Frankie opens a 6-week “Virtual Residency” sponsored by Gibson Guitars at The Craig Ranch Regional Park Amphitheater in North Las Vegas. These shows are the very first production in the world to assemble a full band in a large-scale venue during the COVID-19 era.
“I’ve certainly missed performing live,” Moreno says. “I’m sure every musician out there feels the same. We wanted to find a way to do something special and stay connected with everyone. When they called me about this idea, I was 100% in”.
Moreno and his band plays the amphitheater with a 7,500-person capacity, which is totally empty aside from a few members of the production team, sound and crew. The show streams live on Facebook and reaches over 1,000,000 viewers.
Frankie gives away a brand new guitar during every show to a random selected viewer. He also releases a new single that drops immediately following each live stream. Every one of these singles hit the Top-10 on the iTunes U.S. Charts, and all of the proceeds are given to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for first responders and frontline workers.
