Pearl Jam Reveals New Strategy for Concert Bootlegs


Regardless of if you're headed to the Pearl Jam show tonight in West Palm Beach, within the next two weeks, you'll be able to buy or download a live bootleg of the concert to your computer or Verizon cell phone.

Known for their ability to stay one step ahead of concert promoters, as of this morning, Pearl Jam revealed their new strategy of releasing live bootlegs all summer long of their concerts in conjuction with Verizon Wireless. The band already has a long history of selling copies of their concerts as MP3s, but this time around, you'll be able to get songs sent to your phone immediately after the show finishes...which is cool if you're a Pearl Jam fan and you've got a Verizon phone. You can read more about that story here.

But there's nothing better than the real thing so if you're headed to the concert tonight, stay dry and enjoy it.
