Spotify has announced a virtual concert series which will commence on May 27th with The Black Keys. Other acts announced so far include Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Bleachers, Leon Bridges and girl in red.

The music streaming giant has billed these events as ‘pre recorded livestreams,’ meaning fans can select a time to watch their show in one of four time zones. The price of these tickets is £15 each and viewers must have a Spotify subscription to attend (the subscription can be Premium or Free).

Participating acts have also been invited by Spotify to choose unique locations for their live shows. In a release tied to the announcement, The Black Keys had this to say:

“The past year has been tough for musicians and fans alike, so we wanted to find a way to share this live performance of songs from our new project, Delta Kream, from a place we love, the Blue Front Café, the oldest active juke joint in America. We’re excited to be a part of this new initiative with Spotify that will give fans a great way to connect with their favorite artists.”
