Given the state of the world right now, it’s highly unlikely that live concerts will be coming back anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean people won’t be able to watch their favorite artists perform live until the concert and touring industry returns to a modicum of normalcy.
The show goes on. Virtually.
Many performers from all over the world have studios in their homes, which allows them to stream at-home shows for their fans amid the coronavirus crisis and take part in virtual events.
It’s also quite common for music bands to resort to local studios or rehearsal halls to live stream concerts.
Some big names in the entertainment industry are already embracing the opportunities of virtual concerts and taking their shows online.
