Sidewalk Prophets' historic sold-out Ryman concert livestream-only event will take place tonight, July 9, 2020. Originally, the band invited their "Great Big Family" to experience the gift of an exclusive free album preview and live performance at one of Nashville's most revered venues, but have made the event livestream-only due to social distancing rules and COVID-19 concerns. The show will instead stream via Facebook Live tonight, July 9, 2020 at 7 PM CST. With over 100 media, radio, and DSP partners cross posting the event and SiriusXM broadcasting it live, the band should reach over 4.5 million people.
Given that the concert is now a livestream event, the band is excited to have the opportunity to share this night with even more fans, as the livestream will allow those from all over the world to join in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. "We worked so hard on this event and were ready to have one of the most exciting nights of our career and then the pandemic hit and changed everything," shares Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey. "While we're disappointed that we won't be able to have a live audience for this show, we're excited to share our first visit to historic Ryman Auditorium with fans from all over the world. We truly are a great big family, and we can't wait to share our new album with everyone from the historic Ryman stage."
During the sold-out show, fans will hear the entire The Things That Got Us Here album, out now, as well as get backstage access with the band. The show will be presented by Way-FM and Children International, a leading humanitarian organization focused on helping children break the cycle of poverty.
