Global reach for Jefferson Starship concert in White Rock on Earth Day

WHITE ROCK — Jefferson Starship’s concert here next Tuesday will be beamed to viewers around the world via the internet.

The psychedelic-rock band will do a special Earth Day performance at Blue Frog Studios, starting at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the webcast are $8, with part proceeds destined for the Earth Day Network (earthday.org), “for a greener planet.” To sign on, visit http://www.bluefrogstudios.ca/live.html.

All of the $90 tickets for the concert are now sold out.

Blue Frog studio boss Kelly Breaks said the $8 will allow people to watch the show from the comfort of their living rooms.

“We have the Earth Day Network behind us, so we are hoping a few of their 145,000 (Facebook) followers will watch from around the world,” Breaks told the Now. “Should be interesting to see.”

The Paul Kantner-led Jefferson Starship was launched in the early 1970s by former members of Jefferson Airplane. Jefferson Starship is not to be confused with the subsequent spinoff band Starship, the ‘80s-era makers of “We Built This City” and other horrible pop songs.
