2020 Playalong contest - danfromnj - 05-22-2020

Keeping up some interest in TSO, they have launched a playalong contest where you could win $1000 to go along with that $1200 government check:

Have you ever wanted to play with TSO?

Are you stuck at home practicing your instrument with nowhere to show off your skills (except to your frustrated household who keep telling you to turn it down)? Well we want to hear - and see - what you've got! You could win $1,000 for yourself and another $1,000 for the local UnitedWay COVID-19 Relief Fund!

TSO has provided the music tablature and play-along track for guitar, bass, drums, piano, and violin, for their hit, "Siberian Sleigh Ride." Simply record a video of yourself playing along on your preferred instrument with the music and upload it to YouTube.

I was wondering if there was going to be a tour this year??
Maybe some outdoor shows at football stadiums?
Half capacity? Only 1 show at night???

Nothing has been announced as of yet.  Lots of factors at play here that come into their decision-making process: What venues will be available, which venues will be only selling to partial capacity and will it make financial sense to play those, will testing be available for their folks as well as all local crew, whats the public confidence like to go to shows at that point, what kind of money will fans be able or willing to spend on tickets, etc.  A lot of factors, many of which are unknown at this time. 

They have never done an outdoor show in the Fall or Winter before - not sure if that is something they would consider.  If it made them money and everyone was kept safe (and warm!  Shy  ), then maybe it would be on the table of ideas if a full-fledged tour can't happen.

I was just thinking that would be an idea?
25k people in a football stadium, at the beginning of dark so the light show could work.
1 show a night,
Use a computer program to fill the seats using proper social distancing?
(Just an idea)
It would not work if it rained.
Snow would be cool !!!!
