Singer-songwriter George “Joji” Miller has announced a “unique livestream event” to go down on Saturday at 9 a.m., with replays at 7 p.m. and 12 a.m. on video site Kaskus TV.
Dubbed The Extravaganza, the online event will not be broadcast again outside of those hours. Joji, who is also the show’s director, will perform songs from his sophomore album Nectar for the first time. The album was released on Sept. 25 to critical acclaim.
Recently, Joji published trailers related to The Extravaganza on his social media channels, from one that has him wearing a Minion costume to another where he rides a motorbike.
Tickets for the event are available for purchase on Blibli.com with prices starting at Rp 275,000 (US$18.74). After payment is completed, viewers will receive voucher codes as tickets to the event. One voucher code is valid to watch the livestream and its replays. Tickets are not refundable.
Managed by United States-based entertainment company 88rising, Joji began his career as a YouTube personality before focusing on music in 2017 and releasing his debut studio album Ballads 1 in 2018. His latest album, Nectar, topped the Spotify US Weekly Top 50 chart and reached third place on the Billboard 200.
He also collaborated with whisky manufacturer Johnnie Walker to launch Nectar-inspired The Honeycomb Highball Cocktail Courier Kit that consists of Johnnie Walker Black Label, Joji x Johnnie Walker bar spoon, honey and cocktail recipe for his fans of 21 years and above. (wir/wng)
