BBC Worldwide offers its first 3D music performances at MIPCOM 2011

BBC Worldwide is proud to announce its first 3D music offerings, a chance for audiences to see their favourite artists, up close and personal in a special 3D experience.  Bringing the joy of live music to a new level, Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour, Alice Cooper's Halloween Night of Fear and Elbow: Live on Air will be available to broadcasters at MIPCOM 2011.

Salim Mukaddam, VP of Music Television at BBC Worldwide, said: "We’re really pleased that we’ve been able to secure three amazing 3D music performance titles for Mipcom.  Capturing music performances in 3D brings a whole new experience to the viewer and arguably benefits from the technology more than any other genre, allowing the viewer to really feel as if they were at the live event. For BBC Worldwide to be able to launch its 3D offering with three titles of this calibre is truly fantastic."

After six million number one albums and over 100 million records sold worldwide, Britney Spears is back in her seventh concert tour, in support of her studio album Femme Fatale.  Showcasing her outstanding career, playing loved classics alongside her latest hits, this is guaranteed to be one of Britney's most entertaining shows to date.   Filmed in August 2011 in stunning 3D at the sold-out Air Canada show in Toronto, BBC Worldwide has attained distribution rights outside the USA. The 2D version will be available for broadcast from Christmas Eve 2011, with the 3D version available in February 2012.

Alice Cooper's Halloween Night of Fear will see the legendary performer take to the stage at Alexander Palace on 29th October for an evening of thrills, blood spills, guts and gore. The set of over 20 songs will include classics such as School’s Out as well as tracks from his brand new album.  The two hour ‘as live’ mix will be available on 30th October 2011 for Halloween broadcasts. .

From the creative team of the internationally acclaimed 'Live From Abbey Road', in conjunction with Universal Music Group and Air Studios, Live On Air enables the audience to experience Brit and Mercury music prize winners, Elbow like never before..  The programme was shot in 3D over three days in Wakefield as the band prepared for its first headlining arena tour. As well as interviews and backstage footage, it sees them performing tracks from their latest album 'Build a rocket boys!' as well as Elbow classics.
