  1. Except for when snow messes with my plans, and I get my balls broken over it in the bar
  2. Hey, I was in the New Yorker that weekend as well. Would've loved to have a post-show beer talking about that magnificent show!
  3. WOW! Due to the reported technical problems with the recording of this show I had totally given up on ever seeing this show released. My first show on US soil, and what a show it was. Prior to this show I'm pretty sure Rosie was the only song I'd seen live from WIESS, so SO happy to see this album played from start to finish. And I could eventually forgive Jay Weinberg for not knowing The E Street Shuffle when Bruce wanted to play it in Stockholm earlier that year. Loved opening the WIESS show with Thundercrack, and even throwing in 'Bus Stop' later in the set to add the '73-ish
  4. Not the real deal as in an 'extended' Detroit Medley, but remember seeing it in Barcelona as the Magic Tour came to its conclusion over here in Europe 'some misty years' ago. That was some encore: Thunder Road The Detroir Medley Born To Run Rosalita (Come Out Tonight) Bobby Jean American Land Twist And Shout Also got The Detroit Medley again the next year in Stockholm, this time as the penultimate song, still not the 'extended real deal', but with a little 'Land of 1000 Dances' in there for good measure.
  5. Can’t believe its been 11 years allready. My first trip to the US of A., two of the greatest shows I’ve seen, and certainly one of the best weekends of my life. Let’s hope we get to do it all again, some day!
  6. Love this song, can't wait to see it live! Would make a great show opener!
  7. No confirmation obviously, but spotted Charlie a couple of times in the video. Btw. has Davey ever worked with Bruce in studio again in the modern era of the E St. Band? Would seem like a very Un-Bruce thing to do to all the sudden bring him back now?
  8. Wow, how great isn't this! 2020 just got alot better. Great song, great production, and most of all great to see them back together again doing what they're meant to do. For me this is just as good a first single as Radio Nowhere were when it came out as the first single from Magic 'some misty years ago'. Loud drums, lots of guitars, beautiful piano, so good to hear and see the E Street Band back together again. Love the way its recorded live in the studio. I hear some of Land of Hope and Dreams and Lucky Town in there, neither of which is a bad thing. Very excited to he
  9. Listening to Tracks and The Promise, makes you realise just how careful Bruce must've been at the time to get Darkness... 'right'. Very few of the outtakes from the era would have added much or improved the record at all if they were to replace one of the ten tracks that eventually ended up on the album. Maybe The Promise, but I even struggle to see where that could fit in on the record, or what song it should've replaced, and the fullband version isn't that great IMO. Love love love the solo piano version though.
  10. Love Love LOVE The Magic album. I remember hearing Radio Nowhere on the radio and being blown away by how great it was/sounded at the time. I had only seen Bruce and the mighty E St Band on The Rising Tour in 2003 and in 2007 I had slowly started to come to terms with the fact that D&D/Sessions could be the way forward from now, and BANG(!) out came the fantastic album that is Magic with the E Street Band firing on all cylinders again. Good times indeed.
  11. I’d miss Nils every minute of every show I’d attend, but its still the greatest live band around, IMO. Would people rather prefer just Bruce and Stevie on guitars over Tom Morello filling in? Stevie was amazing on The River tour four years ago as oposed to 2012-14 when he often just dissappeared in the background. I always assumed that had to to with the big band Bruce toured with those three years, but maybe it was just the fact that it was more River/Stevie songs four years ago?
