Today, Live Nation Canada and Budweiser announced Budweiser Stage at Home, a weekly one-hour concert experience this summer for fans to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.

Beginning Saturday, May 30 at 8 p.m., music fans can watch the special weekly concert series each Saturday on Citytv and Citytv.com. The events will also be available to stream on Live Nation’s Live From Home platform, more details below.

“Budweiser Stage has a long, rich history as one of North America’s premiere concert destinations, and we know how important music is to people, especially at a difficult time. We wanted to keep the summer concert season going, even when we have to be apart,” said Riley O’Connor Chairman Live Nation Canada. “Live Nation Canada is proud to present Budweiser Stage at Home to keep our fans connected with live music. Live Nation continues to be the leader in the presentation of live music performances and looks forward to when we can all celebrate together at a live concert.”

Budweiser Stage at Home elevates the home streaming experience by delivering fully produced shows from this iconic venue. The series willcelebrate music and the connection it creates as we head into another great Canadian summer. The hour-long specials will be performed remotely and feature performances and interviews with artists who were set to play Budweiser Stage this season or have previously performed at the venue. The second episode will feature Canadian favourites Blue Rodeo and Alan Doyle on June 6. Further artist performance announcements are coming in the following weeks.

“The month of May has always been the kick-off to summer with the opening of Budweiser Stage, however, during these unprecedented times we’ve all had to change how we live our lives. But it hasn’t changed Budweiser’s commitment to its community,” said Todd Allen, Vice President, Marketing, Labatt Breweries of Canada.  “Budweiser Stage at Home allows us to elevate the at home music experience while creating great moments for friends to celebrate at a distance.”
