1999-02-12 - THRILL HILL EAST, RUMSON, NJ

GIVE MY LOVE TO ROSE

Springsteen solo performance of a Johnny Cash song that was simultaneously audio-video recorded. Springsteen produced the audio and Toby Scott recorded it – but the identity of film director is a mystery. First broadcast commercially on April 18, 1999 as part of the Johnny Cash Tribute special on the U.S.A.’s TNT network.

The audio was officially released in September 2002 on the Cash Kindred Spirits tribute album. The video has yet to be officially issued, although it circulates via copies of the original TV broadcast.

1999-03-00 - CONVENTION HALL, ASBURY PARK, NJ

LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS / FURTHER ON (UP THE ROAD) / WAITIN' ON A SUNNY DAY / RESTLESS NIGHTS / THE PRICE YOU PAY / + many others

Springsteen & The E Street Band rehearsals for the upcoming "Reunion" tour. Max Weinberg stated in a late February 1999 interview that rehearsals had not yet started, so it appears that all rehearsals took place during the month of March. However security was tight so exact dates and setlists are unclear. However, the setlists below are accurate. In reviewing original media/fan reports of these rehearsals there are five songs that warrant special mention. Three then-new and previously undocumented Springsteen compositions were rehearsed – “Land Of Hope And Dreams” (it premiered live early in the tour), “Further On (Up The Road)” (it premiered live near the end of the tour) and “Waitin' On A Sunny Day” (sound-checked mid tour but not played in concert). “American Skin (41 Shots)” was not rehearsed in March, as Bruce didn’t write the song until mid-tour. “Restless Nights” is the only song from the Tracks box that is known to have been rehearsed that was not later played at least once on the Reunion tour - it would not be performed in concert until the Working On A Dream tour in 2009. “The Price You Pay” (from the River album) was the notable regular album catalog song that was rehearsed but then not subsequently performed on the 1999-2000 tour.

Both "Waitin' On A Sunny Day" and "Further On (Up The Road)" would eventually be officially released on The Rising in 2002.

The former was run-through at least five times. There will be no more rehearsal sessions before the Hall Of Fame show with a heavy metal show taking over the Convention Hall between March 12 and March 15.

"The River" is a new arrangement with a long introductory sax solo, and a slower, more acoustic style. "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" features the band introductions, as it will throughout the tour. "Light Of Day" includes "I've Been Everywhere", as it will throughout the tour. "Factory" is played for the first time since 1984. E Street premiere for "If I Should Fall Behind".

By June 24, the "Reunion" tour of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band was winding up the European leg of the tour and they were playing hot. One of the highlights from the European tour was the many Tracks songs that were played on a regular basis but didn't get many airings once the tour returned to North America, especially "I Wanna Be With You" and "Loose Ends," both of which were played on June 24 to a very enthusiastic crowd. Many fan favorite songs from the 70s and 80s returned to the set on the 1999-2000 tour, and several of those are represented here, including "Jungleland", "Two Hearts", "Born to Run", and "Thunder Road". But the high point for many long-time fans were the last two songs of the night, "If I Should Fall Behind", which featured Bruce, Steve Van Zandt, Patti Scialfa, Nils Lofgren, and Clarence Clemons sharing vocals, and "Land of Hope and Dreams", a mid-tempo rocker with almost spiritual lyrics. “Factory” is performed as a country-duet with Patti. Other highlights from the tour included the segment from "Youngstown", done in a full-band arrangement."Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" includes "It's All Right", "Move On Up", "Lookin' For A Love", a near-complete rendition of "Fire", and "Rumble Doll", plus Steve playing a snippet of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" for his solo. "Light Of Day" includes "I Hear A Train" and "I've Been Everywhere". Max Weinberg messes up the beat during “Stand On It”. First ever performances in Sweden of "I Wanna Be With You" and "Loose Ends".

Audience tape available on CD 'Stockholm Fire' (Piggham) and on CD 'Olympic Stadium Second Night' (Crystal Cat). The latter is of particularly high quality.

End of the European leg of the "Reunion" tour


1999-07-02 - DISNEY SOUNDSTAGE STUDIOS, NEW YORK CITY, NY

In a Manhattan studio Springsteen makes his first-ever appearance in a feature film (i.e., excluding documentaries and music films/videos), playing himself during a 2-minute dream sequence for the movie High Fidelity. It was the final scene shot for the film. John Cusack, the movie’s co-producer, screenwriter and lead actor, had first contacted Springsteen in 1998 asking him to participate - surprisingly Bruce said “yes” (Bob Dylan, Cusack’s first choice for this role, had declined). In the film Bruce performs a blues riff (copyrighted as "Blues Guitar Riff (High Fidelity)" at the US Copyright Office in 1999) on guitar while talking to the film’s dreaming lead character (Cusack), who ends the conversation with Bruce by saying “Good luck, goodbye” (a spoof of the final line in Springsteen’s song “Bobby Jean”).

The film was released on March 31, 2000.

