Bruce Springsteen announced the release of a new archival live recording, Philadelphia 1999. As the title suggests, the live album features Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band’s Reunion Tour concert at First Union Center in Philadelphia on September 25, 1999.

The performance was part of a six-night run in Philadelphia and saw Springsteen joined by E Street Band members Danny Federici and Roy Bittan on keyboards, Clarence Clemons on saxophone, Nils Lofgren, Stevie Van Zandt and Patti Scialfa on guitar, Garry Tallent on bass and Max Weinberg on drums, with multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Soozie Tyrell and backing vocalists Curtis King and Cindy Mizelle. The night began with the show-opening bust out of “Incident On 57th Street, which had not been played since December 1980. The concert also featured the rarity “New York City Serenade” that had recently ended a 24-year setlist absence.
