DirecTV will air the exclusive U.S. broadcast of The Prince's Trust Rock Gala 2010 in 3D on
Christmas day, the satellite television provider announced Friday.
The two-part concert series, shot in London in Nov., will premiere
on DirecTV's 3D channel, n3D at 8 p.m. The charity event features performances
from artists including Eric Clapton and Queen's Brian May and will also be
available in 2D on DirecTV's 101 Networking beginning Dec. 31. In addition to
the gala, n3D will also air the 3D broadcast premiere of Bon Jovi's new music
video "What Do You Got."
"This is a phenomenal opportunity to see a variety of A-list
musicians performing together for a great cause," said Chris Long, senior vice
president of DirecTV Entertainment. "The stunning scenery of London's Royal
Albert Hall combined with the robust list of musical performances, all produced
with the latest technology, makes this a 3D event that can't be missed."
