Tonight the award-winning country act Sugarland performs in Times Square, marking one of the final stops in their 2010 tour. The show will be live streamed at 9 p.m. (ET) at www.youtube.com/sugarlandvevo and will be directed by Kenny Ortega, whose notable work includes High School Musical, This Is It, and Dirty Dancing.
Lead singer Jennifer Nettles and guitarist/vocalist Kristian Bush extend a personal invitation to you:
Expect to hear all their platinum hits, as well as a sneak peek from new release The Incredible Machine which comes out later this week. Also keep an eye out for special guest appearances from Ronnie Dunn (of Brooks and Dunn) and country vocal quartet Little Big Town.
Sugarland spent some time with director Kenny Ortega this week in preparation for the live stream. The man who directed Michael Jackson (This Is It) also offered up some suggestions for Jennifer and Kristian’s choreography:
This is the third installment of the “Unstaged” series brought to you by YouTube, American Express and Vevo. The online experience kicks off with a pre-show that includes a special interview during which the band answers questions that were tweeted earlier this week. At showtime, fans can also participate by picking from three camera angles (including a new “Front Row” cam) or by voting on what song the duo should play as an encore.
If you miss the stream this evening, tune in for highlights from the show on Sugarland’s channel shortly thereafter.
