(DE)TOUR brings together the brightest stars of the music world in order to combat widespread tour cancellations and continued financial uncertainty faced by thousands of music industry professionals.

"Morrison Hotel Gallery is doing what it does best: reminding people of the power of music and community," says Timothy White, co-owner of Morrison Hotel Gallery. 

Rolling Live founder Kerry Brown also points to the transformative power of music during times of need. "Life may take a detour," says Brown, "but rock and roll never does."

With (DE)TOUR, Morrison Hotel Gallery takes the new normal to the next level, offering patrons all-day, unlimited access to YouTube Live streamed performances of festival headliners. Stars will deliver intimate performances from their own homes, as well as stunning shows from the otherwise vacant stages of legendary music venues throughout the nation, including New York City's Bowery Electric, West Hollywood's Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy Theatre, and the Viper Room – with numerous surprise stops and celebrity guests along the way. (DE)TOUR will be hosted by Spotify Global Head of Rock Allison Hagendorf and famed MTV/VH1 personality Matt Pinfield.

An all-access experience tailored for music fans, (DE)TOUR is created to honor and assist music's unsung heroes. With no cost for admission and donations accepted in real time via YouTube Live and Facebook Live, Spotify will match donations to MusiCares® dollar-for-dollar up to a collective total of $10 Million through its Covid-19 Music Relief project, with all proceeds being split between MusiCares® and NIVA.

Spotify has also created a special (DE)TOUR playlist featuring songs from the performers — listen HERE.

A special VIP Fundraiser Experience with exclusive merchandise and a backstage Zoom meet & greet will be offered via NoCapshows.com next week.

The Recording Academy® and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares® established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help their peers in the music community affected by the coronavirus pandemic. While the Recording Academy is best known for the GRAMMY Awards telecast, it serves the music community year-round by providing emergency aid through MusiCares®, as well as performing advocacy work to protect musicians' rights. 

Formed in the days following the shutdown, NIVA works to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters throughout the United States. Independent venues exist in every state across the country. They were the first to close, have zero revenue, enormous overhead, and there's no view into when they can reopen. When surveyed, 90% of NIVA members reported that if the shutdown lasts six months or longer and there's no federal assistance, they will be forced to shutter forever. To enable their 2,500 members' survival, NIVA is advocating for the passage of the bipartisan Save Our Stages Act and RESTART Act. People can contact their elected representatives through SaveOurStages.com to ask them to support these bills.
