The film will be released worldwide this November.
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s iconic 1979 No Nukes shows will be released as a concert film in November.
The film, titled The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts, features performances by The Boss and The E Street Band from the Madison Square Garden MUSE benefit concerts. It includes full footage of the band’s setlist from that period.
The film was edited by Springsteen’s longtime collaborator Thom Zimny and captures “the highest quality and best recorded Bruce Springsteen performances from an explosive, ascendant and rarely-filmed era of the E Street Band.”
The film will be released in physical formats on November 19th and will be available for digital download on November 16th and digital rental on November 23rd.
"A few years ago, I started re-examining the filmed archives for Bruce and the Band’s appearances at the No Nukes concerts of 1979," said Thom Zimny.
"I quickly realized that these were the best performances and best filming from the Band’s legendary Seventies, and dedicated myself to bringing out the full potential of the footage.
"Having worked as Bruce’s principal director and editor for the last 20 years, I can say without reservation that this newly re-edited, re-mixed and restored ninety minute film is the gold standard for Bruce and the Band live during one of their greatest creative periods,” he added.
When talking about the film, Jon Kilik who worked as a cameraman for the shows and wrote the liner notes for the release said:
"Magic was in the air. The energy on stage and from the crowd was beyond measure and description.”
“The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts were captured while Springsteen and the E Street Band were in the midst of recording The River and just after the conclusion of their breakout 1978 Darkness Tour, marking a rare chance to witness the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers comprehensively in the heart of their reputation-making rise,” he added.
