Former Monty Python star and film-maker Terry Gilliam is to direct a webcast of an Arcade Fire concert due to take place in New York's Madison Square Garden.

He'll take the helm of the live show on August 5, which will be broadcast live via YouTube.

If you thought that was the highlight of today's announcement then think again. Everyone watching the gig online will be able to switch camera angles and decide on the band's choice of encore song.

It's part of a new series called "Unstaged" put on by American Express, Vevo, and YouTube with The Roots and John Legend all signed on to participate later this year.

Arcade Fire's new album, The Suburbs, will be released next week.

Here's a trailer for the New York show:

The live performance will go down August 5 on the band's Vevo page at 10 p.m. EDT (1am BST on Aug 6th)
