The legendary finale of the Reunion tour released in full for the first time from a new mix by Jon Altschiller. An emotional closing night at MSG beautifully blends the 1999-2000 tour core setlist with special songs for the occasion, including a solo piano “The Promise,” the tour debut of “Lost in the Flood,” “E Street Shuffle” and a poignant, show-closing “Blood Brothers” performed with a fitting new final verse.  The live Jul 2000 performance of “Blood Brothers” at Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY, during The Reunion Tour. The song was the show closer on this tour finale, and featured a rewritten last verse. As the music settled after the “houses of the dead” verse, Springsteen paused and motioned for everyone not behind a drum kit or keyboard to come to the front of the stage, where they joined hands to form a line, facing the crowd. He sang an entirely new closing verse that surprised everyone and many were moved to tears. The music built back up and the band soared, led by Springsteen’s harmonica and Clarence Clemons’ saxophone, before gently ending the song, the show, the stand, and the tour in an absolutely perfect way.
