The Rock Welcomes Home Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are heading home to New Jersey and Prudential Center on Sunday, January 31 with The River Tour. The show will feature a full performance of “The River” with additional songs. The tour coincides with the release of "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection," a comprehensive look at the ‘80s era and "The River" album that Rolling Stone called "Springsteen's best archival release yet." Springsteen returns to The Rock, having previously played the building twice in 2012, with the E Street Band in May – a sold out performance – and his special appearance during the Rolling Stones: 50 & Counting concert in December.
Springsteen will precede the tour with a December 19 performance on "Saturday Night Live," his third appearance on the NBC show.
The River Tour (#TheRiverTour) is the first for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band since the 2014 High Hopes Tour. Each night of the tour will be mixed for release on Live.BruceSpringsteen.net as high-quality downloads and CDs. Recordings will be available within days of each performance.
The original The River Tour began October 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Springsteen's fifth album, and continued through September 4, 1981. With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour firmly established a reputation for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.
"The Ties That Bind: The River Collection" includes 52 tracks on four CDs with a wealth of unreleased material and four hours of never-before-seen video on three DVDs. It contains the original "The River" double album; the first official release of "The River: Single Album"; a CD of 1979/80 studio outtakes; a brand-new documentary about "The River"; and a coffee-table book of 200 rare or previously unseen photos and memorabilia, with a new essay by Mikal Gilmore. The set also includes a two-DVD film of never-released, newly edited multi-camera footage from a November 1980 show in Tempe, AZ, described by NPR as a "holy grail."
"The Ties That Bind: The River Collection" is available at Amazon (4CD/3DVD or 4CD/2Blu-ray —http://smarturl.it/tiesthatbind_amz) and iTunes ( http://smarturl.it/tiesthatbind_itunes).
The E Street Band's members are: Roy Bittan – piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren – guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa – guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent – bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt – guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg – drums; with Soozie Tyrell – violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons – saxophone; and Charlie Giordano – keyboards.
