It's always a risky proposition to attend a Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band concert on a school night. Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park proved that - this 67 year old man and his band played for four hours and four minutes. It was his longest concert in North America and his second longest concert ever. We stood 80% of the time and as always they put on an incredible show. This was my fifth time seeing them live, and every time has gotten better (but I still miss you, Big Man). If the Boss is in town, you should go. He is our best storyteller. Seeing him live even converted MFD into a huge fan - like his music, he works the whole show from start to finish. He leaves everything on the field.
I got my love of the Boss from my dad. This is the music I was raised on. It was awesome to be at the concert with him and Carol.
A little bit of Rosalita for you:
A little bit of Born to Run for you:
Since he played until after midnight, we didn't get home until close to 2. I didn't fall asleep until after 2:30 because I was hyped up on concert adrenaline and motor vehicle fear as I just survived an escape from a concert parking lot/ride down 95 with MFD at the wheel. I thought Jimmy, Catie, Joe and I would perish to a Thompson Twins song as MFD ranted into the great beyond about assholes stuck in parking lots but we lived to tell the tale.
And now it's Friday. Tommy need sleepy.
Have a great weekend my friends!
