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: 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.

Previously from the Springsteen archive: December 31st, 1975 – Upper Darby, PA – Tower Theatre

Until The Roxy '75 arrived in December 2018, Upper Darby '75 stood out as the lone Archive release from a period of Springsteen's career that fans can't help but want more of. Though it wasn't the only release from the era - remember, Hammersmith Odeon '75 had been available for nearly a decade at this … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: December 31st, 1975 – Upper Darby, PA – Tower Theatre

Previously from the Springsteen archive: November 5th, 1980 – Tempe, AZ – ASU Activity Center

In the first part of my guide to Springsteen's Archive series I briefly talked about the collection of 10 songs performed on November 5th 1980 in Tempe. While experiencing the rest of the show this past week through the official DVD released as part of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection - released in December 2015 … Continue reading Previously from the Springsteen archive: November 5th, 1980 – Tempe, AZ – ASU Activity Center
