After 11 episodes, Delivered, Live is set to lower the curtains on its first season this Saturday night. 90s rock heroes Killing Heidi will close the show out with a bang, and the show will also feature replays of some of the best moments from the season, as voted for by the viewers.
The brainchild of The Handshake Agency, the show was created to stream live gigs, fully amplified and staged, into the homes of viewers worldwide. Every performer and crew member was paid for their time and viewers were able to experience live entertainment again, while the world went into lockdown. Throughout the season, over 10,000 tickets were sold, and over $888,000 was injected back into the live entertainment economy – via the musicians, comedians, venues, crew booking agents, managers and production crew involved. The weekly show gave many creatives the chance to share their art and generate the feeling that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. The show gave hope to many businesses who were able to survive because of what was being produced.
Something that can’t be measured is what it gave to the viewership. Viewers created new friendships in the YouTube chat room, and were able to discover new music each week that they may not have otherwise discovered. For some viewers, getting out to see live music and comedy was a challenge, even before the pandemic, due to geography, illness, family/work situations etc – Delivered, Live made live entertainment accessible to all again.
Delivered, Live are hoping to return for a second season sometime in the future, until then, tune in this Saturday night, 20th June from 7.30pm
