ABC/Tim OgierBuying a concert ticket, driving to a venue, paying for parking and then silently cursing your bad view of your favorite music artist while idiots spill beer all over you? That’s so last week. Starting this week, you’ll be able to watch some of music’s top artists performing live from the comfort of your bedroom — every day of the year.
Concert promoters Live Nation and Yahoo! have teamed up for Yahoo! Live, an online channel that will stream one live concert per day, 365 days a year, starting on Tuesday with a show by the Dave Matthews Band from Jacksonville, Florida.
Other concerts you can look forward to include Justin Timberlake performing in Iceland, and John Legend at the Hollywood Bowl performing the classic Marvin Gaye album What’s Going On in its entirety. Other acts on the schedule include OneRepublic, Daughtry, Usher, Gavin DeGraw, The Fray, and Rixton.
The day-to-day lineup for the channel’s first 30 days is currently posted at Screen.Yahoo.com/Live. The channel will also feature an on-demand selection of the artists’ videos, as well as interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
