As many of us enter day five of self-quarantining, we’re looking for any and every way to stay entertained. To help alleviate the stir-crazy stress some of us may be experiencing, Erykah Badu is providing a musical solution for those that are self-isolating in their homes.
The soul singer announced that she has plans to live stream a quarantine concert from her Dallas bedroom for those fans who need an escape from the coronavirus madness. Badu’s interactive Apocalypse One concert will cost fans a small fee of just $1 and she’s even taking song suggestions from viewers.
Badu made the announcement via her Instagram page.
“Peace and love. The show must go on,” Badu said in the video. “Introducing the quarantine concert series live from my bedroom. We will be performing here live this weekend.”
“YOU CHOOSE THE Songs by poll. One $ to get in. 1 dollar. We gone pull it off. We gone be calm. You gone help me make it happen. Can’t do it without you,” she wrote in another post.
Although she has yet to announce details on a date and time for the interactive concert, Badu joins artists like John Legend, Chris Martin, and more. Artists have resorted to online concerts as events worldwide have been canceled or postponed amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Badu has canceled and rescheduled many of her tour dates in major cities such as Atlanta, New Orleans, Cleveland, and Dallas. Her tour including many others may be postponed entirely as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.
In this time of crisis, music artists are looking for creative ways to still keep live music alive. These virtual sets have quickly become a trend and fans are in full support of it.
