Remember me. "Meet me in the city" is a song from Bruce Springsteen's "The ties that bind: The River Collection" boxset. The boxset celebrates the 35th.
Darling you know just what I'm here for. So you're scared and you're thinking That maybe we ain't that young anymore. Show a little faith, there's magic in the night; You ain't a beauty but hey you're all right.
Oh and that's all right with me. Hey what else can we do now? Except roll down the window And let the wind blow back your hair. Well the night's busting open, These two lanes will take us anywhere. We got one last chance to make it real, To trade in these wings on some wheels. Climb in back, heaven's waiting on down the tracks. Oh come take my hand, We're riding out tonight to case the promised land.
Oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road. And in the lonely cool before dawn, You hear their engines roaring on. But when you get to the porch they're gone on the wind. So Mary climb in. It's a town full of losers, And I'm pulling out of here to win. The night is dark but the sidewalk's bright And lined with the light of the living.
From a tenement window a transistor blasts, Turn around the corner things got real quiet real fast. She hit me with a Tenth Avenue freeze-out. And the world is busting at its seams; And you're just a prisoner of your dreams. Holding on for your life 'cause you work all day To blow 'em away in the night.

Laying here in the dark you're like an angel on my chest, Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness. But I got to the point where I was afraid to ask anybody! But there aren't a whole lot of guest artists on it; it's basically the band, which I'm planning on taking on the road with me and having some fun. Yeah, just like Nils, I know you had some dates lined up that you had to cancel because of the River Tour Or does it just kind of depend on what happens with the E Street tour?
Oh, everything depends on this band: The E Street Band is my number one priority. I've been in the band a long time, and I'm not gonna go off solo at this point in my life. This is just a side thing that I need to get out of my system, and the E Street Band But as soon as we can get it together, we're gonna go out there and tour behind this.
And I'm already working on the next album, which will be my tribute to the garage bands of the '60s. Yeah, I'm not sure there's not going to be anything consistent about the things that I do. I'm just doing them now because I can.
And I bet Steve might be a good guy to play a part somewhere in your sophomore album. We keep talking about working together, but he's so damn busy with his TV projects and everything else! He was gonna work on this one, but if we both had waited until our schedules actually aligned, things would just never get done. That's what's happened in the past.
But I would love to have Steve with me on that. We'll see what happens. And we do have a tour from you to look forward to, next time it's "break time.
The LP has a very limited pressing of just 1, copies, and it comes with a free download code. Thanks to Garry, who autographed a stack of seven-inch singles for us, we've got a quite a few "golden tickets" we'll be slipping into Break Time orders as a bonus as we ship them out. Each one is signed "Thanks, Garry Tallent. Order now for a chance at one of these 45 copies, which we'll be inserting into packages completely at random as we fulfill pre-orders.
As of February 23, we've taken exactly pre-orders for Break Time, which puts current odds of receiving one of the 45 signed singles at better than 1 in 6. Place your pre-order by this Friday, February 26, for a chance at a golden ticket! Of course, Garry's busy on the road with the E Street Band, but with the official release of Break Time coming up next week, he's making time for a few promotional appearances — don't miss these coming up: DJ Rich Russo — aka "The Jersey Guy" — has put together an amazing two-and-a-half-hour program with Garry, featuring their extensive interview and lots of music.
In addition to talking Break Time, they cover an incredible amount of ground, going way back to the Moment of Truth, Garry's first band in the late '60s, which also included Vini Lopez on drums.
And not only do you get to hear about it, you get to hear it, with a live track from And just "crazy historical stuff," Russo says, "like the story of 'Fire,' and Elvis, and where the riff came from Vintage Vinyl is also carrying the LP, and a pre-order from our friends there will include a wristband that gets you into the signing.
Even aside from the setpiece of the album performance, which we knew wouldn't change, the encore has been suprisingly static. For the past few weeks it's started with "Born to Run" and ended with "Shout," and you could generally predict what would be in between.
