Sparta To Play Three Virtual Benefit Concerts


Sparta‘s Jim Ward will be performing a trio of virtual shows this month, with plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to the El Paso Community Foundation and the Black Lives Matter movement. The shows will be held across different time zones to accommodate global audiences, with the following dates booked:

June 12th – North America – 8pm MT / 10pm ET
June 12th – Europe – 8pm CEST
June 13th – Japan/AUS/NZ – 3pm AEST

Tickets for those performances can be obtained here. The band’s Jim Ward commented:

“I’m excited to play these songs in this format for everyone. We’ve been trying to find a way to connect and celebrate and thank everyone for their overwhelming support on the release of this record while staying safe, and this seems like the ideal space and moment.

Me and at least one guitar, playing three shows to cover as many time zones as I can in one day. In my mind I’ll be picturing all these cities I miss being in and all those faces I look forward to seeing again.

We’ll record these shows and send a link to each ticket buyer to get a mixed/mastered version of the songs I play- grab a drink, come hang out and sing along. I miss you all!”

Trust The River“, the group’s first new new album in roughly fourteen years, was released this past April.
