The star played the venue in November 2019

Talking about the new stream, Yungblud said: “I was getting so frustrated that I can’t play a show and connect to my fan base.

“We were brainstorming ideas, and I remembered we had a bunch of people filming the Brixton show, so my team stayed up for a couple days editing it together. If we can’t go to a live show, I’m gonna bring one to them. This was one of the best nights of my life. A night that I wanted to relive with my fans once again.” Watch the gig in full below.

The gig saw Yungblud perform tracks from his ‘The Underrated Youth’ EP and album ‘21st Century Liability’, as well as covers of songs by Marshmello and Machine Gun Kelly.

The British musician recently teamed up with the latter to perform a cover of Oasis’ ‘Champagne Supernova’ from their respective houses. The video, edited together by Kelly, saw the pair performing mostly from their bathrooms, with Kelly on guitar and Yungblud contributing piano in another location.

The friends have also worked on a new track called ‘Body Bag’, which was inspired by the death of rapper Juice WRLD. “Me and Yungblud got together to drink some beer after Juice had passed because we were just like, ‘Times are short. Let’s link up’,” Kelly explained of the origins of the song.

The track is set to feature on Kelly’s upcoming album ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, which is due for release later this year.
