Pearl Jam have announced a new ‘bootleg’ programme for their 2008 tour, which kicks off tonight (June 11) in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The band are making MP3s and FLACs of their shows available on their website two weeks after each show. Pearl Jam will also release mobile bootlegs of three live tracks per show, which will be released via Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music service or Pearl Jam’s website. These tracks can be used as ringtones or ringback tunes.

In addition to digital bootlegs, fans can purchase CDs of Pearl Jam‘s live shows for the first time on this tour. The discs will ship within three weeks of the live shows.
