Similar set list to waht we saw, some nice tunes that we didn't get.

I loved the Tom Joad album, a lot of folks thought it was too dark.

I'll agree with you, Death to my Hometown is powerful.

Kind of a meaner version of Youngstown.

I smiled when the Dem. convention ended with them playing "We Take Care of Our Own".

Fitting.

I hear ya .. I usually go to at least a dozen games a year and this was the first time I went this year. It's not worth the money they charge.

Those of us who follow a couple of long haired hippie bands kind of expect that.

At least we used to.

It might be the angriest song I've heard since James McMurtry's "We Can't Make It Here"

Thanks. Not only is the song great and the performance powerful - but how cool is it that Bruce and management provide these great quality multi camera, high audio quality videos?

clicked from that and over to the Warren/Weir stuf from Capitol and impossible to listen to the tinny sound...

We've gotten too used to this kind of thing...

Bruce still puts out new product and management markets and promotes it.
The same could be for the ABB had they steadily released new product and got on the charts.

I've described Death to my Hometown as a really pissed off Youngstown.

Congrats, looks like a really great setlist, but this one caught my eye;

18. None But The Brave

That's a song from the "Born In The USA" sessions that didn't make the album.
I think this might have only been the 3rd time its been played live. Great tune.

As for playing 3 1/2 hour shows in the States, they made it to 3 3/4 in Philadelphia a week or so ago.

Just my opinion but it was my worst Bruce experience and I have seen him a lot. I coiuldn't have seen the stage with high powered binaculars. Not sure why they put the stage all the way back against the center field wall. I could have watched a DVD on my couch.


Havning said that, Bruce sounded good.

In all baseball stadiums the concert stage is at the center field wall.
Where else would it go? On second base? Don't hold your breath for that to happen, those days are decades long gone.

Anyway imho, STADIUM SHOWS SUCK!

Guess my experience differs from yours regarding the stage. That hasn't been what I have seen.

I will give you stadium shows suck. I thought I had good seats. They sucked.

Bruce is amazing in this ... 40 years of consistently putting out great music. And still going strong with this musical poetry.

(Sorry you got sucky seats, Lee! That distance from the bleachers to outer center field doesn't seem as great in a ball game as it does in a concert...)
