What would be amazing is do what Peter Gabriel does and sell silver cds of individual shows. The mixes are so-so but great to have a proper souvenir from the shows.

I would welcome anything like this. I love to have a recording of the shows i've been too.

I'd also love to have copies of shows I went to… the Bruce Springsteen digital download method would be fine for me, but the Peter Gabriel pressed CD version would also be fine.  (Peter's CDs are more expensive than Bruce's downloads, but to me there's something cool about having a tangible, physical object to commemorate the event.)  It's usually pretty easy just to find a bootleg recording from a show for free, but i'd be willing to spend $20 for a professional quality recording done by the band.

Didn't releasie Bruce had started this!

Would love for U2 to do this as well.

Being the corporate money making machine they are these days, it can only be a matter of time before they latch onto this cash cow.

They talked about doing this a while ago (at the time it was going to be something new in the industry), but I think the problem they ran into is that they are perfectionists (especially the Edge) and just could not live with the sonic imperfections of each recording without proper mixing etc., which is why we have received odds and ends of live performances during tours and usually at least one full live show for a tour (after they commit the time to focus on it), but not every gig - they just don't have the time to record, mix and release all of the shows at the quality level they insist upon.

It's certainly not the same thing, but I HAVE been able to find much of the 360 show I went to on YouTube.

I have managed to find recordings of all of my shows I've been to also, but would love soundboard quality recordings.  Pearl Jam also does those and you even get a neat little box to put them in.
