Concerts to Go

January 22, 2004

On the upswing — bands selling recordings of their live concerts on their web sites. Fans get what they want, bands get a big chunk of a new revenue source, as well as a great tool for convincing fans to go out and see the band live. Using off-the-shelf tools, a concert can be recorded, a light bit of production done, and the end result available for purchase and download the next day. And the price is often right, too — Phish’s New Years Eve concert this year was available the morning of January 2nd, for $11.95. And no stinkin’ DRM in sight.

Offer something to people that they want, and you’ll be amazed at what they’re willing to pay for (Techdirt)
