Pearl Jam have rolled out their plan to distribute their live concert bootlegs from their U.S. tour, kicking off tonight in West Palm Beach, Florida. As in years past, Pearl Jam will sell MP3 and FLACs of the complete concert two weeks after the show on their website. This time around, though, the band will also allow fans to purchase physical CDs of the concerts which will ship within three weeks of the show date. And "by request from fans who are increasingly accessing their music via their mobile phones," Pearl Jam will also select three highlights from each concerts and make them available through Verizon's VCast system. One of the three songs from each concert will be a free download, with fans given the option to purchase the remaining tracks. The songs can then be used as ringtones, ringback songs or just for listening purposes.
