King provided a statement about the series of shows:
“Putting on Four of a Kind is a welcomed challenge for the band and me. After a few months off the road and some time to recuperate, we want to get together and make some music. It is all very new to us, performing with no audience and still trying to bring the same energy as a full live show. With some help from some of our closest friends and new ones too, a lovely crew of masked, socially distanced AND socially conscious people, we’re excited to have something we can all feel proud of and share with you all!”
“We chose MusicCares as our charity for the event based on the amount of love and effort they have poured into the music community in times of need. They continue to help those that need it the most and we are thrilled to partner with them.”
There are options for viewing. Tickets are $10 per night, and there are more options if you’d like to purchase the entire run. Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project will match donations, up to a collective total of $10 million.
