Sturgill Simpson announces livestream show from Ryman Auditorium
Sturgill Simpson released Sound & Fury, and its accompanying anime film, last year, and was scheduled to tour with Tyler Childers this year in support of it, but that, of course, was cancelled due to coronavirus. If you missed out on seeing Sturgill live this year, he's offering you a chance to see him from home instead. He's announced a livestream performance, happening on Friday, June 5 at 8 PM ET (7 PM CT). He'll be performing inside Nashville, TN's Ryman Auditorium (while it's otherwise empty), and you can watch on Nugs.tv, Twitch, and YouTube.
Read on for what Sturgill has to say about the show:
I would very much like to offer immense thanks to all my fans for contributing to the DDSS quarantine charity drive. With your unbelievable generosity we raised over $250,000 for Musicares COVID-19 Relief, Equity Alliance Nashville Tornado Relief, and the Special Forces Foundation benefiting severely wounded operators fighting the global war on terrorism and the families of those who did not return.
As a show of my appreciation for your efforts I will be performing a one hour live stream concert as promised THIS FRIDAY EVENING JUNE 5TH @ 7pm Central Time live from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville Tennessee joined by some very special friends on stage to round out the sound •••Stuart Duncan (fiddle) / Mike Bub (bass) / Sierra Hull (mandolin) / Scott Vestal (banjo) / Tim O’Brien (guitar) / Mark Howard (guitar) / Miles Miller (the best snare and brushes you ever heard) We will be streaming live on the following platforms:
-TWITCH - handle @sturgillsimpson

We will also be selling an exclusive show poster and a brand new “Thirsty Sturg” t-shirt at www.sturgillsimpson.com in efforts to raise further funds during the stream.
