YouTube will stream live U2's concert at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California on Sunday.

Around 96,000 fans will attend the venue in California with millions more expected to log on to YouTube to watch the live broadcast.

"YouTube is thrilled to be able to provide our global audience with a live streaming performance from one of the world's greatest bands," said Chris Maxcy, YouTube's director of partner development.

The gig will be available in 16 countries, including Ireland, the US, France and Canada via this link: http://www.youtube.com/u2

Irish fans will have to wait until 3.30am on Monday morning to watch the gig live due to time differences. The event will be available in full on YouTube and U2's official website immediately after the performance.

U2's manager Paul McGuinness said: "Fans often travel long distances to see U2; this time U2 can go to them, globally."
