Now this is an ego boost of epic proportions! U2 performed for a record breaking 96,000 people at their Saturday night concert at the Rose Bowl! What a feat! The band also wanted to give everyone around the world front row seats, and YouTube got in on the act.
For the first time ever, YouTube agreed to live stream a full length concert live. Viewers in France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, Israel, South Korea, the Netherlands, the U.K. and the U.S. were in on the show.
U2 manager Paul McGuinnes said, ‘The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time… Fans often travel long distances to come to see U2 – this time U2 can go to them, globally.’
