Webcasts of recent club shows by rock bands Weezer, Wolfmother and the Killers are rolling out on Yahoo through a partnership with the latest edition of the Guitar Hero videogame.
The three-part Guitar Hero 5 Fridays on Yahoo! Music launched last Friday with a set taped four days earlier by Weezer at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood.
Australian band Wolfmother's gig, which also originated at the Roxy, will premiere next Friday, followed by the Killers' San Diego gig on October 9. The content will be housed in the Guitar Hero Maximum Performance blog in Yahoo Music at (http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/live/).
The promotion ties in with Activision Inc's release of Guitar Hero 5 earlier this month. All three acts are featured in the game, alongside the likes of Kings of Leon, Beck, TV on the Radio, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Muse.
