“It’s almost here… our 40th anniversary celebration is right around the corner!,” the band said on their official website. “We’re looking forward to hitting the stage in San Francisco at Chase Center with so many of our friends visiting from around the globe those two nights next week.

While we wish each and every one of you could join us, we know you can’t all be in the house. So we’re incredibly excited to announce that our friends at Amazon will be streaming both shows live, as they happen, worldwide and for free!”

The band revealed the 40th anniversary livestreams are “just the beginning” of their collaboration with The Coda Collection, with a full slate of concert films, documentaries, and other things expected to follow throughout 2022.
