January 27, 2009 (TAMPA) -- When Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band play the Super Bowl halftime show this Sunday, you can be assured you're hearing it as they're playing it.
Guitarist Nils Lofgren says Springsteen made it clear that they will not record anything in advance. He says that makes the NFL and the networks nervous, but out of respect for Springsteen, that's how it's going to be.
Lofgren says they haven't made a set list yet but he imagines they will play "Born to Run." He says they have 400 songs to choose from and they get only 12 minutes to play, so figuring out transitions to songs is what they'll be doing all this week.
