Jack White, The Killers, Kenny Chesney, John Legend. Point in common? Simple: Amex Unstaged. The revolutionary vevo-streaming concert series adds an enormous name to an already impressive list of artists by partnering with superstars Kings of Leon. Fred Armisen – SNL graduate and Portlandia co-star will be directing, what more could you ask?
Amex Unstaged has been a game-changer from the start. Innovation, promotional muscle, and a rotation of amazing performers and directors have drawn well over 100 million viewers. A Recent pairing of Vampire Weekend and Steve Buscemi produced some superb concert footage, and some painfully, wonderfully awkward behind the scenes skits.
The concert comes on the verge of a new Kings of Leon album, their first offering after a six-month hiatus following their tour in support of fifth album Come Around Sundown. Director Fred Armisen recently appeared promoting the new album by robot-rockers Queens of the Stone Age. Check the teaser for the concert out here:
