1992-01-00 - ST. CHARLES AVENUE STREETCAR LINE, NEW ORLEANS, LA

1992-02-02 - MAPLE LEAF BAR, NEW ORLEANS, LA

AIN'T THAT A SHAME / SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME / BETTY JEAN

With The Iguanas. Bruce (and Patti) drop in to the New Orleans bar while in town filming the "Human Touch" music video. Iguana's saxophonist Derek Huston tells that Springsteen asked Huston not to introduce him by name. So Bruce instead entered the stage to "Louie". They sing Fats Domino's "Ain't That A Shame", The Drifters' "Save The Last Dance For Me" and Chuck Berry's "Betty Jean".



1992-03-00 - ROY BITTAN'S RECORDING STUDIO, HOLLYWOOD, CA

No set details known. Tryouts for Springsteen new band, held on numerous days in March (exact dates are unknown) at an unidentified Hollywood recording studio partially owned (according to comments by Shane Fontayne) by Roy Bittan. Roy did not try out - he was a definite in the new band and actually participated with Bruce in the tryout sessions of the other would-be members. Shane Fontayne, who had come highly recommended, turned out to be the only guitarist that was given a tryout. Several bass players were given tryouts. Drummer Zack Alford has mentioned in interview that he flew out to California five times during March and early April for tryouts before he was finally told he had the job.



1992-03-00 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

1992-05-06 - BOTTOM LINE, NEW YORK CITY, NY

BETTER DAYS / LOCAL HERO / LUCKY TOWN / IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND / 57 CHANNELS (AND NOTHIN' ON) / THE BIG MUDDY / LIVING PROOF / MY BEAUTIFUL REWARD / LEAP OF FAITH / MAN'S JOB / ROLL OF THE DICE / REAL WORLD / HUMAN TOUCH (with Bobby King) / I WISH I WERE BLIND

The live audience debut (albeit to a private gathering of 250 Sony executives) of the core lineup of Bruce’s new 1992-1993 tour band – Shane Fontayne (guitar), Tommy Sims (bass), Roy Bittan (keyboards), Zack Alford (drums) - along with the just-hired Bobby King (who only came out for support vocals on “Human Touch”). Springsteen opened the 90-minute show by remarking that the new lineup had only been together for two weeks and the performance was indeed ragged in places. “My Beautiful Reward” was the lone song performed acoustically. Patti Scialfa and Steve Van Zandt were in attendance, but did not perform. Springsteen returns to the famous Bottom Line - he was last there in 1976.

No circulating audio. Some pro-shot video circulates.

1992-05-09 - STUDIO 8H, GE BUILDING, ROCKEFELLER CENTER, NEW YORK CITY, NY

Rehearsal: 57 CHANNELS (AND NOTHIN' ON) / LIVING PROOF / 57 CHANNELS (AND NOTHIN' ON) / LIVING PROOF / LUCKY TOWN / LUCKY TOWN

Broadcast: LUCKY TOWN / 57 CHANNELS (AND NOTHIN' ON) / LIVING PROOF

Bruce and the band appear on Saturday Night Live. “57 Channels (And Nothin' On)” is short and as close to the studio version as we’ll ever get – before the remix versions’ inspiration are included in the live versions. Bruce also appeared in two short, humorous promos for the programme (one featuring him and Tom Hanks only, and the second featuring Hanks alongside “Wayne & Garth” a.k.a. Mike Myers & Dana Carvey doing their “we’re-not-worthy” routine) that are circulating among collectors as well.

TV Broadcast on NBC. Soundboard and video exists of both the rehearsals and the show. Show songs are available on CDs 'Saturday Night Live' and 'Gospel's Rain'.

1992-05-20 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

LUCKY TOWN

Band rehearsals with the lineup of Springsteen, Roy Bittan, Shane Fontayne, Tommy Sims, and Zack Alford. Professionally shot video of a single song, "Lucky Town" circulates that was recorded around this time.

1992-05-21 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

THE LONG GOODBYE / BRILLIANT DISGUISE / GLORIA’S EYES

Partial setlist is known. Band rehearsals with the core lineup of Springsteen, Roy Bittan, Shane Fontayne, Tommy Sims, and Zachary Alford. This day’s rehearsals were fairly brief and featured instrumental only renditions of the songs due to Springsteen’s voice being slightly hoarse from the previous day’s rehearsal. Immediately following the rehearsal Bruce gives a backstage interview to David Hepworth of Q magazine, which appeared in its August 1992 issue.



1992-05-23 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

No set details known. Rehearsals for the upcoming tour continue. Crystal Taliefero is hired as vocalist and multi-instrumentalist for the new band.



1992-05-29 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

Final tryouts and hiring of the four female backing singers for the band – Gia Ciambotti, Carol Dennis, Cleopatra Kennedy, and Angel Rogers.



1992-06-01 - HOLLYWOOD CENTER STUDIOS SOUNDSTAGE, HOLLYWOOD, CA

REAL WORLD / BETTER DAYS

No other set details known. First rehearsal together of the entire eleven-person lineup of the 1992-93 touring band – Springsteen-Bittan-Fontayne-Sims-Alford, plus Bobby King and Crystal Taliefero and the four female backing singers, Ciambotti-Dennis-Kennedy-Rogers. Around forty minutes of single camera professionally shot video circulates, featuring extensive workouts of "Real World", a single performance of "Better Days", and a casual interview with Bruce, mainly talking about his guitar and equipment. The rehearsal takes place on a full stage setup with the full band, dating the video to around this date. Bruce's primary focus in this rehearsal appears to be working on arrangements with the new backing singers. In reality, there were likely more rehearsals in the following days so it is almost impossible to pin down the exact day the video was shot. Some of the footage was used later this month on MTV's Guide To Summer, in a feature about Springsteen's upcoming tour.

1992-07-02 - PLAZA MONUMENTAL, BARCELONA, SPAIN

Concert cancelled due to transport strikes in France and rescheduled to July 4. Truck drivers blocked the roads which meant that trucks carrying equipment could not travel to Barcelona from the previous concert in Paris. A local company called Triple Onda were hired to set up a stage along with sound and light systems at the Plaza Monumental. George Travis and people from the local promoter and production company visited the Triple Onda headquarters on July 2 to check the PA systems. They liked what the company had so they decided to use their stage, light and sound systems for the shows in Barcelona. While most of the trucks remained stuck in France, the truck carrying instruments was fortunately able to travel to Barcelona.

Bruce performs for MTV's Unplugged concert series, but after an acoustic "Red Headed Woman" the show is most decidedly plugged in. Final performance of "Book Of Dreams" until 2005. Patti Scialfa joins for "Human Touch". "Leap Of Faith" requires a restart and "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" is played twice. Uniquely, every song from Lucky Town is performed.

Soundboard and professionally shot video of both soundcheck and concert. Released on CDs '57 Channels And Bruce Plugged In' (The Beat Goes On), 'Original Lives' (Musictape), 'I Wish I'll Hear The Thunder' (All About Fame) and 'Plugged' (RP). Soundcheck released on CD 'Plugged: The Rehearsals' (Kiss The Stone). A high quality digital soundboard recording from the production truck emerged in February 2015. This was recorded live, with no edits or post-production and includes "Leap Of Faith" and the false start, for the first time. However, the second take of "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" and "Glory Days" are missing. Officially released – in incomplete form and featuring a totally mixed-up song sequence – in April 1993 on the In Concert/MTV xxPlugged double vinyl/CD album, VHS, US-only laserdisc (with “Roll Of The Dice” as a bonus track) and, most recently on DVD, which also includes “Roll Of The Dice” as its only “extra”. Two additional audio recordings from this show (“Growin’ Up” and “The Big Muddy”) later turned up on the Streets Of Philadelphia CD EP. Video of the complete and unedited MTV performance (apart from "Leap Of Faith") is circulating on a high-quality, fan-made DVD titled 'Plugged And Uncut'. Audio taken from this DVD release is available on CD, with the same title (KBM Keefer). Video footage of "Leap Of Faith" is also available on DVD, but in lower quality from a higher generation tape source.
