This past Friday in Tampa, Fla., Bruce Springsteen performed "41 Shots" for the first time on his young tour, and the almost-9-minute performance can be seen in the replies. There has been a general consensus that the song, which isn't played very often in live settings, was performed with the ongoing case of Trayvon Martin's shooting and killing in mind. "41 Shots" tells the story of the greatly publicized, horrid death of New York City resident Amadou Diallo, who in 1999 was shot 19 times by four different police officers as he reached into his pocket. Forty-one shots were fired in total and Diallo was unarmed at the time.

Hey everybody, if you look up (no, not at the ceiling, at the top of the homepage!), you'll see a staff content post for today. I wanted to give a snippet out of one of those reviews, a live show review I wrote after watching Bruce Springsteen this Sunday open his Wrecking Ball Tour in Atlanta. I haven't written something like that in a long time - everything just came out fluidly. I felt very strongly about the emotion in the show and I encourage you all to read the blog, and check out Springsteen on tour this year, if you have the means.
From the review“Do I have to say his name?” Springsteen would ask. The crowd would respond, “Clarence!” “Do I have to say his name?!” “Clarence!” The...

fun. sold another 20k of Some Nights last week, landing them at number ten on the charts. Last week's champion, The Boss, brought in another 57k, landing him at number four. Adele sold another 156k, but only hit number two, as One Direction (oh, just what the fuck is this??) grabbed the number one spot.

Bruce Springsteen gave the keynote at SXSW Thursday. Naturally, you can watch it in the replies. It's an hour long - but it's worth the watch. I guess the guy can write speeches too. His world tour kicks off Sunday in Atlanta.
Thomas Nassiff on 03/15/12 - 09:07 PM
Adele is actually seeing some competition for the top spot on the charts from Bruce Springsteen this week. With 50% of the sales tallied, Bruce is trailing Adele by only 8k copies ... think he has the chance to grab the top spot? Think Thomas is buying-out his local Target?

"The street's on fire in a real death waltz between what's flesh and what's fantasy. Man, the poets down here don't write nothing at all; they just stand back and let it all be."

Edit: The opening track "We Take Care of Our Own" can be heard in the replies.

According to the British iTunes website, the name of Bruce Springsteen's new record is Wrecking Ball and its expected release in the UK is March 5. This would theoretically mean a March 6 release in the U.S. The album is slated for 13 songs, which includes two bonus tracks. Fans will recognize "Wrecking Ball" as the name of a song Springsteen wrote and dedicated to the closing of Giants Stadium in 2009; the tracklisting also includes "Land of Hope and Dreams," which is presumably the same song as the B-side from The Rising era, and one of the bonus tracks is "American Land," which Springsteen has played in...
