The reviewer, who a few weeks ago trashed the title track, calls the album Bruce's best since The River. "It consists of 15 brutally strong tracks, 15 human destinies with September 11 as the common denominator", the reviewer.... Read more

No one probably doubted that Los Angeles would be included in the upcoming tour itinerary, but it will probably come as a surprise to many that the show (or shows) appear to be planned for the Great Western Forum in Inglewood where Bruce, to our knowledge, hasn't played since 1978.

By Karsten S. Andersen
For several weeks there has been talk of one or more warm-up shows in Asbury Park before the real tour kicks in. The first concrete bit of information can now be found on the website of LA based radio station, Star 98.7. There you can win a trip for two people to Asbury Park to see an alleged show on July 26. Apparently, this is mostly for LA residents, but if there's any truth to this, other radio stations in the US, and perhaps around the world, will probably soon join in and offer up ticket....

Sony representatives at at least one of last night's listening parties informed the fans that the upcoming tour would begin with single night stands in selected cities in the US, and that later on more shows in 3000 seat theatre-like venues would be added.

According to the rumors, the tour will kick off in Boston on August 9 and will continue through September, including a birthday show in New Jersey.
