A First For Amazon: Live Streaming Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Concert Tonight

Amazon is partnering with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to live stream an intimate hometown show the hip-hop duo is playing in Seattle this Friday night. Macklemore and Lewis are playing the show to celebrate the release of their new LP This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, and Amazon is taking its first step into the world of musical live streaming. (It’s following in the footsteps of its live stream of President Obama’s final State of the Union address last month.) The concert will be available in most major browsers — Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft’s Edge and Internet Explorer, and even Opera — on both PCs and Macs, and you don’t need an Amazon Prime subscription to watch. (It’s available around the world, too — no need to live in a country with Amazon Prime Music.) The stream isn’t accessible on mobile devices, though, and it won’t be archived. If you want to see it, you’ll have to be ready when the concert starts at midnight ET on Friday. (The live stream itself is kicking off at 10:30PM.)
