Once again American Express is back with another of their fantastic ‘Unstaged’ live stream events. This time around ‘Sex on Fire’ rockers Kings of Leon will partner with comedian Fred Armisen for the band’s August 9 show at O2 Shepherd’s Bush in London. As you may remember, we at Sidewalk Hustle are very familiar with the excellence that is the Amex Unstaged music series, we were front-row for Arcade Fire’s show directed by Terry Gilliam, cheering along to Duran Duran’s Coachella set directed by David Lynch. When Coldplay performed in Madrid directed by Anton Corbijn, and Vampire Weekend in New York directed by Steve Buscemi, we live streamed the entire show from the comfort of our home with the experience of being right there.
American Expresses offers up this exclusive digital content for free, you simply have to tune in at AmexUnstaged, pick your camera angle, and enjoy the experience. As always Amex gives their Cardmembers access to the experiences they want and love while at the same time demonstrating that premium service makes Amex more than just a credit card. Through Unstaged, Amex has revolutionized the interactive concert experience, scaling the emotion of “being there” for a global online audience through the unique collaboration of incredible music artists, legendary directors, and unprecedented digital connectivity between artist and fan.
This revolutionary access to Kings of Leon fans and music enthusiasts worldwide with several pre-show and in-concert digital features continue to blur the line between an at-home and in-concert experience. This pairing will represent the 13th installment in the series and we invite you all to join us on August 9th a little before 9pm at AmexUnstaged.com to watch this musical experience and to join the conversation at #AmexUnstaged on Twitter.
In the meantime listen to the band’s new track “Supersoaker” from their upcoming Mechanical Bull on September 24th.
