Bruce Springsteen releases archival New Year’s Eve 1980 concert

Bruce Springsteen has released a New Year’s Eve 1980 show from the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY as the fourth offering in his new archival concert series.

The package features the 38-song concert, which clocks in at almost 4 hours in length – typical of shows from the era and the tour in support of his 1980 double album, “The River.”

The complete concert is now available for download in high resolution 24 bit / 192 kHz formats, as well as CD-quality and MP3 downloads; it is also available for pre-order as a 3 CD set, shipping late April.

Full details are available at

Springsteen launched the archival series last November with a 2012 live set from New York’s Apollo Theater on the opening night of his tour in support of “Wrecking Ball.”

December brought the release of a legendary 1978 Cleveland club show at The Agora, and last month Springsteen issued a New Year’s 1975 concert from The Tower Theater in Philadelphia – the last night of his “Born To Run” tour.
