Rolling Stones fans may find they can get what they want after all, namely a live stream of the group's upcoming 50th anniversary concert.

Streamed by Yahoo and entertainment company WWE, the pay-per-view special will be shown on Saturday, December 15, at 6 p.m. PT via Yahoo Music. Dubbed "One More Shot: The Rolling Stones Live," the concert will be the latest in a series of events marking this year's 50th anniversary of the group's debut.

Fans who tune in to the stream at 5:30 p.m. can catch a special called "Countdown to the Rolling Stones," which features preshow activities and a countdown of the 10 greatest Stones moments throughout their history.

The concert will be streamed through different Yahoo Music sites around the world. The stream will set viewers back $40, a hefty price for a pay-per view event but quite a bit cheaper than attending the show live.

And it's the only way the vast majority of fans will be able to spend the night together with the Stones. Tickets for the live concert from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., are sold out.
