This post was inspired by a thread on BTX discussing Prove It with the 78 intro. It started as a conversation about how and where the intro originally came from back in 1978. More pertinently to this thread, it evolved into a discussion about which post 2012 Prove It 78 (which is when it was revived) is the best.
Someone suggested Adelaide 2014, and I thought 'Hey, I waz dere'...
Which inspired this thread. A home for videos of songs from shows you were actually at, maybe with a little story about your memories. Hell, if it's actually your own video, even better, but anything floating around in the ether is welcome.
So, I'll start with a vid (not mine) of said Prove It. My memory of it was that, yes, it was vastly better and more focussed than the other time I heard it in person (Melbourne 2013). But my main abiding reaction to it is 'poor @Daisey Jeep '... poor girl is still hunting a 78 Prove It, and here's myself not that fussed about it either way having seen it twice in my mere six shows.
for the record i think as excitting and raw as it was in 78 and i mean winterland primarly, i think its improved this time around
i love both, and as much as i love NIls i like 78 because the night the best
your a lucky bastard cousin
i missed it by one tour date in Canada
then i got prove it with no bloody intro in Auckland summer 2017
im afarid as much as i love linyc i just dont see the point of prove it with no intro
i think i cried (at least on the inside till i got back to the hotel)
i vividly rememebr waking up2012 and reading on backstreets news when the 78 intro was revivied
i woke the neighbourhod up with my excitment
latter than tour when Bruce came to Aussie (and not NZ) i think he played it in Sydney
possibky a show i may have been at if i could have afforded it
So here .... is the encore from the second favorite Bruce show i ever attended after New Years Eve 1980.......all i ever ask for is some rock and roll covers in the encore .....Something that after the TOL tour became a much rarer occurrence
Kind of a long story ......But Bruce was playing Saturday and Sunday at MSG in 2009...I had tickets to the Saturday show ...and on what i recall was Monday of that week it was announced that Saturday he would be playing WIESS in its entirety and Sunday The River. I was quite crestfallen as i would be missing my all time favorite Bruce album by one night ....
Thank Goodness i was rescued by reasonable tickets from Stub Hub and treated to this fine encore.
My main memory ...Other than risking life and limb dancing like a fool to Seven Nights ...was my wife asking me if i saw the sign ..... When i saw Sweet Soul Music i just could not believe it.... A thrilling Holy Shit moment for me.....
And I Waz Dere 😀
