THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD / ACROSS THE BORDER

Springsteen and his backing band consisting of Danny Federici (keyboards), Jim Hanson (bass), Marty Rifkin (pedal steel) and Gary Mallaber (drums) are recorded and filmed by director Joe Berlinger performing two songs for the upcoming TV documentary Where It's At: The Rolling Stone State Of The Union, a Rolling Stone Magazine 30th Anniversary Special. This was first broadcast on May 21 on the ABC network (later on MTV and VH-1). The short interview with Bruce in the documentary was apparently taped at the same time. This is the live premiere of "full band" versions of both songs.

NEVER BE ENOUGH TIME / TALKING TO THE KING / WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR / HOMESTEAD / CHAIN SMOKIN' / LABOR OF LOVE / MURDER INCORPORATED / IDIOT'S DELIGHT / PUMPING IRON / RAMROD / LIGHT OF DAY - LAND OF 1000 DANCES / AMERICAN BABYLON / BROWN EYED GIRL / DOWN THE ROAD APIECE / REBEL MUSIC

With Joe Grushecky and The Houserockers. A lengthy show that is split into two sets. Bruce does not perform during the first set. However following the intermission Springsteen takes to the stage for the entire second set (the above setlist encompasses that entire second set). Some blistering lead guitar by Springsteen during this performance. "Idiot's Delight" includes a line from "She's About A Mover" in the midsection. “Light Of Day” starts off with a few bars of “Peter Gunn Theme” on the guitar and includes "Land Of 1000 Dances".


1998-04-04 - BAY STREET THEATRE, SAG HARBOR, NY

OH, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNIN' / THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD

Tribute and stage dedication to stage director Elaine Steinbeck (widow of Grapes of Wrath author John Steinbeck). Elaine was present for the show (note: she passed away in 2003). Bruce performed "Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'" early in the show and took the stage again near the end of the evening to perform "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". Springsteen also attended the after-show dinner party. Steinbeck was a redhead and Springsteen later mentioned that he had nearly performed "Red Headed Woman" instead of "Beautiful Morning".


1998-09-20 - THE STONE PONY, ASBURY PARK, NJ

Just to clear up any doubt, Bruce did not play at the Stone Pony's Last Ride. Southside Johnny did join Bobby Bandiera for a hot mini-set (including "The Fever") on a very hot Sunday night.


1998-10-11 - SPRINGSTEEN RESIDENCE, COLTS NECK, NJ

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL / JAMBALAYA (ON THE BAYOU) / MYSTERY TRAIN / ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM / CHICKEN SHACK BOOGIE / RED HEADED WOMAN

Belated outdoor birthday bash for Bruce at his farm property, originally planned for September 23 but had been delayed due to poor weather. As they had the previous year, NYC-based Cajun-roots band The Gotham Playboys (who would form the core of the Sessions Band when they first assembled in the fall of 1998) provide the entertainment. Bruce joins them for several songs (noted above). Party guests include Steven Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Jon Bon Jovi and Sheryl Crow.


1998-10-27 - THE SAINT, ASBURY PARK, NJ

BORN IN THE U.S.A. / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / "BBC BLUES"

Video shoot for the BBC A Secret History documentary. Springsteen is interviewed and performs the solo acoustic "Born In The U.S.A." twice. "BBC Blues" isn't really a song, just Bruce improvising lyrics about being interviewed over a standard Blues progression. Mark Hagen (Producer of the documentary) coined the title "BBC Blues".

The documentary is broadcast on BBC 2 on December 5, 1998, aimed at promoting the Tracks box set. The documentary included plenty of previously unseen video footage, including "Janey Don't You Lose Heart" from Los Angeles on September 27, 1985, "Twist And Shout" from Basel, July 14, 1988 and film from November 18, 1975 at Hammersmith Odeon.

Taping of 20-minute TV interview with Bob Costas, which was first aired on December 6 on NBC’s Dateline. Springsteen brought his acoustic guitar with him to the studio for this interview in anticipation of perhaps playing something (it can be seen next to him in the video) but he ended up not performing. The first stop of Springsteen's brief Tracks promotional tour.


1998-11-20 - WNET STUDIOS, NEW YORK CITY, NY

BORN IN THE U.S.A.

A lengthy (50 minute) TV interview for Charlie Rose, conducted in the early afternoon by journalist Charlie Rose at WNET Studios as part of his syndicated hour-long talk show, which was broadcast later that evening to PBS stations across the U.S.A.. Rose asks thoughtful questions (including about the just-released Tracks box set) and it's widely regarded as of the top Springsteen interviews in any media format. Following the interview Bruce closed the program with a superb solo acoustic rendition of “Born In The U.S.A.”.


1998-12-07 - RADIOEINS STUDIOS, POTSDAM, GERMANY

BORN IN THE U.S.A.

Springsteen is a guest on Germany's Radioeins. He travels to Berlin and gives a 40-minute interview and performs one song for the radio station. The station's studios are located in Potsdam, a city that borders the German capital. Bruce broke two strings while tuning his 12-string guitar and performed the song with only 10. It was during this interview that he first hinted to an upcoming tour with the E Street Band.


1998-12-08 - TV4 STUDIOS, STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

Rehearsal: SAD EYES / BORN IN THE U.S.A.

Broadcast: BORN IN THE U.S.A.

Springsteen is a guest on Swedish TV show Sen kväll Med Luuk (English: "Late Night With Luuk") on TV4. He travels to Stockholm and tapes an interview and a solo performance for the TV show, which was broadcast on December 15. It was during this interview that he first confirmed an upcoming tour with the E Street Band; later that day an official press release from Shore Fire Media confirmed the news.
