Bruce Springsteen releases legendary 1975 Roxy show

Bruce Springsteen has released a legendary 1975 show at Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre as part of his ongoing archival concert series.

Recorded during a four-night, six-show residency at the famed venue, Springsteen’s early show on October 18 sees the E Street Band deliver a two-hour performance featuring six tracks from the new “Born To Run” album as well as covers of Chuck Berry’s “Carol”, Jackie DeShannon’s “When You Walk In The Room”, and Carole King’s “Goin’ Back”, which is streaming below as the set’s first preview.

Newly mixed from restored multi-track tapes, the previously unreleased complete concert is now available in multiple audio formats via with a CD release due on January 7.

The New Jersey rocker will wrap up his solo “Springsteen On Broadway” residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York on December 15; a film of the same name will be released via Netflix the following day while a companion soundtrack album is set to arrive on December 14.

Springsteen recently made headlines when he took to social media to address speculation that a 2019 tour would follow the Broadway series.

“Just a note to quell some of the rumors over here on E Street,” says Springsteen. “While we hope to be back with you soon, the E Street Band won’t be touring in 2019. Before I go back to my day job, the year will be consumed with a break after our Broadway run and various recording projects I’ve been working on.

“We do hope to see you soon, and until then, we have some mighty E Streeters out there regularly performing with their own projects who’d love and deserve your support. All love and Happy Holidays!”
