San Francisco, CA – Rock touring legends Widespread Panic are pioneering a band-to-fan HD video program at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA this weekend. Fans can purchase HD video downloads of each of the band’s three shows from The Fox at the band’s popular live music channel LiveWidespreadPanic.com. The videos will also be available as mail order DVDs. This weekend marks the first time any band has offered video downloads to fans immediately after the band leaves the stage.
A LiveJam HD production, this weekend’s video downloads will be offered as true High Definition 1080i MP4 files. Full concert video downloads are $15.95 and individual songs will range from $1.29 to $1.49 depending on length. Fans may opt for a physical DVD for $25 including shipping. Fans can save 15% by ordering the three night run at The Fox as a bundle.
In 2005 Widespread Panic partnered with band-to-fan service provider nugs.net to release every note they play live via LiveWidespreadPanic.com. Full concerts are available in MP3 and true CD-quality FLAC lossless downloads. Selected shows are also available in higher-than-CD-quality 24 bit FLAC-HD. Each concert is also available on physical CD. Fans have downloaded over 6.5 million songs since the site launched in March 2005.
