Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand for the playing of our national anthem.

What a band these guys are.

And I don’t believe in God, but if there is one or multiple, may Roy Bittan be blessed. He’s got to be one of my favourite musicians ever.

Perfect.  Even with the raggedy voice. He looked pretty great too.

Can I say it? ... I was there :wub:

It's ok for men to cry while listening to a couple tunes and this is one of them.

It was an amazing day. My picture is taken from that day.

I've said it before and I 'll say it again - I just love this version of Racing and so glad it is available online again  for everyone to enjoy. 

Just beautiful and that look on Nils face just about sums it all up!

Not even Bruce's crappy voice and a frail Clarence can prevent Racing from being anything but fantastic.

 

That said, i've been re-watching this show despite having the blu ray somewhere in my collection.  What a travesty that the 3 modern day Bruce/ E Street Band live dvds are all sub-par one way or the other.  The chopped NYC; the poorly mixed Barca and this release.   The band were on their knees during this tour - Clarence looks like he's going to topple over at any moment.  Touring on the back of a crappy album doesn't help either.  Add to that those shocking cover songs....  You're one of the very best songwriters, with a  back catalogue that's full of quality and yet a significant percentage of the setlist is cover versions...

 

Release a bells and whistles Wrecking Ball tour dvd to redress the balance please Bruce.

There is allready one: the BUSA album performance that came with High Hopes.

Of course this is not what you meant.

I wish my daughter and I were there, as we would actually be "ALIVE" unlike the first several rows next to the stage.
