Audience tape (by Hobbes4444) and audience shot DVD/Blu-ray (by NYCBC). Washington gets three tour premieres in a 26-song set clocking in at just short of three hours. The highlight is the full-band "The Promise", only played twice before; at the opening concert of the Darkness Tour in 1978 and then years later at the Asbury Park Carousel in 2010. "Adam Raised A Cain and "Out in the Street" are the other tour premieres. "Land of Hope and Dreams" returns to the set, along with the pairing of "Seaside Bar Song" and "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?". Bruce has a close call while crowd surfing during "634-5789" as the crowd nearly drops him.

Just let the E Street Band do the talkin' on this one. . .


Unforunately there is a little more mic movement than I would have liked, in part because of the clappers around me, in part because of my seat location.  I was looking straight on at the front of the stage with a stack above and to my left a little pointed away from me.  I aimed the mics up, but probably should have left them in my usual spot.  When Bruce wandered around the arena, I had to move my head a bit to follow him and the sound stage does shift a bit.  Over headphones it will be a little noticeable on Sunny Day, DITD, and 634-5789, but over speakers, maybe not so much.  But damn it sounded nice. Absolutely best sounding Springsteen show (from my location) in many many many years. . .
