WESTERN STARS WHETS APPETITE FOR RUMOURED NEW ALBUM
Springsteen’s long-awaited album has been released with talk of a new album with the E Street Band possibly to come in the next few months, followed by a global tour. Wonderful experiences of Bruce in Dublin, Paris, Birmingham, Milton Keynes and London many, many times. These live gigs are to be treasured. So special to have taken my son (aged 12 at the time) to Bruce’s last gig at Wembley.
BLINDED BY THE LIGHT FILM RELEASE
Sarfraz Manzoor’s long-anticipated film ‘Blinded by the Light’ has been released with good reviews. It is based on his book “Greetings from Bury Park” and features Rob Brydon, a long-time Springsteen fan.
NEW BRUCE JUICE DATES ANNOUNCED
New gigs have now been confirmed for St John’s Church in Farncombe, the Half Moon in Putney, Alexander’s Live in Chester, the Earl Haig Club in Cardiff and the Tropic in Ruislip. More dates are to follow in due course.
NEW BRUCE JUICE VIDEO RELEASES
“You Never Can Tell”, “Out in the Street”, and “Action in the Streets” are new videos now out on our Facebook page + a short clip from the “Detroit Medley”. Aiin addition, we have several video clips on our “TRACK LIST” page and also on both Facebook and Instagram with live clips from several Springsteen favourites from three Bruce Juice gigs, including Born to Run, Incident on 57th Street, Rosalita, Rendezvous, Loose Ends, Promised Land, Born in the USA, The River, 10th Avenue Freeze Out and the E Street Shuffle.
On 22nd Sept, Bruce Juice introduced the “Bruce Juice Horn Section” playing brass on ‘Action in the Streets’, ‘You Never Can tell’ and Steve van Zandt’s “I don’t want to go home’, made famous by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. The horn mash-up at the end of Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’ came from a ‘telegram request’ from Leipzig, the most watched live Springsteen video with over 36 million views.
Georgia Mae-White also guested as ‘Patti Scialfa’ providing some great backing vocals, including a memorable slow chorus of ‘Lucky Town’ with the chorus of ‘Shallow’ sandwiched in the middle – virtually the same notes as penned by the Boss decades ago.
JAKE CLEMONS ROARS
Jake Clemons returned to the Academy, Islington with a strong performance on guitar, keyboard and tenor sax. A great live gig, full of energy, backed by strong musicians from Ireland, Canada and the US. Jake puts a lot of himself into his song lyrics and carries the burden of much of the challenges faced in US society today. While there is much to be concerned about, the theme coming through is about sticking together. He then made a point of spending a long time afterwards with all those who came to see him – great to see from someone who really doesn’t have to do that, but listening to his very good album, this is very much part of him, and we see this in his music and performances.
