Bruce Springsteen Kicks Off North American Tour with World-Class Performance in Chicago: Review

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

The post Bruce Springsteen Kicks Off North American Tour with World-Class Performance in Chicago: Review appeared first on Consequence .

Oh, you thought Bruce Springsteen was done?

When the applause began, the chords of his first song, “No Surrender,” were still ringing through Chicago’s Wrigley Stadium. Of course Springsteen was done. On the opening night of his North American tour (get tickets here ), after the 73-year-old had played through the usual two verses and choruses, his longtime comrades in the E Street Band paused. Isn’t that what it sounds like when a song finishes — a pause? But as the clapping of some 40,000 people reached its crescendo, The Boss raised his hand, and “No Surrender”came roaring back to life. It was the first of many false endings, as Springsteen thumbed his nose at the very idea that the music should stop.

From “No Surrender” the E Street Band launched straight into “Ghosts” and “Prove It All Night,” while Springsteen never ceased moving. He raised his hands when they weren’t strumming a guitar, paced when he wasn’t rooted to the mic, and rocked his knees rather than stand flat. The first time he even briefly stood still came moments before “Letter to You,” when he swapped guitars with a roadie — an interaction as smooth and well-rehearsed as anything else on stage. The disruption lasted mere seconds before he was back at it. Many artists one-third Springsteen’s age would be gasping for breath, and here he was bounding into his fourth song.

We know younger artists can struggle with their stage stamina because last weekend Chicago hosted Lollapalooza . We watched bands wilt in scorching heat and fight to rouse rain-soaked audiences. We also saw the many tricks musicians use to catch their breath — the video clips, the audience banter, the clever ways to disguise a pause. But all of these things stop the music, which is a problem for Bruce Springsteen. So he avoided the problem by never needing to catch his breath. He may not move a spryly as he did five years ago, but his endurance is world-class.

Springsteen did talk to the audience but in very short bursts, such as asking, “Are you ready for a road trip?” before “Darlington County.” He gave a harmonica to an 11-year-old boy, and a lot of his communication with the crowd was nonverbal. During “Kitty’s Back,” after the E Street Band had taken turns with solos, Springsteen began his guitar part by holding a single note for a comical length of time, all the while wiping his brow as if dying of hard work — a guitar hero dad joke.

He’s clearly having fun even after some 50 years with the E Street Band, shouting “Max!” or “Steve!” to get the audience’s attention before Max Weinberg or Steven Van Zandt did something impressive. As drummer, Weinberg acted a bit as Master of Ceremonies, helping transition between songs and setting the tone with his body language. And Van Zandt remains a delightful ham, shredding on his paisley guitars and mugging for the cameras. Jake Clemons, who has been touring saxophonist since the death of his uncle Clarence Clemons, has emerged as a fan favorite, and got loud cheers at the start of every sax solo.

The E Street Band took one break that might have been longer than all of Springsteen’s little rests combined. In the second half of the set, he gave a longer speech about auditioning for his first band around the age of 15 with his sister’s boyfriend, a boy named George. Many years later, George died of lung cancer, and Springsteen realized that he was the last surviving member of that first band. Before playing “Last Man Standing,” he told the crowd, “Death’s final gift to the living is an expanded awareness of the possibilities of right now.”

The main set ended with a torrid run of “Wrecking Ball” into “The Rising,” “Badlands,” and “Thunder Road.” Springsteen and the E Street Band all joined together and took a bow, but they didn’t leave the stage; didn’t even pretend that the music was over.

The first encore was the wildest portion of the whole night. Things kicked off with a full-stadium rendition of “Born to Run” sung at a volume that was surely audible in Indiana. During “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight),” Bruce and most of the mobile members of the E Street Band, including Van Zandt, Clemons, Nils Lofgren, and Patti Scialfa all danced around a mic stand like it was a maypole.

“Hey Stevie,” Springsteen repeated during “Glory Days,” “Hey Stevie, hey Stevie, hey Stevie, I think it’s time to go home.” Both men soaked in 40,000 or so “Boos!” and got the audience on their feet again for “Dancing in the Dark.” Oh, you thought Springsteen was finished? Crank up the volume for “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out!”

Three hours, 26 songs, no breaks. But the music must stop for all of us, eventually, as Springsteen acknowledged during the second encore: a rendition of “I’ll See You in My Dreams” dedicated to Robbie Robertson, legendary co-founder of The Band who had passed away earlier that day. “Up around the river bend,” Springsteen sang, “For death is not the end/ And I’ll see you in my dreams.”

