Following up on its pledge to beef up broadband content, AOL Broadband and
AOL Music are hitting the stage with a new concert series aimed at high-speed
Dubbed 'Broadband Rocks,' the series begins Friday with new footage from an
old concert -- namely, a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers concert from the 1995
'Wildflowers' tour, including concert video and behind-the-scenes footage.
Broadband Rocks will be available this coming week exclusively to AOL
Each Friday, the concert series will be updated, providing new artist
releases with a minimum of eight songs from live performances. That includes
fare in coming weeks from Coldplay and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Users can also follow links to buy featured artists' CDs and DVDs and to chat
with other music fans.
'This new program provides music fans with the opportunity to watch a new
concert each week on-demand, at their convenience,' said Bill Wilson, vice
president and general manager of AOL Music.
