UK indie band Everything Everything are tonight to become the world’s first band to stream an entire concert to an iPad.
The Manchester band are playing a sold-out show at London’s Union Chapel, but iOS using fans who couldn’t nab a ticket will be able to watch the show on thier iPhones and iPads through a free app called ‘Man Alive – Everything Everything: Live at Union Chapel‘.
Everything Everything singer Jonathan Higgs spoke of the idea behind tonight’s broadcast: “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.”
