Bruce Springsteen Releases ‘East Rutherford 2012’ Live Archival Set


Bruce Springsteen‘s latest live archival release features his concert with the E Street Band at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on September 22, 2012. East Rutherford 2012 is available for purchase in a variety of formats via Live.BruceSpringsteen.Net.

The Boss’ September 22, 2012 concert was the third of three consecutive concerts at MetLife Stadium and was delayed for two hours due to rainstorms in the area. Springsteen tacked the lost time onto the end of a show that ended around 2 a.m. in the morning. The performance took place the night before Bruce’s 63rd birthday, so thanks to the extra time it wound up turning into an impromptu celebration complete with the presentation of a cake and an audience-sung “Happy Birthday To You.”

All told, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band played 34 songs, including a handful of rarities. “Cynthia,” “In The Midnight Hour,” “Into The Fire” and “Meeting Across The River” were each tour debuts. “In The Midnight Hour” was a huge bust out having last been performed on December 31, 1980. The Boss also welcomed old friend Gary U.S. Bands for “Jolé Blon” and “This Little Girl.” Springsteen didn’t ignore the “hits” as “Out In The Street,” “Badlands,” “Thunder Road,” “Born To Run” and “Dancing In The Dark” all made the setlist. There was also a fitting cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Who’ll Stop The Rain.”
