See Jerrod’s Chicago Show Live—From Your Laptop
You've heard of pay-per-view television for big fights or some live concert events.
Now, Jerrod Niemann is part of a new venture that's bringing some of those live shows to your computer, iPad, tablet or even smartphone.
Jerrod is streaming his concert Thursday (Nov. 29) from Joe's Bar in Chicago—and you can "e"-be there, for a mere $4.99 ($6.99 the day of show). Or you can watch the show within 24 hours of it happening.
The hosting website is laplive.tv, which is promising HD-quality video of the event. Fans who opt in will be supporting a worthy cause, as 25 cents of every e-ticket goes to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.
Jerrod, in a statement, says the live streaming fits in with the past-present-future concept of his new album, Free the Music.
"So we partnered with laplive.tv to bring that same theme to our live show and use the Internet to bring fans worldwide all together to one room," he said.
