Saturday Bruce

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band appeared Friday morning on NBC's Today Show, with seven songs performed live, outside at New York's Rockefeller Plaza.

The clip below is Radio Nowhere:

MSNBC video has the entire Bruce Springsteen Today Show concert set, including Promised Land, Long Walk Home, Last to Die, Living in the Future, My Hometown, Radio Nowhere and Night.

C&L also has video from the show, Livin’ In the Future, introduced by Springsteen, as follows:

“This is a song called Livin’ In the Future. But it’s really about what’s happening now. Right now. It’s kind of about how the things we love about America, cheeseburgers, French fries, the Yankees battlin’ Boston… the Bill of Rights [holds up microphone, urging crowd to cheer] … v-twin motorcycles… Tim Russert’s haircut, trans-fats and the Jersey Shore… we love those things the way womenfolk love Matt Lauer.

But over the past six years we’ve had to add to the American picture: rendition, illegal wiretapping, voter suppression, no habeus corpus, the neglect of our great city New Orleans and its people, an attack on the Constitution. And the loss of our young best men and women in a tragic war.

This is a song about things that shouldn’t happen here—happening here.”
