New Archive Release: "The Spectrum Will Live Forever..." - Philadelphia October 20, 2009

posted Jul 14, 2017, 7:03 PM by Brandon Thompson

Ok, I'm particularly excited about this archive release as I was personally in attendance at this show and what a show it was. This was Springsteen's last performance at the legendary Spectrum. This was the second show Springsteen show I saw at this venue and looking back, I can't tell you how much I miss that place. I was really too young at the time to appreciate a venue like the Spectrum, where no matter where you sat, you were a part of the entertainment. Everything felt like it was just right there. It's hard to really explain but those Philadelphia natives and people who saw concerts there know exactly what I mean. Anyway, this was a great show and it started off with a huge bang as Bruce opened with "The Price You Pay." Which at the time, was a HUGE deal as the song was not performed live since 1981. This was also the show that debuted "Higher and Higher," which would later become a staple through the remainder of the tour. The show had a lot of passion and energy, along with a full performance of the "Born In The U.S.A." album. So it really has everything for any Springsteen fans, both the hits and rarities. 

Brad Sterling, who works at the site who mixes the archive shows, also tweeted an interesting tweet for those of you who want older shows to be released. "Before we drive into the @springsteen archives we wanted to get this out..." Sounds like we're in for some older shows next. 


More Than One Thousand Bruce Fans Sing No Surrender

posted Jul 11, 2017, 4:47 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Jul 11, 2017, 4:53 PM ]

This is a pretty cool video to check out. More than a thousands Springsteen fans got together in Spain to perform "No Surrender" from the Born In The U.S.A. album. This is pretty similar to the viral video of fans singing The Foo FIghters' "Learn To Fly," but this time it's got a Springsteen song as the subject. Last year, Matthew Aucoin, stole one of the Philadelphia shows as he played the same song with The Boss (photo below), and was for sure one of the many highlights from The River Tour 2016. Be sure to check out the pretty cool video of our friends over in Spain jammin' out below. 

 

Springsteen Joins Steve Van Zandt Again On Stage This Weekend

posted May 29, 2017, 2:16 PM by Brandon Thompson

First of all, I apologize this is going up a little later than I would like it to. I was up in the Northern Pennsylvania for Memorial Day weekend and of course forgot my laptop. 

However, Bruce Springsteen surprise appearance lightning struck again at a Steve Van Zandt concert this past Saturday in Red Bank, NJ. Right before Springsteen took the stage to join Little Steven, a fellow E Street Band member, Steve joked around stating that he was going to bring up a friend who is currently out of work (see video below). Let's just hope that his friend is not out of work for a prolonged period of time. Springsteen appears and stays on stage to perform four songs. One of those four songs was a surprise for people in attendance when the band broke into Springsteen's own "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out." Be sure to check out the video below are from Rose Montana on YouTube.

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.
