ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Haven't really had a chance to watch ....But looks like it might be a really good video !!!!
Bruce's movement is noticeably so much slower than even as recently as in any 2014 video you may watch. (It was noticeable in person, too, comparing the Adelaide 2017 show to the 2014 ones).
But his voice on this performance is incredible in parts. And his guitar playing is strong also. I can forego the physical performance energy (albeit sadly) so long as the voice and musical game Bruce and the band brings is at this kind of level.
Check out the Backstreets near the start of the encore... it might just be the video quality suggesting something that isn't there, but Bruce, Stevie and Roy are all invested to the point they appear visibly moved.
And we may bemoan the standard Dancing In The Dark encore shenanigans, but I was grinning like a loon when the 9 year old kid with the blow up guitar comes on stage. Bruce's face when he tosses the plastic guitar over his shoulder is priceless.
That acoustic Long Walk Home is something else, too.. 'fuck Trump' indeed (and he hadn't even been elected yet).
I just watched pretty much all of this today. The video quality varies throughout, although all of it is watchable. I never purchased this show via Nugs, but I guess I've heard it now as this has to be the official recording dubbed for the audio.
Some great performances here. I suggest watching it ASAP, assuming it is the official audio being used I expect the You Tube police won't be far away...
