"Unstaged: An Original Series From American Express" has recruited Spike Lee to helm the second installment of its live concert streaming series, which will feature a complete performance from neo-soul songsmith John Legend and Philly hip-hop stalwarts the Roots at Gotham's Terminal 5.

Mounted as a partnership between VEVO, YouTube and American Express, the series pairs veteran filmmakers with contemporary performers, and kicked off in July by placing Terry Gilliam at the helm of the Arcade Fire's tour-opening Madison Square Garden concert.

Legend and the Roots will be playing tunes from their collaborative covers record, "Wake Up," which is slated to drop two days before the Sept. 23 show.
