Papa Roach may not have been able to cut their summer and fall tour plans short, but the band is ready to bring you a special show this afternoon (Oct. 23), and you can watch it live. The group has teamed with YouTube for a live performance and question and answer session and you can watch it in the video below. It'll mark the band's first performance since singer Jacoby Shaddix underwent vocal surgery several weeks ago.

Shaddix says, "As you know we had to pull off the Uproar Tour because I had to go get vocal surgery, so we were really bummed out about that and we wanted to do something special for the fans out there, so we partnered up with YouTube and we're gonna perform live on"

The event takes place today (Oct. 23) at 5PM ET/2PM PT. Shaddix adds, "We'll be playing a bunch of new songs, answering your questions, so if you've got questions, leave them in the comment box and we'll be sure to try and get to as many of those as we can."

Papa Roach announced the event earlier this month, and a number of fans who signed up to attend will be there in person to catch the band's live performance. The group is promoting their latest disc, 'The Connection.' It's already spawned the hit single 'Still Swingin,' plus the standout track 'Before I Die' is beginning to get some attention, as well.

Loudwire is offering fans the chance to win an autographed copy of 'The Connection' CD + a signed mini Louisville Slugger baseball bat, too. Enter below for your chance to win:
