PBS Television to Broadcast Highlights from 'Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band Live in Dublin' Starting June 1st
May 21, 2007
Columbia Records will release 'Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band Live in Dublin' -- a concert DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and separate two-CD set release, as well as a combination DVD/CD package -- on June 5. The two-CD set, DVD and Blu-ray Disc each feature 23 songs drawn from the band's performances in Dublin, Ireland at The Point on November 17, 18 and 19, 2006. Songs include fan favorites from 'The Seeger Sessions,' radical interpretations from the Springsteen songbook and rare songs appearing for the first time on any Springsteen release.
Springsteen's longtime manager Jon Landau said, "'Live in Dublin' charts the development of a band from an informal gathering in Bruce's living room to an onstage powerhouse. It also documents the growth in Bruce's vision of American music; it includes folk music, blues, Dixieland, country, swing, gospel, rock, down to and including his own writing. It's all performed with Bruce's classic energy and focus. I think it's some of the finest music he's ever made."
