From the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington on Dec. 7th 2014, here’s Bruce Springsteen singing Sting’s “I Hung My Head”. Notice Shane Fontayne playing the guitar with the backing band. Shane was Bruce’s guitar player in 1992-93 during the Human Touch/Lucky Town tour.
“Good evening and welcome to the WMMS 10th anniversary concert. I’m Kid Leo, and I have the duty and the pleasure of welcoming, ladies and gentlemen, the main event. Round for round, pound for pound, there ain’t no finer band around: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!”
It is here! The legendary show from the Agora Ballrom in Cleveland, originally aired live on the radio in 1978, is now available for download from the Live Bruce Springsteen store. The recording comes from the original 15 inch-per-second half-track reels, which were sent to Plangent for proper remastering, as Toby Scott explains on the liner notes.
No fan should miss this one: Bruce Springsteen at his best on a memorable night. Get it now!
This is the isolated vocal track for Springsteen’s most famous song. Producer and analyst Bobby Owsinski analizes the details in his blog.
In 2009, Springsteen was among those who received the Kennedy Center Honors award in Washington DC, and various artists paid tribute performing his songs, including Sting (with a version of “The Rising”).
On Sunday this year’s honorees were Sting, Al Green, Tom Hanks, Patricia McBride and Lily Tomlin. During the tribute gala Springsteen took the stage with his electric guitar and delivered a version of Sting’s “I Hung My Head”.
The concert was recorded and will air December at 9pm ET/PT on CBS.
