Bruce Springsteen, who turns 72 today, has announced release dates of Nov. 16 (digital) and Nov. 19 (DVD, Blu-Ray) for his “The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts” film, featuring 10 previously unreleased performances with the E Street band at the “No Nukes” benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden, and 13 performances overall drawn from the two shows Springsteen and the band appeared at, Sept. 21-22 (just before his 30th birthday on Sept. 23, 1979).
The film was edited by frequent Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimny, with remixed audio by Bob Clearmountain. The music also will be released in CD and vinyl form.
“A few years ago, I started re-examining the filmed archives for Bruce and the Band’s appearances at the No Nukes concerts of 1979,” said Zimny, in a press release. “I quickly realized that these were the best performances and best filming from the Band’s legendary Seventies, and dedicated myself to bringing out the full potential of the footage. Having worked as Bruce’s principal director and editor for the last 20 years, I can say without reservation that this newly re-edited, re-mixed and restored ninety minute film is the gold standard for Bruce and the Band live during one of their greatest creative periods.”
Here is the list of songs:
“Prove It All Night”
“The Promised Land”
“Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)”
“Born to Run”
“Stay” (featuring Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and Rosemary Butler)
“Quarter to Three”
