Last week, Taiwanese rock band Mayday delighted their fans when they announced that they would be live streaming their annual ‘May Date’ concert. The band has a long-standing tradition of holding a concert every May ('cos you know, they are Mayday) and decided to bring their gig online this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show, which was streamed online for free on May 31, was held in the Taipei Municipal Stadium. The stadium holds a special significance for Mayday and their fans, as this is where they held their first large-scale concert in 1999. They also performed there in 2003 to mark the end of a two-year hiatus. So the band rented out the entire stadium, decorated the seats with light sticks, and played for their fans in a 67-minute long broadcast.
