The concert industry has been shut down over coronavirus concerns, with shows being postponed for most of the next two months. But a few artists are not letting that stop them from bringing the music to you.
Martin teamed with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization, interacting with fans and performing songs from his home on Instagram Live as part of the #TogetherAtHome program on Monday.
On Tuesday at 4PM ET / 1PM PT, John Legend will be following Martin’s lead, sharing his own live performance with fans who are self-quarantined. "My friend Chris Martin did a lovely little concert from home today. I'll be doing one tomorrow at 1pm Pacific time. See you soon,” Legend shared on Twitter. “We'll try to get through this together!”
Meanwhile, Country star Keith Urban took to the basement of his Nashville home on Monday, to deliver his own private performance to fans at home. With Nicole Kidman standing by, Urban played his own intimate set only for Instagram.
The concern over coronavirus has also sidelined several plans for St. Patrick’s Day, including concerts from the Dropkick Murphys. The band did not play this past weekend for the first time in 24 years, but they’re not letting the holiday get away from them.
The band will be doing a special St. Patrick’s Day webcast on Tuesday night, streaming a full concert to keep everyone in good spirits.
Stay tuned for more special performances, as more artists find a way to bring music to fans during this tough time around the world.
