Amazon Music announces that Taylor Swift will headline the Prime Day Concert on July 10th, streaming live on Prime Video at 9 pm ET in a first-of-its-kind event that celebrates the best in Amazon entertainment, exclusively for Prime members. The Prime Day Concert presented by Amazon Music will provide an unforgettable experience for members worldwide with an evening of additional performances from chart-topping artists including two-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Dua Lipa, multi-award-winning artist SZA, and global superstar Becky G. Hosted by award-winning actress Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Glee), the Prime Day Concert presented by Amazon Music will be available to Prime members to stream on-demand after the live show for a limited time on Prime Video, which will include select songs from each performance.
“We can’t wait to celebrate Prime Day with an extraordinary night of unforgettable performances, for members around the globe,” states Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music. “Prime Day brings members the best of both entertainment and shopping. To celebrate, we’ve curated a lineup across multiple genres with performances from artists our customers love. We’re looking forward to celebrating Prime Day with this can’t-miss, one-of-a-kind event.”
Also beginning today (Thurs, June 27th), Prime members who haven’t yet tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get four months of the premium streaming tier for just $0.99 and enjoy unlimited access to more than 50 million songs, ad-free.
To gear up for the night’s performances, customers can now ask, “Alexa, play the Prime Day Concert playlist” on Amazon Music and immediately listen to new hits and favorites from the artists featured across the lineup. Starting July 10th, fans can also ask, “Alexa, play the Prime Day Concert” or “Alexa, show me the Prime Day Concert” to watch the show on their Fire TV or Echo Show devices.
During the Prime Day Concert presented by Amazon Music, fans will witness a lineup of chart-topping artists, and special moments including:
Taylor Swift will bring members the best seat in the house with a dynamic set, including her brand-new chart-topping singles “You Need To Calm Down” and “ME!,” which broke records earlier this year as the top single debut of any song in the history of Amazon Music. “ME!” also broke voice records with Alexa on Amazon Music, becoming the most requested single ever on the streaming service. A singer, songwriter, musician and producer, Swift is the only artist in history to have four consecutive albums sell over one million copies in their week of release (2010’s Speak Now, 2012’s Red, 2014’s 1989 and 2017’s Reputation). She is the youngest person in history to win the music industry’s highest honor, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and is the first female solo artist to win this prestigious award twice. Rolling Stone listed Taylor as one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. Time magazine featured Taylor on their prestigious 2017 Person of the Year cover, and has named her TIME 100 Most Influential People in the world three times and is only 29 years old. Taylor is also a Brit and Emmy award winner and Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice.
Announced this week, this year’s Prime Day starts at midnight PT on Monday, July 15th and – for the first time ever – runs for 48 hours, offering members two full days to uncover the best in shopping and entertainment from Amazon Prime. Every day leading up to Prime Day, members will discover all kinds of exclusive offers and deals – now through June 30th.
