    The Boss: Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band Concert Review

    My best friend Jamie and I went to see Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band!!

    Neither of us had seen Bruce before but had wanted to for a long time.

    The weather was still a bit chilly (some snow was blowing in the air while we were waiting in line) but otherwise, we had a great time.

    Bruce and the band went on at 8 PM and played until 11 PM.

    No opening acts.

    Bruce took requests from the audience as he is known to do.

    Sixth song in, he was crowd surfing.

    This guy and his band give it their all every single time they play.  Bruce even brought a lady out from the audience and strapped a guitar on her and let her play near the end of the show.

    And if you’re a fan, you will always get your money’s worth.

    Lots of songs.

    And personally, I thought it was cool that guitarist Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) is playing with the band on this tour and the current album they are promoting, High Hopes.

    He even sang The Ghost Of Tom Joad with Bruce, which was really cool.

    Such a great night.
