  1. Don’t know if non-Bruce linked ticket sales are allowed on here, if not I’m sure the mods will not let this through... However, I have 1 spare ticket for Richard Hawley at the Brighton Dome this Friday Oct 18 face value £27. Also 2 spare tickets available for the Detroit Cobras rare visit at the Electric Ballroom Camden Thursday Oct 24, face value £25. Face value required please, available due to a friends ill health.. Would rather these went to Lakers than some random Gumtree punter. Any takers?..
  2. Careful Bruce, she’s collection stones, you could well wake up with those buggers in your mouth!!!!
  3. It’s showing at the Filmhouse in Northampton. Got 2 tickets but there are plenty of the 88 seats left. Lovely little cinema, so Northants Lakers give it a go!
  4. Playing in London, 2nd time in 20 years on Oct 24, May have a spare ticket. PM me if interested.
  5. In my dreams Parkinson, the greatest interviewer, would be interviewing Bruce in a well researched programme. Should have happened 30 years ago, unfortunately now Parky would be discussing equity release or funeral plans. Hey ho, amusing that De Niro has been largely overlooked in this thread whilst Paul Rudd has been explored in depth. I like DeNiro films, don’t know much about Rudd. What a queer lot we Lakers are....
  6. Paul Rudd is another Jersey boy has acted in various films including Anchorman. Probably all know each other which should make for a relaxed chat followed by a sing song round the old Joanna. Maybe a pop- in on one of Jakes gigs. That should boost the London ticket sales although he (Jake) is in Belfast the night GN is recorded in London.
  7. If this is true (and it’s on the BBC website) then Bruce is on the Graham Norton Show on October 11. Not only that, Robert De Niro is on the same show too. Thats a hell of a coup and frankly I had to read it twice to believe it. Bruce is obviously there to plug the WS movie and De Niro The Irishman. The show is actually recorded the day before but not sure if it’s London or Manchester where it takes place. Hopefully Graham Norton will take the opportunity to verify the Springsteen/Bono Dublin restaurant story from a few years ago. Coincidentally, Jake is touring the UK that week...... Something to look forward to. Wow
  8. Hmmm. Saw LSATDOS twice this summer, excellent both times. On You Tube this does indeed not sound great but I’m sure that if you were there it would have been a pleasant if ragged surprise. Got to give them 9/10 for effort.
  9. Don’t read the review posted above if you don’t want to know what the Glen Campbell song is. It’s in there.
  10. This particular cinematic event better be coming to the UK and specifically the Northampton Picture House. I think we all knew that this album wouldn’t get supported by a tour, so this looks like the next best thing. Judging from the trailer it looks beautifully made and the voice sounds in good nick too. Isn’t it great to see so much thought is being taken in how this is presented. Bruce seems to really care about this music, more so than recent albums and its worthy of all this care and attention. Plus, we get to hear him hit the high notes in Sundooooowwwwn. Cannot flippin’ we’ll wait for this. Wonder how much the tickets were for this Barn Dance?
  11. Only 10 shows to my name (lightweight I know) but would love to Bruce with ESB somewhere outside the UK as the atmospheres look superb. The Barcelona DVD is still a go-to choice when I want to disturb the neighbours and the crowd shots including the 3 tiered piggy back are great to watch. Off topic question for Geordie 99, how do you feel about your new manager, I ask as an Owls fan?
  12. The vocals were recorded partly in Yorkshire and the rest in NY. Seriously though I too have wondered why he changes part way through, there has be a reason, Bruce thinks about this stuff too much for there not to be...
  13. Is that like ‘Orse Racing? is it not officially decreed that the H in ‘Orse has been removed?
  14. Very rarely post on this forum but wanted to say thank you for the brilliantly written posts on Western Stars which have analysed its appeal from many different perspectives. Adding to the posts so far seems a bit unnecessary but as a very long term fan (over 40 years) I’d like to say what a joy it is to hear a new work from my favourite artist which is just so dammed good. Unlike Bruce’s last few offerings which have had the odd strong track, WS holds together as a piece of work, the song writing is so very powerful and the melodies memorable. Equally important is the fact that Bruce is singing so well and in a sound mix which leaves room for his voice to shine and not some overly compressed cacophony of 15 instruments all producing a bit of and aural mess. It was bought for me as a UK Father’s Day gift from my daughter who is also a fan. My son sent me Look Now the latest Elvis Costello. Huge EC fan but sorry Elvis, you have barely had a look in since Western Stars came my way. This album fits my life today as BTR did in 1975 (ie slower) and the soundtrack to life has another important staging post. It’s nice to recommend a Bruce album to the non-believers knowing they will probably like it too, been a while since I could say that.
