Concert season is cancelled.
I hate to be the bearer of such bad news but with everything happening with Covid-19, seems nobody is heading to a concert anytime soon. As most reports continue to suggest, we won’t be attending any concerts until at least 2021. I know it sucks. I myself had plans to attend some concerts this year so I know how you feel.
Earlier this year, I put together a list of the most anticipated concerts we were looking forward to. Since the pandemic several artists; Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Camila Cabello, and Niall Horan have either postponed or cancelled their tours and with good reason.
Concert venues are large public spaces where a multitude of crowds gather so the risk is just far too high. Our safety comes first so we should all understand. It doesn’t have to be all bad though. Just because your favorite artists are not touring right now, doesn’t mean you can’t still see them. I love live music so I went on a hunt to look for some concerts from some of our favorites that you can watch right in the comfort of your own home.
Here are 5 concerts to watch from home.
Billie Eilish – Acoustic Live From The Steve Jobs Theater Full Show
Billie Eilish was just starting her Where Do We Go world tour and was able to perform two shows early in March but once it became clear she would not be able to continue, all shows were immediately postponed. If you’re having Billie withdrawals, this show is the cure.
Billie along with her brother Finneas perform an entirely acoustic set. It’s one hour of pure magic. The backdrop and the setting are so nice and it’s just a great atmosphere and something we could all use. Billies voice is incredible and watching this concert put me in such a good mood. I guarantee this show will give you some great feels.

Halsey- Pandora Live
Halsey completed the international leg of her Manic tour literally right at the time all travel began being halted. Her US tour was to kick off in June, I say was because at this point there is no doubt in my mind her tour will be cancelled as well.
That being said, Halsey’s Pandora live show should tide you over for a bit. Not only does she perform songs from her albums Badlands, and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, you get a few of her songs off of her new album Manic. Now it’s not the full album since this show was before it released in January but if you’re a Halsey fan like me, you won’t mind that at all.

Niall Horan Flicker World tour 2018 Live From Amsterdam
Niall Horan is one of the latest artists to cancel his tour which is unfortunate because his album Heartbreak Weather was just released last month and it’s amazing. Since the pandemic began he hasn’t been able to fully promote the album but that’s okay because we are supporting him and will be here when it’s okay for him to tour again.
This live show is extremely entertaining. Niall knows how to have a good time and make sure his audience does as well. Not only does he perform songs from his Flicker album, he does a One Direction classic “Drag Me Down.” There’s even a cover of Camila Cabello’s “Crying in the club” as well.

Harry Styles Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball
Harry Styles postponed his Love On Tour shows which were set to kick off this month in the UK. At this time all of his European dates have been rescheduled for 2021. I am certain his North American dates will soon follow.
Checking out his performance at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball from last year may lift your spirits. Watching Harry prance around in his glittery blue jumpsuit for 20 minutes is quite enjoyable plus he just has such great stage presence and knows how to put a smile on everyone’s faces. For this show Harry performed ‘Lights up,’ ‘Adore you,’ and ‘Watermelon sugar’ off his new album Fine Line. Even if we don’t get to see him on tour just yet, watching him sing these songs will get you excited for the moment the tour can start back up.

FYI: For a double dose of Harry I also recommend checking out his NPR Tiny Desk Concert as well.
Camila Cabello Live From Austin City Limits Music Festival
Although this performance is from 2018 when Camilas self-titled album was out, it is definitely worth a watch. Camila is such a powerhouse onstage, her vocals are insane and she is one hell of a dancer. Her Romance album tour was set to kick off in May and I know it would have been amazing because her new album is one of my favorites.
If you’re a Camila fan whether you have watched this performance before or not, it will have you dancing wherever you are.
