Authorized by Springsteen and written by his biographer Dave Marsh, Bruce Springsteen on Tour is an intimate look at the touring life of one of America's most beloved musicians. Author of the bestsellers Born to Run and Glory Days, Marsh takes us from Bruce's first concert at the Woodhaven Swim Club in Freehold, New Jersey, all the way to his sold-out 2005 Devils & Dust tour.
Seeing Bruce live is an incredible experience for any fan, but sometimes an impossible one. The photographs and artifacts here, along with Marsh's extraordinary behind-the-scenes account, offer the closest thing possible to actually being there. Marsh communicates the exuberance of the music, shows how songs evolve night after night throughout a tour until they take the form we know today, and, most importantly, brings Bruce's immense persona to life on the page. While following Bruce's career, Marsh also illuminates rock's progression from the grubby, amateurish venues of the late 1960s to the giant arenas and intense professionalism of today. Bruce Springsteen on Tour is an amazing, three-decade celebration of one of the greatest live performers of all time.
