Amazon Music Live Returns With Ed Sheeran, Feid, Lil Durk

Amazon is going even harder this year with its presentation of NFL Thursday Night Football, announcing a second season of its postgame concert series, Amazon Music Live, with performances from Ed Sheeran, Feid and Lil Durk.

Sheeran will kick off the new season of the streaming giant’s music series on Sept. 21, a week prior to the release of his new album, Autumn Variations. The Grammy Award-winning global superstar’s performance following the football game will be broadcast live from Los Angeles and can be seen on Prime Video and Twitch, a popular streaming platform for creatives, especially those in the video game world, at 9 p.m. PDT.

Rapper and former athlete 2 Chainz returns to host the show, which will continue its tradition from the first season of highlighting genre artists by including Latin star Feid and rapper Lil Durk. Feid, who ascended to new heights this year following his North American tour, will perform on Sept. 28 prior to releasing his highly anticipated album, Mor No Le Temas a la Oscuridad. Lil Durk will set foot on Amazon’s stage in L.A. the following week, Oct. 5, and Amazon promises “even more blockbuster performances from artists across a broad spectrum of genres will be announced in the weeks to come.”

“We’re returning to your screens live after Thursday Night Football with even more new music, more album drops, and more wild performances than ever before,” 2 Chainz said in a statement. “Amazon Music Live is the only place to be after the big game. Tune in and turn up.”

Entertainment journalist and podcaster Gia Peppers and NBA personality Christian Cosby will host a preshow one hour before the performances that features interviews, special guests and other surprises. Aiming to be more inclusive, Amazon Music Live’s second season will feature live American Sign Language performance interpretation.

“We created Amazon Music Live to bring sports and music fans together on Thursday nights for a brand-new, can’t-miss event celebrating new music after the biggest game of the week,” said Ryan Redington, general manager of Amazon Music. “Available to fans around the world on Prime Video and Twitch, AML became a massive new stage for artists to share their culture-defining new music after Thursday Night Football, and this year we’re going even bigger.”

The performances are filmed in front of a live audience in L.A., and DICE will make tickets available to fans by invitation only. Select customers will have access to an exclusive presale for each show.

The first season of Amazon Music Live was a hit for the streaming service with millions of fans tuning in to watch artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, A$AP Rocky, 21 Savage, Anitta and Anuel AA on stage in front of a live audience.
