The COVID-19 pandemic has forced numerous citizens of the world to stay at home. Many of the celebrities too have resorted to self-isolation or self-quarantine to protect themselves from the contagious disease. However, the coronavirus scare has not been able to put on hold the display of their talents.
The stars have continued to entertain their fans with various interesting posts from home, and one of the highlights has been online ‘concerts’ hosted by numerous singers and musicians.
However, James Blunt strictly wants to avoid that. The singer had a quirky take on the new trend, and quipped that he wanted to do a favour to all his fans by not performing a similar concert.
During lockdown, while many other artists are doing mini-concerts from their homes, I thought I’d do you all a favour and not.— James Blunt (@JamesBlunt) March 25, 2020
Numerous artists like John Legend, Keith Urban, Coldplay, One Republic, Pink, Shawn Mendes-Camila Cabello, Niall Horan, have performed online concerts, as the USA and other parts of the world face a lockdown amid the number of cases going up. Among Indian artists, Sonu Nigam also held an online concert on Janta Curfew day.
Social distancing is important, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring. I did a little at-home performance to help lift your spirits. @Miguel, @CharliePuth - you want next?

Talking about the real concerts, James Blunt had one affected due to the coronavirus outbreak a few days ago. The You're Beautiful artist’s concert at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg was empty due to the pandemic, with music lovers only able to enjoy it online. Blunt and his band had applauded themselves at the end of the concert.
