If You Haven't Seen Bruce Springsteen Live, Buy a Ticket Right Now
Tuesday night, Bruce Springsteen opened up a two-night stint at Fenway Park. The Boss played a killer set, featuring 29 songs that lasted three and a half hours, concluding with a fireworks show and a cover of The Isley Brothers "Twist and Shout."
I've been to my fair share of concerts, from Dave Matthews Band to Guster, Zac Brown Band, Dispatch, Roger Waters, Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright and State Radio. Never have I ever seen a show with as much energy, and a band have as much fun as Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band did last night.
The Wrecking Ball tour has been going since mid-March, and will continue until early December. The band featured six songs from that new CD, plus old favorites that no one gets tired of listening to. The encore featured "Born to Run," "Rosalita," Glory Days," "Dancing in the Dark" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out" one after the other. His regular set featured classics like "Atlantic City," The Rising," "Badlands" and "Thunder Road."
If you've never seen The Boss live, buy a ticket now. Its absolutely incredible, and I can't wait to go back Wednesday night.
