Americana’s main man Jason Isbell has announced that he’ll be livestreaming in concert from Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl on New Year’s Eve.
Having premiered his hit 2020 album Reunions with his wife Amanda Shires at the same venue in May, Isbell will this month be returning with his full band, the 400 Unit, for another night of music to see in 2021.
The concert will be exclusively accessible on a pay-per-view basis on Fans.live from 8pm C.T (2am GMT) on the 31st. Ticket bundles are on sale now here, starting from $25. The stream will be available for replay until Sunday 3 January at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Alongside releasing a new record in 2020, Isbell featured on Shires' powerful single 'The Problem'. The single was a statement from Shires, having watched women’s rights reduced in many states, the track gave a voice—but not a name—to the emotional complexity surrounding abortion. In a recent interview with Holler, Shires detailed the reason she wanted her husband to duet with her on the painful yet empowering track;
"To do it as a duet, I think it was important to me. Selfishly, I think having the support of my husband...well, I already have a backbone, but it gave me a feeling of “You’re not doing this on your own.” We’re still here together and everything’s going to be ok. Even in putting out the song, I had somebody saying, “I’m on your side about this.” Sometimes that’s what you need when you’re talking about your own body in front of people."
