Kaizers Orchestra Goes Out In Style, Live Online

September 5th 2013:

The rackety, rattling, fiery, greasy music train known as Kaizers Orchestra is about to enter its final destination - after 12 years of shack shaking, oil barrel breaking, trouble making journeying throughout Norway and Europe. But they will not go gently into that good night!

The concert in Stavanger on September 14th will be Kaizers Orchestra’s final performance before going on an indefinite hiatus. When tickets went on sale in February, all 5,500 sold out in eight minutes. To ease the pain for the rest of the fans, the band are now offering everybody a chance to be front and center at the once-in-a-lifetime event: Kaizers Orchestra partnered with LiveMusicStage.com and Monster, who will capture this final performance and stream it live online.

"Considering how quickly the show sold out, it is obvious that there are many who wanted to see the concert, but didn’t get a ticket. We would like for the entire family of Kaizers fans to be present at this special occasion. It feels great to be able to invite everybody in!" says Geir Kaizer.

The high-quality stream of the concert and the unique, simultaneous social online experience that LiveMusicStage.com offers is accessible both on desktop and mobile.

It costs 5 euros to watch at http://www.livemusicstage.com/kaizers. All major credit cards and PayPal are accepted.
