Phish Announce Details for NYE Webcasts
Phish have announced the details of the live webcast for their sold-out New Year’s Eve shows at Madison Square Garden. LivePhish.com will broadcast a 10 camera, high-definition shoot of each show with high quality, live-mixed audio, which fans will be able to watch on PCs, MACs, iPads, iPhones and Androids. Four night passes can be pre-ordered for $58.99, while the webcasts of individual shows can be purchased for $14.99, with the exception of the December 31 show, which will cost $19.99. CDs, MP3s and FLACs of each night will be available as well.
Fans who are unable to watch the streams live will be able to view archived videos of the full shows within 72 hours of each performance. As soon as the archived streams are made available, people who paid for the webcasts will be emailed a special code that will give them access the video. The code will only be redeemable for 48 hours.
In order to help their fans avoid technical issues with the streams down the road, LivePhish has provided a test video that they can use to determine if their computer is compatible with the webcasts. The test video of Phish playing “Light” at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Arena in Commercie City, CO on September 1, 2013 can viewed at LivePhish.com. The webcasts, as well as the audio from the concerts, can be pre-ordered here
