Before live music performances came to a halt due to COVID-19, Phoebe Bridgers played a short set at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The event kicked off Versus Creative’s 50on50 series, which brings intimate sets to stadiums that are usually packed with crowds. Bridgers performed “ICU” and “Halloween” at the outdoor sports multi-purpose stadium that can usually seat up to 77,000 people.

In March, 50 fans were able to witness her performance and heard songs from the album Punisher live for the first time. Director Tony Corella captured the stripped-back session, highlighting Bridgers’ raw vocals and the personal atmosphere of the set. “For 50on50, we aim to work with artists who we feel should be playing stadiums,” Nate Auerbach, partner at Versus Creative and co-producer of 50on50 with the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, said in a statement to The FADER. “As an L.A. native, Phoebe Bridgers is the kind of artist that we want to see perform a hometown show for a packed Coliseum someday.”

“I could not think of a better artist to launch this new series with us,” he continued. “We were so lucky to have filmed this right before everything locked down. For the people there, it was their first time hearing Phoebe’s new music, and probably their last time seeing a live show for a very long time.”

Elsewhere in music, Billie Eilish performed her brand new song titled “My Future” at the Democratic National Convention.
