Live concerts you can stream while on COVID-19 stay-home notice

Live concerts you can stream while on COVID-19 stay-home notice

It's a tough time for the music industry right now. Gigs and concerts are being cancelled or postponed, and public gatherings are banned, turning many cities into ghost towns. 

As the music world contends with the pandemic and its ramifications, musicians are taking matters into their own hands and organising concerts for virtual audiences. From Code Orange—who livestreamed their record release show from an empty venue—to Yungblud, who ran a whole multi-segment production with live performances and games with Bella Thorne, Oliver Tree and Machine Gun Kelly, many artists have adapted and responded to the situation with impressive initiative, making it clear that one can practise social responsibility and still have fun at the same time. Looking at you, Florida beach-goers. 

As we adjust and try to make peace with social distancing or self-quarantine, here's a compilation of the live music shows you can stream and enjoy from the safe confines of your home. The list will be continually updated with links to more livestreams.
