Today, Connecticut-based rock quintet Goose announced plans for a live stream concert from Rockefeller Center in the heart of New York City. “Goosemas Livestream from Rockefeller Center” is the band’s seventh annual holiday celebration in as many years. The livestream premieres December 11 at 7pm ET exclusively on Twitch with proceeds benefiting Save Our Stages and Conscious Alliance. The unique performance will be streamed on Twitch’s new Relix Channel.
“Goosemas 4 was my first gig playing with Goose so the annual show has a big place in my heart. I’m bummed we can’t be with our family and friends in person for this one, but the location is going to make it that much more exciting to stream,” said Goose’s Peter Anspach (Guitar, Keys, Vocals). “I’m beyond stoked we were able to pull that together in such a chaotic year. Big shout out to our whole team for always crushing it, Peter Shapiro, and thanks to Rockefeller Center for hosting what will be a very special night.”
Nestled over seven stories high in the Manhattan skyline, “Goosemas Livestream From Rockefeller Center” will be the first livestream of its kind, which comes as no surprise given the band’s penchant for innovation and creativity over the past year. The late December event will be the capstone to an incredible year that saw Goose complete their universally acclaimed Bingo Tour, which amassed thousands of viewers over the “Digital Tour,” as well as a string of sold-out socially-distant drive-in shows this fall.
“Goose has amazing momentum right now and we are so excited to be working with them on this incredibly special performance at Rockefeller Center– one of the most iconic locations in the world. There isn’t a more epic way to ring in the holidays than with a rock show in the sky,“ added Peter Shapiro, Publisher of Relix Magazine and Twitch Relix Channel.
Following the annual tradition, Goosemas will also include a charitable aspect during 2020’s most important giving month and at this time when people across the country are in an insurmountable amount of need. Proceeds from the benefit will go to two separate organizations; NIVA’s Save our Stages — a national charity that provides support to independent live event venues and promoters throughout the United States in these trying times; Conscious Alliance — a nonprofit that connects a network of creatives to collect large-scale donations in order to combat hunger in historically underserved communities. Donations from Goosemas will help keep Conscious Alliance on the road this winter delivering 200,000 meals to kids and families in need. Every $1 donation = 2 meals to someone going without food this holiday season.
Donations can begin now at www.GOOSEMAS.com. Those who make donations through the Goosemas website will receive early access to the Goosemas Merch Store on Wednesday December 9th at 10am ET, and opening to the general public at 1pm ET. For more information, visit GOOSEMAS.com.
