    U2 to stream entire concert live on YouTube

    U2 will stream an entire concert live on the YouTube video sharing site this weekend, the Irish band said on their website.

    Sunday's show at the Rose Bowl in California is already a sellout, with an audience of 96,000 expected, and U2 said it would be the first time for such a large show to be streamed live.

    "The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time," said manager Paul McGuinness in a statement.

    "As we're filming the LA show, it's the perfect opportunity to extend the party beyond the stadium. Fans often travel long distances to come to see U2 -- this time U2 can go to them, globally."

    Google Inc's YouTube will stream the concert across five continents, and two replays will be available after the live feed -- on www.U2.com and YouTube.

    i guess so...I like their older albums like the Joshua Tree, but the rest of the stuff, not enough to buy the CD. However it would be interesting watching the show on youtube.
    I wonder if the servers will have enought power for all the people that will connect ????
