Springsteen to Begin Selling Concert Downloads

Posted by - 11:13 AM on 01/17/14
Beginning soon, if you go to a Bruce Springsteen concert, while you're there you will have the option to purchase a USB wristband for an official download of either that show or the show of your choice. The wristbands will also be available for purchase online.

This is a great idea. Hoping it's got the possibility to cut down on people watching the show through their phone screens.

Lot of jam bands have been doing this or something like it for awhile...Phish, Umphrey's, Widespread etc.

I think Pearl Jam might too actually. And Wilco's been recording every show and releasing about a quarter of them for the last couple of years. But yeah Bruce is a great artist to test-drive this idea on a larger scale.

He's not the first artist to do this by any means, but it's still awesome cuz he puts on the greatest shows. I wish they did this when I saw him two halloweens ago where he performed the Monster Mash for the first and only time

Metallica sells audio of every one of their shows on their website. I wish more artists would do this... Video would be amazing and would have to cut down on all the cellphones in the air the whole show. In fact, they should just stop allowing people to have their cellphones up and start selling video. I'm tired of 5,000 kids blocking my view just so they can get some cred on the internet.

Linkin park has been doing this like 5 years haven't they? I think Weezer has been too or at least for the blue/pink shows

Yup yup, exactly. I didn't know if it could be pulled off on a scale like that and seeing that it's happening is really cool.

Not bad. Make some extra money from something major artists tend to do routinely anyway. I'm sure a few artists who tend to add outros and long bridges like Muse or Ed Sheeran with his complicated loop pedal sequences will benefit from this.
