For the first time, iTunes Music Store is selling an entire live concert as a single download. The promotion — which will kick off and be announced tomorrow (Feb. 24) — is for two shows by Widespread Panic, recorded Dec. 30-31, 2003, at Phillips Arena in Atlanta.
The downloads will be priced at $14.99 for both complete nights — encompassing eight hours of music — or $9.99 for one night.
The music is exclusive to iTunes; it will not be sold as an album, according to a representative for Widespread Panic.
The band’s next album, the live CD “Night of Joy,” is due March 23 on Widespread/Sanctuary. It chronicles a set of shows recorded Nov. 6-7, 2003, in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
