All the stars playing live gigs on social media from Chris Martin to John Legend

As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has led to the cancellations and postponements of a large number of events the world over, many will be left frustrated and saddened.

However, it's not all doom and gloom as a number of music stars are putting on free gigs from the comfort of their homes and private studios to keep us entertained as COVID-19 changes our way of living.

First up was Coldplay frontman Chris Martin who took to Instagram Live to stream a concert from his home.

Interacting with his fans, Chris also played an acoustic cover of David Bowie classic Life on Mars?

John played on the piano and sang Stevie Wonder's Love's in Need of Love Today.

He wasn't alone either as wife Chrissy Teigen sat atop the piano in a towel and turban.

"But this is my sacrifice to make sure everyone around me is safe."

Elsewhere, country star Keith Urban gave his fans a musical treat too, and he was joined by his spouse too.
