Post Malone Is Doing a Nirvana Tribute Show Because Apparently That's What the World Needs Right Now
All apologies, everyone
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.
