You, too, can hear U2 on YouTube


U2 WILL STREAM AN ENTIRE CONCERT live on the YouTube video-sharing site this weekend, the Irish band said on its website.

Sunday’s show at the Rose Bowl in California is already a sellout and U2 said it would be the first time for such a large show to be streamed live.

“The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time,’’ said manager Paul McGuinness.

“As we’re filming the LA show, it’s the perfect opportunit­y to extend the party beyond the stadium. Fans often travel long distances to come to see U2 – this time U2 can go to them, globally.’’

Google Inc’s YouTube will stream the concert across five continents and two replays will be available after the live feed – on and YouTube. – Reuters
