Performing on stage, in front of thousands of people can be nerve wracking, but also thrilling. It goes the same way for being in the crowd, watching the performance. The excitement, the adrenaline, and thrill all flow through the audience. However, due to the pandemic, concerts, tours, and performances around the world have been either cancelled or postponed. Still though artists have found a solution so that they can still perform for all their fans.

Multiple charity organizations such as : Global Citizen, Homefest, and Bang Bang Con have hosted stay at home concerts for multiple chart topping artists like Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, and Billie Eilish. Artists perform their biggest hits in the comfort of their own homes. For sophomore, Ella Hernandez, stay at home concerts are nothing short of innovative.

“The stay at home concerts are really creative and innovative. Since their fans cannot see them in concert live, this is just like another resort. It is also nice to see how this pandemic doesn’t stop artists from connecting with their fans through their music,” said Hernandez.

Fans and artists connect through many different ways. Whether it’s through social media, seeing them live, or by simply listening to and streaming their music. Stay at home concerts give audiences the opportunity to be a screen away from their favorite artists. Sophomore, Nyla Leath, feels these concerts away from a stage are just as meaningful.

“Even though I like going to concerts and seeing my favorite artists in real life, there are now some restrictions and precautions. It is still as meaningful to see them on screen, especially with this whole Coronavirus going around,” said Leath.

Though some fans are happy and satisfied with the stay at home concerts, other fans feel dissatisfied. Tours such as Camilla Cabello’s Romance tour, Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go tour, Trevor Daniel’s Nicotine tour, and others have all either been cancelled or postponed. Sophomore, Kami Chaddick, feels the disconnect with her favorite artists.

“I don’t feel the same connection because you cannot really do anything too exciting, like go on adventures with your friends, and just having the satisfaction of seeing them face-to-face isn’t there anymore,” said Chaddick.

During this era of quarantine and social distancing, people can still get entertainment and see their favorite artists perform. While it might not give off the same energy as watching your favorite artist in person, watching these artists through a screen is part of the necessary steps to practice social distancing, and eventually return to some state of normalcy.
