Published Apr 22, 2020As they keep reminding us, we live in troubled times. And now there is more proof of that with the announcement that Post Malone is doing a full-on Nirvana tribute concert from his home.
Like or not, Post Malone will hosting his livestream tribute event on Friday (April 24) starting at 6 p.m. ET. Broadcasting live from his Dallas home, he promises to perform "a set of Nirvana hits and fan favourites."
Is this a good thing right now? Is it exactly the kind of distraction you need to avoid all those worries? Will it be better than some eight-hour Lady Gaga marathon? We'll let you decide.
For now, you can watch a teaser below, where you can also tune into the livestream when the time comes.
As a press release explains, though, this is all for charity:
The livestream event will raise funds for The United Nations Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO) in support of COVID-19 relief efforts. Fans will be able to make donations to the UN Foundation in real time during the livestream event by using the "DONATE" button on the top right-hand side of the screen. Google.org will be matching all donations at a 2:1 rate, up to $5M, with all proceeds going to the UN Foundation.
