On Jan. 29, The Kinks will share a special, one-time-only live stream event on the classic English band‘s official YouTube channel.

Titled The Moneygoround, the one-man-show is a 45-minute play co-written by Ray Davies and Paul Sirett, and is timed to coincide with the Kinks’ ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations of 1970’s Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One.

Here’s a trailer for the special streaming event:

Said Ray Davies in a statement:

“The Moneygoround’ is a one-man show documenting a character facing the challenging circumstances of making an album under extreme pressure. This play, similar to a psychodrama, follows the ups and downs of the character as he plays out events in his life. He confronts the dark forces surrounding him after falling into an emotional and financial “hole” eventually he is saved by a song after confiding in his friend, Lola.”

More on the show:

This unique audio-visual production has been intimately filmed with the Actor Ben Norris as the leading Character – The presentation will also feature video content inserts of archive footage.  The whole show will also include the “Any Time 2020” lyric video, the “Lola” Unboxing Video, and the “Lola” lyric video.
