With the lack of live performance venues performers have been doing their thing with streaming video on the internet. Most of it is a person in front of a camera with no production value. Yesterday was St. Patrick’s day and The Dropkick Murphy’s live streamed a show that would normally have an audience and it was amazing.
You can watch it here:
Besides really setting the bar for a live streamed show, they also were a lesson in how to perform. You should be able to perform like it’s a stadium for no one. I know it’s strange when you don’t get the feedback from the audience, however they way they performed it was as if to a full house. It’s clear that when the rehearse, they rehearse like they are playing to a crowd. They way the pause after a song, they’ve been there and planned to be there.
Look at how you practice, are you simply going through the motions or are you doing it like you’re actually doing a show?
