Bruce Springsteen has announced that he will be releasing a new concert film later this year documenting one of his most legendary shows.
Back in September 1979, the blue-collar rocker took to the stage with his E Street Band for a performance in conjunction with Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE).
MUSE was founded by the folk legends Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt and John Hall as well as the activist Harvey Wasserman. The organisation was concerned with the use of nuclear energy owing to the potential the governments could use to mines uranium for weaponised purposes.
Thus, in order to raise awareness, MUSE set up five giant shows at Madison Square Garden, including an iconic ‘No Nukes’ show by Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen. During the set, he rattled through early favourites like ‘Rosalita’ and ‘Thunder Road’.
Now, Springsteen and his E Street Bands performances will be released in a forthcoming concert film entitled The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts.
The film features freshly remixed and remastered audio imposed on the original 16mm footage recorded by Thom Zimmy. As of yet, no official release date has accompanied the announcement, but more is expected soon.
