Swedish metal favorites Avatar have announced a series of concert streams being called ‘Avatar Ages – An Impossible Concert Experience.’ The events will take place over the course of January 2021.
“The 4-part concert film experience launches January 9 and will feature songs from AVATAR’s celebrated catalog, starting with a performance of their latest album in full, Hunter Gatherer, out now via eOne,” states the announcement. “The subsequent January concerts will feature fan voted set lists—chosen by ticket purchasers—with songs from Avatar Country, Feathers & Flesh, Hail The Apocalypse, Black Waltz, Thoughts of No Tomorrow, Schlacht and Avatar.”
The schedule of ‘Avatar Ages – An Impossible Concert Experience’ concert stream events is as follows (viewing starts at 1:00PM Pacific / 4:00PM Eastern / 10:00PM CET and remains on-demand for 72 hours):
* Saturday, January 9 – Age of Dreams (Hunter Gatherer from start to finish plus Avatars biggest songs)
* Saturday, January 16 – Age of Illusions (Feathers & Flesh and Avatar Country fan voted set list)
* Saturday, January 23 – Age of Madness (Black Waltz and Hail the Apocalypse fan voted set list)
* Saturday, January 30 – Age of Memories (Thoughts of No Tomorrow, Schlacht and Avatar fan voted set list)
About the performances, frontman Johannes Eckerström comments, “Nothing can top the feeling of standing eye to eye with the roaring beast that is a metal crowd, hungry for blood. Instead, what we are setting out to do is a series of shows we could never do on a normal stage. You will see Avatar as you’ve never seen us before. More music, more madness. We enter this with a game plan like no other, but ultimately the power is yours. This is something we’ll create together. We have missed you.”
“Fan voting for the Age of Illusions, Age of Madness and Age of Memories concert stream set lists will be open to ticket purchasers through December 3, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET. Fans will be emailed a link to activate fan voting after purchasing their virtual concert ticket. Purchasers will be able to choose their 10 favorite songs for each set list and submit directly to the band. Fan voting is only open to those who purchase a livestream ticket or bundle,” says a presser.
