In April, Live Nation and Yahoo announced plans to launch a live streaming channel, providing fans a new free streaming concert 365 days a year.  Billboard reports Yahoo Live In Concert launches Tuesday, July 15th with its first free all-access concert.  Sadly, the Buggles* did not reunite for the momentous occasion, instead fans will have to settle for a Dave Matthews Band concert live from Jacksonville, Florida.

The tentative Yahoo Live In Concert schedule through mid-August is posted below, though please note the schedule is subject to change and the artists for some dates are yet to be announced. The channel will be featuring a variety of genres, so it's likely some more adventurous acts will be announced in the weeks to come.

*I have no idea whether the Buggles were asked to reunite for this project, but it would have been fitting. Interestingly enough, a Buggles reunion isn't out of the question. Geoff Downes (who went on to play in Asia & Yes) was asked about the possibility of a reunion during a fan Q & A last year and he said this about ex-bandmate Trevor Horn:

"Well you never know! Trevor’s a really busy guy most of the time with his wide variety of projects and productions, but I don’t think we’d ever discount the possibility. It’s always a challenge working on new stuff, and I’d love to collaborate with Trevor again. As you know, I’m pretty busy myself right now working on new material with both Yes and Asia, as well as several other projects. So yeah, it’s not impossibility, just a matter of making the planets align so that one day we can hopefully make it happen."
