Apple Offers Tickets with Album Buy
Apple's iTunes Music Store entered a new era on Tuesday, making available for pre-order tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' North American tour. The tickets will be sold alongside a new double album entitled "Stadium Arcadium," which goes on sale May 9. Users will receive a code with the album purchase that can be used to buy tickets before they go on sale to the general public.
Apple joined up with Ticketmaster for the offering, and has priced the album at $19.90 USD. Exclusive videos and an audio interview will be made available to customers alongside the music tracks. Last month, Warner Music released the entire Red Hot Chili Peppers archive -- complete with unreleased tracks -- exclusively on iTunes.
