Abbey Road Live Expanding

EMI Music Australasia will expand its new venture Abbey Road Live, where fans can take the show home on CD as they leave the venue – fully mixed and mastered on the fly.

Abbey Road Live was launched during the Pixies’ “Doolittle Live” shows around Australia and New Zealand.

It had a solid average sell-through rate of 13 percent so far, with sales in Auckland reaching 25 percent.

Says the company’s Australasia Country Chairman, Mark Poston, “We’re already in discussion with a number of exciting artists for later in the year but starting with such an influential rock band like The Pixies is a great launching pad.”
