Bruce Springsteen is set to offer instant downloads of live recordings from his shows.

In his recent interview with NPR, the rock frontman revealed his plans to offer fans a wristband after shows with the option to download the gig onto it. “I’d like to make things more available through the Internet,” he commented. “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 band, you can get a copy of the night’s show. So hopefully we’re gonna do that at a really nice-quality level.”

A press release states that the complete concert downloads will begin at his show in Cape Town on January 28. It stated: “Fans around the world can purchase a special USB wristband, both online and at the tour venues. They will be able to pick one show of their choice to download on their USB wristband (approximately 48 hours after the show).”

Meanwhile, on Sunday, January 19, Springsteen celebrated his 10th UK Number One Album with High Hopes. You can read Uncut’s review of High Hopes here.