The Wrigley Field concert ended soon afterwards, though to paraphrase the man himself, the end is not the end. Today, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are one of the most electrifying shows in the world. And the music isn’t stopping any time soon.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announce 2023 tour

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will return to the road in early 2023, launching a series of to-be-announced U.S. arena dates in February, followed by European stadium shows kicking off on April 28 in Barcelona, with a second North American tour leg starting in August.

"After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year. And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year -- and beyond," Springsteen said.

The planned European stops are Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Dusseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich and Monza. Additional cities and shows in the U.K. and Belgium will be announced at a later date.

The 2023 dates will mark the first live shows for Springsteen and the E Street Band since the conclusion of their 14-month, worldwide “The River” tour in Australia in February of 2017. The group last played publicly on “Saturday Night Live” in December 2020, where they performed two songs from their most recent studio album, “Letter to You.”

Last year, Springsteen, who will be 73 when the tour launches, released the group’s “The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts” film, collaborated with former President Barack Obama on the book “Renegades: Born in the USA” and reprised his “Springsteen on Broadway” show to help reopen New York City’s theaters last summer.

The E Street Band’s members are: Roy Bittan — piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren — guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa — guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent — bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt — guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg — drums; with Soozie Tyrell — violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons — saxophone; and Charlie Giordano — keyboards.

Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen dialed in to SiriusXM’s E Street Radio on Tuesday morning (May 24) to chat with host Jim Rotolo about the E Street Band ‘s just-announced 2023 international tour , the first time the legendary act will be on stage together since 2017.

“It’s kind of mind boggling to be honest with you… IT doesn’t feel that long, but,  you know, we stayed busy over that time, but still it’s, I’m really, I’ve got the Jones to play live very badly at this point,” Springsteen said of getting back at it with the band for the first time since they recorded 2020’s Letter to You album. “So, I’m deeply looking forward to getting out there in front of our fans.”

The chat took place just hours after Springsteen announced that the E Street Band will hit the road for their first tour since the 14-month global River Tour that kicked off in 2016.

Given the long break, Springsteen told Rotolo that he’s “aching to play,” but also to travel and see their fans all over the globe. “And feel that life again and see their faces again,” he said of the European stadium tour that will kick off on April 28, 2023 in Barcelona, Spain and include stops in Dublin, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich and Monza. Additional cities and shows in the U.K. and Belgium will be announced at a later date; no U.S. arena dates have been announced, though The Boss did leak a bit of breaking news in the chat.

“We got an old school, you know, tour planned where we’ll be out there for quite a while and give everybody a chance to see us if they’d like to, gonna rehearse in January, start, as you said, in the state’s arenas in February,” he said, hinting that the trek will take them across the U.S. through April before heading overseas to Europe from May-August. That, he said, will be followed by a return to North America for some outdoor summer stadium shows before making their way to Australia and New Zealand “and back around again. So it’s, it’s an old school E Street Band lengthy tour that we’re gonna be involved in. And everybody’s very excited about it.”

It promises to be a happy reunion for the iconic band, who last reconnected to perform two songs from their most recent album, Letter to You , on Saturday Night Live in Dec. 2020. Bruce said he’s already began writing out a set list for the outing and that fans can expect fan favorite hits, plus “a significant amount of some recent material” and possibly some songs from his 2019 SoCal pop music album Western Stars .

“The show should feel contemporary and it should also make you feel at home at the same time. So that’s our goal,” he said, adding, “But you never know something may squeak in there, you know, from that record [ Western Stars ], it’s not impossible. I gotta, that one. I’m gonna have to wait and see.”

The Other Eras Tour: 9 Thoughts on Bruce Springsteen at Madison Square Garden

By Brian Hiatt

Brian Hiatt

After a two-hour-plus main set that slammed home themes of mortality and impermanence and the way of all flesh, Bruce Springsteen reemerged on Madison Square Garden’s stage Saturday night, April 1, for his usual lengthy encore, and announced “something special for New York City.” He pointed over at Soozie Tyrell, who began a dead-on recreation of one of rock’s few canonical violin melodies, over piano from all-time-great arpeggio purveyor Roy Bittan. They eased the E Street Band into the 11-minute-long, 48-year-old mini-rock-opera “Jungleland,” played and sung with enough muscle and drama and soaring perfection to momentarily make the rest of the show’s messages seem like a lie. Death? Impossible. Decline? Not tonight.

