    A special by-invitation-only performance of Springsteen on Broadway is set for 3 o'clock or so on Wednesday July 18 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. I know this because my cousin got the invite +1. My cousin got the invite from someone she knows in Bruce's camp. I am not the +1 :( I don't know who will be doing the taping.

    Interesting, the OP said it was being taped all the way above. BTX is a cesspool.

    Now that the Netflix show has been announced I wonder if we'll get an official CD or Nugs audio release?

    Had a listen to a few tracks on Spotify. (I am using this thread as the one about the CD and vinyl release got shut down).

    My first impression is that the stark presentation does highlight Bruce's vocal limitations these days, but then he is almost 70. Still. Nice version of Tougher. I think Patti's vibrato has deteriorated too. She has less control over it (and I know some people could never stand it in the first place).

    I am tending to skip the spoken tracks - I will wait to watch the Netflix version.

    I haven't even received the CD yet but I am already thinking I am unlikely to put it in heavy rotation. I love the Bruce solo releases in the archive series, but this is not a strong entry. YMMV.

    I wouldn't chalk up the gruffness of his voice to his age... I think it's more to do with the nature of this show. Five nights a week, over two hours of singing and talking, often loudly because he tells stories and occasionally sings away from the microphone. I saw the show twice in February, and his voice was decidedly smoother both nights than it is on the recording. But hey, is that what we really go to Bruce for? I'd say his voice is much more elastic and dynamic overall now than it was on the BTR and Darkness tours.

    Netflix special will be up in less than 12 hours. It's set to start streaming at Midnight here in California.
