After the Dropkick Murphys were forced to cancel their St. Patrick's Day performances because of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the band figured out a way to ship out a bit of Boston to the world, livestreaming a concert Tuesday night. The Boston punk rockers are hardly the only musical acts turning to livestreaming or posting homemade videos to entertain fans during the pandemic. On Monday, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announced an impromptu concert on the band's Instagram page as part of Australian nonprofit Global Citizen's "Together at Home" initiative. Shortly after Martin announced his concert, singer John Legend introduced one of his own. And cellist Yo-Yo Ma has started a "Songs of Comfort" series, posting videos on Twitter of himself playing compositions like Bach's "Cello Suite No. 3."

Singer/actress Katharine McPhee has announced that she and her husband, Grammy-winning composer David Foster, will perform live on Instagram every night at 8:30 EST.

Here's a list of upcoming livestreamed concerts and performances for your viewing pleasure compliments of Boston.com.
