Take A Springsteen Concert Home With You, Bruce Announces USB Bootlegs


I remember Sunday mornings I would come downstairs, and find my parents sitting in the living room rocking out to Bruce Springsteen. In the later years, when Sirius radio came about, that was all I could find on in the family car. My parents cherished any live recordings of Springsteen they could find. Swooning over 3, 4, 5, hour concerts, his live performance was justified with their energy.

Now, you will be able to take that performance home with you, with the newly announced purchasable wrist bands. At upcoming shows, you will be able download shows onto your already purchased wristbands, taking certain shows home with you. You will be able to choose which concert you wish to buy, granted it has been 48 hours since the show.

Follow us after the jump to see a statement from Bruce about the wristbands.

I’d like to get an archival series going in some way. I’d like to make things more available through the Internet. The Internet has become our friend…I think we live more in a Grateful Dead touring idea that everything you do is recorded now. And that’s OK with me, you know. As a matter of fact, I believe on this tour, we’re starting to do something like you can come in, you can buy a [wrist]band, you can get a copy of the night’s show. So hopefully we’re gonna do that at a really nice-quality level.
