U2 Rose Bowl Show to Be Streamed Live on YouTube

U2, YouTube. It just makes too much sense.

We talked earlier this week about how massively packed the Rose Bowl in Pasadena will be for the U2 show this Sunday, with 100,000 cross-generational music fans coming from across Southern California--really, just think about that drive there, and the parking, and the leaving the parking lot, and the drive home. It took me a half hour to leave the parking garage of the Bren Events Center at UCI on Sunday, for goodness sake, and this is what's expected to be the largest attended in the Rose Bowl's history.

None of that will keep people home--the show has been sold out for a while. Which makes it all the sweeter that for those of us stuck at home, we'll be able to squeal with delight over Joshua Tree songs and make a snack during tracks from new album No Line on the Horizon, thanks to YouTube, who will be live streaming the show starting at 8:30 p.m. this Sunday. We're covered in America, of course, and also in the UK, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea, and Netherlands. Good work, other countries!

YouTube's promotional video--yeah, a video about a video presentation from the most famous video site, pretty trippy--on the broadcast after the jump.
