Kanye West’s first headlining event in five years, with special guest Drake, will be exclusively live streamed on Amazon Music and Prime Video. The ‘Free Larry Hoover’ event will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 9. The event will be streamed internationally on Prime Video at 8 p.m. PT, as well as on the Amazon Music app and the Amazon Music Twitch channel. In addition, in a unique, one-night-only IMAX Live event, IMAX will live broadcast the concert in select cinemas across the United States.
The fundraiser concert will raise awareness of the need for prison and sentence reform, as well as help legal reform and community activists such as Ex-Cons for Community and Social Change, Hustle 2.0, and Uptown People’s Law Center.
“We’re extremely proud to be working with Kanye and Drake on this historic concert in support of a cause they are both so passionate about, and to collaborate across Amazon for this epic entertainment event,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. Added Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music, “We’ve built a home for the most important live streaming events, and seeing these global superstars on stage together will be a can’t-miss event for fans around the world.”
Donda Touring, ITC Entertainment, and PHNTM will produce the concert.
