NKOTBSB offer live PPV Stream on Facebook

April 18, 2012

The April 29th live O2 show featuring two of the biggest pop bands of the last 20 years, New Kids on the Block and The Backstreet Boys, will set yet another milestone.

After the announcement of the cinema cast live to cinemas across Europe earlier this month, the bands were inundated with fan inquiries from all over the world, all wondering why the show could not be brought to a theatre in their city.

Overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of their fans, NKOTBSB are proud to announce that their April 29th live show can now be watched by everyone around the globe thanks to an exclusive live stream, which will be made available on the band’s€™ Facebook pages. The ticket to watch the live stream costs $4.99.

Livebeats, the company co-producing the event with ABC Entertainment, will provide the player, which will deliver an uninterrupted HD signal in a quality not seen before. The ticket to watch the show can conveniently be purchased in the player itself.

The Livebeats player is a unique tool for live music streaming. It has been developed with the intention to provide musicians –  80 per cent of which have never performed in front of an audience – their own virtual stage.

Livebeats enables musicians, to schedule their show, promote it, invite friends and share the live performance with the world. Although built primarily for the long tail of the music scene, the technology and service are fully scalable so as to match the traffic demand for high profile events like the NKOTBSB show.
