The Streets’ Mike Skinner questions live-streamed gigs: “I
don’t think the technology’s there”, Shop Ticket Snatchers

The
Streets
‘ Mike Skinner has stated he’s not a fan of
live-streamed concerts, claiming the “technology isn’t there”
to present them as a real alternative to live music.

Speaking to
Sky News
in an interview published yesterday (July 11), Skinner
said he wasn’t averse to technology becoming a part of the live
music experience. “I don’t think it’s changed people at all.
It’s just helped them to communicate more, and that comes with
problems and advantages,” he said, regarding the use of smart
phones at concerts.

“I’m not massively into live-streamed gigs, though,” he
continued. “I think loud music is loud music, and loud music with
people is loud music with people. I don’t think that’s changing
anytime soon. I’m sure it will one day.

“But at the moment I don’t think the technology’s there to
do a live show [well] over the internet.”


The Streets were one of the first acts announced to perform at
drive-in live shows in the UK, along with Kaiser Chiefs and Dizzee
Rascal
, which are due to start at the end of July. Large
outdoor spaces in cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool and London
will play host, with 300 cars permitted for each event.

Last week (July 5),
Skinner said he “shouldn’t have played” at Bristol venue
Colston Hall.

The space is named after former slave owner Edward
Colston,but
is set to be renamed later this year
.

Speaking to the
Independent
, the artist said he felt “a bit guilty†about
The Streets performing at the venue. “Massive Attack
haven’t been playing there for years,†he said. “At the time,
I just thought it was just a name.â€
