The coronavirus pandemic has caused a lot of canceled shows, plans and traditions in 2020. However, it looks like there is one tradition August Burns Red still plan to take part in.
August Burns Red’s annual Christmas show is really happening this year. However, they are doing things a little bit differently this time around.
Along with their hard-hitting original songs, August Burns Red are known for their heavy covers of some Christmas favorites. Since 2006, the band have put on their annual Christmas Burns Red holiday show in their hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They even put on a full-on Christmas festival in 2019 that included Miss May I, Like Moths To Flames and Currents among others.
Now, it looks like they are carrying on the tradition this year, but are doing things a little bit differently. On Monday, August Burns Red confirmed in a hilarious video that the Christmas Burns Red 2020 show is on its way.
However, in order to make it all happen, a few changes have to be made. Instead of holding an in-person concert, August Burns Red are taking their annual show digital for a new virtual livestream event.
The virtual Christmas Burns Red 2020 show is happening on Dec. 12 at 5 P.M. PT/8 P.M. ET. Tickets for the event are available here and start at $15. As well, the band have released exclusive merch just for the upcoming show.

Over the weekend, fans got a little taste of what’s to come for the virtual holiday show. The band celebrated the 15th anniversary of Thrill Seeker with a special virtual concert full of performances of “Endorphins,” “Consumer” and “Eve of The End” among others.
