Bruce Springsteen gives fans online access to gigs

Rock legend BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN is giving fans the chance to enjoy his shows from the comfort of their own homes by selling instant downloads of his gigs.

Fans of The Boss can buy special USB wristbands on the Internet or at one of his concerts, allowing them to download a concert of their choice hours after the event and watch online.

It will begin with his first ever show in South Africa, which is scheduled to take place in Cape Town on 28 January (14).

Springsteen revealed in a recent interview with npr.org that he would like to use the web for greater interaction with his fans.

He said, "I'd like to make things more available through the Internet. As a matter of fact, I believe on this tour, we're starting to do something like you can come in, you can buy a band, you can get a copy of the night's show. So hopefully we're gonna do that at a really nice-quality level."
