Clear Channel, Microsoft partner for iHeartRadio festival streaming

Couldn’t get a ticket to this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas? That doesn’t mean you can’t watch it. Iheartradio

The Clear Channel-sponsored mega-concert will be streamed in high definition exclusively on Microsoft’s Xbox 360, giving gamers (and their families) the chance to see the acts perform live.

The concerts, which will feature Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Kenny Chesney, The Black Eyed Peas, Steven Tyler, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Bruno Mars, Kelly, Usher, Sting and Jeff Beck (among others), will take place this Friday and Saturday. Tickets to the show sold out in 10 minutes.

The concert will also be audio streamed.

“This partnership with Xbox 360 means that those who cannot be in Las Vegas in person will have the opportunity to experience the event as well through an HD video stream exclusively on Xbox LIVE,” said John Hogan, president and CEO of Clear Channel.

The collection of big apps is meant to promote the company’s iHeartRadio app, which is designed to take back audience from services like Pandora and Spotify by offering easy access to over 800 terrestrial and digital-only stations via the iPod and iPhone.
