One of Canada’s most famous music interviewers, George Stroumboulopoulos, is coming to Apple Music where he’ll host concerts featuring some of the biggest names in the industry.

Unlike the large-scale Apple Music Festival concerts hosted every year, Stroumboulopoulos (aka Strombo), will be hosting the acts at his tiny house in Toronto, giving fans an intimate concert experience unlike any other.

“The bands set-up right in my living room, with a live audience packing the place,” Stroumboulopoulos explained in a statement to Billboard. “Lights, smoke machines and amplifiers stacked high — it’s every gig in a small space that you’ve ever loved, with the best bands in the world.”

Episodes of the concert series will be streamed live on YouTube and be available on Apple Music as well. The first of 10 episodes features Canadian DJ group A Tribe Called Red. Apple has not yet released the full list of artists but says it will include a mix of international legends with young and upcoming artists in different genres.
