Seeing a trend here? Suddenly it seems like everybody wants a part of the concert streaming game. Still, I’m waiting to see when smaller touring acts start using it as more of a promotional tool for building and maintaining a fan base.
But in the meantime, there’s something for everyone online. Tonight, Spin Magazine continues their 5 night celebration of their 25th Anniversary with a show from The National, live from Terminal 5 (maybe I’ll head over there). The previous three nights featured live streams from Smashing Pumpkins, The Flaming Lips, and The Black Keys. They wrap up the party tomorrow with a show from Spiritualized.
American Express is the series sponsor, promoting their Zync card. So far, they’ve scored 102,000 “Likes” on Facebook, which is the gateway to the content. Eagerly awaiting data on total and concurrent streams.
Follow the fun on Twitter, too, at #ZyncSpin25. Rock on.
