LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Nov. 20, 2001) -- To coincide with the one-hour Mick Jagger
television special "Being Mick," which airs on ABC on November 22nd (10:00 - 11:00
P.M. E.T.), fans will be able to download exclusive video of Mick Jagger performing his
new hit single "God Gave Me Everything" shot live from the El Rey Theater in Los
Angeles. The show took place during a private party held on November 16th to mark the
official launch of Jagger's eagerly anticipated fourth solo album, Goddess in the Doorway
on Virgin Records. A star-studded VIP audience watched Jagger strut his stuff in a
critically acclaimed performance that will be the climax of ABC's network special. Fans
can begin downloading immediately following the televised program, which provides an
intimate look at the behind-the-scenes world of rock legend Mick Jagger.
"The Internet has really made great technological strides over the years," said Jagger.
"It's exciting - it makes it possible to share a little something special with my fans."
"This is the first time that ABC has attempted a synergy like this," explains ABC
Executive Producer David Saltz. "The whole idea of 'Being Mick' features a candid view of
the artist, as he tries to break new ground, yet again, in an industry that he was in part,
responsible for breaking in the first place. It makes perfect sense for us to attempt to be
as forward-thinking and as unique as we can in promoting an artist that wrote the book."
The download will be promoted online via Microsoft Corp.'s WindowsMedia.com, Virgin
Records' site and on air during the TV show, "Being Mick." Beginning immediately after
the broadcast and continuing for 60 days following, fans will be able to access the
download via www.abc.com/mickjagger, www.windowsmedia.com and
www.mickjagger.com. They will be prompted to enter their email address and postal code
to receive a license to download the music video. The music video uses Microsoft
Windows Media Video and digital rights management technology. Digital Island,
www.digitalisland.com, will enable the delivery of the free download to consumers via its
2Way Web Services(TM) that offers the end user a faster, more reliable download. The
license and video will expire, and will not be playable, after 30 days of use.
"Mick Jagger is reaching out broadly to a new generation of fans by uniquely combining
the reach of both television and the broad reach of Windows Media on the PC," said Dave
Fester, general manager, Windows Digital Media Division, Microsoft Corp. " This is
another great example of how innovative artists can connect with their fans in new ways
with digital media."
Mick Jagger's new solo album, which has already garnered 5 stars from Rolling Stone
Magazine, is available in stores on November 20th on Virgin Records.
"Being Mick" is a Jagged Films production, produced by Victoria Pearman and directed
by Oscar-winner Kevin MacDonald. David Saltz is the Executive Producer for ABC.
||I hope they'll make more clips of Mick's concert available this way. I also hope they have a server that's prepared for a massive download attempt- something the Black Crowes DIDN'T have when they tried to give buyers of their last album a free show to download.
