The River tour was my first show, Fall of 1980 in the dump that jumps. I was 12 years old and just purchased my first Van Halen records. My Mom had a fight with her boyfriend. So off I went with her. 

Seriously, don't open the spoiler if you want to be surprised on Friday.  

I'm sad.  Also, had a car crash today on my way home... slid down an icy road, straight into the back of a parked car.  So all round not very pleasing day.

You forgot:

Europe 1981 (continent not U.K.) [also Canada/U.S.A. early 1981 but maybe unlikely shows from that leg were recorded].

2002; but we all know about the technical problemes of The Rising Tour.

Early BUSA shows (pre-New Jersey), like the two famous Alpine Valley shows; Europe 1985 (Milano!).

Spring 1976; Fall 1976; 1995; Europe 1992; Europe 1993; U.S.A. first leg 2005; Europe 2005; Europe 2007; Europe 2008; Europe 2009.

In general: more 'regular' shows instead of all those 'special' shows which Bruce himself seems to like so much. (Not really to complain about that recently, with Nassau 2009 and Detroit 1988).

Well of your list I'm agree with some 1976....is the only I really would add in my list. 

The others...of course would be great to have in our list...but I wouldn't put them as "a must have".

And the same as Philly 2005...for me the best 2 concerts of the tour....but we have got some of the good shows from this tour.

Has anyone mentioned the Vietnam Veterans show from August 1981?

It's a very good show and I'm sure everyone would thoroughly enjoy it.

Fingers crossed then.

I think they accidentally filed it under Wembley 2002 and now they can't find either of them

Just realized We have nothing from the old giants stadium (1985, 2003, 2008)

Giants Stadium 1985 will -probably- come in time, at least the shows which were 'source concerts'  for Live 1975-85.

My list was indeed somewhat exhaustive...   From your list I would still swap Rising 2003 last leg for a 2002 show.

But that's just my personal preference for solid shows with great performances of the standard set list to shows with rarities and 'special guests'. Of course you can walk the 'middle ground' in this; as the setlists of the European 2003 shows did, with many variations in the setlist from night to night (especially when there were two shows at the some venue), but with most of the basic Rising setlist still intact and not quite the rarities-fest that was the last U.S.A. leg.

And maybe you underestimate the importance of the 1981 European Tour on the continent, also for Bruce and the band themselves.

it'll probably be released but i don't see Nugs give us this one.. personally i expect a strong show from 2006 or one of the best ESB show unreleased yet.. Nassau 2009 was great last month but, i don't know, i need more rock eletric  music, even if in future, Copenhagen 2005 is REALLY REALLY great (and better than Boston?)

btw (it's a call) if they can release the complete with it, i think i will be the best D&D release of the serie

If they manage to keep these releases going throughout the current restrictions, I'll be happy with whatever they release.

I hope for a 1976 release still, or a BTR tour one, or a late '74 one - or one from summer of 1981 could be great (any and all need to be mixed well of course).

But I don't want a 1974 one; I'd prefer it to a solo one, or, God knows, a Seeger Sessions Band one (or the Other Band - No MORE, please!)

but I was listening to my boot Let The Four Winds Blow on Godfather,

and man, I could not get into it or enjoy it. I agree, it's part of Bruce's history and important that way, but I didn't like it much.

I then listened to Incident In Akron from 1975 and MAN it felt SO much better, and more natural to the Bruce sound or E Street Sound, that I love best.

Anyway just my 2 cents, my personal taste.

Also regarding neglected Bruce history with shows, I would greatly prefer a Bruce Springsteen Band show or a Steel Mill one (note: there IS a multi-track of a Bruce Springsteen Band show, or was, according to Brucebase; however since I read that maybe a couple years ago, I don't exactly know the date or venue!)

Hope it's a great one, whatever it is. (and a band one, no more solo shows PLEASE - not til you get to all these missing or greatly neglected years, and that includes 1974, even if it ain't my favorite Bruce period.

It’s always nice when the first Friday happens to be the 1st day of the month. My hope is an early Magic tour show like Datchforum Milano November 2007 and not just because I was there.

If the recording can capture even a slight semblance of the audience noise that night (the bootlegs are off the scale insane) then it would be a special release. The full band Incident had a stunning Bruce guitar outro. And Reason to believe was bedlam on that GA arena floor.

There was an even better audience source which surfaced a few years later than the earlier crystal cat and godfather source. The new audio source was used to dub the audio for this full show video:
