No bloody Sunday this upcoming Sunday:
U2 have 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.
The Rose Bowl show is the penultimate U2 show this year - with more to come in 2010 - and already is set to host the venue's biggest ever audience of over 96,000 fans. The 360° Tour, which has been critically acclaimed and 're-invents rock'n'roll' (Rolling Stone Magazine), will now boast unique access for fans worldwide - as fans in territories yet to be visited by the tour, or not at all, will be able to enjoy the whole show online.
Managed in partnership with Live Nation, this sell-out tour has broken attendance records in most venues it has visited - its success due in part to increased capacity coupled with a lower ticket price and great sight lines afforded by the stunning in-the-round stage set.
U2 manager Paul McGuinness said, 'The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time. 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.'
YouTube will be streaming live across five continents. The show will be available in the usual You Tube way, as video-on-demand, following two full replays - after the live stream - on both U2.com and You Tube.
The concert livestream is available 8:30pm PT in the following countries: US, UK, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, NZ, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea, and Netherlands.
Is the livestream "Even Better Than The Real Thing"? Certainly not, but it's one of the "Sweatest Thing"s YouTube's done in a while.Check it out!

VH1 joins Princes William and Harry in commemorating the life of their mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, with the "Concert for Diana," broadcast live from Wembley Stadium on her birthday Sunday, July 1, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. EDT and 8:00 a.m. PDT.
Music fans will be able to enjoy the concert across a variety of VH1 platforms. The 6-hour concert will be broadcast live in its entirety on VH1, be streamed live on VH1.com and be simulcast on MHD: Music High-Definition, MTV Network's high-definition music channel. The concert will also air on VH1 Classic starting one hour after the live concert ends. In addition to the live online stream, the concert will be available for on-demand viewing at VH1.com following the event.
Elton John, Duran Duran, Bryan Ferry, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Natasha Bedingfield, The Feeling, James Morrison, Orson and Status Quo, The English National Ballet, Joss Stone and Andrew Lloyd Webber are among the artists who have been personally invited by Prince William and Prince Harry to perform at the concert. Nelly Furtado, P. Diddy, Tom Jones, Take That, Will Young and the legendary voice of Supertramp Roger Hodgson have just been added to the growing line-up. VH1's Aamer Haleem will bring the day's performers to you from behind the scenes along with a special guest host.
Both Princes are organizing the concert and chairing an Advisory Board made up of leading figures from the worlds of media, entertainment and leisure.
"Though we both (Harry and I) wanted to put our stamp on this concert, we also wanted it to represent exactly what our mother would have wanted," said Prince William. "We want to have a big concert full of energy, full of the sort of fun and happiness she enjoyed. And on her birthday as well, it's got to be the best birthday present she ever had."
Proceeds from this international music and entertainment event will go to a number of charities that were supported by The Princess during her life, and two of the Prince's own charities -- Centerpoint and Sentebale. Diana's charities, which will benefit from the concert, are part of The Diana Memorial Fund, which was set up in her memory and five charities of which she was patron at the time of her death -- The Royal Marsden Hospital, The National Aids Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Leprosy Mission, and The English National Ballet.
