Trivium will perform live for the first time since April in a special event next month.
The band made the announcement Wednesday. It will hold what it has dubbed “A Light or a Distant Mirror: A Global Livestream Concert Experience Live From Full Sail University” on July 10.
The ticketed event is in support of Trivium’s latest album, What The Dead Men Say. It will feature a new stage show from the band and will be the first time this year that the band has performed songs from its new album live.
The band talked about the upcoming performance in a collective statement.
“We had to get creative when we heard there was no touring this summer,” the statement reads. “We held off on the Zoom concerts and asked our creative/production team to come up with the biggest real-time live metal streaming event of the summer and what we now have to present to you is our show called ‘A Light or a Distant Mirror.’ This performance will be 100% live and is not pre-taped. We will have a brand new epic stage set and lights, and we will bring it 100 percent. We are thankful to our friends at Full Sail University, who are providing us a first class performance arena and the Maestro broadcast team for streaming our show to the corners of the earth! We hope you can join us.”
Jay Noble, Full Sail University Vice President of Alumni & Event Production also shared his thoughts on the forthcoming event.
“Hosting this virtual concert with Trivium is a true full circle moment for us on numerous levels,” said Noble. “Before its release, the album What The Dead Men Say was recorded on campus in our flagship professional recording studio — the Audio Temple, with Course Director Darren Schneider serving as a Recording Engineer. That experience allowed us to welcome home Full Sail graduate and Trivium guitarist, Corey Beaulieu, alongside the entire band including lead guitar and vocalist, Matt Heafy, who can recall recording at Full Sail during his teen years. Through our latest collaboration with Trivium, we are excited to bring this unique livestreamed musical experience to Trivium fans, our university community, and audiences around the globe, during a time when music is needed most.”
Tickets for the show are $9, and are on sale now. VIP bundles and exclusive merchandise bundles are available here. A portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the music therapy program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, which is a non-profit hospital.
Pre-show happenings start at 3 p.m. July 10. Terry Bezer, host of the Mosh Talks show on knotfest.com, will lead the pre-show events. His broadcast will feature interviews with the band, clips from the show’s pre-production week and more.
