PBS aired Bruce Tribute, Neil performs “Born in the USA”

Neil Young at Bruce Musicares

The 2013 “A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen” aired for the first time on Friday, Dec. 5 on  National Public Television.

The show ran from 9 p.m. to midnight.

The tribute was in honor of the rock icon’s influence and philanthropy over the years, and subsequently his MusicCares Person of the Year award. Neil plays “Born in the U.S.A.”

PBS used the event as a fund-raiser for public television and sold the CDs.

 

 

 

Here is an all-star line-up finale on “Glory Days.”

 

The 2013 ceremony  did air earlier this year on the AXS TV cable network, and clips from many of the individual performances have been floating around YouTube for awhile.

The lengthy show features 16 Bruce tunes covered by Sting, Elton John, Patti Smith, Neil Young and much more, as well as few songs performed by Springsteen himself.

Many of the performances were amazing. Atlantic City for one, was haunting…
