Amazon and LG will stream the musicians' recent concert collaboration in 4K.
LG and Amazon have announced plans to stream Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's "Cheek to Cheek LIVE!" in 4K. The concert event was recorded in Ultra HD this summer and will debut on Amazon Instant Video later this year.
"We couldn't think of a better way to enhance the LG 4K Ultra HD experience than by teaming up with Amazon and such iconic and such extraordinary performers as Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga," said David VanderWaal, head of marketing for LG Electronics USA. "Literally hundreds of thousands of Americans are purchasing LG 4K Ultra HD TVs this year, and they're clamoring for more Ultra HD content. We hope they enjoy this experience as much as we enjoy bringing it to them."
"Cheek to Cheek LIVE!" was filmed at the Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York and features Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga performing classics off of their new album of jazz standards. The concert will be available on Amazon Instant Video in 4K through the Instant Video app on supported Ultra HD displays. This includes LG's current lineup of 4K TVs.
An exact release date has not been announced, but "Cheek to Cheek LIVE!" is expected to debut in 4K through Amazon Instant Video in October. According to LG, this will make it "the world's first 4K streamed concert ever."
