Entertainment Spotify now lists virtual events alongside real-world ones
Apple Music vs Spotify – which is better?
The two giants of music streaming each offer compelling experiences, but which service deserves your £10 a month?One of the biggest changes is the shift from ownership of physical – and latterly digital – music (remember Steve Jobs pulling 1,000 songs out of his pocket in 2001?) to streaming; playing songs in real-time from a library in the ether.
Spotify now lists virtual events alongside real-world ones on artists' On Tour pages. The change is an inevitable consequence of the many tour cancellations caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Virtual events are also being added to Spotify's Concerts hub.
