You do have to aswer three questions and explain why you should be selected, so make it a good story! To help you out, here is how I would answer the questions (cough, cough) if I were you: Thunder Road, The Ties That Bind, 10 Years of Satellite Radio.

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!

NEW ARCHIVE RELEASE: New Orleans 2006

posted Dec 1, 2017, 12:16 PM by Brandon Thompson

For December's archive series release, we go back to 2006 during the Seeger Sessions tour. However, this isn't any Seeger Sessions show, it's from the New Orleans JazzFest, which Springsteen himself has said was one of his more memorable shows of all time. Only eight months prior to this show, New Orleans and Louisiana was hit incredibly hard with Hurricane Katrina which is still one of the deadliest and most destructive hurricanes in American history. The area was hit so badly that this festival almost didn't take place due to the conditions of the fairgrounds in which the festival was performed. This show also served as the official opening show of the Seeger Sessions tour. You can purchase this show by going to live.brucespringsteen.net.

Setlist: 
O Mary Don't You Weep
John Henry 
Johnny 99
Old Dan Tucker 
Eyes on the Prize 
Jesse James 
My Oklahoma Home
Mrs. McGrath 
How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?
Jacob's Ladder
We Shall Overcome 
Open All Night
Pay Me My Money Down 
My City of Ruins 
Buffalo Gals 
You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)
When The Saints Go Marching In



BREAKING: Springsteen on Broadway Extended Through June 2018

posted Nov 27, 2017, 2:10 PM by Brandon Thompson

The rumors were true...Bruce Springsteen has extended his Broadway run through June 2018. One thing to note, due to an overwhelming demand for tickets to these shows, fans will NOT need to sign up for the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program again. Fans who received standby notifications or who received codes but did not purchase tickets, are eligible to receive a on-sale code this time around. Again, you do not need to sign up anymore for the verified fan system to have a chance to purchase these tickets for the extended run. Good luck to all Springsteen fans! 

PRESS RELEASE

Springsteen on Broadway announced today that its 16-week sold-out series of performances at Jujamcyn's Walter Kerr Theatre will be extended, with additional shows now set for February 28th through June 30th, 2018.

Springsteen On Broadway began previews on October 3rd, 2017 and officially opened October 12th. By the end of his previously announced Broadway dates on February 3rd, Bruce Springsteen will have performed 80 shows at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street).

Due to overwhelming participation in the original Onsale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan®, there will be no additional registration for this extension. Fans who previously registered and were verified but placed on Standby and did not receive a code, and fans who received a code but were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets will be contacted by Ticketmaster with further information about the added shows.

  • "As portraits of artists go, there may never have been anything as real — and beautiful — on Broadway." - New York Times
  • “An intimate triumph… one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory." - Rolling Stone
  • "It’s elegant, it’s austere, it’s moving… Springsteen belongs on Broadway.” - Washington Post
  • "An earnest meditation on his life and work... delivered by a diligent and practiced showman." - New Yorker
  • “Hilarious, heartbreaking… showcases the true breadth of his talents.” - Entertainment Weekly
  • “Thrilling… a model of finely chiseled simplicity, by turns contemplative, moving and joyous." - The Hollywood Reporter

A digital lottery will continue to operate through the extension for fans interested in purchasing tickets after the December 19th on-sale.  For details, visit luckyseat.com.

New Archive Release: End Of The Reunion Tour - New York, NY

posted Oct 6, 2017, 12:28 PM by Brandon Thompson

It's the first Friday in October and that means we get a new Springsteen live archive release! This time the Reunion tour gets the proper treatment and none other than the final show of the tour at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City. Some highlights from this show include an incredible version and show closer of "Blood Brothers" as well as an early debut of "Further On (Up The Road)" which of course would appear on Springsteen's next album at the time, The Rising. Based on the samples that are on live.brucespringsteen.net, the show sounds great as usual. This makes for a pretty decent release but I'm personally still craving a Rising tour show in this quality. Maybe in November. In the meantime, enjoy Springsteen fans.
