brucespringsteen.net

The latest archival release from Bruce Springsteen finds him at the peak of his commercial powers, performing in support of Born in the U.S.A.in 1984. This is the first complete recording to be officially issued from that tour.

This 1984 concert, taped at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, N.J., follows earlier releases focusing on shows at Cleveland in 1978 and Springsteen’s most recent concerts in support of 2014’s High Hopes. Thirty of that tour’s 35 stops were also made available via live.brucespringsteen.net.

On Aug. 5, 1984, Springsteen and the E Street Band played songs from Born in the U.S.A., which was release two months earlier, as well as a bunch of older favorites. The concert also featured their take on Tom Waits‘ “Jersey Girl.”  You can see the complete set list below.

The E Street Band had recently been remade during this period following Steven Van Zandt‘s departure. Springsteen added both Nils Lofgren and Patti Scialfa, who would eventually become Springsteen’s wife, to the lineup. The Aug. 5 show also marked the first of 10 nights at Brendan Byrne.
