Offizielle Pressemeldung: 3 Abschlusskonzerte im Giants Stadium

Offizielle Pressemeldung vom 22. Mai 2009:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 22, 2009

SPRINGSTEEN PROCLAIMS RETURN TO NJ AS FINAL MAJOR MUSICAL ACT TO PLAY GIANTS STADIUM SEPT 30, OCT 2, & OCT 3

Bruce Springsteen announced from the stage tonight at his Izod Center concert in East Rutherford, NJ that he and the “legendary” E Street Band will return as the final major musical act to play Giants Stadium on September 30, October 2, and October 3. Tickets go on sale June 1 at 10am Eastern. Springsteen holds the record as the number one selling artist at the Meadowlands (which includes Giants Stadium) in New Jersey, having sold out 56 concerts to date with the E Street Band.

The Working on a Dream tour has earned rave reviews, with Shawn Courchesne of the Hartford Courant proclaiming, “It just got better and better… perfect, simply perfect.” Rolling Stone Online proclaimed of a rehearsal concert, “Springsteen seemed to offer a renewed sense of purpose and optimism onstage… rejuvenating and uniting a people in danger of losing their faith.”

“He’s the best there is,” exclaimed Melissa Baron of SF Weekly, “Springsteen played so hard that sweat dripped off his whole body.” Ricardo Baca of The Denver Post wrote, “Springsteen is a better showman today than in 1984,” while Mike Ragogna said in the Huffington Post, “If you haven’t been to one of Springsteen’s shows in a while, you need to catch this tour.” Meanwhile Sarah Rodman of the Boston Globe writes, “Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band don’t have to play for two hours and 40 minutes. Nor, when they play, is it a requirement that Springsteen fall to his knees, shimmy and shake, attack his guitar like he’s still discovering new sounds it can make, or take audience requests that he and his band don’t know how to play… Springsteen and his band did all of that and more.” Martin Cizmar of The Phoenix New Times had never seen Springsteen live. “I’m not from Jersey, I didn’t grow up with The Boss and I’d never seen him play before,” Cizmar admits, “but I will say that nearly everything you’ve heard or read about a Springsteen show is true. The fans are rabid, the set marathon, Springsteen a first-rate showman.”

‘Working on a Dream’ (Columbia Records) debuted at #1 in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and New Zealand and received exemplary reviews in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, People, and elsewhere.

Born to Drum – Interview mit Jay und Max Weinberg

Der “Star Leager” veröffentlichte am 15. Mai ’09 ein Interview mit Jay und Max Weinberg

Jay’s first E Street experience came in July 2008, when he sat in for his father for one song — “Born To Run” — at a Giants Stadium concert, and didn’t miss a beat. Max says that late last year, when he conferred with Springsteen and others in the E Street organization about possibly missing shows, the idea of Jay taking over temporarily presented itself as “a very elegant and poetic solution.”

Den ganzen Bericht gibt’s hier.
