Full list of stay-at-home-concerts for those in self-isolation
This week Coldplay’s Chris Martin live-streamed a mini concert while self-isolating from his home, and now many other musicians are scheduling shows of their own.
The show was meant to entertain those currently social distancing or in self-isolation, and Martin’s was one of the more creative ways to cope.
So yes, while you may be sitting home alone waiting for the coronavirus to settle – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of your favourite artists.
