  1. This week's From the Vault series celebrates "The Boss," 1999 Inductee Bruce Springsteen. His music epitomized the American dream and you can head to our website for exclusive video content, speeches, performances and more. As one of the artists who has been a part of Induction Ceremonies from the earliest years, Springsteen fans will find new performances and more to enjoy: https://www.rockhall.com/inductees/bruce-springsteen
  2. Powerful performance here from Tampa, FL 03/23/12
  3. That and the Glory Days doc in support of the Live Boxset
  4. Some explanations by the man himself https://www.backstreets.com/riverinterview.html Backstreets: So this tour comes as quite a surprise! Springsteen: It was a surprise. It was a surprise to us, too, you know? We were kind of heading on a slightly different path — I had some new music, which was a little more of a solo record. I thought that I'd be out on that next. But then the box set came out, and we started to fool around with the idea of playing maybe a show… then, well, maybe two shows… and that turned into a short leg that we have going here in the States. It's a chance to let people experience the record start to finish, which we've only played once before. Of course every time a tour ends, there are always fans wondering if that's the last time we'll see the band, so it's exciting that we get another chapter. Do you know what the lineup will be this time? It's just the original post-[reunion] setup. No horn section, no singers? Yeah. So that should be fun. It was the kind of thing where I looked at it and decided, well, I have this project that I like a lot, but it's probably going to involve me playing by myself. And I figured if I get into that, it could be quite a while before the band ends up touring again. So having this little respite in there is gonna be a nice thing — it gives us a chance to get out there again before it ends up being a real long span. What inspired you to hit the road for this one? It was five years ago, almost to the day, that you were at the carousel in Asbury Park for the Promise show there, but that was a one-off. You've had the Born to Run box, and then the Darkness box... is there something about the River box that makes you want to go out and play it? The idea of touring was just, well gee, we have this big project, these projects take a long time to put together, and what is the way to get it the most attention, and make it the most exciting? And that's obviously: well, we could play! It's been long enough since we've played that that tasted pretty good. These days we don't have to go out and play 150 shows every time the band comes together. You can go out and play 20 shows, if you have something to do — or if you just feel like it. We're no longer bound by the previous rules of, "You've gotta have a record, then you've gotta go out and tour for two years.…" I don't think we have to do that anymore at this point. Though I'm sure we'll do it in the future.
  5. Jim Marchese photo, Frankfurt April 1981. Looks like the venue in Live booklet photo.
  6. Any info on the setlist played on July 5th 1973? That is the same day I was born. Thanks in advance, Frank
  7. https://youtu.be/vd0hn2gYhwM Full show. Bruce part starts at 23 mins.
  8. Norton knows it well.."there's stars and there's legends"...Norton does his best to make them at ease. He's done this with Deniro over the last couple of seasons. Chat shows are not exactly Bruce or Bob's thing. Norton was clearly in awe of Bruce and knew he was in the presence of greatness, what a coup for Norton. Enjoyed it.
  9. Big month for Bruce, hoping for Vets Show or Winterland
  10. Thinking of Dylan's 'Love and Theft' reading this post.
  11. Here in Ireland a great irish DJ and massive Bruce fan John Creedon had WS as album of the week, playing all the tracks. On Tuesday he finished the show with Western Stars into Backstreets...what a pairing...remember all the movies, brilliant. Worth checking out his show: https://www.rte.ie/radio1/john-creedon/programmes/2019/0617/1055912-john-creedon-monday-17-june-2019/?clipid=103137774#103137774
  12. 'Sleepy Joe's Cafe' reminds me of 'Just One Kiss' by Beau Jocque & The Zydeco Hi-Rollers. That track was on Bruce's 'Walk-in' playlist awhile back.
  13. NPR Music as a nice companion playlist up. Review here: https://www.npr.org/2019/06/13/731719436/all-he-wanted-was-to-be-free-where-bruce-springsteens-western-stars-came-from?t=1560424176605
  14. Love both songs so far. The man is almost 70 and still making good music. Glad he's doing different things now, those simple lyrics and melodies are probably alot harder to write than we think. Dylan explains repeating the past in this clip, 30 seconds in, which I think applies to Bruce aswell.
