On November 1st, Amy Macdonald launched her new album ‘The Human Demands’ with a special live stream event ‘An Evening With Amy Macdonald’. The show saw Amy and a stripped-back acoustic band debut a selection of new songs from the album along with some fan favourites to a small socially distanced audience at The Mildmay Club in Stoke Newington, London. Amy was also interviewed by a guest presenter and answered questions from fans. For more information: amymacdonald.co.uk
All profits from the event – which was over £10,000 – benefited the #WeMakeEvents charities and we extend a BIG THANK YOU to Amy and her team.
“People just don’t understand how much work it takes to put on one live show. My road crew is relatively modest and even then we have 20+ people grafting every day to make sure the shows go ahead, these guys leave no stone unturned and are regularly some of the hardest working people I have ever met. They don’t want handouts, they just want to work! We’re in a position where none of us can work right now and unfortunately without help and support the events industry will be completely decimated. It’s all good supporting music and theatre venues but without the people behind the events then these venues will be empty. Road crew are the lifeblood of our music industry. Time to give them the credit they deserve”.Amy Macdonald
‘The Human Demands’ is Amy’s fifth album, her first under a new deal with Infectious Music (alt-J, Garbage) / BMG, and was released on the 30th October.
