Our latest ep is now out! More on the US ticket sales for the 2023 @springsteen Tour. We look at Verified Fan & also discuss how bands like @PearlJam and @U2 effectively use fan clubs. Next week, we will have a new mini-ep with reaction to today’s archive release from NJ 8/19/84.

Hey Springsteen friends, I’ve cancelled my Labor Day trip to NYC to save for The 2023 E Street Tour of Dreams & so have three Jason Isbell (NYC 9/1-2, Asbury 9/3) & 1 Southside (Asbury 9/4) to sell. Let me know if interested. Sad I can’t make such a great weekend but…priorities.

For #FirstFriday , the Live Archive series takes us back 38 years to the summer of ’84 in NJ, with the fourth release from that ten-night Meadowlands Arena stand. August 19 was the penultimate show, with the Miami Horns guesting. @KSmolen1230 reports:

So many facets to the #springsteen ticketing furor — currently reading through Letters to the Editor to post, we're seeing frustrated fans coming at it from multiple angles. In this thread, ICYMI, Tony makes great points about the "cheap seats":

A #ticket 🧵on Springsteen: In the last 25 years I estimate that I have seen about 700 concerts & well over 1,000 performances. I’ve written professionally about a slew of these shows, I’ve bought tickets during pre sales, regular on sales, day-of, & in the parking lot. 1/

“The ensuing dust-up has laid bare the growing divisions between many artists and their audiences, between the 1 percenters who can afford tickets and the die-hard, less fortunate fans, who increasingly can’t.” — ⁦ @allisonstewart6 ⁩ ⁦

I learned a bit listening to this brief overview on how dynamic pricing will continue to impact more than just tickets. Not a good trend. Thx for including a sound byte from the dazed shell that was me last week. I have since rallied. 🙂 @thebenjamieson

“We’re here tonight because what we need to do we can’t do by ourselves,” Springsteen has proselytized in onstage in the past. “We need you. We need *you*.” @swosahla for @AmericanaHiways : When the Promise Is Broken: Springsteen & Us

Hear #AtlanticCity , one of our favorite versions, played this night in 1984 at #JoeLouisArena . Thirty-eight years on, it still sounds glorious. Thanks, Doc. #RIP #tapernumberone #motorcity
