Rolling Stones take One More Shot concert to connected audience

Fans of The Rolling Stones around the world will be able to watch the band’s Newark, New Jersey concert this Saturday on a pay-per-view basis on their TVs, laptops and iPads – although (again) it will not come cheap.

The gig will be available on the major pay-TV platforms in the US, as well as to a global audience who can view it on a range of connected devices, thanks to an agreement formed by pay-per-view specialist WWE with Dainty Group and Endemol.

Pay-per-view access on pay-TV in the US will be priced at US$ 39.99, with customers able to access the concert on-demand for 30 days after it finishes.

The gig will be priced at US$ 9.99 for the same access for those viewing on connected devices, with the stream delivered by New York City-based firm Neulion and hosted exclusively on Yahoo! Music after registration here.

The concert – called ‘One More Shot’ – marks the close of the Stones’ anniversary tour and will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark from 9pm EST on December 15th.
