Was thinking the same. But maybe in London/Paris in lieu of NYC.

Live performances of the Western Stars songs, plenty of High Desert scenery, his voice sounds great. That's enough to satisfy me right there.

is this him playing the album live accompanied with a short movie? Are there actual actors in the movie or is it him acting?

I read it as being live performances of the songs, with Bruce telling a story in between

I don’t think that would happen, but I actually think that would be really interesting.  I’d love it.

I don’t know if I’m excited or worried about this. I really like the album and I don’t want this to subtract from it the way the Hunter of Invisible Game vídeo did...

the best thing about the hunter video ...

ok the 2nd best thing about the hunter video was it was a complete gift 

it cost none of us nothing more than an internet  connection and a wee bit of data 

and i don't know anything about video production but i bet that thing cost a pretty penny to make

That’s certainly a lot better than what I was imagining.

like the D&D bonus disk

that would be sweet 

im kinda hoping for videos of songs linked together into a story with dialogue  kind of like the im on fire video crossed with the hunter short film with Bruce playing the central characters with his shirt off and he's wet and sweaty 

something for every one

Not sure about actors but it’s been confirmed that a prop is being used, and it’s definitely the Nassau 80 piano taken out of cold storage for this film.

True.  And I’d personally much rather an E Street album followed by a tour, first!  I also keep forgetting we ain’t that young anymore. :D

when did tracks come out before the reunion?

mind you that tour didn't have a new album behind it 

i just assumed it would be great to hear some of these hopefully soon to be officially released outtakes alongside the WS tracks on an ESB tour ...alongside the new ESB album

well DITD and Sunny day will have to be scaled back to nearer their album length to fit everything in

but no shortening of Kitty or Prove it 

 

i see your point Steve

From what I've read, aye, it was all meant to take place in one day and open up with an acoustic Thunder Road and close with the full band version. 

Other concept records that immediately spring to mind are:

Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars - David Bowie

American Idiot - Green Day

Tommy - The Who

Quadrophenia - The Who

Welcome To My Nightmare/Brutal Planet/Dragontown/Along Came A Spider/and probably more that escape me now - Alice Cooper

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino - Arctic Monkeys

Brilliant.  There are a couple more, but kudos for bringing Alice out into the darkness.
