U2 to stream concert on YouTube

Event kicks off at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 25

U2 has teamed up with YouTube to stream the band’s Los Angeles concert free of charge on Oct. 25.

The event, which takes place  Sunday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, kicks off at 8:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live and made available in the U.S., England, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea and the Netherlands.

The veteran Irish rockers made the announcement Tuesday morning via video blog.

“The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time,” said U2 manager Paul McGuinness. “As we’re filming the L.A. 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.”

After the live stream, the concert will be made available on U2’s YouTube channel, following two full replays on both U2.com and YouTube.
