I haven't tried it yet, but I did find some instructions:

How to watch YouTube Live in Hangouts:
	• Start a Hangouts session in Google+ and invite your contacts to join you.
	• In a separate browser tab, head over to YouTube.com/Live and select a live stream of your choice.
	• Copy the YouTube video ID of the selected live stream. Not sure how to find it? Just click on the “share” link below the video. You’ll get to see a link like http://youtube.com/XXXXXXXX — the cryptic code after the slash is the video ID.
	• Switch back to Hangouts, open the video tab and search for the ID.
	• Click “Play,” and you’re all set.

I haven't tracked down all the details yet, but those URLs just need to be sent to the facebook page, the twitter feed, plus any people who happen to be live tweeting/blogging during the sessions. It should be interesting to try it out.
