THE Aaron Setlist Grid Files
CONTRIBUTIONS AND CORRECTIONS TO Aaron who has kindly allowed Brucebase to host these datasets.
These grids represent the ‘formal’ tours, as best as they can be defined, and do not include club dates or other informal one-off shows.
Because it is difficult to discern between distinct tours (e.g., Greetings vs. The Wild, Innocent…) and informal performances, the Setlist Grid files prior to 1976 contain all of the known performances by Bruce Springsteen and his various bands as recorded in Brucebase, including in-studio radio performances, rescheduled gigs, etc.
The ‘Song Notes’ footnotes for each setlist grid are not complete but provide information on particular versions of songs played for a given night, where such information has been confirmed on Brucebase or via personal recordings.
Some songs are contained as snippets within a song (e.g., ‘Shout’ during ‘A Love So Fine’ from 1975) and may be listed in the footnotes. In other cases, these snippets are included as separate songs.
The pdf files are for those who don’t have excel – Adobe Acrobat reader can be downloaded for free from www.adobe.com. Both the Excel and the ‘pdf’ files can be manipulated to print at any size – as downloaded the pdf files will print on 1 to 3 pages depending on the size. These are works in progress; any comments/questions/corrections can be emailed to Aaron.
