Kenny Chesney, one of the biggest ticket-sellers of this century, has partnered with Qello, a new digital syndication service, for the premiere of the digital release of his electrifying 2009 Sun City Carnival Tour concert film, Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D. Now, millions of fans can experience the magic and thrills of Chesney's high-energy performances, up close and as never seen before in 2D-HD digital format on iPhone and Droid.

Qello's debut product, the Chesney App, is a first-of-its-kind HD concert App with easy to navigate chapters. Qello is releasing the Chesney concert film through a special digital marketing campaign with the support of the Apple and Droid App Marketplace. Following this first release on mobile devices, the concert film App will extend into the Gaming Console market and ITPV, spanning across all of Qello's digital distribution, and making Chesney the first-ever concert film on every device, anytime.
President of Qello Bob Frank said, "Kenny Chesney is one of the most popular performers in the world and a perfect partner for the launch of the exciting Qello platform. Just as Netflix did for movies, Qello is a first-mover, changing the way music fans will consume live concerts."
With the Qello premiere of Chesney's most recent tour, fans can relive the fun, the songs and the moments that make Kenny Chesney the must-see concert experience. You won't miss a thing.
Chesney said, "It was an amazing -- and at times scary -- experience to have cameras that close, in the air, in a blimp... cause they're everywhere. But when you see what this film captures... well, even for me, who's in the eye of the storm, I was taken aback! It has all the energy, all the thrills, and even better focus on some of the most rocking nights I can imagine. If you see this, you've seen me in a way I've never been seen..."
The concert footage was shot over six nights in five locations -- Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, Foxboro, and Indianapolis -- using a total of 22 3D camera rigs. The rigs included state-of-the-art systems from 3ality Digital outfitted with Sony 1500-series professional digital cameras.
Joe Thomas, director of the film, added, "Kenny is an incredible talent, whose live shows define what the concert experience should be about. This concert, its production, and the access that Kenny gave to our cameras, will give his fans an unprecedented opportunity to see, up close, the true strength of this man's attraction to the millions that have seen him live."
