Description

The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts film will feature footage of the band’s entire setlist from the Madison Square Garden MUSE benefit concerts for the first time, including ten never-before-released performances.  The multi-day No Nukes concerts featured a wealth of artists in support of a non-nuclear future, with Springsteen’s performance taking place while recording was underway on album ‘The River’.  These were shot on film and the audio recorded to multi-track tape but have remained in the vaults – until now! Jon Landau says: “The Seventies were a golden period in the history of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and the Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts is the greatest document of that era we will ever have”.

Among the setlist is live staples like ‘Badlands’ and ‘Born To Run’, alongside covers of Buddy Holly’s ‘Rave On’ and a version of Maurice Williams’ ‘Stay’ with special guests Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and Rosemary Butler.  The CD packages includes a 24-page book with rare photos and memorabilia, an essay, vintage ticket envelope, ticket reproduction and sticker.

The audio on the CDs showcases 13 songs performed over two nights, that are newly remixed and mastered, by Bob Clearmountain. Similarly, the film footage has been edited and restored to HD for the blu-ray (the DVD won’t be HD of course).
