The concert series is named "Apple Music Live" and is reminiscent of the "iTunes Festival" (later rebranded as the "Apple Music Festival"), a free annual concert series that Apple hosted and streamed live from London between 2007 and 2016. In a tweet, Apple promised that it will stream concerts from some of the world's "favorite artists."

Styles' concert will be available to stream via the Apple Music app starting Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, with encore streams of the performance on May 22 at 12 p.m. Eastern Time and on May 26 at 5 a.m. Eastern Time, according to Engadget. It is unclear if any "Apple Music Live" concerts will be available for on-demand replay.

Styles will be releasing his new album titled "Harry's House" on the same day as the performance.

Bring back the month-long iTunes festival! That was great. Just don't name it The Music Festival.

Hoping it won't be limited to pop and rap music. It'd be great to have some jazz, blues and classical concerts.

I am not the target market here, but can I ask you music fans a question?

If you aren't seeing an artist in person, wouldn't a studio recording be more enjoyable to listen to?
I love live and studio recordings equally. Live recordings usually show me the true talent of a musician.

A lot of times live music just has a certain energy to it and unique variations to the songs we love. I have tons of live versions of songs on my Apple Music that I prefer to the studio versions!
