Status of the Brucetapes Bruce Springsteen fan blog

Why there haven’t been any Bruce Springsteen updates lately?

bruce_springsteen_wrecking_ball_tour 4

No, I haven’t been drinking. Reason why there haven’t been any updates lately:

Well, the Wrecking Ball tour is currently on a break, and I’m simply “Bruced out”. I’m sure that every Bruce Springsteen fan knows the term. I don’t want to force myself to update this site daily, as I’m doing this purely by a hobby. There’s a life outside of Bruceland, and I want to give time for my family too.

Don’t worry. This blog will return when the tour continues, and I’m pretty sure that there will be updates and blog posts before that too. Feel free to send me any missing reviews, articles, photos etc, and I will add them later!

How the Youtube videos get picked

How the Youtube videos get picked to the Bruce Springsteen tour specials:

How the Bruce Springsteen videos to the concert specials gets added: Now that’s a strange formula:

Let’s say that Bruce Springsteen plays at the Helsinki, Finland:

1. Next day pretty much every possible clip from this show gets added (that I can find), after that priority goes to full songs that sounds and look great.

2. Clips are added usually when no full performance can be found. Also superb sounding clips, clips from rare songs, and cool close-up clips from the pit gets added.

3. Distorted clips/videos gets only added when there isn’t anything better available. Distorted videos are always marked as “distorted” (So it’s should be safe to click those links without fear of blowing up your ears…)

4. I’m trying to update all the tour specials when I just have enough time. Priority always goes to the latest gig though. 🙂
