Frequently asked questions
Q: Do I need a YouTube account to watch the pre-concert talks and concerts?
A: Not at all. Just click on the links provided in our emails, on our web site, or on Facebook.
Q: If I want to "live chat" (ask a question or comment during the "Premiere" (live airing) of the concert), YouTube tells me I need to create a channel. I'm confused. I don't want my own channel on You Tube.
A: Live chat is purely optional. YouTube isn't creating a public channel that others can see, it is simply connecting you to the Live Chat function for the duration of the event. You Tube is committed to safety. If you want to participate in the live chat with Scott and fellow audience members during the Premiere, click here for a short overview from YouTube about how it works.
