Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band - 1979 No Nukes Blu-Ray & 2CD

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band 1979 No Nukes Blu-Ray & 2CD

 

The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were recorded at the September 1979 MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

 

This 2 CD set features 13 songs performed over two nights, that are newly remixed and remastered, in addition to a Blu-Ray of the 13 song concert performance film, newly edited from original film footage, restored and remixed in HD.

 

This package includes a 24-page book with rare photos and memorabilia, an essay, vintage ticket envelope and ticket reproduction.

The No Nukes concerts came nine months after the end of Springsteen's breakout tour in support of Darkness On The Edge Of Town in 1978, the year when the legend of Springsteen's marathon shows was born.

 

Bruce and the band were in the Big Apple already to record the follow-up to Darkness and took a break from the sessions to support the worthy cause, organized by Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, and Bonnie Raitt. That support - "for a non-nuclear future" - marked the beginning of Bruce's public activism that continues to this day.

 

When Springsteen and the E Streeters took the Garden stage on September 21 and 22, the country was still not even six months past the worst nuclear accident in U.S. history, the partial meltdown of the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor in Pennsylvania.

 

Along with a sense of urgency for the cause, there was pent-up energy to expend. Following their reputation-making year on the road in '78, MUSE brought Springsteen and the E Street Band back for essentially their only gigs of '79, which seemed to light an additional fire under the performers - and under Springsteen fans too, who flocked to the Garden for this special opportunity. The No Nukes shows also coincided with Bruce's 30th birthday, making the occasion that much more special.

 

More than 40 years later, No Nukes is a chance to witness the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers just six years into their story, on the cusp of superstardom as their live legend grew, based precisely on explosive performances like these, with something to prove all night.
