Best of 2016: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band - The River Tour 2016

It's been a bit of a busy year for Bruce Springsteen in 2016. Not only has he been out on tour performing 75 shows (would have been 76 but he pulled out of one in North Carolina) in support of The River Boxset but he's also released all 75 shows via his website, The Christic Institute Shows from 1990, an Autobiography (Born To Run) and a companion CD Chapter and Verse (as well as recording an Audio Book version of the autobiography) and undertaken a Book Tour as well.

I thought instead of picking out one particular show from the Tour that I'd throw together a Playlist spotlighting the whole Tour. So below is that Playlist which does contain a few full shows (see below what shows are on it) and footage or audio from all 75 dates. This should keep you busy for a wee while!

Tour Statistics
Songs Played on Tour.

Whilst during the 1st US of the Tour the band played The River album insequence the remainder of the tour only saw it performed a couple of times. Fans hoping to hear maybe some of the outtakes that were released on The Ties That Bind boxset were to be disappointed as very few of them were actually played.

It's great to have all 75 shows from the Tour as a reminder of firstly what a great album The River is when played live and secondly what an amazing entertainer Bruce Springsteen is with sets each night lasting up to three and a half hours (and a couple breaching the four hour mark!). There's enough music within those 75 shows to keep the average Springsteen fan going until the next tour comes around!
