Official 2014 Press Release

Pre-order USB guitar concert sticks for the 2015 Tracker tour

Thursday, February 19, 2015

USB guitar concert sticks are now available to pre-order for European, UK and North American dates on Mark’s Tracker tour!

These high-quality recordings will again be housed on metal USB concert sticks based on the shape of three different guitars, which Mark actually plays in concert – complete with matching case. If you pre-order all three models (regardless of which concert), you will receive a matching case which fits all three.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

European/UK Pre-orders will be shipped two days after each concert. Delivery estimates for Europe at 5 to 10 business days, and 10 to 20 business days for the rest of the world. Please note that orders of more than one concert stick will be shipped following the last of the selected dates. North American pre-orders will be shipped on November 23 at the latest.

The concerts will also be made as MP3 and FLAC download.

All the concerts from the 2010 Get Lucky tour and the 2013 Privateering tour are still available as an MP3 download.
