Calling all Maroon 5 fans! You’re stuck at home, watching YouTube video after YouTube video (and fan cam after fan cam) of Maroon 5 performing on stage but…
Now you’ll have the chance of watching the band perform “live”, though you’ll be separated by the screen of your phone.
According to 8days, the concert will be held on 5 June 2021 and is accessible on meWATCH for S$24.60 (including GST)!
The only downside?
We’re in Singapore so the concert starts at 9:00 am on a Saturday.
The concert will be a stream of their 60-minute performance—UNSTAGED with Maroon 5:The Encore!
Their website also states that the performance will give fans the opportunity to hear “unique and special arrangements of Maroon 5’s greatest hits”, as well as an “exclusive, first-ever performance” of their upcoming single from their new album, Jordi.
8days notes that the newest album, dropping on 11 June, was named after the band’s late manager Jordan Feldstein, who died at age 40 in 2017 of a pulmonary embolism.
But enough of all this, I’m sure what you want to know is how to access the performance.
Simply head to meWATCH’s website to purchase a subscription plan for the Maroon 5 performance, at a one-time fee of S$24.60.
Apart from the concert, subscribers will also be able to enjoy unlimited on-demand access to the concert and an exclusive behind the scenes documentary.
JJ Lin’s Virtual Concert Postponed
Speaking of virtual concerts, we should also be grateful that we can attend concerts while being on the other side of the world.
And in pyjamas rather than being decked out from head to toe in merchandise.
Especially so for 9:00 am concerts.
However, even with all the safeguards of a virtual concert, one singer has had to postpone his virtual concert in light of the worsening COVID-19 situation.
Mandopop singer JJ Lin’s virtual concert, titled Sanctuary Finale, was originally set for 6 June.
The Sanctuary Finale is a spin-off virtual concert from the Sanctuary world tour which took place in March 2018.
On 18 May, event organiser Isotope Productions took to Instagram to announce that the virtual concert has been postponed and due to the need to “prioritise the safety of the production team and to comply with safety distancing regulations in view of the escalating pandemic situation”.
A new concert date was promised to be released at a later time.
JJ Lin also posted the official announcement from Isotope Productions onto his own Instagram account, along with the caption: “Let’s brace through this tough period together! Thanks for your understanding!”

His loyal fanbase expressed comments of encouragement and promised to wait for his concert. Fans who had previously purchased e-tickets will be able to use them for the rescheduled concert.
However, fans who are unable to attend the rescheduled concert will be able to receive a full refund.
Hopefully, things will get better soon so that more artists would be able to perform once again for all their adoring fans.
