You have to remember a lot of folks here are now fans of the 70s era California sound with sweeping orchestral arrangements. This might not be for them.

Oh coz we can't be fans of both, or it's an either/or.  Got it.

Bit surprised by this I gotta say! The live album of the Soulfire tour is one of my favorite albums of the last decade.

I watched most of the show, then left when Bruce was done (had to walk the dog). 

Did anyone else wish they’d kept the camera on Bruce when he was singing, rather than keep going back to the field and the band?  He didn’t have that many lines, so he should have been the focus when it was his turn.

You can be whatever you want. Like Dropkick Murphys and the crap he put out last summer if you like. That’s up to you.

I thought they did that because it didn’t look great with him reading the lyrics and not looking at the camera. Who knows?

That said, I thought he sounded good. It’s good to hear him rock a bit.

I wasnt 100 percent sure the video was perfectly synced so they cut away...maybe ...Wanted Badlands but was thrilled to hear Bruce and Dropkick do the song that Bruce closed with every night from 2007-2009....Also loved the tour of Fenway at the beginning ..... My euro friends please feel free to substitute your favorite iconic footie stadium ..... But i certainly appreciated the effort .....

Oh silly me, I thought you were implying if we loved the orchestra music last summer we can't like some DMs.  

Glad you're above that, 'tucky.

Of course. Like whatever you want.

That said, I would guess many that like the yacht rock he turned to last summer wouldn’t be big fans of Irish punk.

A bunch of fake Irish blokes playing a faux irish jig with a self isolating septuagenerian- how lovely.  

 

Did he win a competition?

Well, that was different! Thanks for posting, Keith (I only watched the Bruce bit ;)).

That has got to be one of the weirdest performances of Bruce's career, but they pulled it off really well, I think. I loved "Rose Tattoo". But as great as it was, I hope that won't be how we have to experience live music for too long.

As a fan of the DKM i was very excited to have a friday night concert .... But when they went to the wide shot of the deserted stadium it was sad ....

Why yes ..I am a sucker for the Bagpipes ...why do you ask ?

I really guess i have no way of substantiating this ...But i always thought Bruce became a fan through his son who attended Boston College.

I just saw the Rose Tattoo clip. Bruce sounded good - the No.20 lad, not so much.
