When you can’t go to the concert, the concert comes to you…


In the wake of our first weeks of isolating, there is an ever-expanding list of shows and musical events that you can enjoy from the comfort of your sofa, or bed – we won’t judge. Who says you have to go out to have a good time?

These historic times have led to an exciting surge in innovation from entertainers to reach us right in our living rooms with their creativity and skill. We’ve got you tickets for the best seats in the house with our list of the best upcoming streaming concerts from around the world.

Dress up for the occasion, close your eyes, and let the music transport you.
