Maybe it’ll be late today. 
James Taylor always has a Friday surprise and last week his was a couple hours late.

Who is James Taylor? (sorry..)

Another reason for the late release of an archive: not stepping on the announcement of his return to Broadway. Not that I think an archive release would DO that, but I've worked in entertainment. It's how PR folks think sometimes...

(IF) Bruce or his 'people' are sitting around saying

'we better hold of on this months archive release because we are announcing another money grab on Broadway'

then they need a reality check. 

He no longer has the pull for it to make any difference.

Neither last Friday, nor today, would have interfered with the Broadway announcement in any way. The delay is clearly nothing to do with Broadway.

If it’s still in the oven then this leaked artwork for the new archive seems to be genuine.

I wouldn't bother buying the CD version:

Unlikely it seems, but all this would be different with an unannounced release (not on a Friday).

A sudden surprise release, out of the blue.

Nugs said release “may be” cancelled.

I messaged them to see what’s going on. So strange for them to be hush hush as to it coming today or not.

yeah, it actually kinda weird the complete and total radio silence.

Usually we'd get some form of communication from Backstreets or Nugs, but it seems that either everyone is in the dark or something happened very last minute. 

But like: Jim Rotolo said nothing and just played a TOL show as if nothing was unusual, nothing on any of the socials either.

I wonder if it’ll be something like Tuesday or Wednesday.

I just assume "delay" actually means "next friday"

I doubt we'll get a release before next wednesday

Wednesday the new single of The Killers with Springsteen will drop so I’m really curious if they release a live archive next week.

Really bizarre that they would even consider moving an archive show to the side if any other release is due. They probably only sell about 2,000 a show. And that would drop to about 1,995 if it clashed with any other kind of release.

From memory, a couple of releases were moved to avoid clashing with Sony announcements / releases from Western Stars. Clearly there was some sort of pecking order in place.

However, those were Bruce's own releases, not a guest appearance.

Wait you mean no live release for the month of June? 

It seems pretty clear they must have hit a big hitch of some sort with whatever was intended to be released this month.
