Bruce Springsteen has revealed more details about his forthcoming Instant Bootleg Series.

Earlier this week, Springsteen formalised plans to offer instant downloads of live recordings from his shows.

Now, reports Rolling Stone, fans will be able to download complete concerts from Springsteen’s upcoming tour of South Africa, Australia and New Zealand approximately 48 hours after each show ends.

Rolling Stone quotes Springsteen fan site, Backstreets, who claim Springsteen will be offering direct audio downloads through his official Live Nation online store, with no physical purchase required. There will be two options for audio formats: MP3 (320 kbps) or FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec). Pricing will be $9.99 for MP3 or $14.99 for FLAC. A further option is USB Wristbands, which are available to pre-order here.

Meanwhile, Springsteen played his first gig of 2014 on Saturday, January 18. You can watch footage of the show here.
