LIVE NATION has joined with the ITUNES STORE to launch a new live music program, which launched today. LIVE NATION STUDIOS will now offer exclusive recorded and filmed concerts from its network of "wired" venues for purchase and download only on iTunes.
Exclusive live recordings from OK GO, JESSE MCCARTNEY, SAVING ABEL, A FINE FRENZY, DUFFY, PLAIN WHITE T'S and ZIGGY MARLEY, to name a few, have been released this week, with more to follow. "We are thrilled to offer artists a new high-quality platform to share the magic of their live shows with their fans," LIVE NATION Pres./CEO MICHAEL RAPINO said.
LIVE NATION regularly records concerts in more than 80 of its venues, which have been transformed into next-generation "wired" live recording studios, and will now offer a variety of them for purchase and download exclusively on ITUNES. To coincide with the program's launch, ITUNES has added a new area dedicated exclusively to live recordings.
