Movie Details

In 2006, Bruce Springsteen released We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, in which he and a handful of musicians played loose, rollicking but inspired interpretations of classic folk songs made popular by legendary singer and activist Pete Seeger. Springsteen supported the release of the album with a world tour in which he was joined by a seventeen-piece band drawn from the players who helped record the album, and Bruce Springsteen and the Sessions Band: Live In Dublin was drawn from high-definition video footage shot during the final dates of the tour, a three-night stand in Dublin. The program includes selections from the We Will Overcome album (among them "Old Dan Tucker", "Mrs. McGrath", "Pay Me My Money Down" and "Eyes On The Prize"), new arrangements of classic Springsteen songs (such as "Atlantic City", "Open All Night", "Blinded By The Light" and "Highway Patrolman") and other tunes worked up specifically for the tour (the new Springsteen original "American Land" and a revised version of the classic "How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live"). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
