Watch classic gigs on YouTube, Amazon, Netflix and NOW TV.

There are hundreds of free and cheap gigs available to watch online.

I’ve tried to give a few options to cater for different tastes and included acts I’m not personally a fan of so there will hopefully something for most of you. 

I’ve focused on videos which hopefully will still be there whenever you read this article

Don’t forget there are also concerts on BBC iPlayer though since these tend to have limited run times online I’ve not included them.

I’ll share the best of any new shows announced on iPlayer or on YouTube in my weekly Cheap Night In round-up articles.

To help you find others, here’s my article with tips for finding more free online concerts.

10 classic artists on YouTube

A chance to watch artists no longer with us or see performances in their prime. All of these are free.

15 more gigs on YouTube

A handful more free shows I’ve found on YouTube from the last 20 years.

25 concerts on Amazon Prime, Netflix and Now TV/Sky

Ok, so these are only free if you’re already paying for one of these streaming services. Not only can you guarantee the quality of these films, but it’s also less of a grey area in terms of copyright as these are all legitimate recordings.

Amazon tends to have classic concerts, Netflix has a small number of gigs by pop superstars while Now TV has a huge selection of new shows by (largely older) acts via the Sky Arts channel.

Here’s more on how to get these channels for less.
