E! will broadcast a live pre-show ahead of the final night of the Rolling Stones’ 50 & Counting anniversary shows at Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center, the network announced Tuesday.
The one-hour special, dubbed “Live From the Rolling Stones,” will air on Dec. 15 and feature behind-the-scenes access to the show and exclusive interviews with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.
“Live From the Rolling Stones” acts as a lead into the performance, which will also be broadcast on pay-per-view on Dec. 15 at 9 p.m. Eastern time/6 p.m. Pacific time through cable and satellite providers.
The band kicked off its 50 & Counting tour last week in London with a 2½-hour concert that included guest appearances from Mary J. Blige, Jeff Beck and ex-Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. The brief run celebrating their half-century together will stop in Brooklyn on Saturday (with Blige and buzzy guitarist Gary Clark Jr. tapped to join them) before the final two shows at Newark’s Prudential Center.
