020, where Lamb Of God will perform their latest self-titled album in full. The second event will take place on 25th September 2020 with a performance of Ashes Of The Wake. Both sets will include encores of fan-favourites and songs that the band haven’t performed in years.
A pre-show for each event will begin at 9am BST (4pm EDT/1pm PDT), hosted by Jose Mangin, featuring exclusive interviews with members of the band, as well as opening sets from Bleed From Within (18th September) and Whitechapel (25th September). Bleed From Within will be airing a brand new, full production thirty minute set and Whitechapel will air their 2014 hometown performance from Knoxville, TN. Lamb Of God will perform each night at 10pm BST (11pm CEST/5pm EDT/2pm PDT).
Tickets for the events are $15 per show or, for a limited time, $20 for both shows, on sale now HERE. Streams will be available to watch on demand from 04:59am UK time on Monday morning for those who purchase a ticket. Lamb Of God will also be offering ticket and limited edition merch bundles, as well as an exclusive merchandise store available only to ticket holders during the stream.
Lamb Of God have announced rescheduled UK/European tour dates, marking their first UK headline shows in eight years, with support from Kreator and Power Trip. The tour was originally meant to take place in April 2020, but have been postponed to November/December 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
