Warner Bros. Records and the estate of Mac Miller have announced a handful of pop-up listening events taking place around the world this week for fans to hear Miller’s posthumous final album Circles. One of the pop-ups, in Sydney on Thursday, January 16, will allow fans to hear the record before it drops the following day. In order to gain access, fans are asked to “share your dedication on what Mac Miller and his music means to you;” tickets to the listening event will then be distributed at random to fans who share dedications. More details on the listening event are available here.
On Friday, January 17 — album release day — and Saturday, January 18, more listening events will take place in Pittsburgh, New York, and Los Angeles, presented by Amazon Music, with fans invited to “experience Circles via an immersive multimedia exhibition” where fans can hear the record and buy exclusive Circles merchandise. Entry to the events — taking place at 424 Suismon St in Pittsburgh’s North Side, at 91 Allen St in New York, and 700 N Fairfax in Los Angeles — is free; profits from merchandise sales will go towards the Mac Miller fund.
