For comparison, here are some numbers from a past live event:

<<Mogulus reports that YouTube had roughly 700,000 concurrent viewers during yesterday’s first YouTube live stream event, which featured people like Will.I.Am and Katy Perry (the San Francisco-based event featured music performances, comedy, and memes and popular people of YouTube). These stats aren’t precise, but based on public Akamai before/ after numbers during the time. Mogulus also reports that Google partnered with content delivery network Akamai to support all the users.>>

thanks Philipp!

I think that this time, the estimates on concurrent is about 3M viewers.. and that is only for the NorthAmericas.. I am not sure what the status for EU / /FAREAST/ MEA.

this will certainly be interesting..
