Among the music stars set to perform is Justin Bieber, who has not one but two performances scheduled. He'll do one set live from Paris on Tuesday, and another performance alongside the likes of Doja Cat, The Black Keys, Saweetie and more from Atlanta for Triller's Fight Club on Saturday. Weezer and 311 both have live concerts set for Friday, while Radiohead will be sharing an as yet unannounced archival show that day. For those looking for something a bit harder, Maynard James Keenan's Puscifer is marking the frontman's birthday with a performance of Money $hot.
