Previously from the Springsteen archive: March 19th, 1996 – Belfast, UK – King’s Hall

Looking back at the last fifteen years, the thought of Bruce Springsteen playing alone is nothing shocking. In fact, for many fans the idea of solo Springsteen brings about visions of recent creative diversions from the E Street norm, from the rarity filled Devils & Dust Tour and monumental boogaloo down Broadway, to the acclaimed … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: March 19th, 1996 – Belfast, UK – King’s Hall

Previously from the Springsteen archive: November 22nd, 2009 – Buffalo, NY – HSBC Arena

A Christmas special and Working on a Dream don't exactly go hand in hand for most fans, especially when you consider how the usual Festive Archive bonus is something from the Darkness Tour.

Previously from the Springsteen archive: February 7th & 8th, 1977 – Palace Theatre, Albany, NY & Auditorium Theatre, Rochester, NY

Grievances against the audio quality of certain shows and The Rising Tour fiasco aside, the biggest complaint many have about Springsteen's Archive Series is its lack of releases from the 1970s - more so anything before 1975 and anything in-between '75 and '78.
