Yahoo will stream a live concert every day for a year

New, 49 comments

Yahoo wants to be the next big music venue. Through a partnership with Live Nation, the concert ticketing company, Yahoo plans to stream a live concert every day for an entire year, featuring what Yahoo marketing chief Kathy Savitt describes as the "world's hottest bands and musicians." Yahoo says that it'll also keep 1,200 of its live song recordings around after the shows airs for "months and months" so that listeners can continue to stream them.

"Together, we're going to feed the daily habit of music fans everywhere," Savitt said. Yahoo and Live Nation didn't announce when the concerts would start, where they would be held, or who specifically we can expect to see — but Live Nation's CEO says that the deal between his company and Yahoo was only finalized on Thursday, so it sounds like some of those details may still be getting nailed down.
