If you've been looking forward to concerts by your favourite artistes this year, this whole COVID-19 and Movement Control Orders (MCO) situation sure suck.
Of course, we have to be grateful for the privilege of staying at home and staying safe, but let's allow ourselves a few moments of self pity. Just a few.
OK done. Now on to the good news: you can now watch concerts by international artistes and bands such as Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, as well as Korean and local acts on Astro Channel 700.
That's right. Astro is introducing a new channel - Stay at Home Concert - which will be available for all it's customers from 14 to 18 April 2020, thanks to its partners including Universal Music Malaysia, Warner Music Malaysia, MTV, ONE TV Asia, K-Plus, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and more.
With front row seats in the comfort of their living rooms, customers can enjoy over 30
concerts by top music icons, global music series, popular Korean music shows, documentary specials and biopics, kid’s music specials, interviews with artistes, special unplugged performances and other interesting shows.
During this time, customers can also show their support to courageous frontliners by sending in dedicated messages to show appreciation to our frontliners on Twitter
using #TQFrontliners #AstroStayHomeConcert and Astro will curate selected
messages to appear on CH 700.
Those who wish to help frontliners can donate through ‘Tabung Bantuan Frontliners COVID-19 Sinar Harian’. More details available here.
Remember to check out the brand new channel for a great rocking time.
