The novel coronavirus pandemic has made us stay back home for days, forgetting which day of the week we are in. The lockdown makes all the weekdays and weekends look alike. We’re only a few weeks into our new coronavirus reality of social distancing and social isolation and already people are coming up with creative ways to cope. It’s obviously been disappointing for many fans to have concerts from their favorite artists canceled or postponed but their artist chosed a creative way to entertain their fans.
Here are list of the artists whose concert and live performances were witnessed online or scheduled for future days.
Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS)
BTS is the Korean pop group and they hosted an at-home concert to make up for all their absence of concerts around the world due to the ongoing deadly disease. The K-pop band showcased a marathon of their concerts held from 2015 to 2017 in the Bang Bang Con and everyone will be able to watch these videos on YouTube for free. The Korean superstars announced the online concert in an official tweet last week. As mentioned in the tweet, the online concert refreshed some of the finest memories for the BTS Army with events including the BTS 2014 Live Trilogy: Episode II The Red Bullet (2014 Memories), BTS Live On Stage (2015), the 2016 BTS Live On Stage: Epilogue, Wings Tour live in Seoul in 2017 and 2018’s BTS World Tour: Love Yourself show.
Lady Gaga partnered with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization to launch One World: Together at Home to help raise funds for COVID-19 relief. Gaga had curated the set, which included Elton John, John Legend, Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Kacey Musgraves, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and many more stars. On April 14, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Shawn Mendes, Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello, Sam Smith, Usher, and Pharrell Williams were announced as additions to the mega-star lineup. The broadcast, was hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert, will also feature doctors and nurses from around the world.
Gaga is doing all the fundraising ahead of time and has already raised over $35 million. In an April 6 press conference, Gaga said the concert is meant to “tell the stories of and celebrate the front line communities, health care workers and their acts of kindness.”
The two-hour fundraising special will aired on NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and more networks, streaming services (like AT&T TV Now, YouTube TV, Fubo TV, Sling TV and Locast), and social platforms on Saturday, April 18, from 8 to 10 p.m. ET.
Chris Martin decided to play a little concert from home on Coldplay’s Instagram Live (which you can still view). He even took requests from commenters and played hits like “Green Eyes,” which fans haven’t heard at live shows as much in recent years.
The crooner took a sign from Martin and conducted lovely little concert from home which was viewed by millions of fans online.
After having to cancel a number of tour dates, the folk-rock duo went live on Facebook and played a low key, home grown set of songs and talking to people directly through Q and A.
Pink is letting the world in as she learns how to play the piano and entertaining her fans all at the same time. Her rendition of “To Make You Feel My Love” is stunning. She hosted “Free concert slash piano lessons “for her fans around the world.
Shwan Mendes and Camillo Camelli
Here are some list of musicians performed livestream concerts. The list includes Miguel, Jhené Aiko, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, and Charlie Puth, Mandy Moore and so on. They all are singing for their fans and it is such a beauty to see.
