To celebrate the release of his self-titled new album, British singer Yungblud has announced “Occupy the Strip,” which will see him performing at three legendary venues on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip on September 8, with the concerts being livestreamed globally via the Amazon Music channel on Twitch.
Yungblud says, “Some of the most iconic artists have played shows at these venues on the Strip. I played some of my first shows here, the first show back after Covid. It seemed the perfect way to celebrate my new album to cause some carnage and play three shows back-to-back with as many of my fans as possible. It’s going to be insane, and I can share it with my family all over the world via the livestream. Get all your mates together and celebrate the new record with me! It’s gonna be mad.”
