  1. So, once we devour Stevens book - who do we want to hear from next? I’m going with Gary …. He’s been around since day one and must have tons of cool stories for us!! Brad
  2. The best RITS is the next time he plays it .....
  3. Well on the last tour it happened for the first time because he had neck surgery in 2015, thus - will that trend continue; etc
  4. I think we're gonna see much of the same as we did for the last tour. I also think the days of back to back shows are gone. That sucks for fans like us who travel; look for changes or simply fucking hates waiting!!! lol I've seen over 123 shows and I can DEFINITELY tell you that a second straight nights energy is MUCH more on fire than if he skipped an evening. Personally, I'd like to see them play arenas but loose the behind the stage seating - simply keep the show front/center. That would also keep him less active, thus preserving him for the 2025 Tour!! Now, if we can only keep him from spending so much time in the audience, as he has this past decade - then we REALLY have a chance haha Brad
  5. Minus, "Burnin Train" & "Rainmaker" ..... as well as moving "One Minute Your Here" to another slot in the song order - I love this record and listen to it all the time! Ya know, come to think of it: I sorta think he's fucked up a bit this century on song order. Meaning, "The Rising" is FILLED with classics and is a GEM as a whole. But I'm sorry - the song order sucks on that record! Hey - maybe it's all mental because of the way he wound up presenting those songs on stage back in 2002 and as you fellow tramps know: WE PAY MUCH MORE ATTENTION to his live stuff! Who knows - Whatever - I understand he's portraying his message as an artist but, so what - song order sucks anyway and the same goes with LTY's song order hahaha (As if I've sold 100 Million of anything) lol I think "Magic" and "Wrecking" are solid. As for "WOAD" and "High Hopes", those are mostly outtakes - so I don't really see them as their own. However, they are both terrific with certainly - HH leading the way. Brad
  6. Dude ..... next time, try eating a powerful THC gummy prior to the listen - you'll be hauling-ass to the next "Bob's Big Boy" in your dreams lol Brad
  7. Any room for me ? The problem is I won't wanna leave lol
  8. All I know is that most of us here have watched they're kids grow up (albeit from a fans distance) and I cant be any more proud of her! This is the biggest honor that can be given to an American Athlete and she has for sure worked her ass off for this! As for who can/cant attend - Covid sucks, but its just our times. Good luck Jessie!!! Brad
  9. Yep! Great shows on that Podcast - that's the stuff that should have been on the old mans Sirius channel all along!
  10. All I know is that a 15 Year Old was in the audience that night never imagining that when he’s 51, he’d be waiting for the next tour with as much enthusiasm as he had then. Brad
  11. Wow …. Does this picture bring back memories: The most I had was over 350 shows at one point! We sure have all come a long way …. I love it buddy!!
  12. WHOO HOO!!!!!! NOW WE'RE TALKING!!! This was actually the second time I ever saw him - the previous night being the first! lol This show was most needed! Brad
  13. Wow …. The second show was my first bootleg! I was 11 and my neighbor had it on a record - as time went on, I discovered he did shows that went over three hours haha I was pumped when NUGS gave us the audio but I’m even more excited for this video, although I was never a big videoleg guy …. (FYI: However if anyone ever finds an ENTIRE professionally shot Fall 84 show - please let me know). Whats amazing - is when I look at all the other artists that participated in this project - they ALL have hit songs besides our boys!!! You younger folks wouldn’t understand but in those days - there were no Music Videos! So, if you didn’t hear someone on those piece of shit radios from the 1970’s - then the only way you saw your favorite artists face was in a magazine or on an album cover! Therefore, the band’s reputation as a live act was already FAR in place!! That’s the power of live music!!! Brad PS: Enough nostalgia - Bring on the 2022 LTY Tour!!
  14. I’m not sure I’m following this correctly - he did release a lot of albums during those years! No, he didn’t do what Billy Joel did - which was basically release something nearly every year (maybe that’s why that guy hasn’t written one new song since 1993), but the years your mentioning were very productive for the guys. However, I don’t think anyone here doubts his success would have been more than what it was before 1984 had he released "The Promise” in 1977; which - as far as I’m concerned - is truly the fourth album. Brad
  15. It’s definitely NOT a D/D show, let’s get that straight. The 2005 shows were "Concerts” - this a production. Regardless - the dude belongs running around the stage with an electric guitar! Brad
  16. People, I’m down here in Southeast Florida - I grew up moments away from where the building collapsed this week. Lets all play our mans song from "The Rising" and think of those climbing up the steps searching for loved ones. Thanks, Brad
  17. You won't believe this one, but: "Factory" from Houston: 11/29/84 Brad
  18. You have most of the same songs from each night but you don’t have the same show: BIG DIFFERENCE! Normally, like on the boots - you’ll feel a different audience with the music each night and it makes the songs (and the band’s energy) sound/feel different. Hence, this is what gets lost sometimes with soundboards. Brad
  19. Oh nice!!! Where’d ya get that video? I went to Arizona State University and I saw some shows there: What a horrible arena haha Brad
  20. NUGS: Is this the show from June 30 or July 1st? If you go to the NUGS App and check in your stash - it says June 30th, 1978! Ya'll also fucked up with the 6/23/93: THATS NOT AN E STREET SHOW PEOPLE!!!!! PLEASE MAKE CORRECTIONS; Otherwise - you dudes rock! Thanks Brad
  21. Love it when they release something that hasn't been a classic trading bootleg like this! However, shows are still needed from late 1984 and early 2012. Good job NUGS, Brad
  22. I’ll bet anything that "I’ll see you in my dreams” ends every single show on this run AND the next tour ….. if he ever picks up an electric guitar again. Brad
  23. Dude …. We wouldn’t be Springsteen fans without whining about something … that would take all the anger out of it! But you know what … all we’ve had are "Highs and Lows” since after the original 'River’ tour back in 1981 so why should we even be surprised with this turn of events? However, it’s enough - it’s time to call the boys and play the new album!!
  24. Then go play "The Palace” on the beach …. Me not happy But yea, your right - it kinda makes sense.
