Overview

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band: Live In New York City is the name of a concert film done by HBO, featuring the first ever major televised Bruce Springsteen concert. It was later released on DVD with eleven extra songs not televised, and as a CD of the same name. Both the audio and video document Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band's highly successful 1999-2000 Reunion-tour, which was their first concert tour together in eleven years. The film was recorded at concerts on June 29 and July 1, 2000, the final two shows of the Band's ten-show tour-ending performance at Madison Square Garden in New York City. HBO received six Emmy Award nominations (including "Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special") and won two Awards for the film.

"Born to Run" was a late addition to the special. As a result of this, there is a crossfade into and out of the song on the film and DVD and there is a complete fade-out before it on the CD. Also, its placement on the CD (at the end of the first disc, before "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out") was a result of this late decision. It is not listed as a track on the back of some pressings of the CD, but is on all pressings of the DVD. Many new songs were debuted over the final leg of the tour, and two of those were included on this special:

  • "Land of Hope and Dreams", a lengthy American ode. A studio version would not be released until 2012's Wrecking Ball.
  • "American Skin (41 Shots)", a controversial ballad about the shooting of Amadou Diallo. A studio version was released as a rare promo single in 2001. The song was re-recorded in 2013 and released 2014's High Hopes.

Also, many songs on the tour were performed with significant differences from their recorded versions. The songs on this special like that were:

  • "Two Hearts", which included a short cover of Marvin Gaye's "It Takes Two".
  • "Atlantic City" and "Youngstown", were performed as rock songs, with the full band backing Springsteen.
  • "Mansion on the Hill", was also performed with the entire band, but much mellower and softer than the other two.
  • "The River" was performed not on guitar, but as an extended saxophone and piano ballad.
  • "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" was extended to include the band introductions, as well one of Springsteen's monologues and a short cover of Al Green's "Take Me to the River", a portion of "It's All Right" written by Curtis Mayfield and a short version of his own "Red Headed Woman" during Patti Scialfa's intro, afterwards performing a verse from one of her own songs ("Rumble Doll") with the band.

The entire HBO special, plus credits, a photo gallery, and New York City Serenade, a 19-minute documentary about the concerts are present on DVD 1, and the previously unseen performances can be found on DVD 2.
