Amazon Music has unveiled its new weekly, livestream concert series Amazon Music Live. Featuring artists from a wide variety of genres performing their latest hits live, the series will be hosted by Grammy-winning hip-hop artist 2 Chainz and will air on Prime Video following Thursday Night Football.
Streamed live from Los Angeles, Amazon Music Live will premiere Oct. 27 with musical guest Lil Baby. On Nov. 3, three-time Grammy winner Megan Thee Stallion will grace the Amazon Music Live stage, and on Nov. 10, country music superstar Kane Brown will treat fans to songs from his new album, Different Man. More performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Whether you’re a sports fan waiting for the first football game of the week, or a music fan staying up late to hear the latest drop from your favorite artist, Thursday is the biggest night for entertainment,” explains Kirdis Postelle, Global Head of Artist Marketing of Amazon Music. “With Amazon Music Live, we’ve created a new, can’t-miss series for fans to experience the most exciting new music together. For artists, this show represents a massive new stage to share their music with fans after Thursday Night Football—the biggest game of the week, airing live on Prime Video.”
Each week’s performance will be filmed in front of a live audience. In addition to hosting the series, 2 Chainz will interview each artist during Thursday Night Football shoulder programming. Each concert will also be available to stream on-demand for a limited time.
“Every Thursday night, I’m bringing the biggest and the brightest stars in music to the Amazon Music Live stage in Los Angeles,” adds 2 Chainz. “We have the people that are influencing the culture and have carved their own unique path in music, like Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, and Kane Brown. Amazon Music Live is the only place to be for the official Thursday turn up!”
