The Bats Virtual Show

Wednesday 21st October, 2009 12:00PM

The Bats are rounding off their sporadic world tour in support of their latest release The Guilty Office with a very special show in Dunedin at Sammy's on Saturday 7th November. Supporting them will be David Kilgour & The Heavy 8s and The Puddle.

Making this show extra special is that it's not just restricted to those who reside in Dunedin or NZ but is open to Bats' fans the world over by allowing those who cannot make the actual show to buy tickets to a "virtual show". The promoter explains:

"Interest from fans around the world in this show prompted the “virtual show” idea from event organiser, The Puddle’s Ian Henderson. One US fan sent him the price of a ticket so she could “be there in spirit” setting off some brainstorming on ways to involve those dedicated fans who are unable to attend this show. A live internet stream was the first idea but would have some technical and quality challenges and stream at the wrong time of day for overseas fans. Instead the idea of filming the event on three cameras and editing together a “highlights package” of two songs picked by each band was suggested. This will be able to be downloaded approximately 6 weeks after the show (to allow time to mix and edit the production) by “virtual show” purchasers as a series of digital video files to play on their computer or burn to DVD."

Tickets to both the real and virtual show are on sale here at Undertheradar - to buy a virtual ticket you have to enter "virtualshow" in the promocode field. 

All tickets purchased also receive a free download of three unreleased songs from each of the artists.
