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

Update: 7. Dezember ’10: Bruce Springsteen Live in Asbury Park, NJ

Bruce Springsteen wird mit seiner E Street Band am Dienstag Nachmittag (7. Dezember 2010 – gegen 15.00 Uhr Ortszeit) in Asbury Park, NJ auftreten, um einige Fans mit Songs des neuen Albums “The Promise” zu erfreuen. Das Mini-Konzert im “Carousel House” wird mitgefilmt und wird in naher Zukunft auf der Homepage des Künstler BruceSpringsteen.net zu sehen sein.


Bühnenaufbau – 7. Dezember 2010

Die amerikanische Fanseite Backstreets.com verschickte am Freitag (3. Dezember 2010) folgende Nachricht an seine Mitglieder:

It’s all cold down along the beach…
The wind’s whippin’ down the boardwalk…

And if you don’t mind braving that kind of weather, we want to give you a chance to be there when Bruce Springsteen does a video shoot on the Jersey Shore next week!

Extra! Extra!
On Tuesday, December 7, Bruce will be convening the E Street Band on the Jersey Shore to play tracks from The Promise for a special future webcast. And unlike the Darkness ’09 film, they don’t want to play to nobody… so we’ve got the chance to send a small number of fans to be extras for the filming.

Bear in mind, this won’t be a concert, exactly — it’s a shoot, with all the stops and starts that usually entails. And it’s likely gonna be a cold, windy December afternoon, not in the cozy confines of previous Shore venues like the Paramount Theatre or Convention Hall. But it’ll also be a unique opportunity to see Bruce and the Band in action and up close, working up performance debuts of songs from The Promise, and to be part of the small crowd in an intimate space when they capture it on film.
We’ll be selecting a handful of fans by random drawing to be part of the audience, each able to bring one guest. To enter the drawing, all you need to do is send us an email (see details below). Please only enter IF:

  • You’re able to get yourself and your guest to the Jersey Shore on Tuesday, December 7, in the mid-afternoon.
  • You’re sure you can be there — we want to get as many fans in as possible and may not be able to adjust for no-shows.
  • You can make it on short notice — all winners may not be notified until late Monday evening.
  • You can stand the weather!

If that’s you and you’d like to enter for a chance to be there, please send an email to thepromise@backstreets.com with the following information.

For the subject line, type the name of the musician (a longtime Jackson Browne associate) who played violin on The Promise’s version of “Racing in the Street.”

In the body of the email, include your name and address (as it appears on your picture ID), as well as your cell phone (or other contact number) and preferred email address, for any and all notifications about Tuesday.

Entries must be received by Sunday, December 5, at 2 p.m. ET to be eligible for the drawing. One entry per email address, please. Those selected to attend (plus one guest) will be contacted by email as soon as possible (but again, it could be up to Monday night) with full details. We’ll post a notice on the News page to let you know when all notifications have gone out.

Good luck, we’ll hope to see you there!
