Oh No, Not Bocelli
On second thought, let's not.
As a subscriber, I just got an e-mail inviting me to order tickets, ahead of the general public, to his "Intimate Evening of Romantic Arias" ("intimate" meaning Avery Fisher Hall instead of large arenas). The announcement links to the tenor's website, where I can download Bocelli ringtones and buy his CDs. (No, I will not give you this link!)
The Philharmonic's recent decision to allow downloading of its concerts on iTunes is the right kind of popularization. This one's just a crossover down the slippery slope.
