Just being curious...once they start streaming full live shows if it will continue to be free? If not...then how much would you pay to watch a live stream?

I'd spend about the same as I spend on expensive fine art....$0 :lol:

Actually, I was thinking about this very thing after the Tampa show and it occurred to me that Buffett is kinda like the Dead. You could (and can) find 9 million Dead bootlegs but that didn't keep Deadheads from going to shows, buying shirts and albums. Buffett is much the same. With RM and SunLover you can get all of the live music....that doesn't keep fans from buying discs and going to shows. I see videos the same...there's nothing like being there and my family room sofa and private bathroom is nothing like the parking lots, mud in the lawn, and lines for the john. :D

I would pay the same as I pay for audio of the concerts right now. At this point, media is media, be it audio or video.
