Yahoo! Acquires Live Concert Platform Evntlive

evntlive11Yahoo! has acquired Evntlive, an online platform for live concerts, according to Evntlive’s official website. Evntlive allows fans to stream concerts on their computer, tablet or phone. The platform allows users to switch camera angles, to view artist interviews, and to chat with other concert-goers in the app feature.

Evntlive was founded in late 2011 and launched in beta in April 2012. The company has streamed live performances of artists ranging from Bon Jovi to The Lumineers. Similar to other companies Yahoo! has acquired, Evntlive will shut down and the team will work on Yahoo! projects.

“Since launching our beta service in April 2013, we have live streamed hundreds of performances from amazing artists and festivals to fans all over the world,” the company wrote on its website. “Although our service will no longer be available, we are excited to be joining Yahoo’s video team.”
