Momoiro Clover Z during their "Behind Closed Doors" concert.
The effects of covid-19 have devastated industries world wide. One of the fields effected is the music industry, who is suffering enormous losses due to not being able to hold physical concerts. Not only groups and companies are affected, but also fans who want to see their favourite artists. This raises the need for a good alternativ to conventional concerts, one that works well not only for artists but also their fans. This thread will show an innovative solution to this problem.
Momoiro Clover Z just had their first concert since the Covid-19 lockdowns. It was an online concert with no physical audience, but they wanted to involve their fans more directly. The answer they found was to rent a concert venue and select fans for a Zoom meeting. The fans were then shown on a massive on-stage screen, helping to give a sense of community for the event as they swung their penlights together.

800 fans also recorded their voices to be used for the overture call at the beginning of the concert.

The online concert proved a massive success, and in doing so it showed a way forward at times when normal concerts can't be held due to the coronavirus. Could this unorthodox solution be the future of concerts for as long as society is locked down?
