  1. Wow, this man and the band are really amazing! The legend lives on and just keeps getting better.
  2. True and 14 at Ullevi 1 is pretty damn good!
  3. I stand to be corrected but I think the show with most tracks from different albums was at Gijon in 2013. I only recall this because I was at the show. Greetings: Spirit WIESS: Rosie BtR: BtR, She's the one, Thunder road, Tenth Avenue Darkness: Badlands River: River, You can look, drive all night, Out in the street Nebraska: Atlantic City BITUSA: Darlington, BITUSA, Dancing Lucky Town: Better Days MTV: Light of Day Live 1975/85: Because the night Tracks: My love will not let you down Rising; Rising, Sunny Day Magic: Radio Nowhere The Promise: Aint good enough for you WB: WB, Jack of all trades, Death to my hometown, Shackled and drawn Great show that also included the following covers.

  4. Is this the GF version? If so, I'll grab it too, thanks.
  5. I would guess they do work. I have Etymotics which I'll use if I think the sound could be damaging. They work really well and you only need to damage your ears once to suffer deafness or tinnitus. Reasonably priced. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Standrad-Headset-Plugs-Etymotic-ER20/dp/B0044DEESS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1471715037&sr=8-1&keywords=etymotic+earplugs
  6. Sorry, I don't have it but this is the version you'd be looking for as opposed to the one on Jungleland. http://bootlegpedia.com/en/product/G.R._808-809-810 It might be on Dime, if you can navigate your way thru their search facility.
  7. Having Bruce/ESB back on tour in Europe, having tickets to go see them, it's that simple really.
  8. I wouldn't class any of these as the best TV series of all time but I've enjoyed watching all of these and Channel 4's catch up free service All4 has a few of them still available to watch. Spiral - French TV series - a cop show but a very good one. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt0477507/ Trapped - An Icelandic cop show but it's location makes it very different and watchable. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt3561180/?ref_=nv_sr_1 I'm a great fan of Scandinavian shows including Wallander (original Swedish version), The Bridge, The Killing (all cop shows) but also the political drama Borgen (from Denmark). Thicker Than Water - A Swedish drama about a family with secrets. It has a crime element but it's different. Location, scenery and filming is superb. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt3139330/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Spin - French political thriller. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt2181219/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2 Blue Eyes - Swedish political thriller. Bit far fetched at times but very watchable http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt3632248/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Occupied - A Norwegian political thriller where Russia has invaded. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt3632248/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Deutschland 83 - German political/spy drama set in cold war East/West Germany. http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt4445154/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
  9. I also wrote that chequered shirt guy's view was only one fan's view. You may be right the full album download of Gothenburg 3 may be better than Paris 2 or again, not.
  10. Of course but I wanted to see the River in an arena so Paris fit the bill. I've no doubt Gothenburg 3 was fantastic but chequered shirt iguy s commenting from his perspective from the pit. I'd have loved Gothenburg 3 too but I'd have been in the stands and great crowd or not, it's still a stadium show, albeit one of the best places to see Bruce.
  11. I think despite hearing a lot of full River shows, you'll enjoy Paris 2 and indeed Paris 1, both were great shows. Only one fan's (chequered shirt guy) view but he did see most if not all the shows on the tour. "More than any other show on this tour, the concert actually felt the most like the first time The River was played in its entirety way back in 2009 at Madison Square Garden. Since the crowd knew this wasn’t a nightly occurrence, a uniquely special vibe of overwhelming elation was in the air, based partially not on what would be played but how the songs played would sound together. Judging from the rousing standing ovation that greeted the album’s conclusion after Bruce’s usual time-themed concluding speech, their lofty expectations were exceeded, and then some." https://writeallnite.wordpress.com/2016/07/13/paris-2-the-luckiest-of-towns/#more-1054
  12. And the BBC and Daily Mail wonder why...
  13. Tell that to Westmonster.
  14. Have both but came out as traditional working class in this "test". Mind you I'm Scottish first, European second and British, a very distant third.