So it was a particular treat Yum! And instead of launching into a lights-up "Born to Run" as usual, Bruce gestured to the balcony behind him where there had been a request sign appearing throughout the night.
You had the sign! You had the sign, I don't see the sign, but I know it was there! This is for you guys. Louisville was a hot show all around, with a strong, vigorously played post-River set that carried momentum from one song to the next, "Badlands" into "No Surrender" and beyond. Tracks from that can sometimes feel tired — "Lonesome Day," "The Rising" — were dynamic and inspiring, and that energy carried all the way through the encore.
For "Dancing in the Dark," a sign advertising "5 Sisters, 1 Boss" got a quintet of same-shirted women onto the stage, and as Bruce partied his way through "Rosalita" and soaked himself down for a "Shout" that actually felt fresh, you had the feeling that he could go all night.
But of course "Shout" would have to be the end, right? Nope, there was our second encore surprise, as he came back to the mic to keep it rocking, boys. All that, of course, was the icing on the cake Yum! Springsteen described the album as one "where I was trying to find my way inside — my first series of records were kind of 'outsider' records, we were all part of a marginalized community on the streets of Asbury Park.

Bruce sings them differently, the band plays them differently. I'll remind myself here to compare various takes on "Point Blank" as the downloads become available.
The more talking from Bruce the better, for my money, and his commentary on the album's songs is expanding as well. I was looking for a love song. We found this, something we'd cut back for the Darkness album, inin one take. This was the most respectful crowd of the several I've seen on this tour, first noticeable when there was actually quiet for "Independence Day," and it continued throughout the set for those slower songs that demand attention.
There's a tendency to call these songs "quiet," but it struck me in Louisville that the band is introducing more dynamics as the tour goes on.
But in the quietest moments, fewer distracted fans in the crowd really boosted the experience. It also fed the energy that sustained the barnburner back third and the feeling that it just couldn't have gotten too late for Louisville.
It wasn't exactly a grimace — there was a small but noticeable release in his face. Whatever he was feeling in that millisecond, the rest of the Philips Arena was feeling it as well. If you're a hardcore fan sitting behind a laptop in Metuchen, NJ, you're going to write the show off due to the setlist. I know, I've done it myself. The reason these particular shows are so wonderful is the level that the E Street Band is playing at.
The old adage "addition by subtraction" seems to apply on this tour. Without the extraneous vocals, percussion, and horns, you get to the core of what the E Street Band can be about. More than the Magic tour or any I can think of, this is very much their garage band tour. Part of this comes from the material they are featuring.
Watching Steven on stage Thursday night, there were a number of times that he was truly basking in the crowd. After "Shout," while Bruce was off to the side holding hands with Patti and waving to the crowd, Steven was front and center, nodding up and down, hands outstretched like Pope Francis reveling in the reception they were getting. While the second half of the show is what drove the crowd wild, it's the performance of The River that is the diamond of this tour.
Sitting in Max's Coal Oven Pizza in the Marietta section of Atlanta Thursday afternoon, I was preparing my year-old daughter for the show she was going to see. It was her fourth Bruce show in seven years, but she's still pretty new to The River.
In the last ten weeks I've probably played The River as much or more than I played the original LPs back into prepare her for this show. I start rattling off the classics — some she's heard, some she will: The River lands somewhere in the Top 3 of those titles for me don't ask the other two, it changes daily.
What I've come to realize is that when these River shows were announced in December, it seemed easy and safe. How often has Bruce started a tour behind a record and, 30 shows in, the ratio of new to classic songs flip? This time, he and the E Street Band are locked into this format, and it's demanding of both the people on stage and the people in the seats.
Having caught my second show, playing The River start to finish is far more ambitious than I originally considered. Most bands on the road would look at Springsteen's setlist from Thursday and start their shows with "Prove It All Night" and end with "Shout," with maybe another song or two thrown in for 90 to minutes of music, and the crowd would go away happy. There were so many great moments Thursday night, especially during The River segment: Soozie's understated violin in "Independence Day"; Bruce's electric string during "The Price You Pay"; the subtle spotlights on Charlie, Garry, Max, Roy and Bruce during "Drive All Night" as well as the "Dream Baby Dream" section of the same song; Roy's sonic organ that moves the tempo forward on songs like "The Price You Pay" and "Brilliant Disguise"; Nils' acoustic guitar adding dimension to "Wreck on the Highway," Bruce's beer chug at the back of the pit in the middle of "I'm a Rocker"; the dedication of "Born to Run" to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and longtime Atlanta concert promoter Alex Cooley; and finally his dance with a woman fighting cancer during "Dancing in the Dark" topped off a wonderful night of crowd interaction.
But none of that can be witnessed or expressed in a setlist on a laptop. Packages include prime seating or a pit ticketas well as a pre-show meet-and-greet and photo with Stevie. All proceeds benefit the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation.
If you're shut out of a show but would rather your money go to a great cause than to scalpers, then this is sweet charity for sure packages are tax-deductable, minus the face value of your tickets. Carefully chosen over the last several weeks, Jim dug deep through his archives to present "The River Collection Outtakes," an additional online tour of rare images captured on December 31, It was a historic night, one of Springsteen's longest ever and officially released as part of the nugs.
We've got some sneak peeks here, including a dance with the devil with the blue dress on These outtakes supplement Shive's recent "River Collection" of Limited Edition prints, with additional Giclee Open Edition prints in smaller size prints to satisfy the hungriest Bruce hearts, fans and collectors.
It was October and The River album was still on trucks, yet to be delivered to your now-long-gone neighborhood record store. Times change, life changes over and over and, as the man says, it comes right at you. So this time the road was Alligator Alley, those Midwest winters finally too much to take, and just two of us headed off to someplace called Sunrise and a building named after a bank, with The River in a fancy box with lots of other stuff.
To this day I am convinced the only thing that rivals a Bruce show and it is surely a show, not a concert is the anticipation of it, and that just seems to raise the stakes.
After all, we endured the online ordering nightmare wishing for the days when we stood outside for hours until our local Sears store with a ticket machine finally opened the doors. But I did have a concern based on my only barometer for this tour, opening night in Pittsburgh.
There was way too much chitchat that night, and that is being kind. Songs that resonated with me for the many decades were tainted by folks who were there for only old hits and arena-rattling rockers. As Bruce said again tonight as he led us down to the River: It deserves our time, our money and our respect.
I lucked out in Florida. The "best available" tickets turned out to be on the side of the stage, tucked in between Charlie's back and Soozie's side. And my newfound friends in section were kindred spirits; they came for the music, all of it. A young lady in front of me even apologized in advance because she likes to dance a lot. I told her to just dance the night away.
By now you know the drill, and probably the setlist, too. No surprises, no premieres, and maybe one fulfilled request. So we'll go straight to the highlights, which included Bruce looking quite happy to escape the winter weather for this solo date in the Sunshine State.
I knew going in that "Independence Day" would be the litmus test for the entire evening, the first of the straight-from-the-heart treasure chest on the album. It was treated around me just as it was those nights at the Uptown, some couples even holding on to one another and just moving their lips. Imagine, if you will, any tour of the last decades where you got all three in one night. I dare say you would have floated out of the arena.
Other notable moments included a marriage proposal in the rarified air of the third level during "I Wanna Marry You"; Jake at one point taking over duties on the harmonica; and Steve taking the stage for "Meet Me in the City" a song that was finally well received, by the way looking like a clone of Darth Vader or Johnny Cash.
Not everyone was as lucky as me tonight — reports from the pit of rude behavior were numerous, and it left a bad taste for many of the tour diehards. But as I walked out into the beautiful Florida night I thought about those many days and nights along the trail with Bruce and E Street since the Uptown Shows. I wouldn't change a thing and lets hope the sheer joy of The River never changes, either.
As Anderson Cooper voiceovers, "Over the years, Clinch has taken thousands of pictures of Springsteen, and many have become classics. Watch the minute segment at cbsnews. Taking the stage, Bruce greeted the crowd: We're so glad to be in the City of Brotherly Love," and asked "Are you ready to be entertained?
Bruce would grade the crowd's "Hungry Heart" participation as "A plus! Bruce became audibly emotional at the end of the introduction, as he explained the setting, "a late night conversation around the kitchen table between two people that loved each other and were struggling to understand. They're the instrument of sex. Any idiot can do it. And you imagine this whole life with that person just by the way they're moving or walking.
What your kids are going to look like, where you're going to live… You imagine the easiest kind of life, and it's all bliss, it's all first kisses. Who remembers their first kiss? He stopped the band at the end, taking a pregnant pause, before cueing them and shaking the maracas in earnest for "I Wanna Marry You.
It is gorgeous, and riveting, and remarkable, Steve on the Gretsch peeling off those Duane Eddy-esque licks, Garry in the back like some mysterious country gentleman, bass line reverberating. Did you forget how to fight? And the nightly performances of "The Price You Pay" have helped the band finally exhibit the rollicking countrified masterpiece it is, complete with outstanding harmony vocals. Bruce added a new introduction to "Drive All Night," explaining that when finishing the record, he wanted a love song for the end, and "went back into our archives and I found this, that we cut inI think, in one take.
The beginning of the encores feels like a missed opportunity, as a place where Bruce has in the past showcased rarities with great success.
Tonight it was omitted, as Bruce counted right in to "Born to Run" as the house lights went up. There was, however, a very welcome tour premiere of the Born in the U.
Patti Scialfa returned to the stage for this show after two nights off and was featured on "Human Touch. Bruce wanted to sing with Patti and he wanted to play guitar with her too, locking eyes and keeping her close to the center even after the vocals were done. The big surprise of the night came next, as the familiar opening notes of "Jungleland" received a supersonic roar of approval and welcome from the crowd, as Bruce held the guitar aloft in the spotlight.
Perhaps it was that applause that caused him to miss the cue for the first line of the second verse.

He continued with a grin, and the crowd just sang louder in response. They cheered for Jake Clemons when he stepped up to play his uncle's signature solo, and they applauded in recognition as Bruce acknowledged him in the shadows after the solo ended. Come the final verse, as the band dropped out after "wounded, not even dead" there was silence, followed by a loud cheer, followed by a large "Bruuuce" before the Philadelphians joined Bruce for the final "down in Jungleland.
The "Detroit Medley" will have to wait for another night, as Friday in Philadelphia was already the longest show of the tour to date, just short of three hours and twenty-seven minutes.

Publishing insiders are already panting for the book — even though there is no manuscript yet. I haven't looked at it in quite a while. On the cover, Frank Stefanko's classic "Corvette Winter" shot from In Born to Run, Springsteen describes growing up in Freehold, New Jersey amid the "poetry, danger, and darkness" that fueled his imagination.
He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band.
The big story is that, for the third show in a row, the post-album set featured the tour premiere of another River outtake. Although not everyone in the Hartford crowd seemed to either recognize "Loose Ends" or realize the significance of getting another lost classic, a powerful performance left the cognoscenti overjoyed.
The second item of note is that, for the second show in a row, Patti Scialfa was missing from the E Street Band, with no explanation from Bruce. Or maybe it was acknowledged by him, as "Bobby Jean" made an appearance in the encores for the second show running, serving as the vehicle for the band intros as well.
Without Patti, Garry Tallent stepped up into the front row, and Bruce put him on the spot early on, calling for him to sing on "Out in the Street.
Throughout the night, Garry seemed to be more animated, after being liberated from the back of the stage. The River album itself is showing positive effects of repeated playings, with different arrangements of songs starting to make their way in.
Bruce has poked fun at "Crush on You" in the past as being a lightweight throwaway.
