Bruce Springsteen to release ‘No Nukes’ concert film from 1979

Bruce Springsteen is set to release a concert film and album regarding his 1979 ‘No Nukes’ concerts with the E Street Band that took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The film will be released digitally on Nov. 16, with physical editions also containing the album coming Nov. 19.

The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts will contain ten never-before released performances from the concerts and full footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band’s entire setlist. Springsteen uploaded a trailer for the film featuring archival footage from the concerts in high definition.

Longtime Springsteen editor Thom Zimny says in a statement: “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. I quickly realized that these were the best performances and best filming from the band’s legendary ’70s, 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 90-minute film is the gold standard for Bruce and the band live during one of their greatest creative periods.”
