Wow, that would be great! I was at that show and I've been wishing I could re-live it.

July 28, 2008; Washington, D.C. – Iconic singer-songwriter Tom Waits is adding an extra stop to his sold-out “Glitter & Doom” summer tour: NPR Music’s “Live in Concert” series. NPR Music is the only place to hear a full concert from Waits’ tour, which will be available for both free streaming and podcast at beginning Tuesday, July 29.

During the show, recorded at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theater on July 5, Waits gives a stunning, two-and-a-half hour performance, featuring songs he’s never played outside a studio. The 25-track set includes “Hold On,” “All the World is Green” and “Hoist That Rag,” followed by an encore of “Anywhere I Lay My Head.

Waits is the latest musician to have an entire performance streamed by NPR Music, which frequently webcasts rock, pop and indie concerts as part of its expanding “Live in Concert” series. The series has featured more than 100 events to date. In March, NPR Music and Member stations traveled to Austin, TX, to live webcast and broadcast 14 concerts from the influential music festival South by Southwest, among them R.E.M., My Morning Jacket, Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver and Yo La Tengo. This summer, NPR Music is also webcasting and broadcasting performances from the Newport Folk Festival and JVC Jazz Festival Newport in Rhode Island.

NPR Music launched in November 2007 as a free, comprehensive music discovery destination, featuring content from NPR and 12 NPR Member public radio stations, as well as original-to-NPR Music features such as live performances, studio sessions, interviews, reviews and blogs. Specific sections of the site are dedicated to rock/pop/folk, classical, jazz/blues, world and urban music. The site culls from NPR’s and the stations’ extensive music archives to present thousands of features; its popular Concert section offers hundreds of regional and national web concerts, with more than 15 new performances added each month. NPR Music also has dozens of original music podcasts.

I have 11 songs from Tom's Akron 06 show (that I think is from NPR) on the bootleg cd "At the Civic Theatre" by Godfatherrecords. Excellent sound.

Also, FYI... the bootleg cds from the Glitter and Doom tour are already out. I just bought "Dirt is Key to the City" by Cellar Dweller Records which includes the entire June 20 El Paso show and part of the June 17 Phoenix show. Great sound.
