I have a question about the opening 3 nights of 1988 The Tunnel Tour in Worcester, Massachusetts and extant audience videos. Brucebase listings don’t jive with what I have long held to thought to be true. (no pun)
Can someone out there ‘definitively’ tell me what AUDIENCE videos exist and either - commonly circulate or - are KNOWN to exist in the UBER non-trading world? The second half of the first night from stage left (facing from the audience) I believe is absolutely accurate. But Brucebase infers video from the 2nd night and none from the 3rd night’s performance. ??? Either or both nights, circulating, known to exist? I always understood there was video from night 3 but none from night 2.
Note: The circulating 6 minute single camera pro snippet showing the end of Tunnel Of Love and first verse of Brilliant Disguise from opening night, that also contains short footage of Bruce exiting his hotel, mingling with fans and quickly driving off, I am very aware of. I can confirm it’s authenticity, it having come off a 3/4” media pool camera dub belonging to the old Channel 7 in Boston, with the station’s cameraman filming outside the hotel. I released it decades ago (not circulated it, released it) to a very small group of friends and collectors as a little gift with very specific strict instructions of “DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH THIS”. Hopefully, it opened some collecting doors for them. 😊. The 3/4 ‘master’ dub still sits on shelf somewhere in my basement.
