Watch Bruce Springsteen Go RamRoddin' in 'River' Box Set Preview
Springsteen fans: are you ready to go Ramroddin'?
35 years to the day of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's legendary show in Tempe, Arizona, the Boss is giving fans a blast of rock and roll with a clip of the group performing "Ramrod" on The River tour.
The video is from the forthcoming box set: The Ties That Bind: The River Collection. The 2 hour and 40 minute concert film features 24 songs on two DVDs.
In it, Springsteen playfully adjusts a microphone chord before launching into the joyous song, calling out to "Big Man" Clarence Clemons for a fun romp on the stage. .
Prior to the release of the box set, there will be two preview screenings of the documentary, The Ties That Bind, that will include special appearances by director Thom Zimney and producer Zachary Russo. The first one will be at New York City's SVA Theatre 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14.
Zimney will also be the special guest speaker at Monmouth University's Pollak Theatre in West Long Branch, New Jersey at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17. Presented by The Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection, Zimney will also present a special one-hour preview of the concert film.
The band has been having fun on Twitter looking back at the footage in anticipation of the box set's Dec. 4 release. Guitarist Steven Van Zandt wrote, "Man if I only knew I was that good looking back then I would have had even more fun!"
Springsteen will appear at The Theater Madison Square Garden at the Stand Up for Heroes Veterans Fundraiser on Nov. 10, and at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles to play the Shining A Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America on Nov. 18.
