Here Are All the Livestreams & Virtual Concerts to Watch During the Coronavirus Crisis: Week of June 29

As we head into the Fourth of July holiday weekend, we average folks might be prepping the hot dogs and potato salad for a socially distanced celebration, but some musicians are getting ready for their livestream sets instead.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage around in the United States, leading to a slowing of re-openings — and in some cases, renewed shutdowns — musicians are continuing to connect with their fans from a safe distance via livestream performances. That includes Patti LaBelle, Trace Adkins and many others for PBS’ 40th annual A Capitol Fourth, which is going virtual this year due to the pandemic.

Below, check out the livestreams you can enjoy from your couch this week. We’ll update this list as more events are announced.

June 29: Katie Crutchfield’s Waxahatchee is performing Out in the Storm in its entirety beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Tickets are $15, and benefit Kansas City’s Art As Mentorship. The show will be streamed at NoonChorus.com.

June 30: Jimmy Eat World, Sam Fisher and more are performing for RCA Records and the Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Pride Benefit Concert. The event begins at 4 p.m. ET, and streams on RCA’s YouTube page.

July 1: Eric Benet is doing a 90-minute set called “Eric After Dark” that will include fan-favorite songs and a Q&A.  Jon B. will also be performing. The livestream begins at 11 p.m. ET on EricAfterDark.com.

Jeff Rosenstock of punk band The Arrogant Sons of Bitches and indie group Kudrow plays a 20-song set of fan requests on Instagram Live. The set is free, but song requests will be $2 each, with proceeds going to Black Lives Matter causes. “I want to raise some money to assist the people who are fighting hard for equality in America,” he explained in an Instagram post. The stream begins at 9 p.m. ET.

July 3: Zac Brown Band kicks off the long weekend with a livestream concert benefiting Camp Southern Ground. “Not only do we have the opportunity to perform for our fans for the first time in a while, but more importantly, we can raise crucial funds that support the mental health and well being of our veterans,” said Zac Brown, who founded the non-profit. The show begins at 8 p.m. ET, and can be streamed on the band’s YouTube and Facebook pages.

July 4: PBS’ A Capitol Fourth will be livestreaming here on July 4 at 8 p.m. ET. This year, the show is hosted by John Stamos and Vanessa Williams, featuring performances by by Patti LaBelle, John Fogerty, Renée Fleming, The Temptations, Trace Adkins, Andy Grammer, Yolanda Adams, Brantley Gilbert, Lauren Alaina, Chrissy Metz, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kelli O’Hara, Mandy Gonzalez and the National Symphony Orchestra, With Live Fireworks from Washington, D.C.
