  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
  13. I want to be positive but I agree that the likelihood is that shows will be limited to the USA. As a UK person I'm still thinking that I may have seen Bruce for the last time - I'm happy to cross the pond again, or go to other European sites, but the different countries' vaccination proofs is likely to be a massive problem.
  14. The interesting thing about this message from Nugs is that they are sensitive to customer criticism about irregular releases and are distancing themselves from the approval mechanism. [In effect, "It's not our fault it's Bruce's!"] Sounds like they are as frustrated with Bruce Inc. as some of us are.
  15. I agree this is the logical tracklist - and I hope without linking chat between the songs as it would disrupt flow. Rosalita has to be from night 1. Otherwise Lynn Goldfishbowl would sue for royalties!
  16. I remember seeing it at the cinema (that word shows that it was a long time ago) and was the first time I heard the bruuuucing being discussed - "why are they booing?"
  17. Although very happy to get this, am I the only one seeing one negative: probably means no BIUSA box this Christmas.
  18. Version 6: Blu-Ray / DVD combined with audio cd's, bonus dvd / Blu Ray with extra footage and a coffee table book with an essay about the shows and unreleased pictures. And a CAKE!
  19. This No Surrender is fantastic and I've always thought the acoustic version far superior to the electric - I've seen him do the electric version more than 20 times but never the acoustic I'm not complaining though as I've attended a lot of shows and got 99% of my bucket list songs. Acoustic closing numbers that stand out for me are the 2013 Irish This Hard Land citied by Buddhabone and If I Should Fall Behind from Leeds also in 2013. The singing here is so powerful that even the drunken idiots shouting "we love you Bruce" etc, couldn't hide the beauty of the performance.
  20. I think that performance of Drift Away is one of the greatest things ever done. You were truly blessed.
  21. It's crap. As soon as Berkeley was released, Nugs had a target date for the next one. It's the same for any monthly issue. Monthly magazines don't just say "we're still working on it" when the deadline is reached. But whether it is Nugs or Landau and co, I don't know.
