publish date: 2017-10-19
Whereas the E Street Band guitarist past work has been politically focused, his latest Little Steven solo set, 'Soulfire,' is full of what he calls "spiritual nourishment."
Steven Van Zandt was on stage Tuedsay at The Roxy in West Hollywood, California, with his 15-piece band The Disciples of Soul preparing for their concert there later that evening.
Of course, he’d been there before. His history with the famous club goes back more than 40 years when Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band blew away Los Angelenos in two legendary shows at the ventue exactly 42 years ago to the day.
On Tuesday night, Van Zandt was playing a private party for music supervisors organized by Universal Music Publishing Group, who handle his catalog, and Universal Music Enterprises, which released his latest Little Steven solo set, Soulfire, earlier this year via Van Zandt’s label, Wicked Cool and B.g.Machine. He and his band are on a tour behind Soulfire that runs through Dec. 2, including another Los Angeles show Thursday (Oct. 19) at the Orpheum.
