What has been one of Bruce Springsteen’s most popular bootleg shows is now available legally. The Philadelphia 1999 Live album was released this week.
The show was the culmination of a six-night stand where Springsteen performed at both the historic Spectrum arena and the modern First Union Center. He turned 50 during one of the off-days. Reviews say that every night of the stand had a celebratory vibe and the band played rarely heard tunes like “The Fever,” “Blinded by the Light” and “Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?”
Springsteen has been releasing official bootlegs for the last 6 years. Philadelphia 1999 Live is the newest chapter of his monthly concert download series.
