“Live in Concert” Sunday night from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Hoosiers from all over Indiana, as well as fans from neighboring states like Illinois and Ohio, filled the Deer Creek Music Center, a beautiful outdoor music theater in Noblesville, Indiana, just outside of Indianapolis.
John Mellencamp, fresh off the release of his 11th studio album, “Whenever We Wanted,” took the stage and delivered a legendary performance for the sold-out crowd of over 25,000 fans, including many of John’s friends and family from his home in nearby Bloomington.
After incredible success in the 70’s and 80’s, Bruce Springsteen did the unthinkable. He dissolved the E Street Band and billed himself as a solo act.
Fans were discouraged. Springsteen packed up and left his native New Jersey for southern California. His album sales plummeted. For the first time in his career, Bruce was in a slump. How would he break out of it? Perhaps it was Lennon and McCartney who offered Springsteen the best advice with their Beatles classic- “Get Back to Where You Once Belonged.”
Bruce packed up and moved back to Jersey. After reuniting the E Street Band, fans went berserk. They went out on a world tour, selling out everywhere. On this broadcast of Live in Concert, we’ll go back to the 1999 reunion tour.
We’ll listen to a legendary performance captured live at the United Center in Chicago on the final night of 3 sold-out concerts- September 30, 1999.
Don’t miss this significant moment in Bruce Springsteen’s career- he’s back with the E Street Band and they’re headlining Live in Concert!
