YouTube to livestream Psy new song performance

South Korean singer Psy (L) performs his hit single "Gangnam Style" during a concert in Istanbul on February 22, 2013. YouTube will livestream a debut concert performance of Psy's hugely anticipated follow-up to his global hit "Gangnam Style," the South Korean sensation announced in a teasing video message.

The 35-year-old rapper appeared to do a snippet of what might be the next big dance craze, to go with his new single "Gentleman," after his invisible "Gangnam" horse-riding dance that went viral with last year's breakout song.

A YouTube blog with a link to the video said a livestream of Saturday's concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium will run from 6:30 pm Korean time (0930 GMT), when Psy will "share his new single with the world."

In the one-minute video posted online Thursday US time, he announced -- first in Korean, then in English -- plans for the debut live performance of his new single on Saturday, April 13.

"April 13, 2013 is a new single worldwide, all at the same time. And I'm going to do a concert in Korea... and you can see it live on YouTube. Just for you," he tells the viewer.

The camera then pulls back and he launches into a brief bit of dance, in which he repeatedly swings one leg to the side, like kicking a soccer ball, while moving his arms from side to side, as if carrying a large bowl.

The message from Psy, wearing his trademark dark glasses, was posted at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQZTZHashKg&list=PLEC422D53B7588DC7&index=1. The YouTube blog is at http://youtube-global.blogspot.com/.

The new single "Gentleman" was to hit online music stores worldwide Friday and finally answer the question of whether the "Gangnam" singer will be more than just a one-hit wonder.

A satire on the luxury lifestyle of Seoul's upscale Gangnam district, "Gangnam Style" has become the most-watched YouTube video of all time, registering more than 1.5 billion views since it debuted last July.

The song topped charts around the world, and inspired a horde of online tributes and parodies, as well as flash mobs of thousands of dancing fans in cities like Paris and Milan.
