California, US U2 have confirmed via video blog that their sold-out concert at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California, this Sunday, 25th October, will be streamed free, in full and live on YouTube. It's the first time a show of this size will be streamed live.

The Rose Bowl show is the penultimate U2 show this year - with more to come in 2010 - and already is set to host the venue's biggest ever audience of over 96,000 fans. The 360° Tour, which has been critically acclaimed and 're-invents rock'n'roll' (Rolling Stone Magazine), will now boast unique access for fans worldwide - as fans in territories yet to be visited by the tour, or not at all, will be able to enjoy the whole show online.

Managed in partnership with Live Nation, this sell-out tour has broken attendance records in most venues it has visited - its success due in part to increased capacity coupled with a lower ticket price and great sight lines afforded by the stunning in-the-round stage set.

U2 manager Paul McGuinness said, 'The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time. 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.'

YouTube will be streaming live across five continents. The show will be available in the usual You Tube way, as video-on-demand, following two full replays - after the live stream - on both U2.com and You Tube.

'YouTube is thrilled to be able to provide our global audience with a live streaming performance from one of the world's greatest bands,' said Chris Maxcy, Director of YouTube Partner Development. 'We are always looking for new ways to connect fans around the world with their favourite artists, and this is the perfect opportunity to do just that.'

For more information stay tuned or visit You Tube .

Update : We've just heard you'll be able to watch U2's live stream on YouTube where ever you are. Enjoy the show.

I would never have imagined to see U2 live it is extra really, especially for us the fans of Africa who cannot offer the lux to see a concert of U2! I know not what to say because I am moved and I really look forward to that on Sunday arrive! Thank you has you Bono, The Edge and the others to be you as angels of the music. God bless you!

NOT worldwide!!!
I was so happy to hear this news, then a day later saw that it wouldn't be available in almost all of South America (except Brazil)....WHAT'S UP WITH THAT??? If they call it worldwide, make it worldwide YouTube!!!! I'm sat here in Chile, hanging onto the rumour mill that they'll come down in October 2010 but after seeing them in Atlanta a couple weeks ago, I definitely need another fix!!! :o) Come on YouTube, MAKE IT WORLDWIDE!!!!

Wow...
The last time I saw U2 was December 16,1984 at the Long Beach Arena I was 18 and the venue was small.. Sunday is going to be amazing and the other awesome thing is I grew up in Pasadena and know every traffic avoiding entrance into the Rose Bowl It's going to be a beautiful day and night .

U2 GIft
Personally I consider U2 doing this as a huge gift to their fans! I have not seen this show yet and I have for every tour since JT.. I could not travel this year and actually had tickets TWICE and had to chuck it... Thanks to Bono, Larry, Adam, The Edge and to the most awesome road crew, producers in the business. Long live U2!! Peace..

Yep. Stade De France 2010 is a long way off. But Sunday (Monday 3.30am) is not. Oh dear I have to go to work , but I feel a bout of flu coming on. I bet it will have completely taken hold by Monday.

Magnificent news indeed!
Does this mean that the DVD will be out for christmas? If they don't play Your Blue Room I will be soooooooo disappointed. It's the best song they have played so far (during this tour). I'm so bored with Pride, Streets and Beautiful Day etc 'cause I've heard them million times. Don't get me wrong, they are great songs, but I want something fresh instead of worn out classics.

Problem
I thought i'll get to see it too, but a lot of European countries are not on the list. Why so? Can you guys do something about it? There are a lot of people out here who would happilly get up in the middle of the night to watch the gig.

I know what Im gonna be doing this Sunday lol, Managed Dublin (Sat 25th gig) and Sheffield earlier this year and have already recieved my tickets for Stade De France next Sep, couldnt believe how quick I recieved them, bought online at 10.05 last Tues am and they were delivered 10.45 am Wed now thats what I call service......Dublin this year was my dream come true, seen the guys all over UK but never been lucky enough to see them at home till this tour and boy was it worth the wait, MAGNIFICENT, BEAUTIFUL DAY, the guys were unbelievable, never seen them enjoy a gig so much and the crowd were amazing, Paris next year is a long way off so this Sunday is very much appreciated, been a devoted and passionate fan for over 30 years now, Thank you U2 for being the soundtrack to my life, much love xxx

What's with the rest of the world?
It's not fair that this concert will be available only in the following countries: US, UK, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, NZ, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea, and Netherlands.
