Yahoo! Screen will begin broadcasting concerts by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Kiss, Wiz Khalifa and more on its Yahoo! Live channel, with the help of concert promoter Live Nation, which will be viewable for free. It promises to stream a different concert every day of the year for at least the next 365 days, and it's kicking things off with A Very Special Evening With Dave Matthews Band on July 15th, broadcasting the group's two sets that night at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Other upcoming concerts include one of Kiss' 40th anniversary tour dates, John Legend's rendition of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On? (with help from Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings) and Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids' first-ever gig in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Yahoo! Live also intends to feature concerts by Linkin Park, Usher, Common, the Gaslight Anthem, Panic! at the Disco and many more in the coming months. The first 30 days of scheduled concerts are listed on the channel's website, and the channel will offer alerts as to when it will broadcast concerts by specific artists.
In addition to its live concerts, Yahoo! Live will also offer songs, behind-the-scenes footage, artist interviews and more as on-demand features.
Beyond music, Yahoo! Screen has been making strides to expand its programming. Earlier in July, the channel announced that it had acquired the NBC sitcom Community, which had been canceled, and would be producing its sixth season. The series' creator Dan Harmon is currently working on a 13-episode arc for the show.
