Israeli Telco Launches Interactive Facebook Concert

As a band, it must be strange to play in an empty room in front of thousands of people on the Internet. But hey, Kill Screen does that every night via air guitar and Chatroulette.  But seriously, there’s finally a way to pester your favorite bands with “Free Bird” requests from a far.

Seriously, seriously, that crowd noise in the video sounds piped in.

Israel’s largest telco has launched a series of live, interactive Facebook concerts to be broadcast each night for two hours. Cellcom are inviting the very best bands and performers in the country to play live to thousands of awaiting Facebook fans, who will in turn, be beamed in via webcam and empowered to make comments and ask questions throughout the event, creating a unique interactive experience between the performers and Facebook fans in real time.