Editor’s picks

The 250 greatest guitarists of all time, the 500 greatest albums of all time, the 50 worst decisions in movie history, every awful thing trump has promised to do in a second term.

Still, he could mix it up a bit more. Besides the “Jungleland” addition, there is one near-wildcard slot in the setlist, filled at MSG with his taut-as-ever, if overused over the years, reworking of Jimmy Cliff’s “Trapped” (at the previous stop on the tour, it was “Darkness on the Edge of Town” in that slot, which would’ve been more welcome). In the actual Eras Tour, Taylor Swift has a truly rotating song slot, offering a chance to slip the deepest of cuts into the set every night. With Springsteen’s vast catalog, including the entire, as-yet-unplayed-before-a-paying-audience Western Stars album from 2019 (that title track, one of his best-ever songs, should kill live), slipping in one real obscurity every night certainly couldn’t hurt. There’s other songs, too, including “Johnny 99,” that seem eminently swappable on any given night.

Bruce Springsteen Plots Return to the Road in Spring 2024

Bruce springsteen postpones remaining 2023 tour dates due to peptic ulcer disease, bruce springsteen 'heartbroken' over postponed sept. shows due to peptic ulcer disease symptoms.

Max Weinberg, who has the greatest physical challenge of anyone in the band as a 71-year-old arena-rock drummer, has been preparing for this tour practically since the last one ended in 2017, and his feel, groove, and sense of time seemed subtler than ever. A shades-wearing Garry Tallent was, as always, impossibly locked into Weinberg’s kick drum, even as the arena’s inevitable muddiness sometimes meant he was more felt than heard. It’s always fun to figure out what parts Nils Lofgren — now a simultaneous Crazy Horse member and E Streeter — is adding to the mix, from a fancy rhythm guitar-bit on “No Surrender” to a chops-enhanced version of a guitar break originated by Springsteen on “Rosalita.”

This tour’s extra horns and singers only enhanced the show — with just a couple of exceptions. The horn section, in particular, is most welcome when it’s doing something interesting, which is often, as on the New Orleans breaks of “Johnny 99,” on the twin songs from The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle , and of course “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out.” It only feels superfluous when the players are roped into recapitulating, and almost overpowering, signature riffs during two encore hits, “Dancing in the Dark” and “Glory Days.” 

Jake Clemons is a miracle. Springsteen’s songs evoked ghosts throughout the evening, and Clemons invoked one just in his playing and presence. His big-lunged tenor sax tone has always had an uncanny resemblance to his late uncle Clarence Clemons’ otherwise singular sound. But at the Garden, after more than a decade in the band, Jake sounded more like his late predecessor than ever, even as, at age 43, he continued to bring his own youthful-by-E-Street standards energy to the stage. From the start, the other 21st-century replacement for a departed E Streeter, skilled keyboardist Charlie Giordano, has seemed less wedded to Danny Federici’s organ parts. But then again, Federici himself was rarely wedded to his own studio parts on any given night.

Even if some of the crowd had trouble staying in the moment, Springsteen never did.  He still shut his eyes in utter immersion as he sang “Badlands” for the 1,229th time, and still drew energy from the audience in some eerie yet very real way. (Yes, that number is correct, per Brucebase .) He still has some surprises left on guitar, with his solo on “Kitty’s Back” noticeably straying from his usual harmonic vocabulary to match his horn players’ more adventurous note choices. And his voice continues to do that weird thing where it somehow sounds stronger towards the end of the show than at the beginning.

It’s “sways,” damn it. Newly aware of the mildly ludicrous debate over whether Mary’s dress sways or waves on “Thunder Road,” Springsteen is now singing “sways” with exaggerated clarity and a huge smile.

Illness sidelines Springsteen tour as 3 concerts postponed

SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) — Bruce Springsteen’s planned performance Tuesday in Albany has become the third concert in a week postponed by the New Jersey rocker, who cited illness as the reason in a tweet Sunday but did not give specifics.

The postponements come a month into Springsteen’s first major tour in six years.

“The Boss,” as he is known to his fans, also gave himself and his E Street Band sick days last Thursday when they were to have performed in Columbus, Ohio, and again for a scheduled concert Sunday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Details were lacking in Springsteen’s social media posts. Though the Twitter feed blamed the latest postponement on illness, it did not specify who was ill or what kind of illness was involved.

