This is really cool. I think the Philly Jay’s did something very similar on their last national tour…
Abbey Road Live have announced that they will be recording The Pixies on their entire New Zealand and Australian Doolittle Live tour, offering high quality CD sets to fans immediately after each show.
The recordings are strictly limited to around 1000 per night, and some are available for pre-purchase via www.doolittlelive.com, with the balance for sale at the show.
I’ve ordered mine, and as far as I can tell you don’t actually have to show proof that you’re heading to the gig in order to purchase a CD. There’s an option to have the recording shipped to your house, so for all those who couldn’t afford tickets, this just might be a cool way to experience the shows on the cheap.
The only question then would be, which of their three Sydney shows will be the best?
