Four-time Grammy Award winner Jason Isbell and Southeastern Records released the “Live at The Bend” live performance.
The performance was a few weeks ago in North Charleston, South Carolina. It featured a duo performance from Isbell and Amanda Shires.
“This special duo performance from @JasonIsbell and @amandashires was recorded just a few weeks ago at The Bend in North Charleston,” Southeastern Records wrote on Twitter. “‘Live at The Bend – North Charleston, SC – 11/7/20’ is now available for download on @Bandcamp.”
Isbell retweeted Southeastern Record’s tweet adding, “New show up!”
Jason Isbell Promises For Socially-Distant Concerts
The Caverns Above Ground Concert Series, featuring Isbell and The 400 Unit, marked the return of live music a few weeks ago in late October. The four-night run took place at the brand-new, COVID-ready The Caverns Amphitheater.
The shows seemed much more memorable than the typical concert. As the pandemic ravages the music industry, the majority of performers are streaming their shows live online.
Music enthusiasts were ecstatic while listening to the performances by Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit. They endured the rain and mud enjoying hits, such as “Cover Me Up” and songs from the newest album “Reunions.”
“I know it took a lot of planning to pull this off, but it was worth it,” Jason Isbell exclusively told Forbes. “I think it all comes down to what type of audience you draw. Our audience really seemed to appreciate experiencing live music again. They played by the rules and stayed safe. I couldn’t ask for more than that.”
Meanwhile, fans, staff and the band maintained social-distancing and abided by the highest safety orders. Guests wore masks at all times except when they were in their pods. Concessions and merchandise were ordered via an app with contactless delivery to each pod.
With guests arriving at staggered times, passing COVID-19 screening questions and receiving temperature checks, safety was of the utmost importance. 2-person, 4-person and 6-person pods with a minimum of six feet of distance between each other provided socially-distanced space.
