I didn't post the film review in this thread, I'm becoming careless.

Save Your Love was a highlight that night - and that is only amplified on playback by the venue; Australian crowds are notoriously quiet mid-song, and the new Perth Arena has spot on acoustics, so the reverb on Suzie's violin elevates this song to something very special.  Great review!

A real shame that the song has only had 5 outings since. Helluva song. Cheers for reading!

Regarding Sherry Darling:
 

 

So it was a mixing issue for Jake in the intro. That's good to know! 

Also funny to watch that and not really notice the quality of Bruce's vocals. Goes to show that when you can see what's going on onstage, the stuff that's so important on these downloads isn't the be all and end all.

Hopefully these are keeping any of you who are also stuck in Lockdown entertained.

Yeah these 2014 shows have some fantastic artwork. The 2016 shows too, tbh. 

I'm looking forward to someday hopefully being able to scroll down the Live Downloads - Archive Series category on the site and seeing them all there, hahaha.

*PSA: If by chance you're interested in downloading this show after reading this review, remember the 25% off deal only works on the Nugs site - not the Live Bruce site that I always link to at the bottom. That said, enjoy! :)

This show wasn't released as a Live Download, and it's unlikely to be doing the rounds as Archive Series release, but why is that the case?

Check out my newest E Street Review to find out exactly what the crack is with Melbourne #2 - February 16th, 2014 ;)

And thanks again to @lilbud for providing the custom artwork. He's got a knack for it!

Here's a new High Hopes Tour review, one of my favourites from 2014.

https://cantfindtickets.wordpress.com/2020/12/16/bruce-springsteen-live-downloads-review-february-19th-2014-sydney-au/

I'll be back to revisiting 2014 in the New Year with a review of Hunter Valley! Before then will (hopefully) be a Christmas Archive and (certainly) my annual New Year's Day post for The Possibilities of 2021 (and the Series' Top 10 songs of 2020)!

And here's December's initial Archive release too:

This will be quite the challenge, has been a great year for the archive series

It really has been a great year, and I'll be mentioning within the post just how many amazing song performances have been released. 

I've had the top 10 essentially set in stone for a while now, although Hammersmith and the inevitable Christmas bonus will probably throw a spanner in the works when I do my final play through.
