Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Live in Gothenburg Sweden 6.22.03


After The Rising was released, Springsteen took the E Street Band on the road for what turned out to be a 15 month, multi-leg world tour.  I saw at least 6 shows on the tour - not including the private rehearsal I snuck into and the night I spent listening outside Fenway Park - and I personally saw the shows evolve.  Early in the tour the shows were somber but intense.  I was there when the tour pulled into New York City's Madison Square Garden for what was an emotional night - not the party you normally expect at an E Street Band show.  But as the tour went on, the shows loosened up.  Much of the Rising material was still in the set - "Into The Fire", "The Rising", "Lonesome Day", "My City Of Ruins", "Worlds Apart", etc - but more of the hits, rarities and covers were back in the set.  This was quintessential Springsteen.

By the time the band rolled into Gothenburg Sweden's Ullevi Stadium - a building the band famously nearly tore down (literally) in 1985 - they were a well-oiled machine, and the shows were 3+ hour marathons.  The second night at the 50,000+ capacity Ullevi Stadium featured a standard set, plus rarities like "Jackson Cage", "Racing In The Street", "Detroit Medley" and a 12-minute cover of "Twist & Shout".  The show was captured in the form of a pristine audience recording which has been circulating for years.  An equally pristine soundboard recording has surfaced more recently.  I took the liberty of mixing the two recordings which results in an absolutely incredible recording.  This is pretty much as close as you'll get to official-release sound quality.  Enjoy and please share!
