    The best part about Springsteen is all of the songs that Double L wrote for him back in the day and now the fact of the matter that he is just 1 more member of Larry, Inc. but he's even on the entry level compared to the originators of Larry, Inc. who I don't even have to tag right now because everybody on dawgs knows who they are.

    The River is the only Springsteen CD I ever bought. My sister had Born in the USA when I was a kid and I wore that cassette out.

    I think Most Springsteen hate is misplaced anger that should be directed at his douchie yuppie fans, like Ross Zapin and Chris Russo. Them people have done more to tarnish Bruce's legacy than he has. I don't mind him bleeding those marks out for all they are worth. @LawyerLarry would do the same if he ever gets some money marks.

    First Springsteen at Nassau Coliseum on The River tour in 1981 - I scalped a ticket from a guy in the parking lot for $40. Best show I ever saw. I still have the concert tee shirt. That concert turned out to be the one they used on BS Live boxed set - I think for "Hungry Heart".

    I would be psyched if he did it acoustic. Or maybe did the "Nebraska" songs acoustic.

    I saw them do the River the first time around. Walked up and bought stage left tickets after the band released two sections two hours before show time. It was a great show. The image of Bruce stomping the overdrive pedal and ripping into the solo from "Candy's Room" still gives me a shiver when I think of it.
    I'll probably pass on this tour, as I have on every one since. Too many douchebag fans who don't really give a shit about the songs, willing to spend to much to see a band that's missing Danny and the Big Man, plus that fidget who thought he would replace Miami Steve and his wife on the stage. It's never going to be like it was.

    At 65 years old, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (most of them are in that age range) still set the standard for live rock and roll performances. The energy, the endurance (2.5-3 hour shows), the minimal light show and focus on the MUSIC and the genuineness of a Springsteen show cannot be topped. Of course it can't be the way it was--but it is still better than 99% of the live crap that is out there.

    I agree. I'm not a Springsteen fan, but my husband is, do I've seen Bruce in concert with my husband and it was one of my favorite concerts. I was really impressed.

    I'm a huge fan but for me it peaked at the Magic tour when Danny and the Big Man were still around. The reunion tour in 1999-2000 was awesome.

    I know the road is addictive but I can't imagine there is a financial need to keep touring. From the shows I have seen and the bootleg videos, the performance has become a bit formulaic. He mixes up the set list a bit but the shows have turned into sing-a-long karaoke night for the 50+ folks who dominate the crowd. (like me)

    The worst has to be people bringing all of those dumb request signs.

    Of course Ross will find a way to glom onto every show he can for free.

    If you grew up in the NY, NJ area in the late 70s early 80s you loved Bruce. He belonged to us. I see him every time he comes around and he has never put on a bad concert. I stopped buying his albums when he put out Born in the USA and Nebraska. They just didn't do it for me. Darkness on the Edge of Town and Born To Run in addition to the River are Bruce genius albums. Asbury Park is good one too. Try those out if you have a chance. Some of the best riffs and lyrics ever written imo.

    There is a concert DVD included in the 25th anniversary edition of "Born to Run" that captures the E Street Band as a hard as nails unit on the verge of becoming legends performing at the Hammersmith Theater in London. If you want to see why Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band became the monster act they were, I highly recommend it.
