Performances by Velvet Revolver, Sum 41.
Verizon Wireless and Clear Channel Entertainment Properties have teamed to bring live concert video exclusively to Verizon's video casting customers. The deal was first tipped in the May 7 issue of Billboard.
The concerts will be seen over a newly launched Verizon channel, V Cast Encore. Within days of a concert performance participating artists will offer a few songs, for a limited time, on Encore. There are no additional charges for V Cast customers.
The concert performances will be from a wide range of artists in rock, pop, alternative, country, world and hip-hop. Starting today (May 24) shows available on Verizon's V Cast-enabled phones include Velvet Revolver, Sum 41, Chicago and Avril Lavigne.
