Hey, SCL and Leftie!  Glad to see you guys  found your way.  It is bright and cheerful in here.

And by the way, I will not last for the setlist tonight either..... Wink


Looks like the 2nd Anaheim show will be up soon, SCL!!



I am also now the sole seeder on a 2 DVD set on Dime - might just have to enjoy a few days of "it'll never show up" handwringing on the other boards!

Christ, he just keeps pouring it on....


April 14 / Houston, TX / Toyota Center (from backstreets.com)
Notes: Houston, we have... no problems. A phenomenal show tonight for the second of two in Texas. Just outside of Amarillo, the Cadillac Ranch sits there gleaming in the sun... tonight in Houston, that song started us off -- making 11 shows running with a unique opener. A good bit of setlist shuffling followed, one of those nights where things really felt free-form, and you didn't quite know what was coming next: "Gypsy Biker" dropped out for the first time, replaced by "Atlantic City"; "Reason to Believe" was gone, too.

So what made it in? "Out in the Street" -- which has both opened and closed the main set on this leg -- turned up in the middle. "The E Street Shuffle," in its first performance of 2008, was played by request for a kid in the crowd; Bruce said he probably wrote the song before the boy's grandaddy was born. Next up, a world premiere, Bruce saying those magic words: "We haven't done this." It was "Terry's Song," the moving, unlisted track from Magic, played in honor of Terry Magovern. Bruce said, "A friend of mine for 23 years... today would have been his 68th birthday." Roy led it off on the piano, with just Charlie, Max, Bruce on acoustic, and Nils on backing vocals for a sparse and reverential performance. Musically and thematically, it was a powerful lead-in to "Devils Arcade," which found Bruce on his knees to begin the song.

A note-perfect "Thunder Road" closed the set in style after the five-pack, but it was the encore where things really cooked. Not one but two special guests in the encore: at the previous show, Dallas got "a double shot of Jersey" in the form of Jon Bon Jovi, but Houston got a pair of true Texans, both Austinites. "I've always been a fan of the Texas songwriters," said Bruce, and he demonstrated it by playing with two of the best of his Lone Star State contemporaries: Alejandro Escovedo and Joe Ely.

First off, man, what an absolute thrill to finally have Alejandro -- a longtime Backstreets fave -- on stage with the Boss. "He's been putting out good music for so long," Springsteen said, and we agree -- Escovedo's former bands include the Nuns, Rank & File, and the True Believers, and he's been offering up incredible solo records since the early '90s. (Also of note, he very recently signed with Jon Landau Management). For Alejandro, the E Street Band learned "Always a Friend," the lead single from his forthcoming album Real Animal. "One of the best he's ever made," Bruce said, plugging the album twice, "Due June 10th!"

And then, "There's got to be some other Texans around here..." and out came another of our heroes -- Flatlander, Clash tourmate, and all-around bad-ass Joe Ely -- for "All Just to Get to You" (which he and Bruce recorded together on Ely's 1995 album, Letter to Laredo). And it rocked.

With those two barnburners kicking it off, energy stayed high for the rest of the encore, featuring "Rosalita" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-out." For the Freeze-out, Springsteen held a backbend from the mic stand so deep and long you thought he might have actually frozen there; on "Rosie," he was channeling Curly of the Three Stooges: "Whoop-whoop-whoop-whoop!" Couldn't have said it better ourselves. A brain-meltingly good show. Just ask Alejandro, who told Backstreets at the end of the night: "It was my best musical experience, ever."

Now THATS a better choice of guest artist

brings me back to that glorious night in a club in Dublin on St Patricks Day 1996, when Joe Ely brought on you-know-who for a 6-song guest appearance in the encore - an event which saw me go so absolutely batshit that I spent it hanging over the monitor trying to grab his Telecaster.

Maybe I'll try and post some pics from that later.

Interesting read from Houston...http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/life/hoffman/5706922.html

One song touches the heart

By KEN HOFFMAN
Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle

     

There was a raw emotional moment during Bruce Springsteen's concert Monday night at Toyota Center that fans might not have understood.

Introducing Terry's Song, a song Springsteen wrote about the death of his friend and personal assistant for the past 23 years, Frank "Terry" Magovern, Springsteen said, "This song is for the Cox boys, Christopher Cox, Curtis Cox and Timmy, but I'm dedicating it to Ward Cox, number 9."

After the slow, sad song, Springsteen bent to one knee, face down, and held his guitar straight up for 20 seconds.

Toyota Center was silent.

Ward Cox, 16, died last October in a swimming accident in Galveston. He was a student at St. Thomas High School in Houston, one of those kids who seems to know everybody, and whom everybody loved. He wore No. 9 on his football jersey. Twenty-five hundred young people attended his funeral.

"We had no idea that Bruce was going to dedicate that song to Ward. I was hoping he would sing Terry's Song because he had never performed it live before. If you go on YouTube.com, you'll see a video about my son's life with Terry's Song playing in the background. It was an incredible moment, you can't imagine how incredible, when Bruce talked about him," said Tom Cox, a Houston businessman.

Some of the lyrics of Terry's Song:

"Now your death is upon us and we'll return your ashes to the earth

And I know you'll take comfort in knowing you've been roundly blessed and cursed

But love is a power greater than death, just like the songs and stories told

And when she built you, brother, she broke the mold."

"I have a friend who, without me knowing, passed Ward's story to Bruce's people. We got a phone call at 3 p.m. Monday asking if we had tickets to the concert, which we did, and saying there would be backstage passes for us. After the last song, we were escorted back to a room, and Bruce met me, my wife, Anne, and our sons and talked with us for about 30 minutes. He made a line of Houston celebrities wait while he talked to us about our son. I have learned that Bruce takes special interest in stories about people like Ward. I gave him a picture of my son and a bracelet with his name on it. We hugged and left," Tim Cox said.

"It was an unbelievably emotional experience, very powerful and heavy, to know that Bruce Springsteen honored my son from the stage like that. Terry's Song is special; the words have helped my family heal. I've always liked Bruce Springsteen and his music. Now I think of him more as a compassionate human being and a friend."

From Backstreets....

News updated April 17, 2008

DANNY FEDERICI, 1950 - 2008
Danny Federici, the E Street Band's organist and keyboard player since its inception, died this afternoon, April 17, 2008 at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City after a three-year battle with melanoma.

The Federici family and the E Street family request that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Danny Federici Melanoma Fund; more details on the Fund will be forthcoming.

The Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band concerts scheduled for Friday in Ft. Lauderdale and Saturday in Orlando are being postponed. Replacement dates will be announced shortly.


We extend our deepest sympathies to Danny's family, bandmates, and blood brothers; we here at Backstreets, and surely all those fans touched by his spirit, mourn with you.
- April 17, 2008


We were there, in Bahston,  Lefty.  One of his last shows.
Never a more sweeter sounding accordian player.
Keep the good memories of his playing front & center....

A bittersweet memory to be sure, Nellie.
Lots of tears on stage and in the crowd.

Glad that he got a chance to make one last appearance.

Less than a month later, he's gone...

Fuck. Unfortunately the speculation was correct. Danny was indeed quite sick. R.I.P. and best wishes to his family.
