TicketPro announced on Monday it has launched Covid-Zero, a platform for musicians, comedians and other artists to stream their acts online.

All ticket sales will be donated to support these artists during the lockdown and fund community care packages.

TicketPro is a subsidiary of JSE-listed Blue Label Telecoms, which owns 45% stake in cellphone group Cell C.

Covid-Zero and the Trust Blu Foundation aim to provide communities around the country with care packages including masks, hand sanitiser, food vouchers and information on staying safe. The first 5000 Care Packages have already been donated by the Trust Blu Foundation.

“Against the backdrop of a devastating pandemic, we are determined to provide entertainment for South Africans, while also giving a much-needed boost to our entertainers and to communities in need,” says Brandon Duffield, MD of TicketPro.

“From music to comedy acts, we’re inviting audiences to tell us what they want to see on their screens.”

Covid-Zero puts entertainment first by giving artists a virtual concert stage to keep performing, engaging with their South African fan bases, and spreading positive lockdown messaging and good vibes.

All the fans have to do is sit back and watch, from the safety and comfort of their own homes. Fans can also vote for the artists they want to see and post their stay-at-home concert outfits and messages on their website and social media platforms.

Covid-Zero launches with Ryan Murgatroyd and Friends performing live on the 8th of May 2020 at 18h00.

Log on to www.covid-zero.co.za to buy tickets and donate to entertainers and communities across the nation.

TicketPro invites all South Africans to join the movement as fans and sponsors of the programme.
