Spike Lee will be in the director’s chair for a live webcast of John Legend & The Roots’ September 23rd concert in New York City.
The concert is the second in American Express’ Unstaged series. The first featured alternative rock band Arcade Fire with acclaimed director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) handling the visuals.
The show will be streamed on YouTube’s Vevo website. Viewers will be able to choose their preferred camera angle among other interactive elements.
“It’s not necessarily a Spike Lee joint,” Lee said. “It’s a John Legend and the Roots joint… I like doing stuff live. Especially with someone like Kobe. I can’t stop the game. You got to be ready for almost anything. We can’t stop this concert, either. Going to have to go with the flow.”
