On June 21, American pop singer Miley Cyrus will premiere her new album
Can't Be Tamed in a concert set to be broadcast online worldwide, announced MTV Networks on June 15. The concert will be streamed live on multiple US-based sites as well as more than 30 international sites across Europe, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
Cyrus joins many musicians to recently make one-off concerts available for free online streaming. In 2009, U2 became the first band to live-stream a full-length stadium concert - pulling in more than 10 million YouTube views in one week for its concert at the Rose Bowl. Rihanna streamed a concert in November in a deal with Nokia, Bon Jovi did the same over the Ustream app in April, and American singer Jewel streamed a June 7 concert into select US movie theaters.
During the concert, which will take place at Los Angeles's House of Blues Sunset Strip, Cyrus will debut tracks from her forthcoming album and perform previous hits. The event will stream alongside a live chat widget that will allow users to chat during the event and post activity directly to their various social media pages.
The live stream will begin at about 7:30pm PDT (10:30pm EDT) and be hosted on MTV Networks pages through the world, including US-based sites MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com, and NewNextNow.com) and additional international MTV sites in nearly 160 countries. Beginning June 22, the concert will be archived for on-demand viewing.
In other Can't Be Tamed news, Cyrus will follow in the steps of several other artists in promoting her album through a special download pack for the Rock Band video game. Available beginning June 22, the Miley Cyrus Pack 01 will feature "Can't Be Tamed" as well as previously released tracks "7 Things," "Fly On the Wall," and "See You Again."
The star of the television series Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus has reportedly sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Her most recent full-length album, 2008's Breakout, topped charts in the US, Australia, and Canada, and held top ten spots in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Brazil.
