Kings of Leon are performing live in London at Shepherd’s Bush, and YouTube has a 360-degree live stream of the concert that viewers can control.
For the first time on YouTube, viewers can watch a live stream through a 360-degree camera that allows them to see the event from all angles. Just go to the American Express Unstaged YouTube channel and select from one of the many camera views to begin watching.
The 360-degree camera is honestly a bit nauseating to navigate, but it is definitely fun to try and even allows viewers to capture an on-screen photo of the concert and share it with Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Other available camera views include a Director's Cam, "Fred Cam" and Backstage Cam. Actor, comedian and drummer Fred Armisen is directing the concert. The webcast is also available on Vevo.
The concert officially kicked off at 9pm GMT on Friday 9 August. Although it's not the first time YouTube has live-streamed a concert, the controllable 360-degree camera bit is certainly interesting.
The concert video below is from the Director's Cam view. Kings of Leon is a Grammy winning rock band from Oklahoma, famous for hits like Sex on Fire, Use Somebody and Notion.