It merely said: “Due to illness, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s concert at MVP Arena in Albany on Tuesday, March 14 has been postponed. We are working on rescheduling the date so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled show.”

The post made no mention of a major winter storm forecast to hit Albany late Monday.

On Saturday, E Street Band member Little Steven Van Zandt posted an encouraging message about the concert postponements on Twitter, saying: “No need to be anxious or afraid. Nothing serious. Just a temporary situation. We will all be back in full force very soon.”

Springsteen, 73, began the tour on Feb. 1 in Tampa, Florida, before 20,000 fans who mostly stood through the 28-song arena show that included staples like “Born to Run,” “Glory Days,” “Rosalita,” “Promised Land” and “Backstreets.”

In a story last month that began “COVID has come to E Street,” the Asbury Park Press reported that E Street Band members Van Zandt and Soozie Tyrell missed a Feb. 10 show in Dallas.

The newspaper, quoting one of the show spectators, said Springsteen from the stage blamed their absences on COVID-19.

In his Twitter feed at the time, Van Zandt answered a fan who asked why he missed the show with: “Sorry folks. Covid.”

He added that he had “a very mild case,” crediting his vaccines and adding: “No real danger or damage.” He returned to the tour soon afterward.

The setbacks come several months after Springsteen released his latest album, “Only the Strong Survive,” in November.

The famed musician has sold about 140 million albums while winning 20 Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony award in a career that has spanned all or parts of six decades.

The first leg of his U.S. tour is to end with an April 14 homecoming in New Jersey before the band goes abroad starting with an April 28 show in Barcelona, Spain. Springsteen then returns for more U.S. concert dates this summer, including a performance at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and other dates into December.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Boss is back in the swamps of Jersey.

Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band kicked off their mini-MetLife Stadium residency Wednesday with a rapturous and cathartic three-hour concert . It was the first of three nights they’ll spend at the Meadowlands venue, with additional shows on Friday and Sunday.

“Hello, my people! It’s great to be in New Jersey,” Springsteen, 73, proclaimed to the crowd of 50,000 strong, many of whom were decked out in new and vintage tour merch. Some carried signs stating it was their first (or 100 th ) Springsteen show, while one young woman was dressed in a full Little Orphan Annie costume.

The band was in an especially buoyant mood, no doubt fueled by the electricity of the home state audience. Fans whooped as guitarist Nils Lofgren did his signature spin across the stage in “Because the Night,” and they shrieked as Springsteen ripped open his shirt mid-encore. The rock icon frequently interacted with the crowd: tossing guitar picks to two stunned boys and gifting his harmonica to one little girl and her elated mom.

“Nobody wants to go home, man!” Springsteen shouted to guitarist Stevie Van Zandt as they waggishly traded goofy expressions under the floodlights of the stadium and an even brighter supermoon. “Thank you, New Jersey. The E Street Band loves you. Thanks for a beautiful welcome home.”

Here are more standout moments from the night:

'Sherry Darling' is a surprise addition to Bruce Springsteen's setlist

Despite one sign in the crowd reading “Play whatever you want, Bruce,” the band didn’t stray far from the usual setlist on its current tour. Springsteen still slicked his hair back before launching into a blistering guitar solo on “Kitty’s Back,” and he still led the horn section in a joyous dance at the front of the stage to close out “Johnny 99.”

But one major deviation was the addition of “Sherry Darling,” making its tour debut Wednesday. “Here’s a little summer beach music for ya,” Springsteen said as he introduced the shimmering anthem, which is taken from his 1980 album “The River" and hasn't been played with the E Street Band since 2017. The singer playfully leaned into the song’s sunny vibes, at one point doing a hula dance during a guitar break.

'Nightshift' brings the audience to its feet

Last November, Springsteen performed his stirring jazz cover of Commodores’ “Nightshift” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which is taken from his latest album “Only the Strong Survive.” The soulful classic has since become a set-list staple, with a cool trumpet solo by Curt Ramm and glorious harmonies from the E Street Choir. Although many people in the crowd sat down when the song began, no one was still in their seats by the rousing finish.

His musings on mortality are an emotional highlight

For all the euphoric highs of "Born to Run," "Wrecking Ball" and "Prove It All Night," what makes this current tour so special are the moments when Springsteen takes a beat to reflect. Pictures of late E Street members Danny Federici and Clarence Clemons flash across the screen during "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out," before he closes out the show with a haunting acoustic rendition of “I’ll See You in My Dreams.”

