Live stream Virtual Gig List: Coldplay; Hiss Golden Messenger; Mae Simpson; The Head and the Heart; Big Freedia and more

Hiss Golden Messenger perform in The Current studio




In this unprecedented public health emergency, concerts of all sizes have been cancelled or postponed around the world. Minnesota musicians are among those connecting with audiences online as artists and fans practice the social distance required to slow the spread of COVID-19. It’s a scary time, but as in other tough times, people are turning to musicians and other artists to lend comfort and inspiration.

If you’re an artist planning a virtual gig online, or if you’re a fan aware of an upcoming performance, please use this form to let us know! We’re especially on the lookout for Minnesota artists’ virtual shows, but are happy to include any artist of interest to The Current’s audience. All times below are CDT.
