PRAISE ABOUNDS FOR 'WE SHALL OVERCOME: THE SEEGER SESSIONS' ALBUM AND TOUR
Bruce Springsteen has confirmed 26 European concerts with the 17-piece Seeger Sessions Band following a hugely successful mini-tour of only ten European shows this spring, which sold out in minutes.
Fans and critics alike have lavished praise upon the recording 'We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions,' which has gone top five in the U.S. and twelve other countries; and the tour which has accompanied it. The album has been certified Gold or Platinum in ten countries, including Gold status in the U.S. Here's what the critics are saying about 'We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions':
"Vibrant and exuberant"
- USA Today
"The album taps back into what Springsteen does best: making music that's as grand and mythopoetic as the country itself."
- Entertainment Weekly
Here's what we're reading about Springsteen's tour with the Seeger Sessions Band:
"Sometime, somewhere, a more dramatic and exhilarating confluence of music with moment may have existed... But in nearly 40 years of concert-going, I haven't witnessed one."
- The Los Angeles Times
"It was the best live show I've seen in at least five years. (And I've seen a few.)"
- The Washington Post
"It's been an astonishingly rich evening."
- The Independent (UK)
"Springsteen and the Seeger Session band were an inspiring triumph."
