On Nov. 3, the Italian Bruce Springsteen cover band Blood Brothers played The Boss’ new album Letter to You in its entirety, on a stage but without an audience, on a live stream on Facebook. More than 15,000 people watched, the band says.
The 70-minute performance is now available on YouTube, as well, and is embedded below.
The band posted on Facebook, Nov. 2:
Tuesday, November 3, we’ll be back on an empty place stage to enter your homes. We will be performing live all the songs from Bruce Springsteen’s new album “Letter to You.”
A camera will send a signal to heaven and you can seize it to be with us for a night waiting over and over and over for that moment when we hug each other with tears for enduring an inhuman period of social divide, emotional aridity, fear and suspicious.
We Blood Brothers need you and we’re not ashamed to write it.
We feel lonely, forgotten and with little hopes so we’ll have this record for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we’ll try and play it very loud on Tuesday, November 3 behind closed doors.
The band also asked for PayPal donations through this link: paypal.com/paypalme/zerbomusica.

I have followed them for a while now, their live show is always impressive.. unfortunately due to the pandemic, concerts are sadly banned, but this streaming performance of the “Letter to You” album was amazing and so enjoyable for all Bruce fans who were dying to hear these new songs live. Garry Tallent and Ron Aniello heard the news and both commented on Blood Brothers band social profiles “bravo, bellissimo, wow!” . Well done Blood Brothers, way to go!
