Combating Covid 19: Dubai Based Musician Will be Performing a 26-Hour Virtual Concert

The popular singer and songwriter, Glenn Perry will be performing a unique song marathon from his home. The 26-hour virtual concert is an effort to spread awareness, and a message of unity, solidarity, and most importantly, hope. The concert scheduled on 22 April at 11 AM. So, in case you’re missing the buzz of some good concert fun, you can enjoy a marathon of it, in the safety of your homes.

What’s It?

During the concert, Perry will reel out over 300-400hits, in order to help lighten the spirits of many around the world. Furthermore, Perry will be performing the live concert with no food and sleep for 26-hours straight. The music enthusiast mentioned that he took part in something similar a couple of years ago. He performed live songs for 25 hours straight, with no food or rest. His fingers were bleeding from playing all the guitar, and his vocal cords were totaled. He promised himself he’d never do it again, however, this life-threatening pandemic changed his mind. He had seen such positive effects of his first live concert and hopes to achieve even better results this time.
