On September 11, The Twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York and part of the Pentagon in Washington, were attacked and destroyed by terrorist activity. Many innocent people lost their lives in the blackest day I can remember. My, and My country's heart, soul and love goes out to all those who have lost loved ones and colleagues. -- John, founder of Brucebase.



2001-09-21 - SONY MUSIC STUDIOS, NEW YORK CITY, NY

MY CITY OF RUINS

Bruce opens a national telethon, "America: A Tribute to Heroes," with the song he played for another city last December and last month, "My City of Ruins." His acoustic guitar and harmonica are the only instruments used in the performance, but Bruce was joined by Steven Van Zandt, Patti Scialfa, Clarence Clemons, Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, Dee Holmes, and Layonne Holmes on backing vocals in a very moving rendition. The telethon features many musicians and actors in three different cities, with actors describing heroic efforts by ordinary people during the September 11th tragedies.

Officially released on the America: A Tribute To Heroes two-CD set and DVD issued only a few weeks after the actual telethon; with either format listing Bruce’s song as "My City Of Ruin".

First night of this year's Christmas concerts. Multiple guests and a fantastic setlist. The entire E Street Band except Roy Bittan and Steve Van Zandt joins the Max Weinberg 7 as the band. “Something” and “My Sweet Lord” is played by Bruce as a tribute to George Harrison who passed away recently. “Jam Up” is Max Weinberg 7 at full tilt. “Santa Claus, Santa Claus” includes Bruce, Jimmy Vivino and Max Weinberg 7. "Thundercrack" is next up, last known to have been played in Austin, TX at the Armadillo World Headquarters in March 1974. "Seaside Bar Song" follows, previously played in June 1973, some 28 years ago. “Love (Stand Up)” and “Spanish Dancer” are Patti’s spotlight. “Welcome To The World” and "New York Skyline” are Garland Jeffreys' contributions. Then Southside gets three slots before Nils does the next two. Bruce drives it home from there with Bobby Bandiera doing a solo acoustic “Here Comes The Sun” and Southside sharing lead on “I Don’t Want To Go Home”. Otherwise quite similar to last years show.

DECK THE HALLS (The Miami Horns) - WILD BILLY'S CIRCUS STORY / JINGLE BELL ROCK (with Patti Scialfa, Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, and the Max Weinberg 7 from here) / JAM UP (Max Weinberg 7) / CHRISTMAS DAY (Jimmy Vivino and Bruce) / THUNDERCRACK / SEASIDE BAR SONG / LOVE (STAND UP) (Patti Scialfa) / SPANISH DANCER (Patti Scialfa) / WELCOME TO THE WORLD (with Garland Jeffreys and the Alliance Choir) / NEW YORK SKYLINE (with Garland Jeffreys and the Alliance Choir) / THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL (with Southside Johnny) / TALK TO ME (with Southside Johnny) / IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME (with Southside Johnny) / BLACK BOOKS (Nils Lofgren) / SHINE SILENTLY (Nils Lofgren) / MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY / THE E STREET SHUFFLE / KITTY'S BACK / CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME) / MY CITY OF RUINS / HERE COMES THE SUN (Bobby Bandiera) / I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME (with Southside Johnny) / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN

The full E Street Band minus Roy Bittan and Steve Van Zandt, is again present. Much the same as last night, but Bruce kicks off with a great “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” (with Garry Tallent on tuba!) – and “gets the crowd to count along, 95, 96, 97…” “Talk To Me” replaces “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town” in Southside Johnny’s slot, sung together with Bruce. “The E Street Shuffle” replaces “So Young And In Love”. "Here Comes The Sun" is again Bobby Bandiera solo acoustic.

2001-12-06 - CONVENTION HALL, ASBURY PARK, NJ

HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS (South Community Choir of Asbury Park) / I'VE GOT A FEELING (EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT) (South Community Choir of Asbury Park with Bruce) / JINGLE BELL ROCK (with Patti Scialfa, Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, and the Max Weinberg 7 from here) / JAM UP (Max Weinberg 7) / CHRISTMAS DAY (Jimmy Vivino and Bruce) / THUNDERCRACK / SEASIDE BAR SONG / LOVE (STAND UP) (Patti Scialfa) / SPANISH DANCER (Patti Scialfa) / WELCOME TO THE WORLD (with Garland Jeffreys and the Alliance Choir) / NEW YORK SKYLINE (with Garland Jeffreys and the Alliance Choir) / THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL (with Southside Johnny) / TALK TO ME (with Southside Johnny) / IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME (with Southside Johnny) / SHINE SILENTLY (Nils Lofgren) / IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND (Nils Lofgren and Bruce) / MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY / THE E STREET SHUFFLE - MOVE ON UP / KITTY'S BACK / CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME) / MY CITY OF RUINS / HERE COMES THE SUN (Bobby Bandiera) / I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME (with Southside Johnny) / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN

