Knopfler on download route via Crowfly

Mark Knopfler is the first major label artist to offer downloads of his concerts within 24 hours of an appearance. The former Dire Straits leader will offer performances from his 2005 world tour as digital downloads through an arrangement with Crowfly Digital Entertainment. Concerts will be recorded and mixed and offered online the day after the show. Downloads of concerts will be available for $14.99. There is no limit to the number of times a file can be burned to a CD, but Crowfly founder Eric Geadelmann said that decision is Knopfler’s. Technology is available to limit the number of CDs burned. Crowfly assumes all costs of the project and pays Knopfler a portion of each download. Knopfler, who records for Warners domestically and Universal internationally, will be offering about 15 shows from his world tour.
