And I don't mean to be offensive. But really, you're being petulant. He's playing 80 shows in a very small theater; the kind of theater best suited for this intimate show. If it the tickets were $10, it would still be unlikely that you'd get a ticket. The demand far outstrips the supply. He's only playing for 80,000 seats. That's one show at Giants Stadium. Get over it. Three nights as Citizens Bank Park is about 6 times as many people who will see this show over 80 nights. You aren't getting in the door, no matter what the price. Unless you want him to play this show for ten years. Get over it. And enjoy the beautiful recording that is available in all the usual places.
Thanks for caring. But I am very chill. It's been a nice weekend. I spent part of it listening to half of the show on one recording, before I realized there was an even better recording already on the street. And so I listened to the second half of the show with much better results. I have to admit, your post about no recordings prompted me to go search. Voila! Thanks!
But seriously, there are 950 people in the audience. When there are 50,000 in a baseball park, there are probably a half-dozen tapers hard at work. That's about 1 taper for every 8-10k fans. I'm not surprised that he played multiple shows before a few tapes started to trickle out. I guess you figure there are thousands of us who tape shows. There aren't. Certainly not all congregated in NYC. Add metal detectors and ushers who are very watchful, and you get what you get.
You looked for evidence (few tapes) to support your hypothesis that no real fans are going to these shows - as Aesop probably would have. But in truth, the evidence supports another hypothesis. A) it's hard to tape on Broadway, and B) there aren't all that many tapers in the first place.
I'm sure next is the comment that "these recordings don't sound that good anyway." I'll save you the time.
I am amazed that there are that many tapers at a Met Life Stadium Boss gig when you can just pay and get a quality soundboard at the official site without all the worries of getting caught. Taping a concert is work, and it involves a lot of risk if you want decent sound. I have no interest in downloading Springsteen gigs anymore when I know I can get them legitimately and without the risk of putting spyware on my PC. Eventually all these legendary gigs are going to get released.
