Billie Eilish Announces Livestream Concert
Livestream concerts are the new normal.
The latest artist to announce a paid live-stream concert is Billie Eilish. On Wednesday, October 7, Billie Eilish announced the "WHERE DO WE GO?" live-stream concert. The show is on October 24 at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale now through Live Nation. Tickets start at $30, which gets you access to the show, access to exclusive merch, and the option to watch the show on-demand 24 hours after the live-stream.
Each week, we have kept you updated on what alternative artists are performing free live-stream concerts. Artists like Jimmy Eat World, Linkin Park, Sofi Tukker, and Grouplove have all put on multiple free live-stream concerts. Sadly, these artists rarely perform anymore. We've seen a major drop off in live-stream concerts. And While live-stream concerts are still going on, fewer of them are free. This week alone, we saw paid live-stream concerts for Lit, All Time Low, and Cold War Kids appear on the lineup.
What do you think about the paid live-stream concerts? I have no problem with a socially distant outdoor concert, but paid live-stream is definitely not my thing. Socially distant concerts are already happening one state over in Connecticut. Tickets are definitely pricy because of the limited capacity, but there's not like being at a live show. Have you checked out one of these live-stream concerts before? What did you think? Have you been to a socially distant concert? If so, what did you think of that? One thing's for sure, I hope live-stream concerts don't stay the new normal.
