I guess that I understand they need to make money SOMEHOW, but...I don't see how watching this is any different from watching a free Youtube "full concert" video.

You're supporting a band you like, trying to ensure they come out the other side still able to be a band. These bands don't really have a lot of options these days. Music doesn't sell, and most merch sales take place at concerts. Their revenue is drying up. If you have some disposable income to spread to some of your favorite bands in a way they'll actually see (things like this and Bandcamp purchases come to mind), now is the time.

^ asking a question like 'how is this different' just makes it obvious you don't know any musicians

I'm not saying people SHOULDN'T support them, I hope they do. And I'm not questioning why a band would want to do this...but people are barely willing to spend money on music when there's not an economic collapse, so I guess I just wonder how many people would be willing to spend money on watching a stream. I must have missed the bit about the live Q&A thing the first time I read the article, that's definitely a nice value proposition that would make the experience more worth the money.

Most people won’t pay for it but some will and they’ve gotta try and get by. Seems highly non controversial

I mean...I guess it's worth a shot, right? Have other bands been doing this sort of thing to great success?

One nice thing about this is that EVERY fan can tune in at once, instead of just the fans that live in a specific area.

yes, many bands are pivoting to this model. live music is likely out for 2020 so this is the only way many of them will survive

I think a lot of people use the excuse that they've bought a T-shirt and a ticket to the concert, so they can just steal the album. Right now they can't do that and most people are smart enough to know that if they don't support their favorite mid-tier and lower (monetarily speaking) bands, they may not be able to come back from this. Especially the ones that already had concerts booked and crews ready.
