Bruce Springsteen fans can get their live Boss fix with an HBO concert special scheduled for April 7.
The special, titled simply "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band" and set to air at 9 p.m. ET, was shot during the final two nights of the band's world tour, which culminated in a 10-show stand at New York's Madison Square Garden, according to a release Tuesday from Shore Fire Media.
No song listing is available, but the July 1 show included the rarely performed "Lost in the Flood," as well as three unrecorded songs, "Code of Silence," "Further on Up the Road" and "American Skin (41 Shots)." The latter song, which addresses the 1999 New York City police shooting of Guinean native Amadou Diallo outside his Bronx apartment building, drew praise from civil rights activists and criticism from New York police.
The June 29 show featured a performance of "The Promise" (RealAudio excerpt), long a favorite of Springsteen bootleg fans, but not released officially until 1999's 18 Tracks.
While "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band" marks the first TV special from an actual Springsteen concert, the Disney Channel broadcast a performance recorded at the Sony Studios in 1995.
In January, Springsteen released two DVDs, "Video Anthology" and "Blood Brothers," a documentary of his reunion with the E Street Band to record new material for his 1995 Greatest Hits collection.
