Bruce Springsteen releases 1999 live album, ‘Streets of Philadelphia’

A live recording featuring Springsteen’s E Street Band.

Bruce Springsteen has surprise-released Streets of Philadelphia, a live album of his 1999 concert at Philadelphia’s First Union Center.

Streets of Philadelphia was recorded with Springsteen’s iconic E Street Band on September 25, 1999, during the singer’s six-night residency at the city’s arena. It includes hits such as “Born to Run,” “Thunder Road” and the title track. The album previously circulated in the bootleg market among diehard fans, but has not been released in an official capacity until now.

Earlier in May, the rock icon also dropped another live album—a July 9, 1981 concert recorded in New Jersey’s  Brendan Byrne Arena. Sales from that LP went directly to the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.

Last year, Springsteen released his 19th studio album, Western Stars, which was his first new body of work in five years. The 13-track record included the songs “Hello Sunshine,” “There Goes My Miracle” and “Tucson Train.” It was also coupled with a promotional film of the same name that featured live performances from Springsteen and his band.
