'7 Deadly Shows': Just heard back from Todd Singerman. These shows are legit, and there are marketing company's doing this kind of thing. A lot of bands are happy to release their live shows this way, rather than have them bootlegged. Marillion, ELP, and Asia are just 3 on Amazon who have live 2010 shows on sale just noticed on a quick look.
For some time, The Damned and Robert Plant have offered their shows as downloads the day after the performance. So they can then either be saved or burned to CD. Some bands offer download and / or CD, so it's modern technology getting back at the bootlegger.
And why ever not.
The artwork is a bit drab in most cases, but it's the music we're buying, innit!
