Rich Fury/Digital Trends

Amazon plans to celebrate its first 48-hour Prime Day sale with a blockbuster concert featuring Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Becky G., and Sza on Wednesday, July 10 — and you can watch the whole thing live.

The gathering of some of pop music’s biggest acts shows Amazon’s muscle when it comes to promoting its annual mega-sale, which runs from Monday, July 15, through Tuesday, July 16. Along with big-name music acts, Amazon will air sneak peeks of upcoming Amazon Original shows. Actor Jane Lynch will host the celebration.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the show live, or to stream it later.

How can I watch the concert?

Amazon Prime members can stream the free concert starting at 6 p.m. PT on Wednesday via the Prime Video app. That means you can watch on your phone, your smart TV, your streaming device, or your computer. Simply open up your app and you’ll see the option to start streaming the concert.

If you want to watch in your browser, the Prime Day Concert page is up and will be ready to go when the show starts.

Swift herself posted a video to Twitter hyping people up for the concert and encouraging them to tune in.

What if I miss the show?

Don’t worry. Amazon will let Prime Members watch the concert on demand after it streams live. That option will be available on all of Amazon’s streaming apps. You can also ask your Alexa smart speaker to replay the show if you just want to listen to it afterward.

How do I prepare for the show?

You can jam out to Swift’s new single, ME!, on the music platform of your choice. You can also ask Alexa to “play the Prime Day Concert playlist” for a collection of tunes by all the artists performing at the event.

What about my favorite Prime Video shows?

Amazon will use the concert to promote some of its upcoming shows. Expect to see trailers for The Boys, Undone, Modern Love, Carnival Row, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Do I need to be an Amazon Prime member to watch?

Yes. To be eligible for anything related to Prime Day, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member. Prime membership is $119 a year and gives you free two-day shipping along with access to Prime Video streaming shows and movies.

Reacher season 1 premiered three days ago on Amazon Prime Video, but that's all the time that was needed to earn it a renewal. Earlier today, Prime Video confirmed that Reacher season 2 is officially going forward with the further adventures of Jack Reacher. The series is based upon Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels, which were previously adapted on the big screen with Tom Cruise as Reacher. For Prime Video's series, former Titans star Alan Ritchson has stepped into the role of Jack Reacher.

"Partnering with Amazon Studios for season 1 of Reacher was a total delight – they had our backs every step of the way, and it really shows, in every line and every frame," said Child in a statement. "So I'm thrilled we'll be working together again, for season 2. This is very exciting news, and I can't wait to get started. Reacher couldn't be in better hands."

The Boys season 3 to debut on Amazon Prime Video in June

Despite relatively short seasons for The Boys, Amazon Prime Video's flagship superhero series sat out  2021. However, Prime Video's new, super-short teaser reveals that The Boys season 3 will finally arrive in June. And if the new footage is any indication, Anthony Starr's Homelander is about to snap.

Warning: Spoilers ahead! Homelander may look like an all-American hero, but he has the heart of a villain. Last season, Homelander was in a relationship with the almost equally sadistic Stormfront, a literal Nazi. Homelander also took great joy in tormenting Billy Butcher with the knowledge that his wife, Becca Butcher, gave birth to Homelander's son, Ryan. But in the season 2 finale, Stormfront fatally injured Becca, and Ryan used his emerging superpowers to severely maim Stormfront. Homelander was subsequently blackmailed into letting Billy and Ryan leave. And that defeat may be why Homelander's smile for the cameras is no longer convincing.
