music news 29/10/2020

Björn Ulvaeus of ABBA has hit out at pop stars who have live streamed concerts from their homes.

He's said that they are "boring" and are no substitute for the return of full-capacity shows.

“We’ve seen pop stars streaming their latest song live from their kitchen. Let’s agree on one thing – however talented they are, it’s boring. Boring!,” he said.

He added: “As a former pop star myself, I take the liberty to say that. It will never be a substitute for a packed stadium or a sold-out theatre performance in the West End or on Broadway.”

Livestream concerts were super popular over lockdown with the likes of Bon Jovi, Delta Goodrem, Keith Urban, Robbie Williams and more all getting amongst the free livestreamed concerts.
