Live Nation and iTunes team up

Depending on how you look at it, live music was either the first or the last wave of music to hit the Internet. Live music trading groups have existed since the early days of USENET, and tape-friendly bands have allowed their live shows to be stored on, but with few exceptions, live concerts have not been made readily available for purchase unless it was specifically recorded as a commercial concert.

Earlier this month, EMI discussed plans to potentially offer concert goers digital recordings of the show on CD, DVD, or digital device as they leave the venue. Today, concert promoter Live Nation and iTunes debuted an exclusive partnership with iTunes, pairing the largest events promoter with the largest music retailer.