The South Community Choir of Asbury Park kicks things off with two songs, for the second of which features Bruce joins on guitar and vocals. It's worth noting that the Prodigal Son recording lacks the two choir songs in order to fit the show on two CDs. The full E Street Band, minus Roy Bittan and Steve Van Zandt, is again present. "Here Comes The Sun" is again Bobby Bandiera solo acoustic.

Audience tape and excellent soundboard. The soundboard recording is available on CDR 'Uber Series #6', remastered as CDR 'Prodigal Son Meets the Ubers #3' (Prodigal Son) and CD 'Sold Out Night' (Crystal Cat).

2001-12-07 - CONVENTION HALL, ASBURY PARK, NJ

DECK THE HALLS (The Miami Horns) - INCIDENT ON 57TH STREET (with Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell) / JINGLE BELL ROCK (with Patti Scialfa, Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, and the Max Weinberg 7 from here) / JAM UP (Max Weinberg 7) / CHRISTMAS DAY (Jimmy Vivino and Bruce) / THUNDERCRACK / SEASIDE BAR SONG / LOVE (STAND UP) (Patti Scialfa) / SPANISH DANCER (Patti Scialfa) / O COME, ALL YE FAITHFUL - JINGLE BELLS - SPIDER FINGERS (with Bruce Hornsby) / THE END OF THE INNOCENCE (with Bruce Hornsby) / YOU SEXY THING (with Bruce Hornsby) / THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL (with Southside Johnny) / THIS TIME BABY'S GONE FOR GOOD (with Southside Johnny) / IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME (with Southside Johnny) / THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER (Nils Lofgren) / IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND (Nils Lofgren and Bruce) / MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY / SO YOUNG AND IN LOVE / KITTY'S BACK / CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME) / MY CITY OF RUINS / HERE COMES THE SUN (Bobby Bandiera) / I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME (with Southside Johnny) / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN

It’s time to rearrange the set list again; “Deck The Halls” with the horn section kicks it off. "Incident On 57th Street" is almost like going back to February 1975 - Suki Lahav is replaced by Soozie Tyrell. “Jingle Bell Rock” starts off acoustically country style before the whole assembly turns it into New Orleans Christmas. A new artist enters the stage replacing Garland Jeffreys; Bruce Hornsby does “Spider Fingers” introduced by “O Come, All Ye Faithful” before doing Don Henley's “The End Of The Innocence” together with Bruce. “You Sexy Thing” is introduced as “one of the great accordion songs, the song that made the accordion famous”. “Baby’s Gone For Good” replaces “Talk To Me” during Southside Johnny’s slot, Nils Lofgren does an acoustic version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before “If I Should Fall Behind”, close to the version Bruce recorded back in 1992 adding a horn part. “So Young And In Love” returns and replaces “The E Street Shuffle”. The full E Street Band, minus Roy Bittan and Steve Van Zandt, is again present. "Here Comes The Sun" is again Bobby Bandiera solo acoustic.

Audience tape released on CD 'Jingle Bell Night' (Crystal Cat).

Three and one half hours of total, all out Christmas spirit - great show. The Southern Community Choir Of Asbury Park returns for two songs, so does Garland Jeffreys. Bruce Hornsby does his things again, and to top it off; Elvis Costello and Bruce duets "Allison" (My Aim Is True) including “Tracks Of My Tears” and “Tears Of A Clown”. “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town” returns for Southside Johnny, Nils Lofgren does “Shine Silently” and “If I Should Fall Behind”. “The E Street Shuffle” including “Move On Up” in the end part returns. Costello and Jon Landau join for "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)". Nils Lofgren does the solo acoustic “Here Comes The Sun”, because “Bobby Bandiera is out there making a living somewhere”. The full E Street Band, minus Roy Bittan and Steve Van Zandt, is again present, however.

Audience tape available on 'Big, Big Christmas Show' (Ev2), various rips of the Sirus FM stream also circulate (Bossman284).
