For some people, life in quarantine means using the time to reflect and heal. For others it’s about letting those creative juices flow and bringing something new to the table. And for some, it’s simply an opportunity to get closer to fans. Liam Payne falls in the latter.
The young star has kept his fans sated with weekly updates, catching up with his former bandmates and further fueling rumours about a possible One Direction reunion.
Here’s What Liam Payne Has in Store
This time around, he’s got a real treat waiting for his fans: a brand new virtual concert. Titled, ‘The LP Show,’ it will arrive on Veeps, an online experiential platform that allows artists to sell tickets directly to fans for live-streamed performances.
Slated for debut on July 17th, ‘Act 1’ of The LP Show will be a fully produced concert with a live band. Payne will be performing out of a fully sanitized, socially-distanced music venue. And the event will be broadcast in real time to fans all over the world.
Oh and here’s the kicker, according to a recent statement about the show, Payne will even be able to interact with the audience during his performance. “In an attempt to recreate as much of the live experience as possible, using a series of special effects and features, Liam will be uniquely equipped to interact with his audience during the show.”
Interestingly enough, tickets are “pay what you want” starting at $10. The reason for this being that a large portion of ticket proceeds will go to the Trussell Trust, which works with a network of more than 1,200 food banks across the U.K. to ensure better accessibility to food sources, during this global coronavirus pandemic.
Presale tickets are currently available, while general public tickets will be available starting Friday, July 10th.
The poster for this show features a smouldering Liam Payne against a black and turquoise backdrop. The next slide features a list of cities and countries, with their respective timings for the general ticket sales. Payne shared his excitement over this event in the caption, stating that this project has been something he’s been working on for a while now.
So, mark your calendars, this month is about to get a lot more fun!
