    no firm date but Q4 of this year would certainly make a lot of sense and cents$$$$

    MSG DVD UPDATE (8/9)
    Sources say that work has been completed on the upcoming DVD configuration of the "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band" concert film, now expanded from its original airing on HBO to comprise 25 tracks in all, on two DVDs.
    First, we should stress that the contents of the DVD set have not been officially announced-- and until they are (hell, even after they are), the whole thing is subject to change at a moment's notice. You don't have to look too far back in the past to find a perfect example of last-minute changes-- anyone remember a little something called "Live in New York City"?
    Bearing that in mind, here's how the DVD stands at the moment: Disc one of the set contains the HBO presentation (14 songs) in its entirety. Disc two collects 11 more songs filmed at Madison Square Garden, including the six bonus tracks from the live album, plus five more. Disc two, as currently sequenced:
    Backstreets
    Don't Look Back
    Darkness on the Edge of Town
    Lost in the Flood
    Born in the U.S.A.
    Jungleland
    Light of Day
    The Promise
    Thunder Road
    Ramrod
    If I Should Fall Behind
    Conspicuously absent are the other new songs (besides "American Skin") performed at the Garden, as well as other faves like "The Promised Land" and "Blood Brothers." But at least some of that ground will be somewhat covered on the DVD set's additional bonus material. The set is slated to include a brief documentary about the New York performances, to feature Springsteen interview footage with Bob Costas, interviews with bandmembers, and substantial snippets of performances not among the 25 full tracks-- including "The Ghost of Tom Joad," "Back in Your Arms," and "Blood Brothers." A BBC documentary previously considered for the DVD has since been dropped.
    Again, the above should be considered tentative for now, as is the expected late-October release date. We'll keep this page updated with any further developments and, of course, word of the official announcement as soon as it comes.
