Samsung, Bebo and Gibson have announced a new series of eight monthly events, named Samsung Bebo Nights Live at the Gibson Guitar Studio, a partnership between Samsung and Bebo, with Gibson providing the central London venue. White Lies and the Maccabees will play the first gig on 1 June. The initiative also includes a new online music TV show on Bebo itself, called Beat. Produced by TV firm Endemol, it will be a mixture of news, performances, interviews and interactivity, with prominent Samsung sponsorship. It ties in with Samsung’s new Beat music phone, and its sponsorship of the NME Radar tour.
