THAT SPRINGSTEEN SHOW YOU JUST SAW? YOU CAN RELIVE IT OVER AND OVER NOW!
Last week, when that big honkin' blizzard hit the East Coast, Bruce Springsteen was forced to cancel one of his shows at Madison Square Garden. He realized that this was a pretty big deal, so he made a really cool gesture to make up for it. For a couple of days he made his recent Chicago show available as a free download. I hope you guys had a chance to grab it, because it's pretty awesome. Anything Bruce is pretty awesome, though.
Miss out on it? Well, if you go to nugs.net you can get the Chicago show and any of the shows he's playing on this tour as a download. They're not free, but they're pretty inexpensive. A standard MP3 download is under ten bucks, but you can go FLAC, HD Audio or CD if you like. The prices go up with each format, but discerning ears will find the extra cost worth their time.
Right now there is a free Springsteen download on the site. It's ten songs from the November 5th, 1980 show that he played in Tempe, AZ. This is the same show that's included in the new The River box set that came up last year. By all accounts this is one of the greatest Springsteen shows out there, so this is quite a treat.
Are you going to see Bruce and the E Street Band play on February 29th in St Paul? You can pre-order it here!
