(Newser) – U2 will offer a video stream of a live concert for free on YouTube this Sunday. The stream of the sold-out show at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California will be available in 16 countries, including the US, Brazil, Israel, and Australia. U2 has "wanted to do something like this for a long time," manager Paul McGuinness tells the Telegraph. "Fans often travel long distances to see U2; this time U2 can go to them, globally."
