It’s hard to imagine Bruce Springsteen describing a project of his as a concept album—too much prog baggage, too much expectation of some big, grand, overarching story. But nothing he’s done across five decades as one of rock’s most accomplished storytellers has had the singular, specific focus and locus, lyrically and musically, as this long-gestating solo effort—a lush meditation on the landscape of the western United States and the people who are drawn there, or got stuck there.

Bruce brings the Devils & Dust solo tour to an unforgettable conclusion with a set list that pulls out all the stops for the final show in Trenton.

Equal parts concert and Irish wake, Tampa 2008 celebrates the life of founding E Street Band member Dan Federici, who passed away five days earlier. With heavy hearts, Bruce and the band perform a charged, emotional set that blends key tracks from Magic and songs selected with Phantom Dan in mind, including the tour premiere of “Growin’ Up,” a rare, show-opening “Backstreets,” “4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)” and a cathartic, one-off performance of the gospel standard, “I’ll Fly Away.”

The final U.S. stop on the Tunnel of Love tour is a powerful showcase for the album along with rare Springsteen originals and covers.

Culled from the four-night Roxy residency on the Born to Run tour, the October 18 early show captures Bruce and the E Street Band on a mission to conquer Los Angeles.

A few months after the release of his autobiography Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen took to the stage of the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York for a number of stunning concerts. The Boss performs tracks from his extensive music career acoustically on guitar and piano, intertwining his compositions with personal anecdotes. The result is this intense and unfiltered live performance, including the stripped-back and powerful versions of tracks from his albums Greetings from Asbury Park, Born in the U.S.A., Nebraska, Tracks, Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, Tunnel of Love, Magic, The Rising and Wrecking Ball

At last, the Rising tour arrives in the form of Springsteen’s first-ever appearance in Finland. Helsinki serves as a potent album showcase and features nine Rising cuts including “Lonesome Day,” “Empty Sky,” “World’s Apart,” “You’re Missing,” “Into the Fire” and the title track. The set’s poignancy is well balanced by playfulness, with vibrant versions of “No Surrender,” “Dancing In The Dark,” “Darlington County,” “Seven Nights To Rock” and “Glory Days,” plus a striking, set-opening solo acoustic version of “Born In The U.S.A.”
