On New Year’s Eve, Live played their first show with founding vocalist Ed Kowalczyk in eight years. The concert was an invite only show that took place in their hometown of York, Pennsylvania at the Valencia Ballroom and broadcasted worldwide on Facebook Live.

Before the concert, the band credited York businessmen, civic leader, and philanthropist Louis Apell Jr. for getting the band back together. Evidently, Apell called band members Chad Taylor, Chad Gracey, and Patrick Dahlheimer into his office and said that “they needed to get their lead singer back,” which sparked the beginning of talks between founding vocalist Kowalczyk and the rest of the band. Live then played about an hour long set consisting predominantly of tracks from their 1994 breakthrough release Throwing Copper.

After a bitter breakup with Kowalczyk in 2009, Live brought in former Unified Theory vocalist Chris Shinn for 2014’s The Turn to mostly positive reviews.  However, last month, in a surprise turn of events considering the amount of bitterness that was revealed in the press after their breakup, Live revealed they would be reuniting with founding vocalist Kowalczyk and are currently working on new music to be released in 2017.
