  1. While I do think Steve’s tweet is pretty much confirmation there is no tour this year..probably anywhere…it would be nice to get an official announcement. They don’t owe us one, but a lot of people have saving money, vacation time and they now can put that to other use if there is no tour
  2. Yeah same thing here. Lots of vaccinated are now getting it. I think it’s becoming clear the vaccine/boosters don’t prevent you from getting this new variant though they do lessen the severity of the symptoms. But the thing is, next winter will probably be a new variant. At some point, don’t we have to try to live with it and get on with our lives? Otherwise, tons of bands/Bruce included may never tour again if they are waiting for this thing to be fully eradicated.
  3. I think it’s a little surprising considering Devils and Dust was nominated and I think Working on a Dream actually won a Grammy, and LTY is certainly better than either one of those, in my humble opinion of course
  4. 2 new: Ghosts and If I Was the Priest 2 old: Incident and Lost in the Flood To retire: Waitin on a Sunny Day
  5. Masks are rarely worn over here anymore even indoors as evidenced by this picture. Basketball has started back and arenas are packed and masks while recommended aren’t worn much. That’s why I’m even more hopeful for a 2022 tour. I mean if you can pack in like this for a basketball game, why not a concert?
  6. I thought it was a beautiful performance. I do wish he would lose the earrings. Was never a fan of them anyway and for someone in their 70’s now, seems silly looking.
  7. I think that time period is well represented and he made the best albums of his career during that timespan. I think when he looks back on it, and we look back on it, 87-2002 is the period that seems kind of lost. Especially the 90’s. Human Touch, Lucky Town, and Joad. That’s it. You did have Greatest Hits and Tracks. But only 3 studio albums.
  8. I think it would have made a lot more sense to maybe do a 2-3 disc Best of Darkness Live. Include the best performances of each of the staple songs and then some of the one-offs such as Summertime Blues.
  9. Just finished my first listen. It’s magnificent. Easily the best thing he’s done since The Rising. Maybe the best the band has ever sounded on a studio album. My favorites: damn near all of them. This is an album I will listen to beginning to end many times. Thousand Guitars and Janey Needs a Shooter are probably the weakest and my least favorites. I was a little unsure how the older songs would work but they sound great. If I Was Priest is so catchy especially the chorus. Amazing what he did with song. So different than the early demo boot but it works. Orphans sounds good too but I think I do prefer a slower version of that song. All the instruments step on the lyrics a little. It’s still a great song though. Overall, it’s 5 stars from me. Best he’s done in a long, long time. I just hope we get to hear these songs live
  10. I thought Letter to You was meh but Ghosts is outstanding!
  11. Thought it was great. Outstanding. Best thing he’s done in a while imo. Band sounds phenomenal. Classic E Street. Lyrics are much stronger than Letter to You. “I’m alive” means so much this day in time. Still here. Still fighting. His voice isn’t what it once was but he’s over 70 now and that’s understandable. Very excited for the album now.
