Lil Uzi Vert will celebrate Eternal Atake with a livestream show next week
As venue restrictions due to quarantine have effectively barred any sort of live performance, many artists have experimented with options to try to keep up a sense of normalcy in the industry. Philly-born rapper Lil Uzi Vert is the latest artist to announce a virtual live performance, set to be streamed next week, on August 27th at 6:00pm EST.
Attendance will cost $15 per ticket, which are on sale now. Unlike the majority of livestreamed concerts recently, which tend to be filmed from a studio or the artist’s home, Lil Uzi’s show will be streamed from a “historic concert venue that is yet to be announced,” according to the Rolling Stone.
Earlier this year, in March, Lil Uzi released his long-anticipated sophomore effort, Eternal Atake. A week after the release of Eternal Atake, Lil Uzi released the deluxe edition — functionally an entirely new album — titled Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World 2. This concert will be the rapper’s first performance since the release of these two projects. In addition, Lil Uzi recently collaborated with Future on “Patek.”
