Amazon Music and Prime Video will live stream Kanye West’s first headlining show in five years, with special guest Drake. The “Free Larry Hoover” benefit, which takes place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, will stream globally on Prime Video on December 9 at 8 p.m. PT, as well as on the Amazon Music app, and the Amazon Music Twitch channel.

Additionally, Imax will live stream the concert in select theaters across the U.S. in an exclusive, one-night-only Imax Live event.

The benefit concert is dedicated to raising awareness of the need for prison and sentencing reform, and supporting legal reform and community advocates including Ex-Cons for Community and Social Change, Hustle 2.0, and Uptown People’s Law Center.

“We’re extremely proud to be working with Kanye and Drake on this historic concert in support of a cause they are both so passionate about, and to collaborate across Amazon for this epic entertainment event,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.

Added Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music, “We’ve built a home for the most important livestreaming events, and seeing these global superstars on stage together will be a can’t-miss event for fans around the world.”

The concert event will be produced by Donda Touring, ITC Entertainment and PHNTM.

Kanye has previously spoken about his support for Hoover in the past in a song called “Free My Father” off his recent album, Donda.

“Bringing these two great artists together for the culture and the cause of prison reform has been an honor,” said Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J Prince.

“Through my work with Larry Hoover and his family, I’ve really had my eyes opened to the plight of incarcerated people in this country, and I hope fans of Ye and Drake will take the time to do the same.”

Hoover’s song, Larry Hoover Jr added: “With Ye, Drake, and J Prince united to advocate for my father‘s release, we can take our plea for redemption worldwide and show that we are truly stronger together. On behalf of any and everyone with a love one wrongly or unjustly incarcerated…. free my father!”
