Concert broadcast from
the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.

As Twittered yesterday, couch potatoes this weekend – make
that, desktop surfers – will be able to get a free, live dose of U2, courtesy YouTube.
The announcement that the Irish superstars’ Sunday night 360 Tour concert at
the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles would be webcast no doubt brought a thrill to
punters across the US – mainly on the West Coast, since the show starts at 8:30
pm PST, which means that everyone else will have to stay up real late and go in
to work Monday morning pretty bleary-eyed or simply miss it altogether.
But hey, that’s what God made software to catch and burn
live audio and video streams for!
Anyhow, you’ll be able to see Bono & Co. at U2’s
official YouTube channel, where they also have a zillion individual live clips
from the current tour along with sundry interview segments and more.

the band in Atlanta
