Watching the Foo Fighters concert on Boxee

Last week U2 and YouTube have partnered to provide a live broadcast of the U2 concert in the Rose Bowl (watch it here), which attracted ~ 10 million viewers. Tonight Facebook/Livestream are broadcasting the Foo Fighters concert from Studio 606. This is great for fans of U2 and Foo Fighters, great for YouTube and Facebook and great for the Music industry.

In both cases you could watch these concerts live on Boxee, or tune in later and watch it on demand later. There is an app for the Foo Fighters concert on the App Box (screenshot below), and the U2 concert is available through the YouTube app.

I hope this is a trend that will continue to grow. There’s nothing like going to a live concert, but when it’s not playing near you, tuning to the live stream is the best thing you can ask for as a fan. It will probably raise the likelihood of that fan buying concert tickets when the tour stops in his town.
