DISTURBED and FILTER are among the artist who will perform at Operation MySpace, a landmark concert event designed to bring troops serving in Kuwait a taste of home and enable the MySpace community to show their support for troops serving overseas.
On March 10, MySpace co-founders Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe, along with some of today's most popular musical acts, will participate in a three-hour plus MySpaceLive! concert in Kuwait that will be streamed in high-definition flash video using Kulabyte's XStream Live Solutions exclusively on the official Operation MySpace profile. The MySpace community can watch the entire concert webcast starting at 11 a.m. PT/ 2 p.m. ET.
"For years troops stationed all over the world have utilized MySpace as a lifeline to communicate with their loved ones back home. Many of them have been generous enough to share their unique experiences with me through messages on MySpace," Anderson said. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to thank them in person and bring along the entire MySpace community."
Operation MySpace will be the largest MySpaceLive! concert to date with additional performances by the PUSSYCAT DOLLS, JESSICA SIMPSON, DJ Z-TRIP and the comedic genius of Carlos Mencia.
"We're incredibly proud to host this one of a kind concert," added DeWolfe. "Unlike past variety shows or concerts of this nature, Operation MySpace will connect people, content, and culture a world apart through the live webcast of the show and interaction on the Operation MySpace profile."
Starting today, the Operation MySpace profile will serve as a communication hub where troops' families and friends, along with the entire MySpace community, can post videos and messages of support via a video blog section. The profile will also feature a scrolling ticker of goodwill messages uploaded to the community during the live stream. A condensed one-hour version of the show, featuring the best and most stirring moments, will be nationally broadcast on FX on April 12.
