Live shows are returning as Thailand enters Phase 4 of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, and leading concert and event organizer BEC-Tero Entertainment is joining forces with PM Center, the professional multimedia equipment supplier and the popular music streaming service JOOX to launch SoundBox Online, a series of online live shows, in July.
The first batch of live-streamed concerts will feature Slot Machine on 18 July, Max Jenmanaon on 24 July and Twopee Southside on 26 July. The online concert project is available for live streaming via the JOOX application. Tickets will be available on 30 June for Slot Machine and on 5 July for the Max Jenmana and Twopee Southside shows through all ThaiTicketMajor outlets or www.thaiticketmajor.com or call centre at 0-2262-3838.
Mr. Neil Thompson, BEC-Tero Entertainment Deputy Managing Director, said of the project, “As the concert organizer, our main focus will be the quality of the production – the sound, lighting and visual effects. What the viewers see on their screens must be an experience as close to attending a physical concert as possible, and it must be great value for money. We also need to provide staging that works with the artists’ images and allow them to connect to their virtual audience so they can deliver their very best performance. With our partners in PM Center, the leading live show production supplier and JOOX, the leading music streaming application which has huge numbers of users across different demographics, we and the artists believe that we can create an amazing concert experience for viewers. All of the online concerts will be live streamed in high definition, and starting in August a limited number of actual tickets will be on sale for fans to attend the concerts in person. When those in-venue ticket options become available, strict measures will be taken to ensure the health and safety of everyone in attendance.”
Mr. Sermkhun Kunawong, Chief Executive Officer of PM Center Company Limited, the leading multimedia and concert equipment supplier who have worked on concerts both in Thailand and abroad, commented about the collaboration, “Online concerts are an important music phenomenon in Thailand, responding cleverly to the necessary demands of today’s trends. These concerts will allow the audience to enjoy an exclusive experience with their favourite artists. PM Center is delighted to be the provider of three well-equipped streaming studios which can produce all kinds of events, especially concerts, with professional sound and lighting. We aim to lead the way in live streaming 'New Normal’ events with our technical specialists. Our leading digital technology will make online concert management easy and impressive.”
Mr. Peter May, Head of Entertainment & Multimedia Group, Tencent Thailand and executive of JOOX Thailand said, “During the five years that JOOX has been operating in Thailand, our objectives have been to drive the growth of the Thai music industry and to provide better music experiences to our users by developing new features and services, creating original content, and organising events. These have helped us become the #1 music community application in Thailand. The co-operation with BEC-Tero and PM Center to launch the SoundBox Online project reflects our objectives. The online concert project is the beginning of a new form of entertainment show which fits the current requirements. It will definitely offer an amazing live show experience to our audience.”
Slot Machine is excited to be kicking off the project. “We think this project is an amazing new form of concert combining virtual technology and live performance to create a new online concert experience for music fans. We are thrilled to be part of the project. We want to thank JOOX, PM Center and BEC-Tero for the opportunity,” the group said.
