It seems Bruce Springsteen was even too rock’n’roll for MTV Unplugged.

Today as we celebrate 24 years since his history making performance we look back at that incredible show.

The infamous 90s TV special, that would showcase bands and musicians such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam in an ‘unplugged’ setting made waves when Bruce Springsteen came in.

The 1992 performance that was the first MTV Unplugged that was full electric, renaming the series ‘In Concert/ MTV Plugged (Live)’ just for Bruce.


Only ‘the boss’ can get away with a 9 piece band, change the show name and rock it out heavier that any other act.

Listen to the full performance:


We are excited to be presenting Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s return to Australia.
