Radio Nowhere rocks. But it's The Rising all over again.. Can't Someone put a stop to Brendan O'Brien? I'm happy he isn't mixing the tour sound.

What was wrong with the production of The Rising?

The same as with Radio Nowhere the guitars way to loud....Not saying I don't like screaming guitars but hey He has the ESB for a reason...so might as well use them.

It's not any different from the garage rock featured on The River, if you think about it. Cadillac Ranch, I'm A Rocker, Crush On You, You Can Look, etc. are really all in the same vein. Those guitars were certainly loud.

I'm sure there will be a few songs mixed in that feature more of the E Street Band.

I think The Rising was fine. There was plenty of E Street Band in the mix.

I think the production is similar to "The Rising" the song, with a guitar heavy track. Not the album as a whole.

I don't think the guitars are too loud. Plus for me the more Bruce guitar the better. And I don't think they were that loud on The Rising either but one thing I agree with you, they didn't used the E Street Band much, specially Clarence, on that album. The Rising doesn't sound like the E Street Band is there at all sometimes, with the exception of a few moments where it's clear Max Weinberg drumming. It feels like it's some very good and professional band Bruce put together to play with him. Still that's one of my favorite albums anyway, amazing songwritting. The fact that we hear a saxophone solo on this new single is to me a good indication that this next album might sound more like Bruce Springsteen and The E Street band. Hopefully there will be lots of Little Steve backing vocals, Roy's amazing piano and of course Max's energetic drumming (not to mention C's sax!).

Yes there is a sax solo on Radio Nowhere, however it is drenched by the guitars, and I can't hear Roy Bittan at all....again I don't mind loud guitars, but the other instruments has to stand back to much.

True, I don't hear Roy as much as I would like to either. And I could use more Litte Steven bvs there too.

I'm a lot more excited this time around. The Rising Tour was fine but the material was on the heavy side and this is being described as more of a party album.

It's a fairly brief tour. The question is where else would you see this show outside of Los Angeles? Opening night is in Hartford....not exactly the most ideal place to visit on a road trip (but it is opening night).

Madison Square Garden and a trip to NYC sounds very tempting as does the last U.S. date in Boston.

I don't think it's going to be that way throughout the entire album, and it wasn't on The Rising, either. For example, how long had it been where we got a Danny Federici organ solo before You're Missing? You have to go back to 1980.

I think the production has been fine.

Is it safe to assume there will be another LA (or any southern CA date) on the 2nd leg?

True, you don't hear Roy on this song, but Steve Van Zandt? His background vocals are quite evident on this song, and also reminds me of stuff from The River era, especially the outtakes that later appeared on Tracks.

It's just the first two legs. It will be more extensive as 2008 rolls around.

Martha, you're a genius (this also is reminding me that once upon a time I did used to call TM for tix ). I can (hopefully, depending if my flight is on time, etc.) easily call TM while en route to my hotel.

You seriously rock! I think I'll be ok with the phone, but can I take you up on that offer if for some reason Plan A doesn't work?
