5.0 out of 5 stars Great Springsteen covers! March 29, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
This is a set of some very cool Springsteen covers, with Bruce of course finishing the show by himself. Great stuf!! Quality of the blu-ray audio and video is also very high! We need more HD Springsteen blu-rays!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool charity tribute show! "Music is life." - Bruce April 1, 2014
Format:DVD
Very cool show. Bruce is so cool ("it's kind of a freaky experience, the whole thing."). And Jon Stewart as host is perfect (he idolizes Bruce). There is so much good here.

My personal favorite performances are:

ALABAMA SHAKES - "Adam Raised a Cain"
MAVIS STAPLES and ZAC BROWN - "My City of Ruins"
TOM MORELLO and JIM JAMES - "The Ghost of Tom Joad" (Freakin' amazing!)
and all of the Bruce performances, of course. The Big Man, Clarence Clemons' nephew plays sax, btw. That's special.
Oh, and Bruce's speech was pretty damned entertaining too.

Springsteen fans need this in their collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining! Great covers of Bruce's hits! April 5, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure if I would like this, as Bruce only performs at the end. There are great covers of his songs here, I really enjoyed watching the entire tribute concert. Awesome Blu-ray picture and sound quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to Bruce Springsteen May 12, 2014
By fan54
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD tribute to Springsteen met my expectations...of course it is not the same as Bruce performing his songs,but very interesting to listen to the performances by other musicians,most of them very successfull and beautiful.Also nice to see Bruce with family in the audience. As a bonus Bruce himself sings in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great lot of covers May 6, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, I am a Springsteen fan and have all of his stuff (well not the bootlegs) and this tribute to his work is excellent. The last set by the Boss himself is still the best part but some of the treatments of his songs are exceptional (Legend is unreal).

What is really interesting is that lots of the artists are country artists which reinforces the breadth and depth of Bruce's audience and fans. Well worth buying just to hear his speech LOL. Give the man a guitar and he is a god, but as a public speaker it's a hoot.

Highly recommended for anyone who loves good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every minute of watching at any price May 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Not always a fan of tributes but this one was well thought through. Some interpretations that truly open your eyes to the incredible strength of these songs apart from Bruce's performance. Bringing in several country players showed influences I wonder if he was even aware of. And John Legend knocked me out (once again not one of my "go to" guys although I always enjoy him. As usual John Stewart was spot on and kept it moving. Bruce and families reactions were wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This NOW!! April 30, 2014
By Bob
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This 2013 tribute to Bruce Springsteen seems almost more revelant because of "High Hopes" today than last year. The performances are electric. Jackson Browne and Tom Morello performing "American Skin (41 shots), Morello's own performance of "the Ghost of Tom Joad" has evolved, there is a new ending that takes all the fire of previous performances and adds a slight variation to let the listener come down more gently. Neil Young and Crazy Horse burn down "Born in the USA", reminding us Crazy Horse can sing and Neil just goes off on his guitar like no one alive today can do! If you've ever liked anything from Bruce before this Tribute will greatly satisfy. Patti Smith's "Because the Nightl is worth it alone! Place your order now!
