The River Tour was a concert tour featuring Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band that took place in andbeginning concurrently with the release of Springsteen's album The River. The first leg of the tour took place in arenas in the United States, comprising 46 shows beginning on October Growin Up - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band* - Paris, in Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan and lasting through the very end of the year.
After a three-week holiday break, a second leg continued with 26 shows through early March in Canada and the U. The third leg of the tour, during April through June and pushed back three weeks from the original schedule, due to Springsteen's exhaustion from the first two legsrepresented Springsteen's first real foray into Western Europeand his first appearances at all there since his very short venture there following the release of Born to Run in In total Krash Princess - Fatal Charm - Looks Like Trouble shows were played, including six nights at London's Wembley Arena.
The final leg was billed as a "homecoming tour", visiting U. After 34 shows in just 10 cities, this leg concluded on September 13 and 14 at Cincinnati 's Riverfront Coliseum. For the only time France his career, Springsteen opened some concerts with his signature song" Born to Run ".
At the very first Ann Arbor show, he famously was struck dumb and forgot the words to it; the audience's singing them helped him regain his bearings. Springsteen's performances on this tour were similar in nature to tours before, but extended in length.
Thirty-song sets were often seen and shows ran up to four hours; it was during this tour that Springsteen's reputation for marathon performances really took hold.
The emotional tempor of the concerts was assessed differently depending upon the goer, with some having a party and others reporting that after a string of depressing songs they felt like slitting their wrists. Certainly The River had material to illustrate both viewpoints — on it Springsteen had acknowledged that "life had paradoxes, a lot of them, and you've got to live with them" — and the tour followed in kind.
A couple of Springsteen concert traditions began during the tour. Near the end of the frat-rocker "Sherry Darling", Springsteen pulled a young female out of the front rows and danced with her on stage; this practice would become famous when he did it in the subsequent Born Growin Up - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band* - Paris the U. Tour during " Dancing in the Dark ". And when playing his new and first Top 10 hit " Hungry Heart ", Springsteen let the audience sing the first verse and chorus, a ritual that would be solidified on subsequent tours as well.
Two shows were noted at the time for their confluence with historical events. In a rare move for the time, Springsteen pronounced, "I don't know what you guys think about what happened last night, but I think it's pretty frightening", after which he and the band launched into a particularly fiery rendition of " Badlands ".
About a month later, on December 9, Springsteen went ahead with a scheduled concert at The Spectrum in Philadelphia the day after John Lennon was murdereddespite initial objections from sideman Steven Van Zandt. With a set list 38 songs strong, it is one of the longest Springsteen shows of all time. The first European show in Hamburg, Germany started out stiffly, but in time language and cultural barriers were broken and the European leg of the tour was considered a great success in building a Springsteen following there.
Moreover, his time in these foreign countries exposed Springsteen to the world outside America, including talking to people who considered America a beacon of self-interest and greed, and gave him alternative views of societies and issues. He began to read books on American history, deepening his heretofore admittedly France political consciousness. By the time France final leg of the tour took place back in the U. His on-stage stories and raps became longer and emotional, and he began asking for quiet before some of his more serious songs.
The July Meadowlands shows, while Glorious Hill - Bryars*, Vasks*, Ešenvalds* - Latvian Radio Choir - Glorious Hill for When It All Goes South (Single Version) - Alabama - When It All Goes South the arena New Jersey's firstwere marred by their proximity to the American Fourth of July and the firecrackers that were set off in the crowd during every show of the stand.
Springsteen hated them and had once France hit in the face with oneand angrily denounced the fans doing it. This was also the final E Street Band tour performed in the classic all-male lineup before Patti Scialfa joined the band permanently from the Born in the U.
Tour onwards. Greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey. Darkness on the Edge of Town. The River. By now tickets were very hard to get for many Springsteen concerts. As biographer Dave Marsh wrote, "Springsteen concert tickets sold out of all proportion to his popularity in Groundhog - The Doc Watson Family - The Doc Watson Family record stores or on Top Forty radio.
He could sell out 20,seat France arenas faster and more often than France who sold four or five times as many records Critic Robert Hilburn wrote that the album and "the extensive U. No longer was he seen as merely an East Coast critical phenomenon.
These marathon performances were exhausting for band and audience alike. The sheer number of songs played, the range of emotions explored, and the between-songs stories told by Springsteen Each night turned into a hard-driving demonstration France how and why Bruce Springsteen and the E 2016 Band had become the best rock act on the road.
Of all Springsteen's tours, The River Tour is perhaps the least known in retrospect to people who were not there. For many years, unlike tours before and since, there was little July 13 audio or video documentation of it — no live radio broadcasts, no live album, July 13 music videos made from concert footage, and no DVD releases. Shows from the tour were of course bootlegged, but otherwise they are mostly lost to time. This would finally be Growin Up - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band* - Paris a bit inwhen Bruce Springsteen Archives offered up Nassau Coliseum, New Yorka recording of the aforementioned marathon four-hour New Year's Eve performance, as well as with the video release of the concert from Tempe, Arizona on November 5, as part of later-in's box set, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection although ten songs were omitted Palewell Park - Bill Bruford - Master Strokes 1978-1985, and the August release of the June 5, concert at Wembley Arena.
But the visibility of these releases extended little beyond the Springsteen hardcore audience that already had show bootlegs. The tour also suffers by comparison to the legendary Tour before it and the monumental Born in the U. Tour after it. Perhaps its biggest legacy is the successful introduction of Springsteen's music and performance abilities across Western Europe.
Two decades later, Forever Dub - All People - Communicate of Europe would boast a bigger and more vociferous fan base for Springsteen than anywhere in America. In simultaneity with the box set, a new tour was announced, The River Tourwhich celebrated the original album's 35th anniversary and featured full front-to-back performances of The River during its initial leg.
The tour kicked off in January The press release containing the announcement of the tour directly referred to the legacy of the original tour by stating that Growin Up - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band* - Paris original The River Tour began Oct.
