Trivium Have Announced A Global Concert Streaming Experience
Given their colossal success on streaming platform Twitch, it’s no wonder that Trivium have been cooking up something special behind the scenes when it comes to delivering a virtual performance for fans in lockdown, and here it is: A Light Or A Distant Mirror.
The metal titans will be performing live from their hometown of Orlando, Florida at Full Sail Live, a state-of-the-art arena which will host the band’s brand-new production and visual show.
“We had to get creative when we heard there was no touring this summer,” Trivium explain. “We held off on the Zoom concerts and asked our creative/production team to come up with the biggest real-time live metal streaming event of the summer and what we now have to present to you is our show called A Light Or A Distant Mirror.

“This performance will be 100 per cent live and is not pre-taped. We will have a brand new epic stage set and lights, and we will bring it 100 per cent. We are thankful to our friends at Full Sail University, who are providing us a first-class performance arena and the Maestro broadcast team for streaming our show to the corners of the earth! We hope you can join us.”
“Hosting this virtual concert with Trivium is a true full circle moment for us on numerous levels,” continues Jay Noble, Full Sail University’s VP of Alumni & Event Production.
“Before its release, the album What The Dead Men Say was recorded on campus in our flagship professional recording studio, the Audio Temple, with Course Director Darren Schneider serving as a Recording Engineer. That experience allowed us to welcome home Full Sail graduate and Trivium guitarist, Corey Beaulieu, alongside the entire band including lead guitar and vocalist, Matt Heafy, who can recall recording at Full Sail during his teen years. Through our latest collaboration with Trivium, we are excited to bring this unique livestreamed musical experience to Trivium fans, our university community, and audiences around the globe, during a time when music is needed most.”
A Light Or A Distant Mirror takes place on July 10 from 8pm BST (3pm EST) – get your tickets here.
