As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band, the first ever official app for The Rolling Stones is launched worldwide today.
The Rolling Stones Official App will allow fans across the globe unprecedented interaction with the rock icons. Developed with the personal involvement of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, the app is free to download from today (some countries may take up to 24 hours to come online) and is initially exclusive to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Fans can unlock exclusive content including never seen before interviews and performances during the tour preparation – shot especially for the app and available in the exclusive paid-for section; win tickets to the upcoming tour ‘The Rolling Stones
Live – 50 & Counting’; keep up to date with all of the latest breaking news – available in the app before anywhere else; see a spectacular collection of photos and videos of the band across the decades; and that’s just for starters…
Announcements will be made soon regarding previously unreleased content, exclusive to the app; and a feature that will let fans worldwide vote for a favourite track to be played at a forthcoming gig.
The Rolling Stones Official App also allows fans anywhere in the world to connect with each other and with the band themselves; preview tracks for free; listen to and buy any song from The Rolling Stones catalogue on iTunes; buy exclusive merchandise; follow tweets from the Stones; check out tour dates and check-in to tell the world ‘I was there!’ and much more.
The Rolling Stones Official App has been developed and produced by global entertainment company Endemol in partnership with live entertainment promoters Dainty Group and the Rolling Stones.
Mick Jagger commented: “We wanted to do something a bit special and innovative. An App that really connects with the user, lots of exclusive content, integration with social networks, and the ability to make a song request for the upcoming shows.”
Keith Richards added: “There’ll be quite a few surprises in there for the fans; some behind the scenes footage; some old, some new stuff that very few people get to see. It’s all part of a rather splendid celebration for us.”
