As the coronavirus disease (covid-19) continues to spread, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S. for the next eight weeks. For this reason, many Latin artists have canceled or postponed their upcoming concerts, including Karol G, Maluma, Jorge Drexler, and many more, in addition to music festivals such as Coachella and Ultra Music Festival.
Despite the challenging times, where it is highly encouraged for everyone to stay home to help prevent the outbreak, many artists are using their platforms to offer fans an intimate concert livestream as did Alejandro Sanz and Juanes on Sunday (March 16) with their “la gira se queda en casa” (the tour stays at home) one-hour show.
Joining the innovative cause are Rich Music’s artists Sech, Dalex and Justin Quiles, who will each croon fans with their Latin urban and R&B tunes upcoming live acoustic shows on their individual YouTube channels.
Sech, whose Sueños Tour in Los Angeles, New York, and Las Vegas with special guest Dalex has been postponed due to covid-19, made the announcement Instagram. “We’re preparing everything for our YouTube live concert. Stay tuned, we’re keeping active, quarantine and music,” he said. He also let fans know that he was going to spend his time at the studio finishing up his next album.
On Twitter, Dalex invited his fans to subscribe to his YouTune channel so they don’t miss his live-streamed show, while also encouraging his fans to be precautious and stay informed. Quiles shared the news on Instagram and Facebook. “Since we are all bored we are doing this to entertain ourselves,” he said.
Billboard can confirm that Sech’s show will take place at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 18, followed by Dalex’s show at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 19 and Quiles’ presentation at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 20. All three shows will be followed by a Q&A session with fans.
