We knew this one would be coming eventually and now it's here. The final performance from the late Danny Federici is now available to purchase at live.brucespringsteen.net. This will be the second Magic tour show that has been mixed and released by Springsteen's camp. However, many fans were clamoring to have this specific show officially released and now that day has come. We're still waiting on a Rising tour show (cough, cough).

Bruce Springsteen To Release "The Album Collection Volume 2" On May 18

posted Mar 29, 2018, 1:58 PM by Brandon Thompson

Bruce Springsteen will be releasing his second album collection set in just a couple short months. Springsteen's camp announced today that the album collection would span Springsteen's music from 1987-1996 with a variety of different records included. The included records will be: 

  • Tunnel Of Love (1987)
  • Chimes Of Freedom (1988)
  • Human Touch (1992)
  • Lucky Town (1992)
  • In Concert/MTV Unplugged (1993)
  • The Ghost Of Tom Joad (1995)
  • Blood Brothers (1996)
Fans should know that unlike the first volume collection, this box set will only be available in digital and vinyl formats. Meaning that there will be no physical CD version of this release. In order to get better sounding records, Springsteen's camp noted that both Tunnel of Love and Human Touch will be released as double vinyl in this box set. Release date for the box set is May 18 so Springsteen fans clamoring for these vinyls won't have to wait all that long. 



Bruce Springsteen Extends Broadway Show Into December 2018

posted Mar 21, 2018, 8:14 AM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Mar 21, 2018, 8:23 AM ]

Bruce Springsteen has announced that he will be extending his historic Broadway show into December 2018. Springsteen's camp has also announced that this will be the final run of shows for Broadway. This will add 81 shows, to the previously announced dates, from July 10, 2018 to December 15, 2018. Tickets for the final run of shows will go on sale on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 11:00AM. 

As with the last run of shows, fans will not be able to register for the Verified fan process. If you registered during the first two announcements, you do not need to do anything. Ticketmaster will send out e-mails on Monday, March 26 with more information for fans who have registered previously. Good luck! 

Interesting to note that Springsteen's camp specifically wrote that these will be the last announced "New York City shows." There have been rumors that The Boss may be looking to take this show overseas to London. We'll of course post any updates here if those shows happen to be announced. But for now, Springsteen is in New York until December.

Announcing The 2018 Bruce Springsteen Song Tournament

posted Mar 12, 2018, 2:08 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Apr 9, 2018, 4:21 PM ]

We had a ton of fun doing a Bruce Springsteen song tournament last March, that we decided to do an even bigger one this year for 2018! This time the category is rare Springsteen songs. We know, "rare" is subjective to each individual person but we compiled a list of songs that are not played often, to outtakes, to songs that were never officially released. Be sure to vote everyday on our Twitter page to see your favorite "rare" songs go through to the next round. The matchups were set randomly by the computer. You can follow our bracket by clicking the red link listed below.

NEW ARCHIVE RELEASE: New Jersey 1993

posted Jan 5, 2018, 7:20 AM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Jan 5, 2018, 9:11 AM ]

UPDATE: Now available at live.brucespringsteen.net

The first "other band" official archive release and the first archive release of 2018! The information was leaked earlier on Springsteen's social media pages and was quickly deleted. However, you should be able to buy this show later today on Springsteen's archive show website (live.brucespringsteen.net). Some familiar names pop up throughout the show including E Street Band members: Patti Scialfa, Steven Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Soozie Tyrell, and Clarence Clemons. With special guest appearances by Joe Ely and the Miami Horns. It is worth nothing that this performance was not actually during the Human Touch/Lucky Town tour but took place shortly thereafter as a benefit show for the food bank in New Jersey.

 There is one tour that instantly comes to mind that has not been supported thus far by the archive release series and that of course is The Rising tour. I would love to have a near perfect sounding show from this tour but, I continue to wait and pray that it's represented next month. In the meantime, this is a a pretty good release (pending sound quality of course).

Santa came to town early folks! A new archive release dropped today for a nice Christmas surprise and it's a good one...Passaic 1978!
