    5Having no expectations, I was gladly surprised !
    By Benjamin
    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.

    5What a great lot of covers
    By Mr. Thomas A. Mckewen
    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.

    5Entertaining! Great covers of Bruce's hits!
    By Jane Austin
    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.
