Delivered, Live will kick off this Saturday evening (August 1) at 7:30pm AEST. In addition to live music, the program will feature a comedy set from Alex Ward and a recap on “the week that was” with comedian Sami Shah. The charismatic Henry Wagons will also return for hosting duties.
The event will be live-streamed in a similar fashion to last season; while the entire production is free to watch, viewers are encouraged to purchase a ticket through Oztix, with prices ranging from $20 to $250. All proceeds will go toward the performing artists and show crew, in addition to a live music venue and crew member of each act’s choice.
According to a statement, the first season of Delivered, Live sold 10,000 tickets and raised more than $190,000 in sales. Altogether, $888,000 was injected into the struggling music sector.
“The weekly show gave many creatives the chance to share their art and generate the feeling that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. The show gave hope to many businesses who were able to survive because of what was being produced,” the statement read.