Earlier in the night, Springsteen wistfully looks back on his teenage bandmate George Theiss, who died in 2018. The poignant story tees up the heartbreaking double punch of "Last Man Standing" and "Backstreets," which never fail to bring us to tears.

“At 15, it's all hellos, and later on, there's a lot more hard goodbyes,” Springsteen says. Later, he recalls his many mementos of Theiss, and places a hand over his heart. “The rest I’ll carry right here, until the end.”

Bruce Springsteen teases E Street Band tour announcement

springsteen tour news

What's new on E Street?

It appears to be a lot. The social media accounts of Bruce Springsteen shared a 15-second live clip at noon on Monday, May 23, of the modern era E Street Band performing the intro of “Born in the U.S.A.,” with a referral to “May 24, 2022 Brucespringsteen.net” at the end of the vid.

“Oh my sweet Jesus it’s happening,” commented one fan on Twitter.

An announcement of a long-awaited tour would be a reasonable interpretation.

“I just wet myself,” commented another fan.

Update: A tour has been announced.

The Boss said you'll be seeing the E Street Band “pretty soon” on tour during an appearance on Sirius XM's E Street Radio with Jim Rotolo on Wednesday, March 9.

“We're getting our plans for touring together, we'll be out there,” Springsteen said. “We hope to be out there this year. I just didn't have confidence or wanted to take the risk for my audience that it was going to be OK so we put it off for a little while. But we're working on plans to get it all together.”

The last time the E Street Band performed together on stage was Feb. 25, 2017, for the final night of the “The River Tour.”

Then again, it might be a tease for a different announcement.

“Please be a new pro shot concert video!” commented another fan.

Bruce Springsteen tour: Philadelphia show is on after illness

By CBS News Philadelphia Staff

March 16, 2023 / 4:18 PM EDT / CBS Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Good news for Bruce Springsteen fans: the Boss is Born to Run in Philadelphia tonight.

The Boss's concert in Philadelphia looks to be a go.

Springsteen and the E Street Band will be rocking out at the Wells Fargo Center at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

The band postponed the three earlier concerts on the tour -- the most recent on Tuesday in Albany, New York, because of an undisclosed illness.

The other postponed shows were in Columbus, Ohio and Uncasville, Connecticut.

It's not clear if The Boss himself was sick.

There are still some tickets available.

The cheapest tickets we found were for about $300, before fees.

If you can't catch Springsteen in Philly tonight, he recently added two more dates in August .

Bruce Springsteen shares enormity of pain he's in since postponing tour

Bruce Springsteen is sharing more about the brutal health condition that forced him to step away from performing and postpone his remaining 2023 concert dates.

"Greetings, greetings, greetings, from your favorite rock star with a b---- of a bellyache," a lively Springsteen shared with listeners of his SiriusXM E Street Radio show, "From My Home to Yours".

In September, Springsteen began treatment for peptic ulcer disease , colloquially described as a burning stomach pain. The Mayo Clinic defines peptic ulcers as "open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine."

"Let me take a moment and thank my fans affected by our postponed shows for their understanding," he said, per People magazine. "I am deeply sorry but this belly thing, despite my ability to laugh at it, has been a monster and is still unfortunately rocking my internal world."

Issues arose for the Boss in August, when he unexpectedly canceled two of his concerts in Philadelphia. At the time, his team did not disclose what kind of illness Springsteen was suffering from, only that the shows would be rescheduled. All shows in September would later be postponed.

On Sept. 27, Springsteen announced he would not be playing for the remainder of the year.

In a statement to social media, his team shared, "Bruce Springsteen has continued to recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor's advice. With this in mind, and out of an abundance of caution, all remaining 2023 tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be postponed until 2024."

The " Born in the U.S.A " singer said at the time, "Thanks to all my friends and fans for your good wishes, encouragement, and support. I'm on the mend and can't wait to see you all next year."

Tour dates have already been rescheduled, with the first dates taking place in March.

Bruce Springsteen reportedly working on film of the making of ‘Nebraska’

The project is said to involve 'Crazy Heart' director Scott Cooper

Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is reportedly working on a film adaptation of the making of his beloved 1982 studio album ‘Nebraska’.

As noted by Showbiz 411 , the Boss is said to be consulting about the possible film alongside director Scott Cooper, who is known for his films including Out of the Furnace , Black Mass and, most appropriately, Crazy Heart , about a washed-up country singer played by Jeff Bridges .

