SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Live Nation has figured out a way to bring major concerts to YOU, through their online platform: Live From Home. It's updated daily with livestreams, new music, and artist announcements.
We were joined on Midday Live by Jodi Goodman, president of Live Nation Nor Cal.
"We are truly living in a world now of virtual connections," she said. "I will tell you, for artists it has just been a floodgate of creativity and a feast of content out there. All genres, all new music, old archives, collaborations. We're seeing just so much creativity."
Live From Home has a variety of premium content available, from live stream performances to family activities, like the KIDZ BOP daily dance breaks.
There's so much creativity going on right now as artists find ways to share their art online.
"Some of it is fundraising, re-broadcasts of concerts from decades ago, it could be artists on Instagram premiering some new music, which is happening a lot right now, too," adds Goodman.
She said Live Nation realized it was important to have a central location where fans can access all that content so they aren't missing out on their favorite performers.
"The platform... is giving you a place to go to see what's available out there on special events, new music," she said. "For us, I believe, we feel this is a great opportunity for people to discover music, and to discover new artists... We're very excited about that."
Live From Home includes major performers as well as up-and-coming musicians who are the future of the industry.
In addition, Crew Nation Global Relief Fund has been created to benefit live music crews. Live Nation has committed $10 million to Crew Nation - contributing an initial $5 million to the fund, then matching the next $5 million given by artists, fans and employees dollar for dollar. Fans can donate and show their support by buying Crew Nation apparel at www.LiveNation.com/CrewNation.
