LOS ANGELES , April 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the experience of streaming concerts gets even better as premium streaming platform, Veeps, released a suite of consumer apps that allows fans to enjoy live music shows from popular artists directly from the homescreen of their TV or mobile device. The apps go live with an incredible array of upcoming concerts including global dance superstar GALANTIS at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, the enduring folk rock music duo of INDIGO GIRLS, GRAMMY-nominated Icelandic blues-rock band KALEO (also live from Red Rocks), KINGS OF LEON'S upcoming sold out O2 Arena show in London, singer/songwriter LP at the Fillmore Philadelphia, GRAMMY-nominated artist POPPY from House of Blues San Diego, and a beautiful capture of SLASH Ft. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS - Live From Boston show.

The multi-platform release marks the most robust app coverage of all concert streaming services, with Veeps apps available for free download on Apple TV, Roku,iOS, and Android. While Veeps has always made live and on-demand concerts available via veeps.com, today's release puts premium quality live music directly into a viewer's TV without having to cast from a phone, screen-share or deal with annoying cables. And for those that love to watch shows from anywhere, the phone and tablet experience has been upgraded to the native app quality consumers expect from premium entertainment services. Concerts are available on a pay-per-view basis from directly within the apps.

"We think that the future of concert streaming is fans in all corners of the globe having access to every tour, and getting concert streams natively into TVs and phones is a gamechanger for artists and their fans. It puts Veeps shows right next to your favorite TV show, documentary or blockbuster movie and gives live concerts the same viewability and discoverability as any other type of premium content. Artists are already out there working and touring, so creating more opportunities for them to reach new and existing fans helps make the most of every tour. And the quality of our apps and the new platform makes these shows premium experiences for fans watching on Veeps. With Live Nation, we continue to build a network with global reach that will help artists continue to grow and we're excited about where this is going."

Joel Madden, co-founder of Veeps and frontman of Good Charlotte

With COVID heavily impacting live, in-person concerts over the last two years, consuming music livestreams has become firmly established fan behavior that is showing little signs of slowing down. A survey conducted in late 2021 indicated that as in-person concerts return fully, four out of five people planned to continue watching music livestreams. Over 90% of people also responded saying that they would purchase a livestream of a concert they wanted to see in person but couldn't attend — a key insight as artists look to expand their live audiences beyond physical tour stops. Analysis of Veeps ticket buyers of hybrid shows showed that around 90% of concert stream watchers were not in the local market of the in-person concert, indicating that streaming provides fans with greater access to their favorite artists.

Today's app release is yet another move from Veeps to guarantee that the world's best live music appears wherever people are consuming content all around the world. In March, Veeps was announced as the only concert streaming platform to be included in Verizon's new concert and entertainment hub, +play. This follows an announcement last year to install top-of-the-line camera equipment that enables turnkey livestreaming in a number of music venues across the U.S. — including House of Blues Chicago and New Orleans, The Fillmore in Philadelphia, Irving Plaza in New York, The Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington, and Dos Equis Pavillion in Dallas, TX. — in partnership with Live Nation.

Fans can access the Veeps apps for iPhone, iPad, or Android in the iOS or Android app stores, or on their TV by searching "Veeps" in the Apple TV or Roku app stores.

Embodying "alternative" in the truest sense of the word, she bleeds the boundaries between pop, progressive, and electronic underpinned by unpredictable time signatures shifts and heavy edge on her third full-length, I Disagree. I Disagree was a decisive document of her progression from internet phenomenon to musician of unparalleled aplomb, yielding critical acclaim in the form of cover stories for NME, Revolver, Kerrang!, Upset, TUSH and inclusion on several best of 2020 lists (#1 Upset, #12 Revolver, #19 Popbuzz, #23 Kerrang, etc.), as well as a GRAMMY nomination for Best Metal Performance (BLOODMONEY), making her the first solo female artist ever nominated in the category. Poppy premiered the title track from EAT (NXT Soundtrack) in an iconic performance for the GRAMMYs that left fans begging for more until the EP's surprise release as part of a major televised event in partnership with WWE. She followed the EAT EP with the single Her to much acclaim for both the song and its innovative music video. Flux came next, accompanied by its own imaginative video directed by Poppy and the announcement of a new album of the same name. So Mean followed with an additional self-directed video – ahead of the full album drop on September 24, 2021. Tickets for Poppy's livestream from House of Blues San Diegoare on sale now on Veeps.
