This week marks the release of Bruce Springsteen's 17th studio album, "Wrecking Ball." The album features the E Street Band and one of Clarence Clemons' final recorded sax solos. Clemons died in June 2011 and is being replaced in the live band by his nephew. Lyrically, the album has been described as Springsteen's angriest yet. In the track "Shackled and Drawn," Springsteen sings: "Gambling man rolls the dice. Workingman pays the bill. It’s still fat and easy up on banker’s hill. Up on banker’s hill, the party’s going strong. Down here below we’re shackled and drawn." Springsteen's special performance Friday evening at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem is being broadcast live across the nation on SiriusXM Radio.

The Black Keys & Arctic Monkeys team up for a killer double bill at Madison Square Garden. Akron duo The Black Keys are touring behind their seventh album, "El Camino," and the hit blues/soul hybrid single "Lonely Boy".
The Arctic Monkeys are one of the UK's most successful indie rock bands — all their four albums have been chart-toppers there, including the latest "Suck It & See" which was released in 2011. The album title is a reference to graffiti in a scene from Stanley Kubrick's film "A Clockwork Orange." Their latest single is "R U Mine?"
