The weather may be cooling off as autumn gets rolling, but livestreamed concerts and events are still going strong.
This week’s shows include the first of two sets by Machine Gun Kelly, BLACKPINK’S pre-album release event, a music festival to get out the vote, and much more.
Since the global coronavirus pandemic began, artists around the world have canceled tour dates. Instead, they’ve been playing sets from home, and more recently, streaming from empty venues to keep fans entertained as people stay home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Below is a list of some of the musical performances to enjoy from your couch this week. As more events are announced, we’ll add them to this list.
