    I have a feeling this is going to be one new normal moving forward. It certainly can make it possible for people to see acts whose concerts might be difficult to attend.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Well, it's sort of live streaming. It's actually a concert they recorded in january, being shown for the first time on Friday. But the IQ boys will be chatting live.

    Am I right in thinking the initial live streaming will be at 3:00pm on the US east coast? Or am I reading it wrong?

    My Google calendar adjusted to 4pm east coast when I put in 8pm GMT. London time is +1 from GMT, so that must be because of DST? Not completely sure. They said the stream would be available for a week.

    It says it'll be available for a week. Since I'm offline every weekend and most weekdays I'll check it out sometime time next week when I finally get back online.

    It is a nice gesture from the band to allow viewing this concert at later times after the original streaming dates of May 22-23.

    So if you can't see it those days, you can always go their website https://www.iq-hq.co.uk/index.php/253-streaming-event to view it at a later date.

    I would be curious to know how many people have watched this concert for 2 hours. Great music, but I didn't like the lighting set up, cheap unwatchable typical of small clubs. After an hour, I stop watching and just listening in my headphones.

    I guess that's why they have not released it commercially.
    I've grabbed an HD download and it isn't too bad.
    They aren't visually eye-catching anyway, it's the music that counts.

    At one point during the Premiere showing, I saw the viewing total reach 1200 people at the highest. It dropped down into the 1100s after that. I'm sure it will pick up a lot more views during the free week's viewing window.

    I haven't had a chance to see this video yet but am looking forward to it.
    We saw IQ in Bury a couple of weeks before this show and the set looks the same (+one extra song).
    At the same venue in 2018 they played two prototype "Resistance" songs which were referred to as "Mome" and "Flent" at the time - anyone know which songs these eventually became?

    As to the quality, the sound was excellent, with a good live mix. The lighting and camera exposure settings were a bit iffy at times. Wisely they are not releasing it commercially. You could call it an official bootleg.

    It was one guy who filmed the show and the Colos-Saal gets PACKED...i'm talking shoulder to shoulder sardines in a tin type of thing! He set that camera up at the back and it's totally overexposed BUT he wouldn't have been able to get back to it when the show started to make adjustments. If that camera would have been correct it would have been a really good video, he did a decent job all round. The band get people offering to record shows all the time and they have a lot of footage that just goes in the archives.

    If they were going to do a proper shoot, it'd most probably be at the Boerderij in Holland who have a tremendous lighting setup and they would obviously have a proper video crew.

    Mike was just watching this show a couple of months ago and thought it'd be a pretty cool thing to just throw out there during these crazy times. Rob recorded the sound so obviously that was top notch.

    I personally think they should just leave it up on YouTube permanently, I think it's a great promo for the band.

    Mome = Fire and Security
    Flent = Fallout

    Thanks for the info, I'll try to watch it soon.
    Resistance is still growing on me with each listen.

    Watching it now from their website. The picture quality it a bit fuzzy, probably due to the lighting effects. Sound is great. Performance is awesome. Probably the only way I'll be able to see their show.

    They did their Frequency concert video at Boerderij in Holland*years ago and the quality of sound and vision was very good for DVD.

    Scrape Across the Sky, their first BluRay concert video from 2016 was also very good.

    We watched the concert later in the evening after the first showing and enjoyed it quite a lot.
    I thought the visuals were good and agree, the mix was wonderful. We watched it on our 55" Sanyo LED and I think it looked great, sound was played through our audio system, not the TV.
    There was some synching issues between the visual and sound towards the end, which threw everything off, but it didn't bother us because the music was so good.

    Thank you so much for sharing this great show with us IQ.

    Be sure to read the chat too, as all band members contributed to it during the stream, commenting on the songs. And some other lurkers were noticed like Tobias Lundgren (ex-Moon Safari)!
