On 8 December 2019, just a few days after his 21st birthday, Juice WRLD –the American rapper, singer and songwriter – died from an accidental drug overdose. Celebrities, friends, family and fans alike were shocked and took to social media to mourn the young rapper’s passing.
Juice WRLD’s now-historic final performance took place at Festival Hall in Melbourne (on 28 November 2019) and was luckily recorded by Australian radio station, Triple J. The show included many of his viral hits: “Lucid Dreams”, “Fine China” and “Robbery” to name a few, plus a memorable moment when the rapper invited his girlfriend on stage to deliver words of inspiration to the crowd.
For those who couldn’t be there, Triple J will be streaming Juice WRLD’s final performance beginning on Monday, 27 July on their long-running show, “Live at the Wireless.” Fret not, as fans located in different time zones will be able to tune in on any of the three dates and times below:

Legends Never Die

In fact, the eleventh track on the album, “Come & Go” featuring Marshmello, has already risen to the number one spot on Billboard’s Streaming Songs Chart.
In its first week, Legends Never Die counted a total 422.63 million streams, and the album has since been named the most successful posthumous release in 20 years.
