Kanye West and U2 play a surprise charity concert live on YouTube [LIVE STREAM]


World AIDS Day has already done a lot to both raise awareness of AIDS and fund research for a cure, but it’s about to end with a bang. Bank of America and the (RED) charity are hosting a surprise concert at 7:30PM Eastern tonight in Times Square — and they’re streaming the whole thing live on YouTube. The gig will see most of U2 play alongside Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin (Bono is recovering from an accident), with Kanye West and Carrie Underwood adding to the star power. It’s short notice, we know, but it’s definitely worth tuning in if you want to see some of the biggest names in music play for a good cause… and no, this won’t show up in your iTunes library afterwards.
