Attend A Virtual Concert
With tours cancelled, musicians are taking to the internet to give their fans a more intimate concert experience. A-list stars including John Legend, Chris Martin and Pink all hosted free live performances on social media in the past week, and some, including Ben Gibbard and Christine and the Queens, are making it a daily occurrence. (See a running list of concerts here.) Gibbard is calling his performances “Live from Home” and is using the concerts to raise funds for a different nonprofit organisation each day.
In addition to brightening fans’ days, Martin and Legend performed as part of the World Health Organization and Global Citizen’s Together at Home campaign, an effort to raise money for WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to support healthcare workers and scientists working to contain the spread of the disease.
