Big thanks to our friends at Tourism London, the London Music Office, etc…  for getting the ball rolling on returning live music to London, and returning Londoners to live music venues.

From the official press release:

Aimed at supporting the live music sector through to the other side of this pandemic, Revive Live provides for the safe presentation of music in London with
support for artists, music venues, venue staff and production crews. Revive Live brings together a collective of organizations focused on strategically kickstarting the safe re-opening of
London music venues and public concerts.

Phase One of Revive Live will feature performances broadcast from various London music venues over the coming months. The program will work towards safely re-introducing patrons to
live music events with the goal of boosting recovery for the industry working under the COVID19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe & Open guidelines.

“Prior to the pandemic, London’s live music industry was growing steadily with 4,700+ events held annually in London while employing nearly 1,000 full-time equivalent jobs (not including
musicians),” says Cory Crossman, Music Industry Development Officer for The City of London.

“The live music industry was one of the hardest hit by this pandemic and will be one of the last to recover. Revive Live will jumpstart a portion of the local economy offering support to the live
music sector on the road to recovery.”

Mark Your Calendar: Phase One Events Include:

February 27 | Texas King with Sarina Haggarty from London Music Hall

March 6 | Sum-01 & DJ Hullewud with Partners in Health from 765 Old East

March 13 | The Rizdales with Musical Guests from The Richmond Tavern

March 20 | Uptown Affair with Delta Stone Duo from Eastside Bar & Grill

March 27 | Heart Attack Kids with Thunder Queens from Palasad SocialBowl

Phase One events will take place on Saturday nights with programming beginning at 8:00 p.m.

Those wanting to tune in can visit londonmusicoffice.com/ReviveLive for more information and
for links to the live streams.  All five of these events are free for all to view.

“Getting the full live music sector working again is a priority,” says Crossman. “Music is the
heartbeat to London’s cultural community and Revive Live is a commitment to safely bring back
London’s music ecology. It is important to invest in the talented people behind the scenes that
make the live music possible in our city.”

Revive Live is a united effort to support the revitalisation of London’s music sector. Principal
partners include the London Music Office, Downtown London, London Arts Council, London
Economic Development Corporation, Old East Village BIA and Tourism London.
