MySpace, in cooperation with the Department of Defenseâ€™s Armed Forces Entertainment and America Supports You program, announced the launch of 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 todayâ€™s most popular musical acts, will participate in a 3-hour plus MySpaceLive! concert in Kuwait that will be streamed in high definition flash video using Kulabyteâ€™s XStream Live Solutions exclusively on the official Operation MySpace profile. The MySpace community can watch the entire concert webcast starting at 11a.m. PT/ 2 p.m. ET.
Starting today, the Operation MySpace profile (http://myspace.com/operationmyspace) will serve as a communication hub where troopsâ€™ 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 1-hour version of the show, featuring the best and most stirring moments, will be nationally broadcast on FX on April 12.
