With a 20-minute video streaming from a concert at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, the Rolling Stones on November 18, 1994, were the first major recording artist to broadcast a show over the internet.
The video streaming included five songs > Not Fade Away, Shattered, Tumbling Dice, You Got Me Rocking and Rocks Off.
Mick Jagger greeted the internet audience and said he hoped the system didn’t collapse, the New York Times reported.
The concert was part of the hugely successful worldwide Voodoo Lounge tour, promoting their album of the same name.
‘There were lots of hacks (reporters) out there who said we couldn’t do it anymore. But maybe what they meant was they couldn’t do it anymore.’
> that’s what Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine.
Jagger continued > “Anyway, once we started playing, all that died down. You can talk about it and talk about it – but, once we’re on stage, the question is answered.”
The tour took in $320 million to become the highest grossing of any artists up to that time.
