As NME and other music services report, Bruce Springsteen has announced details of a huge new Darkness On The Edge Of Town-era box set.
It is actually a 24-disc set that will feature eight full shows from The E Street Band’s 1978 tour in support of the legendary album. The release date is set for February 1, 2021.
According to the official announcement, “eight of the finest performances from Bruce Springsteen’s 1978 tour are now available in a limited, collectible box set.”
“This 24-CD set contains all five of the legendary radio broadcasts on the Darkness tour: The Roxy in L.A., The Agora in Cleveland, The Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ, Fox Theatre in Atlanta, and Winterland in San Francisco.”
“Rounding out the collection are the second shows in Passaic and San Francisco, plus the December 8 show in Houston, Texas. A limited number of empty boxes are also available to hold previously purchased CDs.”
The set follows the release of Springsteen’s latest studio album Letter To You, one of his best releases in recent years. Earlier this December, Springsteen also appeared on Saturday Night Live, where he performed with The E Street Band for their first public performance in four years. Due to coronavirus restrictions, however, not every member of the group was able to be present for the appearance.
