Swae Lee to host Instagram Live concert
The artist is performing virtually tonight (March 20).
Swae Lee is bringing his next concert to his fans. The “Someone Said” artist announced he’d be hosting a live show on Instagram Friday night (March 20) — a path that several singers have recently been taking in the wake of Coronavirus social distancing.
“Instagram Live concert tomorrow @8:00 free tickets see y’all then hitting the stage @8,” he posted on to the social media site Thursday (March 19).
The Rae Sremmurd duo-half was slated to hit the road with Post Malone for his Runaway Tour. However, since Live Nation postponed all tours indefinitely due to the Coronavirus, the pair’s shows were canceled.
Live Nation and AEG shared their postponing plans in a joint statement earlier this month.
“At this time, we collectively recommend large scale events through the end of March be postponed,” the companies said. “We continue to support that small-scale events follow guidance set by their local government officials. We feel fortunate to have the flexibility to reschedule concerts, festivals, and live events as needed, and look forward to connecting fans with all their favorite artists and live entertainment soon.”
Swae’s virtual performance will follow suit from the likes of John Legend, who played an Instagram concert on Monday (March 16) as part of Global Citizen and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Together, at Home” streamed concert series.
Earlier this week, Erykah Badu also announced plans for her own virtual concert series. The legendary singer’s “Quarantine Concert Series” will allow viewers to choose the songs she sings and be admitted virtual entry for $1.
Last month, Swae returned with his latest single and video, “Someone Said.” So far this year, he’s teamed up with Young Thug and Shenseea on “IDKW,” Chris Brown and French Montana on “Out Of Your Mind” and Arizona Zervas for a “Roxanne (Remix).” He also recently teased more solo songs and Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife 4.
