Rolling Stones to Broadcast Final 2012 Concert on Pay-Per-View
On Monday, October 15th, the Rolling Stones announced that they will perform four concerts — two in London and two in Newark, N.J. — in the coming months. Those who are unable to make those shows can now rest easy. The final show of the ’50 and Counting’ mini-tour will be shown live on pay-per-view in the United States.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the band has partnered with World Wrestling Entertainment to show the Dec. 15 concert from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. They are billing the event as ‘One More Shot.’
In addition, the Netherlands-based global production company, has acquired the international digital rights to all four shows from Dainty Group, the concert’s promoters.
“Endemol and Dainty Group are also collaborating on plans that will allow fans unprecedented interaction with the ’50 and Counting’ tour experience, more details of which will be revealed in due course,” both organizations said in a joint statement.
Stones fans around the world who were originally disappointed that the band will not be coming to their town can now celebrate their 50th anniversary form the comfort of their living rooms. Maybe it won’t provide the same experience as seeing them in person, but at least it will be cheaper, you won’t have to deal with traffic or long beer lines and you won’t even have to wear pants.
