The people of Quebec will have access to a virtual show delivered live and organized exclusively for them, on December 5, by a musician from Pink Floyd who will present the group’s greatest hits live from Los Angeles.
Failing to be able to perform in theaters, the artists behind the show entitled Beyond the wall will perform virtually for people from Quebec City who wish to attend.
From Los Angeles
The show is hosted by Scott Page, a Pink Floyd musician, and Stephen Perkins, drummer from Jane’s Addiction.
“This show had to be done in Quebec, for the people and businesses of Quebec. However, given the situation, it will be shot in Los Angeles. But it’s really produced for the people and businesses here, ”insists Arlaine Cossette, co-owner of the agency La Firme, partner of the event produced by MGMT Productions.
Beyond the wall was supposed to be produced at ExpoCité, before the pandemic regains its magnitude and forces theaters to close again.
The event was to be presented as a dinner-show and was aimed at companies wishing to hold their Christmas party there.
Heavily affected sectors
It is in order to reinvent itself and better adopt the virtual mode that the company turned to holding the show on a virtual platform.
“This initiative is also to continue to support the event industry and the sectors which are severely affected by the health crisis,” drops Mr.me Cossette. What’s interesting is that everything about production and promotion is done by people from here. “
The duration of the show will be 75 to 90 minutes. People and businesses interested in the event can attend by purchasing “virtual tables”.
There are 10,500 seats available and the show can be listened to from the Connexion platform, an event broadcasting software.
“With everything that has been canceled, such as the FEQ this summer, all the other festivals and shows, it will allow people to have an extraordinary experience,” concludes Mr.me Cossette.
