Previously from the Springsteen archive: March 9th, 2012 – New York, NY – Apollo Theatre

"Way off in some never never land of rhythm and blues there was a place called the Apollo. It was the home of The Gods and the true Temple of Soul."

Previously from the Springsteen archive: April 23rd, 1988 – Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena

Unearthed from the Springsteen vault back in July 2015, the second show of a five night run inside the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena was the first ever full concert from the Tunnel of Love Express Tour to be officially released, and while the concerts from Detroit, New York and Stockholm that have been released … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: April 23rd, 1988 – Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena

Previously from the Springsteen archive: December 8th, 1978 – Houston, TX – The Summit

Back when the plan to release a Bruce Springsteen concert from the vault every first Friday of the month was announced, it was said that there'd be the odd occasion where an we'd get an additional release per month. With the exception of the Christmas bonuses, there's only been one instance of this, back in … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: December 8th, 1978 – Houston, TX – The Summit

Previously from the Springsteen archive: October 20th, 2009 – Philadelphia, PA – Wachovia Spectrum

The last of six shows in Philadelphia on the Working on a Dream Tour was - to put it lightly - not received well at all upon its release from the vault in July 2017. Being the fourth of four shows from 2008 - 2012 released in a row, instead of celebrating the show's several … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: October 20th, 2009 – Philadelphia, PA – Wachovia Spectrum

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. Add to that the fact that this was the second of just two Archive Series releases in 2016 (the primary focus for Nugs were … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: November 22nd, 2009 – Buffalo, NY – HSBC Arena

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. We all know that pristine recordings from the decade are scarce, the … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: February 7th & 8th, 1977 – Palace Theatre, Albany, NY & Auditorium Theatre, Rochester, NY

Previously from the Springsteen archive: July 31st, 2012 – Helsinki, FI – Olympiastadion

The most recent release from the Wrecking Ball World Tour transported us back to the great second night in Gothenburg on July 28th, 2012.

Previously from the Springsteen archive: August 5th, 1984 – East Rutherford, NJ – Brendan Byrne Arena

The opening night of the homecoming Brendan Byrne Arena stand of the Born in the U.S.A. World Tour took everybody by surprise when it was released in May 2015. Being very similar setlist to the more well known and better final night of the stand from August 20th, this has been pushed all the way to … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: August 5th, 1984 – East Rutherford, NJ – Brendan Byrne Arena

Previously from the Springsteen archive: July 11th, 2013 – Rome, IT – Ippodromo Delle Capannelle

The official release of Springsteen and The E Street Band's 2013 concert from the Rock in Roma festival has been largely panned by fans. Not for the performance, but instead for the audio quality that was deemed so poor, Nugs ended up having to release a remixed version just over a month later back in 2015. … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: July 11th, 2013 – Rome, IT – Ippodromo Delle Capannelle
