Free U2 Concert For Everyone!

With the new digital age of music and the over abundance of social media websites, U2 thought it would take advantage of this new media anomaly by showcasing their next live show on YouTube. A "living room series" is not unheard of, but a free live concert stream is a breakthrough.

This concert is being billed as the "first full-length global concert on YouTube." Everyone can tune in around 8:30 (PT) on Sunday night and catch a live stream of U2's half time concert at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

A Twitter-like crash (in the case of a Twilight breaking news story) is not expected as YouTube prepares itself for a massive viewing this Sunday. Hopefully, the streaming will be smooth and the millions of users tuned in won't ruin the "live" effect.

Not a night-owl? No worries. The stream will be available after Sunday for non-live viewing via YouTube.

Here's a little "U2ube" promo to get you in the mood.
