Former Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler is to make all the shows from his current US tour available for download through his web site. Knopfler is the first major artist to attempt this on such a scale though concerts as downloads have been touted as a possible major revenue stream for artists for some time. However, Knopfler’s gigs are being made available through PassAlong.com, which only supports Windows operating systems, on the bright side there will be no limitations on the number of time the gigs can be burned to CD.
