This Friday: Watch all 360 degrees of Kings of Leon live from London

After years under the radar, Nashville-based Grammy winners Kings of Leon, are back with a vengeance, performing live on Friday, Aug. 9, at 9 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. EST). For the first time on YouTube, watch the live stream through a 360 degree camera you control to see the event from all angles.

This concert marks the latest in our AMEX Unstaged series that pairs musical artists and film directors to create innovative performances. Actor, comedian and drummer Fred Armisen will direct the concert at London’s Shepherd’s Bush, webcast globally on Vevo and YouTube.

KoL’s energetic new single “Supersoaker” is on YouTube now, and their sixth album “Mechanical Bull” is set to follow on Sept. 24. Tune in on Friday to hear their new hits and hopefully some of your old favorites, too.

Vampire Weekend + Steve Buscemi = One awesome YouTube live streamed concert this Sunday

If you’ve ever spent a Sunday night enjoying "Boardwalk Empire" or rocking out to (and properly using the) "Oxford Comma," you’re in for a treat this weekend.

On Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, Vampire Weekend will perform a concert directed by none other than award-winning actor, director and producer Steve Buscemi to close out this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. And the best news of all is that you won’t need tickets to the Roseland Ballroom to take in the show. You can experience the entire event from the comfort of your couch via YouTube.

This concert, which is a lead-up to the release of Vampire Weekend’s next album, marks the 12th installment of “American Express Unstaged,” a concert series in partnership with YouTube and VEVO that brings together musical artists and film directors to create innovative performances.

The show’s sure to be full of great songs and surprises, including an opportunity for fans at home to unlock an exclusive BACKSTAGED performance, so mark your calendar and be sure to tune in. Here’s some trivia you may not even know: just last month, vocalist and bassist Chris Baio learned he’s actually related to Buscemi (thank you, genealogy websites).

Check out Vampire Weekend’s channel to see new, exclusive videos from this zany collaboration. We can’t wait to see what happens live.
