Someone please send me this full show on DVD, i will pay you a million pounds 

Haha :D. I’d certainly pay at least a tenner. By way of coincidence, I posted my (admittedly terrible) cover of Tunnel of Love yesterday. It’s here for your listening ‘pleasure’.

People lining up ready to hand their hard earned cash over for this stuff, while Thom Zimny sits in his room full of vintage Bruce footage reels, cackling maniacally, pondering which little snippets he can show to the next exclusive audience of 200 people in AP.

Makes sense to me...

Busy listening now @wolfinthepines and I like it.... Thumbs up from me mate.

*EDIT*

When the track finished it went straight into your cover of My Beautiful Reward. Really nice!

The Tunnel of Love Express tour was a unique tour in Bruce's career. The whole stage presentation with props being used, the band members all changing positions on the stage, Patti becoming more and more the focus on stage as her and Bruce became closer, and an almost Vegas like theme.

Strong rumours were that the band did not enjoy the tour, and Garry Tallent was quoted later on saying "It just wasn't us". Personally I thought it was an entertaining experience although at times a bit cringeworthy, and in hindsight it might have been better for it to have been a solo tour rather than another full-scale onslaught with the E Street Band so soon after the Born in the USA juggernaut. I think when the tour ended with Bruce and Patti very much an item, and the tensions in the band...you can see why Bruce probably felt it was time to bring it to an end, at least for a while. I'm not sure if it was the right decision but it's understandable given what was going on at the time.

Just imagine if Bruce did the “Tunnel Of Love” tour solo, 

Was original idea not for a solo tour, but a 'duo tour' with only Bruce and Nils?

Well the “Devils And Dust” tour was a duo of Bruce and Alan Fitzgerald, so anything goes...

And for the D & D tour original plan was to tour as a trio (guitar-bass-drums).

It was reported in Rolling Stone in early '88 that Bruce was considering a tour of theaters with "a small combo".
