The Pixies To Offer Instant Live Recordings

Published: 2004-04-02
In what quickly became the hottest show on the market – the reunion tour of The Pixies – all is not lost for fans who could not get a ticket. The Pixies will be offering a double CD package of each concert on their North American tour. Through innovative technology created by DiscLive, CDs of the live shows will be available within minutes of concert's end. DiscLive has a mobile recording facility that can make 800 professional CDs in 20 minutes. The first 200 of which are available in the first five minutes after the concert is over.

Through this new technology The Pixies are offering a limited number of CDs from every concert on the "Warm Up" North American tour. Only 1,000 numbered copies of each concert will be printed. Each concert will be dated and come with its own artwork. Concert goers can purchase a voucher for $25 before the show and trade the voucher in after the show for a double length CD of the concert. Fans who will not be at the show but want a CD may do so through DiscLive at www.disclive.com. Only 500 copies of the concert will be available online and sell for $22. Any CDs not sold at the concert will be made available online. With only a very limited supply of concert CDs available, they are sure to sell out quickly. Fans may pre-order CDs of future shows now on the DiscLive website.

The Pixies wind up their North American tour at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California where 2,000 copies of the concert will be printed for that event. After Coachella The Pixies head to Europe for a tour. There may be a full length North American tour in the planning stages after the European tour ends.
