In this day and age it’s difficult to imagine what can come next in terms of technological advances, but the news of the past few days is incredibly exciting for music fans, particularly as a country music fan in the UK.
As part of a new venture to livestream events, Twitter has teamed up with LiveNation in order to stream concerts on the site. Among the artists revealed, and first to be a part of this phenomenon are Zac Brown Band, who go live from Alpharetta, Georgia on the second night of their tour. This live concert airs on May 13th, one day after the release of the hotly anticipated Welcome Home.
After seeing their stellar performance at C2C this year, I for one cannot wait for the live concert. If successful, it’s great news for UK country fans as not many of the larger artists bring their tours over here, meaning the opportunity to watch them live on Twitter is certainly better than nothing. It’s currently unclear how exactly the live streaming concert will come about, and in the UK it will be in the middle of the night, but be sure to check Twitter on May 13th!
