Pharrell Williams and Spike Lee to pair up for Apollo Theatre live-streamed performance
It has been revealed that director Spike Lee will team up with Pharrell Williams to film a forthcoming performance that will be live-streamed around the world on June 3.

The latest in the American Express Unstaged series, which sees noted directors put their cinematic spin on a series of live-streamed concerts, will stream the ‘Happy’ star’s forthcoming show at the Apollo Theatre in New York live on the internet.

The show will be available to watch via amexunstaged.com.

Other participants in the series so far have included Arcade Fire (directed by Terry Gilliam), Vampire Weekend (directed by Steve Buscemi), Jack White (directed by Gary Oldman), and the Killers (directed by Werner Herzog). Spike Lee has been a prolific film director since the early 1980s, working on scripts that typically deal with social and political issues such as Oldboy and Malcolm X.

Meanwhile, a group of Iranian fans who were arrested after appearing in an online video for ‘Happy’ were recently released from prison after reportedly lodging a large bail sum.

The incident involved a version of the video posted on the internet, in which a number of young Iranians were featured dancing to the hit single. Following the making of the video, Iran's state-run national TV broadcast a programme showing men and women, apparently Pharrell fans from Tehran, confessing on camera to taking part.

Human rights activists have repeatedly condemned what they see as the state TV's history of airing confessions made under duress, usually misrepresented as interviews, and following reaction from Iran's president Hassan Rouhani, those held have now been released.
