USB copies of each show?

Postby frontier(s) » Thu Apr 29, 2010 11:10 am

On the second to last day of my recent visit to the States I heard a local rock radio station in Portland make a statement about how the Kiss tour of Europe was going to feature an availability of USB sticks that contain the live recording of each show at the merch stands at the end of each show, I guess the principle is similar to the Instant Live CD system but a little more technologically advanced.

The radio station seemed to think this was a 'first' (?) and billed it as something noteworthy.

BTW, whilst I was over there it seemd 'Sonic Boom' is still receiving a lot of attention and I frequently heard MDD and Say Yeah on various radio stations.

They done it in the States last year too, they had KISS usb wrist bands. I've got one from the Vegas show (sadly didn't actually go to the show...).

Frontiers, hope you had a good trip "over the pond".

USB's were sold at the US shows I attended.

Not sure how USB's work as in .......

The cds - you can purchase the whole set (at the end of the show) - you get given a first cd of roughly an hour and a bit of concert and to obtain the second cd - you are given a card with a number on it - you log onto the site and the second cd is sent to you.

Since USB will be one item - either you will have to wait a long time for the USB to be completed or again you will be given a code to access the part of the show you are missing.

At the moment, I'm in physical format mode ie nice to have a cd - you can play anywhere.

I agree with you Dan Bacht : I prefer the CD format to the USB. It's nicer and you can play it everywhere, and a nice item to add to your colection...

If you buy the USB stick with your chosen show on it, are you able to then copy the contents to your computer and then delete the USB stick therefore being able to use it for other things??
