In fact, one of their concerts was broadcast on it:

    MBone – an IP multicast network built over the Internet. Rolling stones once broadcast their concert over it.

    Mbone (short for “multicast backbone”) was an experimental backbone for IP multicast traffic across the Internet developed in the early 1990s.

    A November 1994 Rolling Stones concert at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas with 50,000 fans was the “first major cyberspace multicast concert.” Mick Jagger opened the concert by saying, “I wanna say a special welcome to everyone that’s, uh, climbed into the Internet tonight and, uh, has got into the M-bone. And I hope it doesn’t all collapse.”
