Their 2020 and 2021 Christmas concerts were all performed remotely... on-stage, but with no live audiences. They did however record CD's and sold them.

That's so cool.

I've always wanted to go to one of their concerts, but every time I was in the US for business or pleasure, they didn't have a concert in the area where I was at.

They perform several concerts a year and their Christmas special is always the best.

Cool, thanks.

Got it downloading. It will probably take most of the night due to its size, but it's going onto the NAS drive, so the big TV can display it. What is the run time of the whole thing? About 4 hours or so? It's about 500 meg long.

They always put on a fantastic show. 

Surveyors come out 6 months before the show and measure the size of the location where the event is to be held.

Then the designers come up with designs for all of the lighting, stage, backdrop, camera stand, director's seat, light management staff's seating, speakers and other platforms (both electronically elevated/lowered and fixed), they calculate all the required power and how many circuit breakers to put into place, determine which switching systems to use for all the lighting, get the video specialists to come up with the graphics for the backdrop, finalize the music, etc. And then the rehearsal after rehearsal after rehearsal continue. 

Then, 1 month before the show, all of the heavy equipment is brought in to help erect the structures for lighting, platforms, stage, etc. They do several dry runs in the days coming up to the actual even onstage to confirm everything is operating properly and the final big day comes. Cleanup is much quicker as it's just a tear-down process and only takes 2-3 days.

But their shows are all amazing to say the least.
