Bon Jovi to broadcast live concert on YouTube

Nov 08, 2010

Bon Jovi will celebrate the launch of its greatest hits album with a live streamed concert.

Streaming live concerts on YouTube is becoming an interesting promotional tool for big bands with new albums to sell.  The latest group to take this avenue is Bon Jovi who will broadcast their November 10th Times Square concert live on YouTube that will coincide with the release of their greatest hits album.

The band is getting their fans involved by offering the opportunity to submit songs for their concert playlist either by text or by uploading a video.  The interactive feature is something that should help bring fans closer to bands they enjoy.<!-- more -->

Good luck trying to use the Internet in New Jersey on the 10th.
