WATCH LIVE: Pharrell Williams Performs at Apollo Theater

Filmmaker Spike Lee will direct a live concert by Pharrell Williams at the Apollo Theater in New York City Tuesday night, June 3 and you can live stream the whole thing right here. The collaboration is part of the American Express Unstaged series put together by YouTube and Vevo.

“Pharrell and I have been friends for years and we’ve talked about working together, and now it’s coming to fruition and I’m happy about that – we both are,” Lee told The New York Times ahead of the concert. “I’ve been going to the Apollo since I was 7 or 8 years old. I think it was a great choice by Pharrell to have his concert there. It’s one of the great places for music in the world, when you think of all the people who’ve come across the stage. And I hope people will watch, because Pharrell is a great, great talent. He’s been making great music for years, and some people know it and some didn’t, but now people can put the music with the face and the hat.”

Live coverage of the event will begin at approximately 9 p.m. ET.
