Code Orange, Dropkick Murphys and Frank Turner kicked it off: Virtual concerts against the boredom during coronavirus isolation and against the financial damage caused by postponed or canceled shows due to the coronavirus shutdown.
Code Orange played their record release party without an audience. Not on site but with 12.000 people watching it online. Instead of canceling their St. Patrick’s Day show in Boston which is a tradition since 24 years Dropkick Murphys streamed it. Frank Turner played a concert with his wife and some friends, streaming live from his house and made more than 12 Million people happy. He was able to raise 41.755 £ (50.000 $) which will proceed to his tour family. Watch the archived videos here:
