Mastodon is set to perform its first-ever acoustic concert from the Georgia Aquarium and will be broadcasting the concert live across the world. The Atlanta metal band is teaming up with HD streaming platform Dreamstage for the July 15 event.
The hometown concert will mark Mastodon’s first concert in 2021, before they play a handful of festival dates in the fall. The live show has been dubbed “Captured Live at Georgia Aquarium,” and a press release hints that this may just be when the band perform an acoustic set.
In addition to the performance, the livestream will feature commentary from the members of Mastodon, which will offer insight into the group’s creative process.
Virtual tickets cost $ 19.99 in advance at this location and can be bundled with merchandising items like an event poster or t-shirt. The price per ticket will increase to $ 24.99 on the day of the show.
When they’re not playing among sharks and other sea creatures, Mastodon is working on his new album. While no release date or track has been released, the band have revealed that producer David Bottrill (Tool) is at the helm and the LP is tentatively expected for a fall release.
In anticipation of the new album, Mastodon has released a series of unique singles, including the inclusion of Bill & Ted Face the Music’s soundtrack “Rufus Lives” and the Medium Rarities cut “Fallen Torches”, as well as the recent ” Forged by Neron ”from the Dark Nights Death Metal soundtrack.
