The Star-Ledger schreibt:

At Light of Day 11 in Asbury Park, Springsteen plays benevolent king
Jesse Malin looked like he’d just won the lottery.
His performance at the eleventh Light of Day had already been going well — he’d told the audience to stand up and get boisterous, and the crowd at the sold-out Paramount Theater in Asbury Park was happy to oblige him … weiterlesen

Asbury Park Press schreibt:

Springsteen highlights Asbury Park’s marathon “Light Of Day’ show for Parkinson’s disease
It must be like an unquenchable thirst.
Each time he came on stage to join another performer, Springsteen was unobtrusive, but seemed ever more reluctant to leave, until finally he just stayed, which is what everybody wanted anyway. There he was, in a plaid flannel shirt, eyes crinkled by a constant smile, playing fantastic stuff … “Atlantic City,” “Pink Cadillac,” “Your Own Worst Enemy,” “Adam Raised A Cain,” and on and on … weiterlesen

Springsteen rocks Light of Day 11 in Asbury Park
An energized Bruce Springsteen held the stage for more than ninety minutes at the Light of Day benefit at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park last night. The rocker, who is strongly associated with the Jersey shore town, aired songs from across his career, opening with acoustic versions of “Your Own Worst Enemy” from the recent “Magic” and the infrequently played “This Hard Land” before plugging in and tearing through favorites from “Nebraska,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” and “Born to Run.” …  weiterlesen

Jesse Malin “Love it To Life”

Der aus Whitestone im New Yorker Stadtteil Queens stammende Musiker Jesse Malin, hat am 30. April sein fünftes Studioalbum “Love it To Life” veröffentlicht. 2007 wurde er mit dem Longplayer “Glitter in the Gutter” und dem Bruce Springsteen Duett “Broken Radio” weltbekannt.

Interview mit Jesse Malin (spinner.com):

“Read the lyrics to ‘Born in the USA’: It’s not patriotic,” Malin says. “It’s not ‘get a pickup truck and a rifle.’ That whole record — it’s this huge platinum record, and at least four or five of the songs, the characters, at the end of the song, they go to jail or they’re dead.”

Burning In The Bowery
All The Way From Moscow

NJ.com schreibt:

Bruce Springsteen guested at the first Light of Day benefit concert, in 2000. He has appeared — always unbilled — at most of the annual LOD shows, which raise money for Parkinson’s disease research, since then. And Saturday night at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre, he did so again, joining Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers at midnight, and staying on stage for more than 70 minutes ... weiterlesen und Bilder anschauen
