A year, a week and a day from their last live performance at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas, critically acclaimed alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World are excited to announce Phoenix Sessions, a global stream performance series in partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents.
To kick off 2021, the band will come together for one-of-a-kind performances of three “chapters” in their storied career. Beginning January 16th in Australia with a performance of their 10th studio album SURVIVING (Chapter X), which has only been seen live by the lucky fans who made it to the shows last October, followed by FUTURES (Chapter V) on January 30th and CLARITY (Chapter III) on February 13th. Recorded at the Icehouse in Phoenix, AZ, the virtual events will feature the band performing each album in its entirety for a full concert experience. Each show will start at 9am AEDT and will be available on demand for 72 hours post stream at JimmyEatWorldLive.com.
“We are always looking for ways to challenge ourselves, to do things as music fans that we think would be cool for OUR fans. We came up with the idea of presenting a series of concert films centred around a few specific albums (for now) and performing them on a different level. It isn’t the way we normally play a show and it’s definitely something new for how we approach a performance, but we haven’t been able to share the experience with our fans in over a year… so here we go!” – Jim Adkins
