Concert on a phone

On a 3G cell phone, that is. The band is Rooster, and their 45-minute concert (probably right about now, Tuesday evening, London time) is the first ever to be "phone cast" in the UK, the BBC reports. It's available to about 1,000 fans paying five pounds each (about $9) for the privilege of listening to Rooster on their phones (definitely says something about the band's popularity!). "3G technology lets people take, watch and send video clips on their phones, as well as swap data much faster than with 2G networks," according to the BBC. "People with 3G phones in the UK can already download football and music clips on their handsets." Concerts will soon be coming to a phone near you - wherever you are!
