Late rap legend Mac Miller will be honoured with a star-studded memorial concert this week, with the likes of Action Bronson, Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper, Vince Staples, Schoolboy Q, John Mayer, Travis Scott, Earl Sweatshirt and more set to perform.
The event, dubbed Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life, is going down in Los Angeles tomorrow (Wednesday, 31st October).
But now, there’s good news for Mac fans down under, who’ll be able to experience it live as well thanks to the internet!
Posting from Miller’s official Twitter account, organisers today announced plans to livestream the whole concert on Facebook, LiveXLive, TIDAL, Twitter, WAV, and YouTube.
“Join us for the livestream of Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life on 10/31 at 6:30pm PT,” they write. “The event will benefit The Mac Miller Circles Fund to support youth arts & community-building programs in Mac Miller’s memory.”
If our calculations are correct, that means the stream will kick off at 12.30pm AEDT this Thursday, 1st November.
UPDATE: The stream is now live.
Mac Miller passed away at his San Fernando Valley home last month at the age of 26.
No official cause of death has been confirmed, but it’s believed a drug overdose was to blame.
Mac’s tribute concert has the support of his mum Karen Meyers, his dad Mark McCormick and brother Miller McCormick.
Last month, Mac Miller’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande shared a heartbreaking tribute to the late rapper, saying, “I adored you from the day I met you when I was 19 and I always will.”
