  1. 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.
  2. Doesn't really qualify as a rumour i guess. http://brucespringsteen.net/?p=10300&fb_action_ids=10209501709128016&fb_action_types=og.likes
  3. Hi, Travelling from Australia this summer to catch a few shows. Just need one inner pitch for Copenhagen. Thanks!
  4. The previous show (Oakland) has only just become available a few days ago. LA will be in the next couple of days I'm sure.
  5. I think the situation with the live downloads is very telling. They were pretty bad when they were being handled by the same people. Instantly improved out of sight when they started being done by someone with the right skills. The fact that they were willing to put out a product of that quality with their name attached to it to me is very telling. In their defence, though, I think it's a lot to ask one guy to set up all the sound gear for a show, do the live mix, travel to the next city and mix shows for release between. Seems pretty hectic to me.
  6. I really don't know why there should be any slowing of the archive releases. Nugs is just the distribution channel. They should be able to pump out a few releases each day if they needed to. There seems to be two distinct teams now. Toby Scott for the archives and Jon Altschiller for the tour releases.
  7. I received an email from Spanish promoter Dr Music a little earlier. Here is the google translated version: It can also be found here. http://www.doctormusic.com/new-reventa-entradas-march-16-2016 I really wish them well and I really hope they can make some progress, but alas I'm not overly confident.
  8. Albany back up with Bobby Jean included
  9. My observation is the the countdown timer is more or less random and if it completes prior to on-sale time it resets to zero and starts again. You get you chance to buy when it completes after the on-sale time. It seems the time from zero to complete is somewhat random, but at least 10min. So I guess you want to log in at least 15mins before tickets go on-sale. Does that make sense? Anyhow, I didn't have too much trouble getting FOS to Gothenburg 1 & 2
  10. Hi. Def worth the effort. I travelled from Australia in 2012 to see some European shows. My first 2 shows were Barcelona. GA tix were easy to get. I arrived about 11am first show day and got my number which was about 300ish. Queuing was easy, organised and uneventful. Got a great spot a few rows back from the rail. Show was fantastic, crowd amazing, only to be exceeded by Madrid a few weeks later. Queuing was a bit tougher in Madrid though.
  11. My plans have changed a little since the Scandinavian on-sale, so now I'd like to go to Copenhagen. If anyone has or knows of a spare FOS for that show, I'd be very grateful if you could point them in my direction. Thanks!
  12. Gothenburg 2 nights front GA for me! Very happy little Aussie!
  13. Firstly, let me say I'm glad that I'm that they have finally got people who can do the job right and make them sound how they should, even if it means they take a little longer. However, so far we have 4 complete shows since the tour began on 16th jan. So assuming they continue at the current rate it will take till June 2017 to release all the shows scheduled so far (incl Europe). Not sure that was ever really the plan. I guess this more an observation than a complaint.
  14. Shouldn't do. I've had success with that in the past in multiple countries. Not to say they won't change that at some point though.
  15. You're not supposed to, but not sure how else it can be full when not all ticket holders are in yet.
