London : American heavy metal band Metallica has launched a new iPhone application to allow fans to listen to its live show recordings on the move.
The band has teamed up with Apple to allow subscribers access to its website, which offers fans song downloads from 269 of their concerts with an access to the Live Metallica application for just 99 cents, reports contactmusic.com.
iPhone users who have accounts on the band’s site can download the tracks they’ve bought to their Apple phones and fans will even be allowed the latest songs for free.
“In our ongoing efforts to be of service and give you as many options as possible in the digital era, we asked the brainiacs that help us out with LiveMetallica.com to come up with a super-cool iPhone application that creates a streaming interface to your LiveMetallica account,” read a statement on the band’s website.
Frontman James Hetfield added: “It’s about time, and I think it’s the right move.”
