Back on Halloween Umphrey’s McGee teamed up with StageIt from webcast their All Night Wrong show from Maryland after the effects of SuperStorm Sandy led AXS TV to cancel a televised simulcast planned for the performance. Apparently both companies were happy with the broadcast as they are teaming up to stream all four Umphrey’s New Year’s Run performances live from The Tabernacle in Atlanta.

The way StageIt works is that you buy “notes.” For $1 you get 10 notes. A “ticket” to webcasts for the first three shows cost 60 notes a piece (aka $6) while New Year’s Eve will run you 80 notes (aka $8). Fans can interact with the band via chat and contribute tips via a virtual tip jar. Just like the Halloween show, the stream will be via a Single HD camera from “front of house,” with soundboard audio. As of now 1,000 tickets remain for each of the four shows. Head to StageIt’s UM site to pre-order the webcasts.
