U2 Concert Live on YouTube
U2’s Pasadena gig is almost sold out, but that doesn’t mean fans who couldn’t get tickets won’t be able to watch the Irish rockers perform live.
Thank God for the Internet! Bono and the boys have teamed up with YouTube to broadcast a live stream of the band’s Rose Bowl concert this Sunday (October 25th) via its official YouTube channel.
The Google-owned video sharing website has streamed concerts in recent months, but it’s the first time a show of this size will be streamed live.
YouTube expects millions of users will flood the site for the gig but foresees it will be able to handle the traffic.
Fans, please pray for strong Internet connections.
The show, which will also feature a live Twitter feed of fan chatter, kicks off at 8:30 p.m. Pacific.
Unfortunately, the gig is not available in some territories. Only YouTube users in the US, UK, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea, and the Netherlands could see the live performance.
Other regions will be ‘geoblocked,’ meaning users will receive an error message if they try to view the content.
