Mariah Carey To Make History With First Digital and Mobile Concert
Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Mariah Carey will be making history Saturday, October 10, 2009 despite that her album “Memoirs Of An imperfect Angel” didn’t make #1 on the Billboard Charts. Mariah Carey will be the first concert to simulcast to internet enabled mobile phones and other electronic digital devices for her performance “Mariah Carey Live In Las Vegas.”
The concert will be presented by GDE Partners at www.iviago.com in association with Mariah Carey’s label home, Island Def Jam Group.
To catch the concert, virtual tickets will have to be purchased at $9.99 and can be obtained by texting the message Mariah to 313131 or by visiting Mariah Carey’s official site, Facebook or Myspace by clicking the link “Mariah Carey Live In Las Vegas” or by visiting iviago.com.
Once you purchase your ticket for the “Mariah Carey Live In Las Vegas” you’ll be able to stream the concert on October 10th and view it at that time or save it later for a one-time viewing. The concert will have the ability to be paused and also continued at a later time, but the down-side is that it cannot be rewound or replayed once the ticket buyer has viewed it.
In addition, on October 20, downloadable video clips of Mariah Carey’s Las Vegas concert which was recorded September 11 and September 12 from her exclusive concerts at Palms Resort in Las Vegas will be made available through select mobile phone carriers around the globe. The video clips will also include Mariah’s two concerts from October 9 and 10 and will be sixty minutes long.
On October 24th, the digital broadcast will be available in HD (high definition) and will be made available via Iviago’s virtual global stage which will broadcast to over 200 countries in partnership with over 200 partners (mobile and digital) which includes iClips and iTunes.
