With a raft of shows at the recently reopened Lizotte’s selling like literal hotcakes, you can be forgiven for feeling a little bummed if you missed out on tix to one of the already sold-out shows.
Well, never fear Novocastrian gig pigs because the good folks at the iconic Lambton venue have got you covered.
In addition to kicking off their calendar again with a string of great shows, the venue has also implemented a live streaming services for many of those shows so you can drink in the Lizotte’s ambiance wherever you please!
“We are ecstatic to be re-opening our doors to our loyal patrons and the amazing artist’s that grace our stage” owner Brian Lizotte said.
“Whilst the lockdown has been tough for so many people and businesses, especially those in hospitality and the arts, it’s given us the time, motivation and ability to re-jig our business model to ‘permanently’ have a Streaming option in place for artists that wish to have this available to their fans.”
Brian added that not only will this option give audiences another way to experience a live show, it also gives the participating artists another much-needed income stream.
“Streaming for us will be here to stay well past COVID-19”, Brian said.
