Due to a health scare in their crew that temporarily halted production, the broadcast for Run The Jewels’ televised concert special Holy Calamavote has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 17th at Midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim. Although the crew member has been cleared of any COVID-19 diagnosis, the band have pushed back the airdate in order to ensure the strictest safety protocols are in place and observed during production.
The duo are also thrilled to announce that the televised performance will include a slew of guests eager to join in the show’s call to action for viewers to participate in the upcoming election, including musical contributions from Mavis Staples, Zack de la Rocha, and Josh Homme (with more to be announced soon), as well as comedian Eric Andre, who will be acting as the event’s official Master of Ceremonies. Holy Calamavote marks another major milestone for Run The Jewels, as they enter the rarified air of musicians with their own dedicated TV special. The telecast gives them the opportunity to present, commercial-free, the very first performance of their hit album RTJ4 to the airwaves in the wake of the album’s reception as one of the most prescient and important releases of the year.
In addition to the linear telecast, the performance will be simul-streamed on Adult Swim‘s website. The show will also be made available on the network’s YouTube channel immediately afterward, where fans will have the opportunity to donate to the ACLU.
