All the best content to keep you entertained in isolation
Around the world concerts, like all large gatherings, have been cancelled and I don’t know about you, but I have watched everything on Netflix and I’m constantly falling down random Youtube rabbit holes. Finding new content isn’t always easy but we’ve got the best new quarantine content for you, right here.
Artists like Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, John Legend, Billie EIlish, Bon Jovi, etc, have been involved in several live virtual concerts, whether it be a virtual music festival or just playing acoustic on Instagram live, artists have been keeping busy while staying safe at home.
The latest virtual music festival is Evan Duran’s Stay at Home Ball on Youtube which featured artists from Charlie Puth and Pete Wentz, to Kesha and Thomas Rhett and is raising awareness for Project C.U.R.E.. On Facebook, you can watch artists like Josh Groban, Kenny G, and Hozier perform on Billboard: Live at Home, but Hozier also has also been streaming his own live performances on Facebook and Instagram where he raises money for charities around the world. PlayOn Fest featuring Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, Panic! At the Disco, Green Day, Coldplay, Lil Uzi Vert, etc reassures us that “Music is Not Cancelled” and all merchandise sales will go toward supporting the World Health Organization.
There are a good number of other concerts and virtual festivals going on right now which also support charities: Jersey 4 Jersey benefit concert features artists from New Jersey like Bruce Springsteen, raising money for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund. The Living Room Concert for America hosted by Elton John honoured medical workers and raised funds for Feeding America and the First Responders’ Children's Foundation. Verizon’s Play It Forward supported local businesses affected by closures due to the pandemic and Post Malone’s Nirvana Tribute raised funds for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Other concerts to check out are Rolling Stone’s In My Room IGTV series and One World: Together at Home hosted by Lady Gaga.
If you’re missing all the interviews with celebrities, you may find these virtual interviews even better than the ones hosted on sets. It feels good to take these celebrities off of their public eye pedestals for once and watch them in normal clothes and staying at home and talking about how they are just as bored and worried as the rest of the world. Check out Jimmy Kimmel’s “Quarantine Monologue”, James Cordon’s “Checkin In”, which encourages viewers to donate to the CDC Foundation and Feed the Children, and Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show: At Home Edition”.
