Manchester band Everything Everything are making a musical first this evening by streaming their London gig live to iPads. There’s a custom-made app for the occasion called ‘Man Alive – Everything Everything: Live at Union Chapel’.
Band frontman Jonathan Higgs said he wanted to make the gig available to people who couldn’t get tickets because the show sold out. He told NME.com:
“We wanted to try something unique. The concert sold out and we wanted to do something special for fans who couldn’t get tickets. We couldn’t hijack a TV channel but now we can play live to people on the bus, or wherever they want to hear it.”
Well – not every fan on the bus of course, only the ones with iPads.. Still, it’s a nice perk for fans and a good example of iPad app as TV channel. It will also be available to stream on Livemusic.tid.es.[via NME.com]
