Springsteen to release DVD of last year's Dublin shows

Bruce Springsteen is to release a new live album and DVD collated from his shows in Dublin last year.

Entitled “Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band Live In Dublin,” the two-CD set and DVD will be released on June 4.

The Boss played a three-night residency at mammoth Dublin venue The Point last November, promoting his acclaimed tribute album to folk singer Bob Seeger, “We Shall Overcome.”

The 23 songs are taken from the band’s performances in Dublin, Ireland at The Point on November 17, 18 and 19, 2006. Songs include fan favourites from “The Seeger Sessions,” interpretations from the Springsteen songbook. The new album will also feature some rare songs appearing here for the first time on any Springsteen release.

Jon Landau, Springsteen’s longtime manager says: ” ‘Live in Dublin’ charts the development of a band from an informal gathering in Bruce’s living room to an onstage powerhouse. It also documents the growth in Bruce’s vision of American music; it includes folk music, blues, Dixieland, country, swing, gospel, rock, down to and including his own writing. It’s all performed with Bruce’s classic energy and focus. I think it’s some of the finest music he’s ever made.”

Technical stuff: The live double album has been produced by George Travis and edited by Emmy Award winner Thom Zimny, mixed by Bob Clearmountain in 5.1 surround sound and mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Studios.