‘Nebraska’ was Springsteen’s sixth album, and it stands out in his catalogue due to the stripped back nature of the recordings. He was going through a dark psychological period, and had recorded a batch of songs as demos on a 4-track recorder, intending to re-record them with the E Street Band . Ultimately, the singer decided to release the demos as they were.

World of Reel reports that the new film may be based on Warren Zanes’ book Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska .

Back in November, E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt said that Springsteen was on the mend and “in great shape” , after undergoing treatment for a peptic ulcer disease.

“We’re gonna come back stronger than ever in March,” Van Zandt said, referring to Springsteen and the  E Street Band’s tour picking back up in March 2024 .

“It was a very, very intense first six months of the tour — maybe our most intense ever. And so we’re gonna come back with that same intensity, and it’s gonna be great.

Springsteen, 74,  fell ill with a then-undisclosed illness back in August  that resulted in two cancelled Philadelphia shows. Three weeks later,  all of Springsteen’s September tour dates were postponed  when it was revealed that he had been  diagnosed with peptic ulcer disease .

In early October,  he rescheduled the affected US gigs  and confirmed to fans that he’d be embarking on the tour between March and September 2024 instead. You can find any remaining tickets to US shows  here .

The first date of Springsteen’s 2024 UK/Ireland and European tour will be held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff (May 5), before the singer-songwriter heads over to the Boucher Road venue in Belfast (9). Concerts in Kilkenny’s Nowlan Park (12), Cork’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh (16) and Dublin’s Croke Park (19) will follow, as well as a stop at the Stadium Of Light in Sunderland towards the end of the month (22).

From there, The Boss and his band will continue with the new run of European shows before returning to the UK for the two London dates. Find any remaining tickets here .

Lionel Richie on Reliving Recording ‘We Are the World’ for ‘The Greatest Night in Pop’ Doc: ‘Every Segment of This Journey, I Cry’

Lionel Richie Sundance

Lionel Richie has been very emotional lately, but he wants to reassure everyone that he’s okay.

According to Richie, it’s just been a heady experience to look back nearly 40 years and relive all the wondrous and chaotic memories of writing and recording “We Are the World” for the new Netflix documentary “The Greatest Night in Pop.”

It’s especially bittersweet because “Michael’s not here,” Richie added, referring to “We Are the World” co-writer Michael Jackson, who died in 2009. “There should be another guy sitting here going, ‘Lionel, what do you think we’re going to do?'” he said, affecting Jackson’s high-pitched frequency. “I need him here to tell you the funny parts about it because in all of this, we were just two creatives having the best time of our lives pulling from the universe.”

Those intimate memories were precisely what director Bao Nguyen and producer Julia Nottingham aimed to capture in the documentary, which chronicles the incredible story of how the track got made.

On Jan. 25, 1985, 46 music icons — led by Richie, Jackson and Quincy Jones — came together for a marathon eight-hour recording session of “We Are the World” after the American Music Awards. The monumental collaboration was documented for the recording of the music video, but the new documentary includes massive amounts of new material, including retrospective interviews with Richie, Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis, Kenny Loggins, Sheila E., Smokey Robinson, Bruce Springsteen and Dionne Warwick, as well as never-before-heard recordings of Richie and Jackson writing the iconic song.

“The thing that unlocked the documentary was the footage from USA for Africa. They were amazing and had kept all the archive,” Nottingham explained. “Part two, there was a journalist [David Breskin], and he was smart enough to turn his dictaphone on day one. And he didn’t turn it off until they had finished the song.”

“Michael and Lionel writing and just knowing the pressure — that Quincy is knocking on doors, like ‘Where’s the lyrics?’ We all have experienced that … We all can relate to when someone is just pushing a deadline,” Nguyen said. “Then, when we get into the recording studio, there’s so many moments where these icons of American music and pop culture — who are legends, who have sang the most iconic and famous songs — they are scared out of [their] mind for that one night.”

The magic is what happened next: these singular talents, from across all genres of music, morphed into a family.

“Everyone’s helping each other. Everyone’s picking each other up,” Nguyen said. “That was a really beautiful moment that I don’t think people realize when they hear the song. I mean, the song is so beautiful and such like a collective call to unity, but that night was too.”

Looking back on the footage helped Richie remember the uniqueness of the experience. “You actually saw the chaos,” he said. “I forgot about that. It’s like anything else — when you finish a house, you don’t remember that there was a delay on the steps, a delay on the appliances … It was chaos, but it was a beautiful nest of chaos.”
