Swedish metal juggernaut Avatar — whose frontman Johannes Eckerström appears on one of the covers of Revolver's Fall 2020 Issue and whose new album, Hunter Gatherer, is available in a Revolver-exclusive vinyl edition — have announced a four-part concert stream experience. Dubbed Avatar Ages - An Impossible Concert Experience, the event is set to kick off on January 9th and will feature songs from Avatar's catalog, starting with a performance of Hunter Gatherer in full. The subsequent January concerts will feature fan-voted set lists, chosen by ticket purchasers.
The schedule of Avatar Ages - An Impossible Concert Experience concert stream events is as follows:
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)
"Nothing can top the feeling of standing eye to eye with the roaring beast that is a metal crowd, hungry for blood," Eckerström commented. "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."
Concert stream tickets are available for individual shows and as a four-show package. Various ticket bundles are also available, offering exclusive merchandise such as T-shirts, hoodies, vinyl and a commemorative laminate. A limited number of exclusive virtual Meet & Greets with the entire band are also available. Fans will be able to select their date and time period in advance, and after their personal Meet & Greet, they'll receive a video file of their conversation, as well as the opportunity to take pictures during the experience.
