With lockdown number three under way in the UK, the prospect of watching live music while crammed into a venue with thousands of other concertgoers seems like a long way away. 

Thankfully, the stars have got us covered with virtual live gigs to tide us over until we can all finally be in a venue together again sometime in the future. 

Until we can be shoulder to shoulder enjoying live music in a venue once the pandemic is over, these virtual live shows are the next best thing to tide us over for the meantime. 

From Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Kitchen Disco, to K-pop shows and even full-on festivals, there’s something for everyone to enjoy from the comfort of their own home.

Here are some of the most unmissable virtual live shows you will want to catch while staying at home to stop the spread of coronavirus.
