Jerrod Niemann to stream Nov. 29 Chicago concert
Some ticket proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Jerrod Niemann is opening the virtual doors of his Chicago concert on Thursday, Nov. 29 to fans worldwide. Niemann has partnered with laplive.tv to stream the Joe’s Bar concert online at 9 p.m. (CT).
He’s selling pay-per-view tickets for the high definition live stream ($4.99 in advance, $6.99 day-of-show), but 25 cents from each ticket sold will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Purchase tickets here.
“The concept of my new album, ‘Free The Music,’ is celebrating where country music has been and where it is headed, so we partnered with laplive.tv to bring that same theme to our live show and use the Internet to bring fans worldwide all together to one room,” says Niemann in a prepared statement.
The night of the show, Niemann wants to know the where fans are watching, so they’re invited to tweet at him at @jrodfromoz using the hashtag #jrodlive to let him know their locations.
