Coheed and Cambria have confirmed their most ambitious live performance yet: "Neverender, a.k.a. all four of their concept albums played front to back over four nights in Los Angeles and New York City. According to a press release, "each night's production will be specifically catered to the record being performed." Tickets to each event go on sale this Friday, July 18, at 1 p.m. EST through Ticketmaster. Standard seats will be available, as well as limited VIP packages that include tickets to all four shows, early entry, a fancy lil' laminate, an exclusive poster, and an intimate acoustic set/meet and greet with the band. Oh, about those VIP packages—they are available tomorrow at 1 p.m. EST. So start scrounging for pennies, Coheed fans!
"Neverender came about because the band wanted to celebrate the end of the Coheed and Cambria saga in a special way," frontman Claudio Sanchez said in a statement. "We wanted to come up with an idea that paid proper respect to this phase of our career, while at the same time gave our fans something truly unique and different. Many of these songs have never been played in front of an audience before so I think we're going to be freaking out at the same time our fans are. It's going to be a major challenge. We're psyched our fans have been so loyal and amazing. We figured they deserved this."
Next up for Coheed once these shows are done and the saga is closed? A "prequel to the Armory Wars." Don't worry. We're as confused (and intrigued) as you are.
