NEW ARCHIVE DOWNLOAD: Helsinki 2012

posted May 23, 2017, 7:08 PM by Brandon Thompson

It only makes sense to release Bruce's longest show ever in pristine quality right? Welp, that's what the folks over at live.brucespringsteen.net decided today as they officially released the record setting show. Bruce was wrapping up his European summer leg of the 2012 Wrecking Ball tour when he decided that he and the band would play for over four hours that night with some tour premiers making their debuts as well. A pretty good addition to the archive series although, I'm personally still waiting and longing for a Rising tour show to come out. The good news? This is a great show to have as an official release and it seems that they are picking up steam with the St. Louis 2008 show coming last month. Let's hope they keep up the momentum and keep releasing these archive shows.

"Our goal with this exhibition is to define the career of Bruce Springsteen in an entirely new light, as captured by these six incredible photographers," said Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. "Each of these photographers was able to artfully document Bruce's world, at different stages in his career. We are honored to partner with each of them in order to help tell the story of one of the most important figures in American music."

In addition to the photographs of Springsteen off-stage, four live performance photographs, shot by Barry Schneier, are also featured. These photos were shot during the now famous Springsteen concert at Harvard Square Theater where famed Rolling Stone music journalist Jon Landau proclaimed, “I have seen the future of rock and roll, and its name is Bruce Springsteen.”

The Photographers

Danny Clinch (photo at top of press release) has shot and filmed a wide range of artists, from Johnny Cash to Tupac Shakur, from Bjork to Bruce Springsteen. His work has appeared on hundreds of album covers and publications like Vanity Fair, Spin, Rolling Stone, GQ, Esquire, and more.  


Ed Gallucci's (photo to left) portraits of musicians and celebrities have been published in Crawdaddy, Rolling Stone, Playboy and Penthouse, and his editorial photographs have appeared in Business Week, Fortune, US News & World Report, Discover, New York Magazine, as well as on more than 40 covers of Newsweek.        

Eric Meola's graphic use of color has informed his photographs and his distinguished career for more than four decades. An exhibition in England of his photographs of Bruce Springsteen coincided with his publication of his book Born to Run: The Unseen Photos, and his currently working on a book titled Tornado Alley about his most recent passion, storm chasing.

In the seventies, Barry Schneier captured many musicians, both established and up-and-coming, such as Patti Smith, Van Morrison and Bonnie Raitt, as a photographer for local promoters. Today many of his work is housed in collections across the country including Los Angeles' Paramount Pictures, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The GRAMMY Museum and The New England Folk Music Archives.


Frank Stefanko (photo to left) is a fine art photographer whosework graces the album covers of Bruce Springsteens' Darkness on 

the Edge of Town and The River, Southside Johnny's Hearts of Stone, and Patti Smith's The Arista Years 1975/2000 box set cover. Stefanko's photographs also appear in Bruce Springsteen's Live 75/85, Greatest Hits, Tracks, and The Essential Bruce Springsteen. He is the author of the book Days of Hope and Dream: an Intimate Portrait of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith: American Artist.

The younger sister of Bruce Springsteen, Pamela Springsteen's photographs of her brother can be seen through the Mojave Desert and along the famous Route 66.  Her images of Keith Richards, Neil Young, Tom Hanks to name a few have appeared in such publications as Spin Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Musician among others.
