U2 360 tour.gifAs many as 10 million people are believed to have watched U2’s gig at the LA Rose Bowl Stadium, streamed live via YouTube on Sunday night.

Estimates had at first circulated around hundreds of thousands of viewers; very respectable figures themselves. But now Variety are reporting a staggering 10 million people around the globe saw the show.

The figure makes U2’s show the single largest live-streaming event in YouTube’s history, with the only comparable figure being the 700,000 who streamed the YouTube Live event in the summer.
