We hope this update find you safe and well, in what has undoubtedly been the biggest challenge to us all in the live events business.
With some glimmers of light in terms of live performance and some innovative ideas for getting back to work, we wanted to explore with you what might be possible for bookings in the short and mid-term future. Our artists are really looking forward to finding ways of performing live again.
We have discussed with ABM artists what options may be possible for them, from:
- socially distanced live gigs with reduced capacity in some venues – sometimes with two houses on one day (typically 2 x 60-70 minutes.
- hybrid live/online streaming options which may augment potential income.
- exclusively online performances (live or pre-recorded) with high production values, streamed direct from venues.
There is a general spirit of positivity (and flexibility) in order to get back to work. We would now like to touch base with you all to see what your current plans are, and to offer you some options from artists who are in a position to take advantage of any opportunities available.
So, we’d like your views on ways forwards and any interest in bookings with the artists below, so that we can build an overview of short-term opportunities and longer-term prospects for our world taking steps towards some sort of normality.
As this new world develops, we need to consider new rules and ways of working. We appreciate that risk is far greater in terms of income potential, so we are happy to discuss is sustainable for all involved. It is clearly in everyone’s interests to avoid clashes in geography and timing. We also need to consider limiting the time that performances remain accessible online and also online ticket capacity in order not to affect future performances.
Please do get in touch and let us know how you are doing. And please do consider what options you may be able to offer the wonderful artists on the ABM roster in the coming months and year.
