    and also since we are an international community please write requests: Year month day -- it is much easier to read ... :D

    Wonderful choice -- this show is one of my favourites and supposedly and I was not told directly -- I read this: It is Jon Landau's favourite concert. :D

    That's fair enough, it's how I label each show on my Apple Music! 

    I've been seeing it mentioned loads lately and have been reading up on it. I'm not expecting it in the Archive Series any time soon* so I'm wanting to review it. Thanks for uploading! 

    The (second to) last time I did this the show was released six months later - you might want to bookmark this post ;)

    A little stroll down the Lakes memory lane and a bump for this topic :P:D

     

    Convenient!

    Thanks Paolo. With your reviews you keep alive an old tradition of bootleg and assorted record reviews which were done in the past by an array of Springsteen fanzine's like Backstreets (USA), For True Rockers Only (UK), The ties that bind (UK), Follow that dream (IT), Roulette (NL) and Thunder Road (BE) and last but no least https://www.collectorsmusicreviews.com/?s=Springsteen

    Thanks for taking the time to check these reviews out mate! It's also really nice of you to include me in the same sentence as those fanzines. 

    Who'd have thought it!

    How's it going

    Would anyone be able to share April 24th, 1981 from Lyon, please? I'm very intrigued by a supposed moment of audience participation in-between "The River" and "Badlands".

    Thanks :)

    A bootleg does exist of this show, right? I didn't actually check...

  5. Hi everyone

    I haven't written a typical blog post for yesterday's release, and I'm still not 100% whether I will. Not to worry though if you enjoy my write-ups, because I was able to write the Backstreets review instead. You can check that out here

    I've also updated Part 4 of the ongoing Guides, and I'll be adding a rating and a couple of song recommendations within that in the future. 

    Cheers :)

    I don't normally get involved in contrived. long shot speculation, but as I currently have nothing better to do, here goes:

    The Tweet about the technical issues with the 2009 MSG show made mention of the Rising tour, which might (but only might) have been a clue to a forthcoming Rising release. This latest Tweet talks about 'back in your ears' which might (but only might) be a hint to a show containing Back In Your Arms.

    Put the two (admittedly contrived) clues (which might not be clues) together and you get the last night of the Rising Tour from Shea Stadium.

    You never can tell for sure when it comes to the Archive Series, can you?
