Fountain is one of the many artists affected by the recent red light setting implemented in January, which resulted in the cancellation of her Iris album tour. She has been a strong voice in the Save Our Venues campaign throughout what seems to be one of the most challenging times in the live music scene in Aotearoa. She writes:
"The band and I haven’t had a chance to perform live since Flying Nun’s 40th Anniversary show in August last year … it’s been ages and we miss playing so much.
Under current health restrictions, it’s hard for folks in the event industry to do what we love. That’s why we’re teaming up with Whammy Bar to bring you two nights of entertainment ‘red light setting’ styles. 60 tickets only available each night as we’re adhering to all health and safety guidelines to keep everyone safe; so if you’re all vax’ed up be in quick to get yourself a grand night of entertainment whilst supporting our local venue to stay afloat. x" — Reb Fountain
Her announcement last night reveals the silver lining - a ticket to a unique seated event at the iconic Whammy Bar to truly take in the mystique of her live performance.
Tickets are available here via Undertheradar.
