Apple Music preps Wizkid concert and adds Flo to Up Next promo


Apple Music is getting back to its live roots by returning to the Roundhouse venue in London for a concert. Nigerian star Wizkid is the artist performing, as part of the recently-launched ‘Apple Music Live’ series of hybrid physical/streamed concerts.

The concert will be recorded on 27 September, although registrations are already closed after opening yesterday on a first-come first-served basis. The concert video will be streamable on Apple Music later in the autumn.

In separate news, Apple Music has chosen British R&B group Flo as its latest ‘Up Next’ artist.

They’ve already been getting support on a number of Apple Music playlists, and will now receive the usual treatment from the DSP’s emerging-artists program: a short film, Apple Music Radio interview, and a slot on late-night US chat-show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