Concert rescheduled from September 16. Tour premieres of “Growin’ Up”, “Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?” and “The Fever”, last played with the band at the final Darkness tour show. Last known performance of "Blinded By The Light" was in April 1976. “No Surrender” is the full band version. “Badlands” has the ending played twice. “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” includes "It's All Right", two lines of Stevie Wonder's “Happy Birthday”, "Take Me To The River", and "Red Headed Woman", while “Light Of Day” includes “You Can’t Sit Down” and "I've Been Everywhere". Known as "The Birthday Show" as it took place one day after Bruce's 50th birthday, this show was a high point for many, many fans. While the other five shows in Philadelphia on this stand took place at the First Union Center, this show moved 150 yards to the old Spectrum building (now the First Union Spectrum), a venue steeped in Springsteen history (first arena show on October 25, 1976; great shows in 1978, 1981, and 1984). In another twist, this show was supposed to have taken place on September 16, but had to be postponed due to heavy rains caused by a hurricane. So the last two shows of the stand occurred immediately after Bruce Springsteen's fiftieth birthday, and those two shows turned out to be among the best shows of the 1999-2000 tour. Because of the atmosphere and venue, however, this night gets the nod over the September 25 show. Bruce took to the stage with a boom box and played a tape of a song, called "Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-Nine" that was sung by a female fan who had mailed the tape to Bruce's mother. In fact, the song was sung by Carol Bradley, who lived next door to his mother. The band then launched into the tour premiere of "Growin' Up," followed by "No Surrender." Other tour debuts on this night included "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?", "Blinded by the Light," and "The Fever". This was also the first scheduled performance of "The Fever" since the Darkness Tour; while it was played at the January 31, 1998, Pat King Benefit concert, that was totally spontaneous, but it was rehearsed and on the set list for this show.

Audience tape and partial DVD. Audience tape available as 'The Big 50 (I'd Rather Be In Philly!)' (Ev2). This show hasn't been released by a major bootleg label, but a CDR of this show is widely available, and while it's not an amazing recording, the energy and vibe come through nonetheless. Check out "Prove It All Night" for a demonstration.

The "Pink Cadillac" intro was the instrumental, mostly Nils Lofgren on guitar and Max Weinberg on drums, that was played during the '85 stadium tour. Bruce appeared for "Prove It" and sang the hell out of it. The intro to "My Love Will Not Let You Down" was worked on a lot, a real soulful treatment that really added to the show. "The Ghost of Tom Joad" was the full band and excellent. "Born In The U.S.A." was the standard acoustic version.

MY LOVE WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN / PROVE IT ALL NIGHT / TWO HEARTS / DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN / THE PROMISED LAND / MANSION ON THE HILL / THE RIVER / YOUNGSTOWN / MURDER INCORPORATED / BADLANDS / OUT IN THE STREET / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH) / WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / BACKSTREETS / LIGHT OF DAY - CALIFORNIA SUN / RAMROD / BOBBY JEAN / BORN TO RUN / THUNDER ROAD / IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND / LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS

First night of four in Los Angeles, with Bruce and the band the first performers at the brand-new Staples Center. 24-song set opens with "My Love Will Not Let You Down" after the "Meeting In The Town Tonight" introduction, and also includes "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)". "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" includes "It's All Right, "Take Me To The River", and "Red Headed Woman". "Born In The U.S.A." is the acoustic version. "Light Of Day" includes a snippet of "California Sun", with a very funny reference to plastic surgery, and "I've Been Everywhere", plus Steve playing a snippet of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" in the midsection. From a fan present, "I was behind the stage and saw Danny's set list and they dropped out "Brilliant Disguise" after "Working On The Highway" and before "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". It was indented on the list so maybe it was there in case they had enough time.

Show opens with the "Meeting In The Town Tonight" introduction, and the 25-song set includes a beautiful "Racing In The Street" which unusually features Springsteen playing acoustic guitar during an outstanding instrumental coda.

End of the first leg of the "Reunion" tour


1999-12-04 - THE DIASCO RESIDENCE, COLTS NECK, NJ

RED HEADED WOMAN / LUCILLE / TREAT HER RIGHT / OH, PRETTY WOMAN / IT'S ALL OVER NOW / HAVING A PARTY

In June 1999, at a Doug Flutie Autism Foundation fundraising gala held at Jon Bon Jovi’s estate in Middletown, guests Anthony and Pam Diasco paid $60,000 during the evening’s dinner auction for right to host a very private Bon Jovi band concert at their home. The performance took place on December 4 at the Diasco’s estate in Colts Neck. Although Springsteen’s services were not part of June auction, the Diasco’s got a bonus - Bruce (as well as Patti Scialfa and Southside Johnny) attended the December 4 party and Bruce (backed by Bon Jovi) performed the above-noted songs.

No circulating audio.



1999-12-20 - McLOONE'S RUM RUNNER, SEA BRIGHT, NJ

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL / MUSTANG SALLY / PROUD MARY / TRAVELIN' BAND / GREEN RIVER / ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE (Patti Scialfa) / SHE LOVES YOU / A HARD DAY'S NIGHT / PLEASE PLEASE ME / BORN ON THE BAYOU / SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN

Bruce plays his annual Christmas party at McLoone's Rum Runner in Sea Bright, NJ. Though the date is not certain it seems the party took place on December 20, and Bruce joined Bobby Bandiera's band for well over an hour, performing Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival songs among other classics. Patti Scialfa provides the vocals for "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree", which was originally sung by Brenda Lee when first released in 1958.

The first six songs listed above derive from a partial audience tape, and are in performance order. The others are from attendee reports, and may not be in order.
