Apple on Monday announced that its Beats 1 radio station will be live-streaming a concert for the band The 1975 this week. The news comes via the official Twitter and Snapchat accounts for Apple Music, which had been teasing the event all day with posts of band lyrics and set photos.

The concert will take place on a rooftop in Los Angeles, on Thursday, February 25 at 9am (PST). The band is expected to play songs from their new album “I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, but it’s unclear if the stream will be audio-only, or video.

Apple of course has offered similar live-streams in the past, with iTunes Festivals, but this will be a first for its Beats 1 service. The company’s Music team has shown an increasing interest in exclusive content in recent months, debuting a Taylor Swift tour video and various music videos.

Again, the concert kicks off on Thursday at 9am Pacific on Beats 1.

  • You meant “The 1970 1st January”?

    So no info if audio only or video. Not the sort of info you’d expect from a serious music service at $10/month.

      It’s called hype

        Hype or shite? 🙂

    • First of all, it’s pretty likely that is going to be only audio. It’s Beats 1.
      And, as everybody knows, it’s not necessary an Apple Music subscription to listen to Beats 1.

        no, however they do their level best to push that subscription down your throat. try deselecting apple music in your settings, then try to play your own music collection. you can’t access your own damn music until you allow apple music; which is apples gateway to luring you into a subscription. so by design, it is part of their subscription process. maybe i’m just a cynical person with too much time on my hands.
