    umm They already have!!
    today brought the Consumer Electronics Show to a halt with a live performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The concert, broadcast live in surround sound on SIRIUS, was attended by huge numbers of convention attendees and packed the aisles and neighboring booths.

    I will find the links to the local info as well.
