“We knew we weren’t going to tour,” Springsteen said, “so I was looking for a way to get some of the music live to an audience and so we figured that was the best way to do it. We’re looking forward to getting it to the fans when we can.” Springsteen has done no interviews since Western Stars came out on June 14th and this is the first confirmation that there will be no tour of any kind in support of it.

Bruce Springsteen dug into his archives and has started to upload live performance footage filmed in 1973 to his YouTube channel. Additionally, Springsteen called into SiriusXM’s E Street Radio and revealed a film based on his recently released Western Stars studio album is coming by the end of 2019.

“We made a film of us playing the Western Stars album start to finish, plus some other things,” The Boss said as per Variety. “I knew we weren’t going to tour, so I figured this was the best way to do it.” Springsteen explained the film was directed by longtime collaborator Thom Zimmy. “[The film] is looking good — that will be exciting,” the 69-year-old musician said.

 

On May 1, 1973 Bruce Springsteen and his band played the 2,000-capacity Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles as the opening act for Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show and New Riders of The Purple Sage. The band, which wouldn’t be known as the E Street Band until September of 1974, featured original drummer Vini Lopez as well as saxophonist Clarence Clemons, bassist Garry Tallent and pianist Danny Federici. The Boss unveiled professionally-shot footage of “Spirit In The Night” and “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” from the Ahmanson Theatre concert on YouTube.

“Spirit In The Night” features Springsteen on piano, while “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” sees Bruce playing acoustic guitar. Bruce Springsteen recorded a studio version of the former for inclusion on his 1973 debut album, Greetings From Asbury Park, which came out four months before the concert in Los Angeles. A studio version of “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” would make it onto The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle when the LP was released in November of 1973.

The two songs shared thus far are among six known to be played in L.A. on May 1, 1973 as per BruceBase’s incomplete setlist. Watch “Spirit In The Night” and “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” below:

Oats

"the circus boss leans over and whispers into the little boy’s ear … All aboard, Parsippany's our next stop"

and that's the untold story of how a Circus troup dropped off John Oats on Smith Road January 12. 1974. His parent's were so happy to see him after six months touring the midwest. Missy Bimbo was last seen crying in her trailer.

Still In Love with All the Wonder it Brings

My first Bruce show was in Montreal on Friday, January 23, 1981.

I cannot verify, but I have read that this concert is the first ever filmed completely in colour, from a distance by a very amateur bootlegger. Clips of all songs are on You Tube.

It was a life changing moment for me. I was almost 19. 46 days earlier, on December 8, 1980, I lost my guru when John was killed.

A few hours before the show, my friend took a picture of me standing in front of some graffiti that read "John Lennon 1940-1980."

That night, I found my new guru.
