  1. Now we are in a bit of an extended break before the AU/NZ shows, I'm assuming there will be one or two archive releases shortly? Anybody heard any confirmation of such or even what they might be?
  2. He was there with a mate of mine. I can confirm that he did pull through. Great work by everyone involved definitely saved a life that day. In fact you could probably say that his life was saved because he was at a Bruce concert. Had help not been so readily available, it may well have been a different outcome.
  3. Back half of the floor is seated. Front is a single ga/pit. So if you have a ga ticket you are in the pit.
  4. Will be the roll call system. Roll calls every few hours until mid afternoon at which time you'll need to hang around till about 5 and they take us in.
  5. Yep Me too. Weird.
  6. I'm seeing the same. 9th are there but not 7th. Seems like a glitch, a very odd one though. I hope to collect my tickets in the next week or so. I let you know how I get on!
  7. Yep. The most disappointing of the archive shows sound quality wise. It's not the entire show, just here and there but enough to be quite annoying.
  8. A little more fuel for the fire http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/bruce-springsteen-australian-tour-rumours-are-born-to-run-and-run-20160907-grbcii.html
  9. That's why you can also choose to download ALAC. The "A" stands for Apple! These will also play in most players including iTunes and all "i" devices. Of course you can also convert either flac or ALAC to MP3 or burn them to CDs if that is what you need. But you can't (really, really shouldn't) convert or burn mp3s.
  10. I learned this morning that we have lost yet another of our community. David was the founder and driving force behind a great community Facebook page. David died suddenly recently of an undiagnosed brain tumour leaving behind a wife and beautiful young daughter. He was in his early 40's. Taken way too soon. I know he was active here for some time, but not sure about recently. I can't remember his screen name, but perhaps one of the admins can help with that. His page can be found here: https://facebook.com/BruceSpringsteenAustralia/ RIP David Edit: Thanks to ross, his screen name here was Dalison.
  11. I always buy music in lossless format. You can then always convert them to mp3 or any other format if that suits your needs. Just make sure you keep the lossless versions as 'masters'. If you have only have mp3, then that's what you're stuck with.
  12. As Phish release their shows through Nugs also, I have assumed that Nugs introduced Bruce's people to Jon Altschiller. John Cooper is behind the board for the show and is reponsible for the setup. He was also the guy who did the crappy early mixes. Overall I'm not that impressed with his work, but he has been working for Bruce for a long time. In fairness though, I think it is far too much to expect the same guy to be responsible for setting up all the sound gear, mixing the show on the night, then do mixes for release between shows on a tour of this scale.
  13. Doesn't really qualify as a rumour i guess. http://brucespringsteen.net/?p=10300&fb_action_ids=10209501709128016&fb_action_types=og.likes
