  1. Hi, sorry, me again. I skimmed through this list the other night and after thinking to myself "I've written 93 of these?", I remembered there are four 2016 show reviews on the site right now that really should be on here. So I've decided to add them along with Sunrise 2014 and Western Stars: Songs From The Film. I won't allude to #100 potentially being a Wembley 1981 show because I've done it twice now and pretty much jinxed it each time, but aye, hopefully the new additions to the list have served you, or will serve you, just as well as the ones that have been here since last August.
  2. Upon confirmation that this month's Archive Series release is delayed for a little while, here's my review of April 29th, 2014 - Sunrise, FL. Enjoy! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/06/02/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-29th-2014-sunrise-fl-bbt-center/
  3. You'll likely have to scroll all the way down to January to find it. To be on the safe side though... And as Backstreets have just delayed this month's release, I'll have my review of Sunrise 2014 posted later on.

  5. Dallas is kicking about in pro-shot you're correct there. If New Orleans is too I haven't come across it, I listened to the audience recording for my review of the show (set to be published w/c June 21st fwiw).
  6. Melbourne #2 16/2, Dallas 6/4, New Orleans 3/5 and Uncasville #2 18/5 are the four 2014 gigs currently unavailable on the Live site.
  7. I appreciate the kind words, Serg! It really does mean a lot and keeps me inspired to carry on writing. Honestly I thought my rating for Boston was quite high compared to the previous two 92/93 releases haha. I think there's certainly going to be an upwards trend for this tour on my part as more shows get released in the future and I become more and more appreciative of the era - and depending on how good the performances are in future unearthings of course. Yeah stillilllife requested on the first page if I could make a list organising the ratings of each show, and seeing as I'm both a sucker for lists and always more than happy to share my write-ups, it's something I've thought best to keep updating, although in the last few months I've tried to do it less often so people don't get annoyed at this and my other Definitive Guide thread 'filling up' the front page. As for whether my Boston review would be different if I wrote it for Backstreets, the answer to that one is absolutely. Even though Jon also had the benefit of being in attendance on December 13th, 1992 to help shape his review, when I was lucky enough to write the St. Paul 2012 review for Backstreets in January I had loads of fun embracing the style and tone that their write-ups take to paint a picture of the show, in contrast to my own blog write-ups that are 100% driven by my personal preference, good or bad, with a focus on the details. Here's a link to my Backstreets review as well if you, or anyone else, missed it
  8. A similar story to this time last month where a Wembley 1981 Archive release seems like - I'm reckoning the June 4th gig on June 4th - so here's your potentially last update of this list with June 5th as a 10/10, and additions of Boston '92, Pittsburgh, Raleigh and Atlanta '14. And of course coming up after this next Archive (or before depending) is April 29th, 2014 from Sunrise.
  9. Bruce and the Band didn't exactly need to "up their game" after Raleigh, but did they do that anyway? Well, Bruce is in a "River kind of mood" here in Atlanta, so I'll let you guess the answer https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/25/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-26th-2014-atlanta-ga-aarons-amphitheatre-at-lakewood/
  10. I'd be happy with Moncton 2012 at some point, we need all of the Wrecking Ball World Tour available eventually!
  11. Thanks for reading! I'm more than happy to continue writing these things and posting them knowing people are reading them and enjoying them - that's what it's all about, to be perfectly honest - and yeah as Nick mentioned earlier in the day the audio quality on these 2014 releases were a work in progress. Some sound ok, some sound poor, none sound stunning ala September 20th, 1978. It's a shame too as in this run-through of the tour I've revisited a bunch of damn good shows that could be daily listening - the second Auckland show is definitely one of them - but they're simply overshadowed by better sounding releases we've gotten from 2015/16 onwards. Who knows, maybe someday they'll be remastered and by then I'll have all these full write-ups out for people to check out if they're struggling to choose, hahaha.
  12. Here's my review of Raleigh for (hopefully) all of your enjoyment https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/19/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-24th-2014-raleigh-nc-pnc-arena/
  13. If you missed this in the pinned thread, just a quick one on the Woody Guthrie Award https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/14/e-street-review-bruce-springsteen-and-the-2021-woody-guthrie-award/
  14. Decided to write a quick E Street Review, just to sum last night's event, performances and notable comment up. https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/14/e-street-review-bruce-springsteen-and-the-2021-woody-guthrie-award/
  15. On a day that will bring about lots of future new album talk, here's my newest review of a 2014 show, Pittsburgh, which happens to focus quite heavily on modern-day Springsteen and the E Street Band songs: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/14/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-22nd-2014-pittsburgh-pa-consol-energy-center/
  16. Hope it'll be worth your time mate! I've had it written for a week or two now and barring any disaster it'll be up next week. As a little teaser for now, though, I'll say that I've addressed the reputation that the show has from those who were there, but that the experience a live audience has is very different to the one we have listening. So I've looked for the positives and negatives that were/weren't potenially influenced by how Bruce was interacting with Jessica and her friends in comparison to the rest of the PNC Arena.
  17. A review of Pittsburgh 2014 will be published to read in a couple of days, but for now, if you missed this... https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/08/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-december-13th-1992-boston-ma-boston-garden/
  18. I think I'm out of the loop here - the lack of responses seem to imply I am so apologies in advance - but these songs are from the June 24th, 1993 NJ Archive released in January 2018, not the new Boston release...
  19. What an enjoyable way to spend 3 hours that was! Here's the full review, enjoy!: https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/05/08/new-from-the-springsteen-archive-december-13th-1992-boston-ma-boston-garden/
  20. It's dawned on me that we might get another Wembley 1981 Archive Series release in the coming week and that might consequently lead to another rating revision. So here's an updated list featuring four more dates from 2014 (Virginia Beach, Columbus, Nashville and Charlotte) and one that could potentially have June 5th, 1981 as a 10/10 show for the final time. And it goes without saying, if there's an Archive delay this week for any reason, you'll be able to find a new review of Pittsburgh 2014 on The Blog to satisfy your Live Downloads - Archive Series reading needs.
  21. My full review of the first U.S. leg show to get in my "Best of the High Hopes Tour" guide is now up to read. Enjoy! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/04/27/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-19th-2014-charlotte-nc-time-warner-cable-arena/
  22. New review day: Nashville 2014, enjoy!! https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2021/04/22/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-april-17th-2014-nashville-tn-bridgestone-arena/
