Watch U2 Live Concert via YouTube on October 26 Monday 11:30 AM GMT+8

I am absolutely thrilled when I found out that U2 will be doing a live and free webcast of their sold-out Rose Bowl concert in California this Sunday. This is part of the U2 360 concert tour, promoting No Line on the Horizon, that just kicked off in the US last month.

Fans from Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain, U.K., U.S. will be able to watch the concert live via YouTube.

Those in the GMT+8 timezone will be able to enjoy the experience and watch it on October 26, Monday, 11:30 AM.

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.

The biggest challenge here will be bandwidth. So head-off to the fastest Internet connection you can find and enjoy the concert!
