Speaking from the bands’ HQ, ASLAN guitarist Billy McGuinness said ”With the gig selling out in a few hours a lot fans who have supported the band for years were not able to get tickets. It was not possible to add any more nights, as the artists who are appearing would not be available. So we are delighted to confirm we will be streaming the gig live around the world in venues where we have performed in the past from the US to Australia, Europe to Dubai. This type of gig will never happen again so its great to give people a chance to see it by streaming it live from the Olympia. ENJOY’
