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!

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.

This was a great show and I'm so glad that they made it available for us fans. Several wonderful version of Bruce's songs, the Boss himself doing a few songs and we hear his wonderful acceptance speech. Lots of fun.

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.

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.

I am a huge Springsteen fan. I honestly did not think any other singers could do justice to his work, but this proves me wrong. The songs were well matched to the singers, was very well done and topped off by having the Boss perform at the end; and to see him get honored with his wife, mother and daughter present was special.

I bought this blu-ray having no expectations at all. I am just a long time Bruce fan somewhat disappointed by the way his career has turned. I played this show and I was hooked since the very beginning. I will admit I usually like covers, and in this case, I did like absolutely all of the tracks. Most of them are 4 stars or higher, and for my personal taste, the only two things I did not like that much were Emmylou Harris 'My Hometown,' and Mavis Staples singing in 'My City of Ruins' (the song, though, is top notch with a great Zac Brown and a very powerful gospel choir and excellent instrumentation throughout). I am sure every viewer will have his/her own picks. For me, the better moments of the night were Patti Smith's 'Because the Night' (so full of emotion, and beautifully sung), Mumford & Sons' 'I'm on Fire' (what a surprise, and what a great quartet these guys are!), Tom Morello & Jim James' 'The Ghost of Tom Joad' (I just LOVE Morello!!!!!). I also enjoyed Kenny Chesney's 'One Step Up' (that song is one of my personal favorites, and he did a great job!), and Juanes' 'Hungry Heart' (I was really surprised how he mixed Spanish and English, and the great rhythm he gave to the song hit). I was not very happy with Neil Young's 'Born in the U.S.A.' version, but I guess people think otherwise, considering the reaction (by the way, it is so freaking funny to see Neil Young 'playing' drums at the very end of the show, with the 'Glory Days' cast ensemble version!).
Because this was a TV show, you get the talking, the Springsteen reactions to his songs (this is very well captured, priceless for example when Patti Smith was on stage), and Bruce's speech, which I knew thanks to youtube and that you can have here for ever. A very good indeed speech Boss!
I give this 4.5 stars without hesitation, and I recommend it to anybody who likes Bruce or rock concerts.

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.

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!

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.
