Tickets at much higher costs than face value were even available at re-sale sites such as StubHub before going on sale to the general public. Fans vented their frustration through Springsteen message boards and his Facebook page. Problems also occurred outside the United States. In Australia, fans complained of ticket scalping and scalpers re-selling for high prices. Unlike in the United States, which has admitted and tried to correct problems with scalping, the entertainment and ticketing industry of Australia claims not to have a scalper or ticket sale problem despite many complaints from fans, who blame corporate scalpers being able to find ways to get the better tickets prior to the public sale.
Many of the tickets have been originally secured by "bots" which buy up allotments via official sellers including Ticketek and Ticketmaster. Gudinski also warned fans to not buy from these outlets that re-sell tickets because some might not be real tickets. On April 4, , HBO aired Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes , a minute documentary on the making of the High Hopes album which featured footage of the band in the studio recording the album along with rehearsals for the tour.

Our reach has been greater than it's ever been before, the audiences have never been greater, and we're looking forward to nothing but more in the future.

This is material from the past decade. Some were demos that I never cut. Europe has been massive for you. It must feel pretty good to be so well received away from home? The shows are very emotionally successful. I guess what I basically feel is that in Europe, rock music as a form for the discussion and expression of ideas and events of the day has retained its currency.
It has done less so in the States. I love playing to them. It may have something to do with the different levels of popularity we have outside of the country at this moment. Bruce Springsteen performs in Perth, Australia.

Mr Mojo Risin , Mar 1, Cobbled together from covers -- of other songwriters along with the Boss himself "American Skin [41 Shots]" and "The Ghost of Tom Joad" are both revived -- and outtakes from the last decade, High Hopes doesn't have the cohesion or gilded surfaces of Wrecking Ball , but neither is it quite a clearinghouse of leftovers.
Inspired in part by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello , who has proven to be a brother in arms to Springsteen , as well as a substitute for Steven Van Zandt in the E-Street Band , High Hopes certainly bears the proud stamp of Morello , both in its workingman's politics and in its cinematic sound.
Much of this record oscillates between the moody and militant, particularly in the politically charged numbers, which are often colored by percussive guitar squalls.
Here, the RATM guitarist often resembles a Nils Lofgren stripped of blues or lyricism -- think of the gusts of noise on "Tunnel of Love" without any melodicism -- and that's a bracing change for Springsteen , who has shown interest in atmospherics but usually when they're coming from keyboards, not six strings.
Such sociological talk suggests High Hopes is nothing but rallying cries and downhearted laments, but the fascinating thing about this unkempt collection is how these protest songs and workingman's anthems are surrounded by intimate tunes, ranging from a cover of the Saints ' latter-day "Just Like Fire Would" to a strangely soothing interpretation of Suicide 's "Dream Baby Dream. There's the rousing Gaelic rock of "This Is Your Sword," sounding a bit like a rejected closing credit theme for The Wire; "Down in the Hole," which rides the same train-track rhythm as "I'm on Fire;" the complicated waltz of "Hunter of Invisible Game," softer and stranger than much of the rest here; "Harry's Place," a bit of synthesized Sopranos noir that sounds much older than its ten years; and the absolutely glorious "Frankie Fell in Love," as open-hearted and romantic a song as Springsteen has ever written.
