Pearl Jam goes digital for live bootleg series

Filed under
Web

Already at the forefront of issuing authorized "live bootlegs" of its shows, Pearl Jam will on September 1 launch its own digital download store via its official Web site (http://www.pearljam.com).

Hours after their completion, full concerts from the group's fall tour will be available for $9.99 as 192K MP3s, which are nearly 50% higher than the standard bit rate.

Each show will feature special artwork; a slide show with photos from the performance will run while the files download. The initial plan is to make all of Pearl Jam's upcoming shows in Canada and the United States available to download, excluding an August 29 concert in Missoula, Mont., that is doubling as a fundraiser for U.S. Senate hopeful Jon Tester.
