On the heels of their #2 debuting new album, IF NOT NOW, WHEN?, INCUBUS is gearing up for the U.S. leg of their tour hitting over 30 cities. The tour kicks off with a sold-out show at RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATER in DENVER on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17th. Back in 2004, the band recorded a highly successful concert DVD, LIVE AT RED ROCKS, and to commemorate the event and the launch of the US tour the band will be giving fans across the world access to their first show of the tour live at www.livestream.com/incubus.
Leading up to the launch of the new album, INCUBUS has been using a number of cutting edge web technology products to connect with their vast fan base as part of their groundbreaking week-long web event called "HQ LIVE" from JUNE 30th to JULY 6th. The success of the band’s social media site www.incubushq.com spawned the week of live concerts and band interaction with their fans broadcast live on the web that helped launch the new album. INCUBUS is now taking the "HQLive" concept on the road using an exciting mobile streaming backpack called LiveU.
The LiveU device transmits broadcast-quality live video from anywhere by bonding multiple cellular connections, allowing roaming videographers equipped with only a portable backpack and camera to cover on and off the stage activities, while getting real-time feedback from fans via social media.
In addition, the band will be setting up an IncubusHQ "meeting point" at every tour stop where IncubusHQ members can gather and meet other fans from around the country.
