VisuaLecture by Arlen Schumer on Saturday, April 14th:
“2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's Darkness On The Edge of Town, acknowledged as one of his greatest albums--and September 19th, 2018 will mark the 40th Anniversary of what many consider his and The E Street Band's greatest single show: the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey.
“Why this particular show? Why does it stand out from not only all the other amazing Darkness tour performances, but from Bruce's entire performing career? There are many reasons--and that's what my presentation will be all about.
"I was in the 6th row of the landmark show, 20 years old at the time, and the art director of Thunder Road magazine, the first Springsteen fan publication. My photographer friend took color photographs of the concert, the only color images from the show that exist. I've written about the show over the years, and, in honor of the show's 40th Anniversary, have put together a multi-media lecture presentation that recreates the concert in words, images and music.”
