Post Yahoo to Stream a Daily Concert From Live Nation

Quote:
Starting in July, a new online channel hosted by Yahoo will feature one live show a day for several years, plus behind-the-scenes footage and interviews in the hours preceding and following the performance, from the tour bus to the after party.

Live Nation, the country's biggest concert promoter, said it plans to sell sponsorship rights to advertisers including Kellogg Co. , which has already signed on, even before any artists have been approached. Live Nation and Yahoo expect the endeavor to be profitable, though neither would say how much they expect it to generate.

"We plan on making money on this channel, as does Yahoo; we know advertisers are going to be oversubscribed," said Live Nation Chief Executive Michael Rapino.

Until now, Mr. Rapino said, Live Nation has experimented with live streaming on a limited basis, sometimes at the behest of sponsors and other times at the request of artists looking for a wider audience.

Mr. Rapino said he expected it would be easy to find acts at all levels— from superstars playing stadiums to up-and-comers playing clubs—given the 800 million unique visitors that Yahoo draws each month and the high-quality broadcast promised by Live Nation's in-house production studio, which films hundreds of concerts a year.

After the initial live webcast, viewers will be able to see only selected highlights.


Sooooooooooo... get those webcast recorders on!!

Sounds great. Only problem I see is that LiveNation will probably announce at 7:58 what show will be airing at 8 o'clock. :?
