YouTube to live stream Kings of Leon concert tonight w/ controllable 360 degree camera
This certainly isn’t the first time YouTube has live streamed a concert. Most recently the site live streamed the weekend long Lollapalooza festival from Chicago and it’s been hosting its own AMEX Unstaged series that brought live streamed concerts from Coldplay, Usher, Jack White and many, many more. However, tonight’s live stream of the Kings of Leon concert live from London will be the first time YouTube busts out a new 360 degree camera that will let viewers control every angle of the show while it happens.
For the first time on YouTube, watch the live stream through a 360 degree camera you control to see the event from all angles. This concert marks the latest in our AMEX Unstaged series that pairs musical artists and film directors to create innovative performances. Actor, comedian and drummer Fred Armisen will direct the concert at London’s Shepherd’s Bush, webcast globally on Vevo and YouTube.
The concert and live stream kick off at 9 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. EST) on Vevo and YouTube.
