  1. I don't think that before this release, we have had an official band Racing In The Street between Brendan Byrne Arena, East Rutherford 06-Aug-1984 and St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa 22-Apr-2008. [Of course I could be wrong; I often am.) 24 years is a long time and a gap that needed to be filled.
  2. Tempe, for the full set audio. Although I have both films, I listen to music more than watch films and the Tempe setlist is awesome. Born To Run to start, Racing and Backstreets, Drive All Night. It's a clear knock-out in a fairly early round.
  3. I remember me and my daughter taking refuge in a bus shelter before the gates opened. Miserable weather that day. What I didn't realise at the time was that, compared to the next day in Manchester, Sunderland experienced a mere light shower.
  4. Sorry for your loss. Five years on and I still miss my mum and your post about your dad saving bits of Bruce news resonates with me. I was working when UK Ghost of Tom Joad tour tickets went on sale in January 1996. So my then 73 year old mum went at silly o’clock to queue at the Royal Albert Hall for several hours on a cold and snow-covered morning to get tickets for me. My parents supported me, and later my children, in so many ways and this moment of self-sacrifice was the most memorable with regards to my Bruce obsession. It’s clear from your post that you had a great relationship and you treasure the memories of kindnesses and support your dad gave you, especially when he didn’t share your (Bruce) interests but did so out of love. Be strong.
  5. And a couple of songs later we got The Promise. What a night!
  6. 2 new: Ghosts, Janey Needs A Shooter (Kinda new) 2 old: The Fever, Frankie 22B retired: Waiting' On A Sunny Day, all the encore songs - the called-for encore shake up is essential
  7. I can understand that those saying they won't be able to listen to the songs again but the intrinsic art will still be there in the songs. The art may be diminished in people's eyes (ears) if an individual song gets ludicrously extensive exposure through an advert - I can relate to this, most notably when Nickelback licensed 'Rockstar' to DFS and it was played to death over footage of hideously perfect families posing next to sofas, and for me this ruined the inherent listening pleasure. But that said, I reiterate that the art will still be art
  8. I was thinking of these two: I'll See You In My Dreams (9/11 20 Years Later America Remembers) Land Of Hope And Dreams President Biden's Inauguration The voice wobbles all over the place and I don't think its always deliberate.
  9. Thanks for posting. It has made me so much more positive as his voice sounds great, unlike the other two recent performances. I was worried that the power of the voice had gone but it is intact. Hallelujah!
  10. It's a difficult one. From hearing Bruce's voice at recent one-off events, I'm not sure he could carry a rock show. The best hope for a great album may be one where he embraces the Johnny Cash American Recordings approach.
  11. Waitin' On A Sunny Day - when I'm at a show and I hear that start. I cry " Oh, F no!"
  12. I think Elvis Costello had the most mature response to this: "It's how rock and roll works. You take the broken pieces of another thrill and make a brand new toy." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-57650176
