Amazon Music will host its first live streamed concert this Friday (Feb 26) in the US with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
The album release event will see the duo perform an intimate concert for 500 fans in Seattle — the same day their new album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, is released.
The full concert will be available to live stream on PCs or Macs for fans to enjoy in real-time, at no cost, starting at 9pm PT.
Interestingly, no Amazon Prime membership is required.
The event follows the recent January live stream event from Amazon which made the State of the Union available to stream on-demand as it happened.
This Unruly Mess I’ve Made will be available for Prime members to stream on Prime Music from release day.
The duo are releasing the album via their own label, with Warner Music taking on sales, distribution and other services.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s last album, The Heist, was released in 2012 and has sold approximately 1.5m copies in the US market alone.Music Business Worldwide
