I Opened Up My Eyes To See…

Pay-per-view is coming to Facebook this June 14th and 15th when Widespread Panic performs from ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas.

Viewers can purchase either a single night for $5 or both nights for $10, with unlimited viewing through Sunday, June 19th at midnight. Payment can be made through Facebook Credits, or with PayPal.

We have always tried to be on the cutting edge of new technology, and this opportunity is a great example of that,” says Buck Williams, Widespread Panic Manager.

Fans of the band will also be able to submit questions via Facebook for a pre-show Q&A with Widespread Panic’s singer/guitarist John Bell on June 15th.

Freddy Fletcher, Partner, ACL Live and Founder of Stageside Productions, says, “Taking music to the nation as it’s happening — pretty darn cool.”

“We are excited to power one of the first pay-per-view concerts of its kind on Facebook using Milyoni Social Theater,” says John Corpus, founder and CEO of Milyoni.
