These trying times might have restricted travelling, but enjoying some soulful music and going to concerts definitely cannot wait. The good news is that musicians and performers have taken their shows and concerts to digital platforms and are now hosting them online. So don’t miss a chance to catch these virtual concerts and online shows as several musicians from all across the globe take to the internet to entertain their audience.

All you music lovers, here are six different kinds of concerts that you must catch this month.

Virtual Concerts

K-pop groups too have taken to this new normal and many of them have hosted several virtual concerts and shows. Many performance adaptations provide alternative forms of entertainment amid COVID-19 restrictions without necessarily carving out a market share beyond COVID. Hyundai, for example, hosted a three-day Stage X Drive-In concert in Seoul in late May 2020 where the audience was seated in their cars, maintaining social distancing rules as they watched the performance. BTS, EXO and many other popular Korean bands had hosted their online concerts and shows to entertain their fans and spread cheer and solidarity.

Playing the Cello from a very tender age of four is not an easy job and Camille Thomas has done just that and has gone on to win honours and accolades for her incredible talent. The 32-year-old musician has released her latest album, ‘Voice of Hope’ from a rooftop in Paris on July 25 and it has gone on to be a massive hit. Head to her YouTube page to see the performance. 

A bunch of Latin American musicians revamped the entire concert scene by performing one-to-one concerts for essential workers and COVID-19 workers. Brazilian musician Seu Jorge sang David Bowie's 'Life on Mars' at a concert venue in São Paulo for Camila, a nurse, to celebrate her service during the pandemic. Following suit, many others joined in and the concert was staged by creative agency GUT and MJZ/Labhouse director Juan Cabral (of Cadbury "Gorilla" fame) for e-commerce company Mercado Libre. Catch a glance of the video here.

In another first, The Who will release a series of live footages of their concerts on YouTube as part of the charity show with ‘Join Together@Home’. The six-week celebration of the band’s anniversary will see the release of weekly videos from their 1980s shows and performances, starting from Aug 6. Although the show is free, the band is asking for donations for Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America. So, head to their YouTube channel for the shows.
