Music Live-Streams: What to Look For, from Ben Gibbard to Major Lazer to the Met

One benefit of being unwillingly thrust into the stay-at-home era: the burgeoning phenomenon of mostly free live-streamed concerts from artists determined to help is through being housebound. Who knows: we may end up experiencing more live music as shut-ins than we ever did going out, even if it’s through a screen.

John Legend, Yungblood and Coldplay have been among the performers who’ve already turned in web shows for the grounded. Neil Young did one Monday night and has promised more on the way. The growing lineup includes music for every taste, including no shortage of classical and operatic performances as well as pop and R&B. Here’s a list of some upcoming web concerts:
