Wednesday September 16 at 7pm ET, rock band Boys Like Girls performed live and chatted with their fans using a custom Facebook App that can be found under the Livestream tab at http://www.facebook.com/boyslikegirls (see screenshots below).

The Space Shuttle Discovery is scheduled to return to Earth on Thursday September 10 Friday September 11, after nearly 2 weeks in space. The entire landing will be broadcast live by Livestream partners Spaceflight Now and at http://www.livestream.com/spaceflightnow.
When the Shuttle touches down at Kennedy Space Center tomorrow it will mark the end of the 30th manned mission to the International Space Station, which brought fresh supplies to the astronauts already in space.
If you haven’t seen a Shuttle landing before, it is a fascinating process. Mission managers decide if weather is suitable at the landing site. If it is, astronauts fire the engines and do a “Deorbit Burn” about an hour before landing time. If the weather is not suitable, astronauts will be told to circle the Earth another time instead of firing the engines, delaying the landing by approximately 90 minutes.
The planned schedule for tomorrow’s landing is:
- 5:59pm EST: Deorbit Burn begins
- 7:05pm EST Shuttle lands
- Second Attempt: 7:36 pm Eastern Deorbit burn
- Landing: 8:42pm Eastern
The updated Schedule for Friday’s opportunities will be:
Kennedy Space Center
- 1st landing opportunity
- 5:48p EDT/9:48p GMT
- 2nd landing opportunity
- 7:23p EDT/11:23p GMT
Edwards Air Force Base
- 1st landing opportunity 8:53p EDT/12:53a GMT
- 2nd landing opportunity 10:28p EDT/2:28a GMT
Tonight, Friday April 10th, at 8:00PM (PDT), TourTVonline will broadcast the 50th Anniversary concert of legendary rock bands the Ventures and The Fabulous Wailers. Live from Seattle, the bands are coming together for the first time, promoting the release of their historic CD Two Car Garage.
The show will be broadcast on the TourTV Live Rock Mogulus Pro Channel.
Both bands began in the late 1950′s as garage bands in Tacoma, Washington. Collectively the influence of their ground-breaking music has been felt in almost every genre of music for over five decades (“Surf Rider” was featured in Pulp Fiction and “Louie Louie” is one of the most covered songs in the world ).
Be you a long time fan of the Ventures or the Wailers or just a fan of good music, watch as they make music history with the live webcast of this very special event exclusively on TourTV, tonight at 8:00PM PDT .
