Don't know about you in LA. However, I'm not surprised the shows in the Detroit area took awhile to sell out. IMHO, it's because Michigan has one of the worst economies in the country. Some people just can't afford to go out.

However, there are those of us who will pay the (ticket) price. I hope we're on the stadium tour; I'd gladly pay some of my last dollars to see Bruce at Comerica Park again.

I'm telling you - the Sports Arena was packed on Monday night. Yes, maybe a couple of scattered seats here and there. We thought we could move from one set of nosebleed seats to another closer area, but they were full too.

I'd seem him again

The sweet young thang next to me paid 70 bucks for his $95 ticket. There were plenty of extra seats available Tuesday.

Springsteen Album Banned by Clear Channel

Magic Refused Radio Play

Bruce Springsteen should be very happy. He has the No. 1 album, a possible Grammy for Best Album of the Year for "Magic," an album full of singles and a sold-out concert tour.

Alas, there’s a hitch: Radio will not play "Magic." In fact, sources tell me that Clear Channel has sent an edict to its classic rock stations not to play tracks from "Magic." But it’s OK to play old Springsteen tracks such as "Dancing in the Dark," "Born to Run" and "Born in the USA."

Just no new songs by Springsteen, even though it’s likely many radio listeners already own the album and would like to hear it mixed in with the junk offered on radio.

Why? One theory, says a longtime rock insider, "is that the audience knows those songs. Of course, they’ll never know these songs if no one plays them."

"Magic," by the way, has sold more than 500,000 copies since its release on Oct. 2 and likely will hit the million mark. That’s not a small achievement these days, and one that should be embraced by Clear Channel.

But what a situation: The No. 1 album is not being played on any radio stations, according to Radio & Records, which monitors such things. Nothing. The rock songs aren’t on rock radio, and the two standout "mellow" tracks — "Magic" and "Devil’s Arcade" — aren’t even on "lite" stations.

The singles-kinda hits, "Radio Nowhere" and "Living in the Future" — which would have been hits no questions asked in the '70s, '80s and maybe even the '90s, also are absent from Top 40.

What to do? Columbia Records is said to be readying a remixed version of "The Girls in their Summer Clothes," a poppy Beach Boys-type track that has such a catchy hook fans were singing along to it at live shows before they had the album. Bruce insiders are hopeful that with a push from Sony, "Girls" will triumph.

I’m not so sure.

Clear Channel seems to have sent a clear message to other radio outlets that at age 58, Springsteen simply is too old to be played on rock stations. This completely absurd notion is one of many ways Clear Channel has done more to destroy the music business than downloading over the last 10 years. It’s certainly what’s helped create satellite radio, where Springsteen is a staple and even has his own channel on Sirius.

It’s not just Springsteen. There is no sign at major radio stations of new albums by John Fogerty or Annie Lennox, either. The same stations that should be playing Santana’s new singles with Chad Kroeger or Tina Turner are avoiding them, too.

Like Springsteen, these "older" artists have been relegated to something called Triple A format stations — i.e. either college radio or small artsy stations such as WFUV in the Bronx, N.Y., which are immune from the Clear Channel virus of pre-programming and where the number of plays per song is a fraction of what it is on commercial radio.


- It probably won't matter to anyone, but I'm boycotting Clear Channel stations here in NYC line Q104.3, Z-100 and Lite-FM. I just don't want to put up with censorship of music artists.

reminds me of the time i emailed the local "alternative rock" station a couple of years ago asking why they rarely play any U2, and nothing from "Bomb."

one DJ wrote me back saying they are widely considered as "old."

this is a station that prides itself on
NOT being clear-channel.

I hate censorship too, but this isn't a matter of censorship. It's a matter of discrimination(against 'old' artists) and ignorance(of the fact that 40+ is NOT equal to 'old' and that age has no bearing on the ability to create quality music) and the combination of the two, but not censorship.

I'm assuming this was put in Zoo Station by mistake. There is a Springsteen thread there.

Looks like it might be Fox News

I've hated Clear Channel for years.

Clear Channgel = Owns and operates more than 1200 radio stations in the United States, stages live shows at thousands of venues in dozens of countries,... aka EVIL EMPIRE

This non-radio airplay has been happening for years, and it really pisses me off. I can't ever hear new stuff. I remember learning about a band several years ago thru airplay, and when the band put out their second album, the station that turned me on to it in the first place never played it. I'd call & request it, but they said they didn't even have a copy. And I'm sure they never played anything from the band's 3rd release either. I'd protest or sign a petition. The only way I've learned about bands has basically been from this forum.

And I do believe KLOS in L.A. has played the new Bruce, even if only Jim Ladd's show, which he can play ANYTHING he wants. And he's a fan of Fogerty and the old school, and will play that stuff. However, outside of his show, which airs on weeknights from around 8:00pm-1:00am (I think, it's been a while), the same old shit gets played, so I gave up listening, and either play my CDs or occasionally sports radio

And to the person who IM'd me earlier, THANK YOU

TONIGHT!!

Planning on getting to the venue around 1pm to get in the GA line. Ah, the memories...the last time I queued for a long period of time for a concert was U2 in 2005.
