U2 will be the first band to do a full webcast of one of their concerts, as they will stream live onto YouTube to the world their show from the Rose Bowl on October 25th. The gig kicks off online at 8:30 PM pacific time. It’s a very cool way of connecting with fans and giving a different level of access, and it really is something that we should come to expect from a veteran group like U2. It’s a pretty clever move by Google owned YouTube as well, not that they need any real publicity or promotion, as they seem to be the premier video site.

Users in 16 different countries, including US, Canada, India, UK, and Australia will be able to watch the concert.The show will be U2’s second to last show of the year. Where’s their last show? Right here in our backyard. Vancouver.
