BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND
Giants Stadium 2009 [no label, 6CD]

Live at Giants Stadium, Meadowlands, East Rutherford, NJ; October 2 and 3, 2009. Excellent soundboard stereo.

On a night when you get the full Darkness on the Edge of Town album played, Bruce pulls out a classic Elvis Presley song and the E Street Band is absolutely on top of their game, that combined to make for one pretty damn good show at Giants Stadium on Friday. Hearing Darkness from start to finish made it a classic show of course. This was played much tighter and much better than at the Count Basie Theatre benefit in May of 2008, the only other time the album was played in its entirety.
- Stan Goldstein (nj.com), reviewing the October 2, 2009 show.

Back in 2009, the excitement over these Giants Stadium gigs was that the Darkness On The Edge Of Town and Born In The USA albums were to be played in full. Subsequently, soundboards of the live Darkness and Born In The USA portions were released as bootleg silver discs but for the complete shows, fans had to search out audience recordings. These six discs then is the first time the complete October 2 and 3 shows are presented in soundboard stereo. While the sound is excellent, fans continue to question if these are truly soundboards. Some argue that these are taken from IEMs (in-ear monitors) or could even be IEMs/audience mixes.

What also created a buzz in 2009 was the new song, Wrecking Ball, that was a tribute to the Giants Stadium which was demolished the following year. Wrecking Ball became the title of Springsteen’s 2012 album; and the song together with We Take Care Of Our Own, Shackled And Drawn, Swallowed Up, Land Of Of Hope And Dreams and American Land showed Springsteen tipping his hat to the Occupy movement and finding him among the folks on Main Street.

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing the tracks.

  2. Thanks BigO and LP Mark! I was there Oct 2, it’ll be great to have a first rate copy of the show.

    By Mark E on May 30, 2012

  3. mark e. it`s pretty cool when you have a copy of a show you attended. Some of my favorites are Jeff Beck shows I was at but I have a special spot for one particular johnny winter show I went to .
    I have been to the el Mocambo a number of times and we all know some great shows have come out of there. The Allmans had it right offering discs of their shows as you left, I`m surprised more bands don`t do this, what a great souvenir.

  4. Thank you very much! This is a real treat and I’m very much looking forward to discs three through six.

  5. Awesome, I was at one of the shows, not sure which since I was in the nosebleed section. Reminds me of how I hate stadium shows. Finally get to hear what I missed by being in the bleachers surrounded by a bunch of drunk yahoos singing louder than the sound system.

    I like how you can hear the echo in the quiet sections.

    108 Badlands is cut at the end.

  8. I was at the second show, and wished I was at the first (much prefer Darkness over Born In The USA), so am happy to hear the whole 10/2 show now. I find the echo distracting, though……
