“Never try to sound like a rapper I raised”
When Bruce Springsteen was announced as the keynote speaker for the 2012 SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas, the addition of a one off, intimate show was inevitable. Not only was this added, but tonight, in front of two thousand or so lucky fans at ACL Live, he brought his sixteen piece E-Street Band along for the ride, in the group's second show in support of new album Wrecking Ball, released March 5th.
The new album is the anticipated follow up to the 2008 album by The Nightwatchman ‘The Fabled City’ and was produced by Morello. The first single ‘Save The Hammer For The Man’ was co-written with Ben Harper and features Harper on vocals and guitar.
