Now it’s ok if you didn’t know. Youtube had organized a first-ever Youtube L!ve Concert at San Franciso and Tokyo back-to-back today. What was unique about this was it was being streamed live from Youtube.com itself. The San Franciso event was a success but the same cannot be said of the Tokyo event.
Many of BoA fans had either waited all afternoon in the Asia region or stayed up all night in the hope of catching BoA perform Eat You Up live and for the first-time ever. Well, they were to be left disappointed by Youtube who didn’t stream the live broadcast unlike San Francisco. They didn’t tell any of us that it wouldn’t be streamed live beforehand which was poor PR. In any case, BoA did perform as scheduled at 4.30pm in Tokyo to a live audience, singing Eat You Up, Lose Your Mind and two of her old hits, Listen to My Heart, Meri Kuri.
Thumbs down for Youtube because many of BoA fans had been waiting for a long time to see her perform and frankly only cared/wanted to see BoA among all the other performers. But BoA has at least got her promotion started.
