Full Concert Streams.
« on: December 22, 2015, 07:55:41 AM »
Just wondering if anyone out there has kept track of the times that U2.com has offered full streams of concerts.  Miryclay dropped me a note requesting we add some of these into the site, and I'm happy to do so if we can come up with a good full list of what was streamed (and maybe when!)

Things like this:

2015-12-19 u2.com streams Paris concert audio (from HBO recording of December 9th, 2015 show)

2011-07-07 u2.com streams Montreal concert audio.
from u2.com http://www.u2.com/news/title/live-from-montreal/news/ - first three songs streamed for all registered users. Full concert streamed for subscribers.

2011-04-13 u2.com streams Brazil concert audio.
From u2.com: 'Usually we sing to you but here you sing to us.' Tonight's final show in Brazil went out live across South America and worldwide on U2.com.

2011-02-18 u2.com streams Cape Town concert audio.
Email from u2.com: "People across Africa can listen in to a live audio stream of the band's show in Cape Town - and on U2.com we'll be hosting the live audio for our subscribers across the world."

2009-10-25 YouTube Broadcast of RoseBowl Concert Live.

2009-08-18 u2.com streams concert from Sheffield UK:

2001-10 u2.com broadcasts and  rebroadcasts Notre Dame Concert (Video - Elevation Tour, October 10, 2001)

http://www.u2.com/news/article/246/
http://www.u2.com/news/article/945/

2000-06-08 u2.burst.com streams Popmart Mexico concert video. U2 are to broadcast a performance from thir PopMart tour over the internet next month (June). The show will be streamed from U2.burst.com on June 8th. Speaking about the webcast, The Edge said that U2 waited until "there was technology available that could match the tour's cutting-edge visual staging and audio dynamic". U2 are scheduled to release the follow-up to "Pop" some time in the autumn.

1997-07-02 popmart.msn.com streams concert from Boston / Foxboro MA
Video of the concert. Users able to control what camera they viewed. Streamed at least up until Pride. May have been full thing?

Anyone know of any full streams that we're missing in the above list?  Anything from Vertigo?  Any other 360?  I know they did a radio special from London for 360 but i don't think u2.com ever streamed it.

Great idea/great thread!  To your knowledge, are any of these still live?  When I go to the links, now, there are messages to the effect of, "the stream has now ended for free users, but subscribing members can still login and replay..."  Then, I try to replay, but am unsuccessful.

None of these are live.  These were limited time only.  The links are just included as a reference to where they were or where they were mentioned. :)

I have never listened to a concert stream online before.  At the time it is streamed online, is it something that can be downloaded to your computer, put into an MP3 format, imported into your iTunes library and then played at your own convenience?

The stream can be captured using software (usually .flv file) then converted and edited.

2011-10-15 yahoo.com streams Bono & The Edge at Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, CA for A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation
.flv file is 3GB

2011-07-07 u2.com streams Montreal concert audio.
.flv file is 273MB

2009-10-25 YouTube Broadcast of RoseBowl Concert Live.
.flv file is 816MB

Does anyone have the .flv file? My stream has several gaps. Bono and The Edge did an introduction that I'd like to hear again.

2011-04-13 u2.com streams Brazil concert audio.
2011-02-18 u2.com streams Cape Town concert audio.
2009-08-18 u2.com streams concert from Sheffield UK:
Please send me a PM if you have the .flv files, happy to trade.

Cheers,

Thanks for the adds and the corrections.  I'm going to piece something together for the site.  :)
