Live From South America
The band bid farewell to South America this Wednesday with a live audio webcast of the third show from Sao Paulo.
The show will be free on the web and terrestrial radio in South America and worldwide to U2.com subscribers.
U2 fans across South America can follow the U2360° show from Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo via Terra u2.sonora.terra.com.br and also on radio in Brazil on OiFM.
'U2 have had a great time in South America - they've played fantastic sold out concerts in Santiago, Buenos Aires and here in Sao Paulo. This webcast and live radio broadcast in Brazil gives U2 fans who couldn’t get a ticket, the chance to hear a great show.' said U2 Manager, Paul McGuinness.
The live broadcast will begin on u2.sonora.terra.com.br and OiFM at 9:30pm. Terra’s live stream will be broadcast into Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. U2.com subscribers logging in on the night will also have access to the webcast.
Following last night's second show at Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo, U2360° broke the record held by the Rolling Stones’ Bigger Bang Tour for the most successful tour ever. With 26 shows remaining before the tour finishes in Canada on July 30, U2360° will also set a new record for ticket sales, with the final figure to be in excess of 7 million tickets sold.
Terra will broadcast the concert audio directly from the stadium, with digital quality, during a special edition of Sonora Live, sponsored by Intel.
'The U2 Sonora Live Special will be a milestone in the history of Sonora, broadcasting live and for free to all South America,' says Terra Media Vice President, Sandra Pecis.
