Die offizielle Pressemeldung vom 20. April 2010:

COLUMBIA RECORDS TO RELEASE BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND’S ‚LONDON CALLING: LIVE IN HYDE PARK‘ CONCERT FILM ON JUNE 22

RELEASE MARKS FIRST SPRINGSTEEN OUTDOOR CONCERT FILM AND FIRST FROM A FESTIVAL SETTING
On June 22, Columbia Records will release Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band’s ‚London Calling: Live In Hyde Park‘ concert film on one Blu-Ray disc and as a two DVD set. Captured in London at the Hard Rock Calling Festival on June 28, 2009 in HD, the 163-minute film documents 26 tracks of live Springsteen that begin in daylight and progress through a gorgeous sunset into night.
‚London Calling: Live In Hyde Park‘ conveys both the experience of being on-stage and the vast crowd experience of the festival environment. Viewers are able to see Springsteen spontaneously directing the E Street Band and shaping the show as it evolves.
The set list spans from ‚Born To Run‘ era to ‚Working On a Dream‘ and includes rare covers such as The Clash’s „London Calling,“ Jimmy Cliff’s „Trapped,“ The Young Rascals‘ „Good Lovin‘,“ and Eddie Floyd’s „Raise Your Hand.“ Springsteen also performs fan favorite „Hard Times (Come Again No More),“ written by Stephen Foster in 1854. Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem joins the band as a guest vocalist on Springsteen’s own „No Surrender.“
The concert earned rave reviews. The London Times called it „epic“ and „a revved-up three-hour power drive through Springsteen’s America.“ The Independent concurred, „He awed the 50,000-strong crowd. Drenched in sweat by the second number, tossing his guitars to the roadies with the vigour of a frontman a third of his age and jogging down a walkway to meet his fans and take their requests, Springsteen’s intensity was staggering from first powerful vocal to final thrashed-out chord.“
GRAMMY and Emmy Award-winning producer and editor Thom Zimny and director Chris Hilson, both members of Springsteen’s video team dating back over a decade, oversaw the film. Audio was mixed by Bob Clearmountain.
Bonus material includes stunning footage of „The River“ from Glastonbury, June 27; and the full music video for „Wrecking Ball,“ filmed at New Jersey’s Giants Stadium.

We look forward to many, many more years of touring …

In einem Interview mit dem ‚Billboard Magazin‘, bestätigte Bruce Springsteen, dass die Working on a Dream Tour nicht die letzte Tournee der E Street Band war.

Q. Not to put you on the spot, but does this feel like it might be the last run for the E Street Band?
A. No. We don’t even really think of it. The only thing that came into my mind was a decade ago, when I hit 50, I was onstage in Philadelphia, and you realize, „OK, this is exactly where I want to be right now. I wouldn’t want to be any place else.“ You realize there is a finiteness to it … weiterlesen

Little Steven produziert neuen Song

E Street Band Gitarrist Little Steven van Zandt hat mit der norwegischen (Frauen) Band „The Cocktail Slippers“ den Song „St. Valentine’s Day Massacre“ eingespielt:

CD Review:

Cocktail Slippers „St. Valentine’s Day Massacre”
Published February 13th:
ROCK (Wicked Cool Record Co.)

When a dude labels his anthology series „The Coolest Songs in the World” and backs up his audacious claim through seven solid volumes of garage-rock manna from heaven, his musical recommendations can be trusted implicitly. So, if Steven Van Zandt loves the Cocktail Slippers, you should, too.

The E Street Band guitarist and creator/host of „Little Steven’s Underground Garage” is so enamored of this all-girl Norwegian quintet that he signed the group to his Wicked Cool label in 2007 for their U.S. album debut, „Mastermind.” He even kicked in a few original songs, including the title cut on the Slippers’ latest, „St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.” On it, Van Zandt’s touch immediately is felt in the ’60s girl-group-influenced rhythm, keyboard and backing-vocal arrangement that also recalls the ’70s Runaways and ’80s Go-Go’s.

Ferner spricht Little Steven in einem Interview mit dem norwegischen Fernsehsender NRK über die „Working on a Dream Tour“ und den anstehenden Auftritt in Bergen.
