No need to pony up your hard earned cash to catch U2 live on the road this go around thanks to their partnership with YouTube. U2 has confirmed via video blog that their sold-out concert at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California, this Sunday, 25th October, will be streamed free, in full and live on YouTube. It’s the first time a show of this size will be streamed live — way to go Bono!
Seems fitting U2 extends the fan experience beyond The Rose Bowl show, which is already set to host the venue’s biggest audience ever with over 96,000 fans to include just about anyone virtually.
This isn’t YouTube’s first rodeo – the Google-owned website has streamed the Outside Lands concert and an Obama press conference in recent months, but streaming U2’s 360 Tour should prove to be the site’s biggest music focused event to date.
The live streaming event, which begins on Sunday, October 25th at 8:30 PM PT, will be available in 16 countries. The live feed will be available on the U2 Official Channel, and feature a live Twitter feed of chatter about the concert for fans to interact with one another. Check out the full promo below:
