Bruce Springsteen has released a live album from his archive of recordings to raise funds for hurricane relief efforts.
The Born to Run rocker, 67, has put a recording of his 1978 gig with the E Street Band at The Summit venue in Houston, Texas on sale to raise funds for the MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund.
Houston was one of the city’s hardest hit when Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas last month, causing widespread flooding.
The live album will be available in various formats, with the cheapest MP3 version retailing for $9.95 , while CDs cost $23 . They are available to order from Bruce’s website.
It is the first time the concert has been available as an audio album, although a film of the gig was released as part of a 2010 DVD boxset.
Hurricane Harvey marked the beginning of a particularly devastating hurricane season for the U.S. and Caribbean, as Hurricane Irma also struck Florida after ravaging islands including Barbuda and Puerto Rico.
Another hurricane strength storm, Maria, made landfall in Puerto Rico on Wednesday.
Celebrities have taken action to help those affected, with Celine Dion asking fans attending her Las Vegas shows to donate to the American Red Cross, while Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Timberlake all took part in a charity telethon earlier this month.
In 2012 Bruce led fundraising efforts when his native New Jersey was hit by Hurricane Sandy, performing at a star-studded benefit concert.
