Musicians are making their way back to livestream shows after the holidays, but the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc -- even on virtual events you were expecting to enjoy from home.

Not only was the Ashanti and Keyshia Cole Verzuz battle postponed again on Jan. 9, but 311 also hit pause on the live set that was supposed to feature their eponymous release (aka the Blue Album), originally scheduled for Monday.

But not all is lost for the week of Jan. 11-17. Country star Morgan Wallen is celebrating the release of Dangerous: The Double Album with a set on Jan. 12, while Jimmy Eat World are playing their first live show in a year when they hit the stage to play Surviving (how apt!) in its entirety on Jan. 15.

See below what other livestreams and virtual events you can check out this week, and come back for more as we update this list as more events are announced.
