  1. Listening to it on Spotify now. I’m going to see the film on Monday but I’m ok listening to it now. I was actually going to create a Spotify playlist of what could be a setlist had Bruce toured with this.

    The vocals are rougher, which was expected and the piano is more prominent, which makes it sound a bit more E-Streety. Can’t wait to see it on the big screen!

    Western Stars has taken on a whole new meaning to me after seeing the film.  I never really associated much of it with Bruce's own family/life/loves (maybe two or three songs like The Stuntman, Hello Sunshine, Sundown).  I still think he is 'in character' for a lot of the songs, but it's interesting to hear this interview and what he has to say about it. I can definitely say that Stones has a very personal message in it after seeing the way it's performed.  I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet.

    @Tom-Joad, where did you find this?

    It just popped up on YouTube as a suggested video.

    The Promise

    “Well my daddy taught me how to walk quiet

    And how to make my peace with the Past

    And I learned real good to tighten up inside

    And I don’t say nothing unless I’m asked”

    Those are among my favourite Bruce lines of all time.

    That's a good point regarding TR... it does appear to be a genuine in the moment choice to play one more song based on the crowd response. Which is what a true encore always was in a live performance, not a pre planned set listed part of the show

    Precisely. It was my first show and I had lost all hope that he was going to play it. That made it all the more special.

  6. My first Bruce show. Drove for a day, spent the night outside and got to be within arm’s reach of the stage.

    Maybe I’m biased, but I have no problem with the audio on this. I have no problem with anything about this show and, music-wise, it may very well have been the high point of my life. Thunder Road at the end was a true encore and I was in a state of absolute bliss and exhaustion as they played it.

    San Junipero, White Bear and Shut Up And Dance are three that spring to mind that kept me gripped from start to finish.  Probably my least favourite was the Waldo one, and there was one about soldiers that I didn't enjoy much.

    White Bear was the first one I ever saw. I just stumbled upon it on TV when no one hadn’t ever heard of Black Mirror and I didn’t know what I was watching but I was absolutely glued to the TV screen.
