Tapings of new "Austin City Limits" episodes may be on hold for now, but the longest-running music series in the history of television has plenty of great music in its archives. And on Monday, the program opened most shows from its past three seasons to the public for free streaming.
Select episodes from last year, including shows featuring Billie Eilish, Gary Clark Jr., the Raconteurs, H.E.R. and Vampire Weekend, are now streaming at no charge from the PBS website. In addition, "ACL" has made all episodes from the previous two seasons free for streaming, with highlights including Willie Nelson, Janelle Monae, Brandi Carlile, Ed Sheeran, Herbie Hancock and Miranda Lambert.
Three tapings were planned for this spring: Tyler Childers this week, plus Luke Combs and the Avett Brothers in late April. Childers and the Avetts have called off their tapings, with the Avetts also rescheduling a planned April 30 concert at Austin’s Germania Insurance Amphitheater for June 18. The Combs taping also seems unlikely, though no official cancellation has been announced yet.
