If you love the Rolling Stones but the holidays have left you too broke to see one of their 50th anniversary shows or to order their December 15th live concert pay-per-view, “One More Shot”, you still have options!
For the frugal fans, The E! Network is airing a free, one-hour special called “Live From the Rolling Stones,” which will precede “One More Shot” and feature footage of the band as they prepare for their show at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
Several E! personalities will be curating the show, with E! News co-host Terrance Jenkins serving as the event’s anchor, E! correspondent Alicia Quarles interviewing arriving guests and Chelsea Lately panelist Ross Matthews handling the backstage action.
And “Live From the Rolling Stones” wouldn’t be complete without exclusive interviews with the bandmembers themselves, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts all scheduled to give a little insight before the concert kicks off.
“One More Shot”, which is being distributed by World Wrestling Entertainment, will air live at 9pm EST courtesy of Dainty Group and Endemol for $39.99. Yahoo! will also stream the entire event online, along with a preshow entitled “Countdown to the Rolling Stones.”
The concert will be the Stones’ last of their ‘50 & Counting’ anniversary shows for 2012, though rumors continue that the band will schedule more in the coming months.
