SAN FRANCISCO -- U2's tech-rich tour keeps getting richer and richer.
The legendary rock band, which christened its U.S. tour in San Jose, Calif., last month with a high-tech spectacle of immersive video and sound, has partnered with Meerkat to live stream in each show.
The streams are distributed on Twitter and Facebook, as well as displayed at the venue.
The arrangement started during shows in Phoenix and Los Angeles, and has continued.
The live-streaming experience, filmed by a fan onstage with the band, is projected on a gigantic oblong screen at the show and is available to anyone who uses the Meerkat app.
